I like that you've included a mallet. I have memories of being out in the middle of nowhere and trying to find a suitable rock to do a bit of pounding on a sticky bolt.

Don't know much about this topic as I've only ridden once with a guy who's Ural broke down. But on that occasion he needed a hacksaw to get it going again. He borrowed mine.

Remove centerstand. A leftover from the two wheel days. Get a small bottle or scissors jack. Soft ground, sloping ground, almost anywhere off road the centerstand is useless.

Lucky he had the right tool for the job, ie a HACKsaw not a solosaw

I disagree.

The center stand is very good. Most people ride on pavement. For when I don't, I carry a couple of 2 by 4's that I could use under the center stand in the dirt.

Carry a scissor jack also. Don't remove the centerstand.

Not to totally disagree with you but have you tried to get the bike on the stand on a 2x4 in the dirt? It's hard to get the bike on the stand on the garage floor. And how do you get the hack or front wheel off while on the road shoulder. I am glad you carry a scissors jack. Happy New Year

Sure have. Roll the pusher back over the first 2 x 4, then up onto a set of 2 x 4 ' s nailed together. Pull down center stand onto the first 2 x 4 and it's easy. As far as a garage floor, that is easy also. You could go the easy way and use the 2 by 4 method , but usually I just put it on a centerstand. Remember to have one foot on the stand, then with a motion like you are trying to pull the bike over the side car, it should pop up.

As far as the front, put bike again on center stand, push the bike back so it's on the pusher, then prop 2 by 4 under the oil pan area. As for sidecar, I just lift it and let it rest on the engine guard.

Always an easy way.

If you like jacks, that's cool, but I feel pretty secure most of the time without. (I still have on just in case)

No fuzz

No need for center stand or 2 by 4's:




Parking in dirt as displayed on the home site

There is also a less extreme way, which is often demonstrated at biker fairs.
I spent too much time searching a picture. It's titled "Billy G and Odin show Ural parking". Maybe someone knows where that pic is?
