    I was told by a "source" that there is a supplier in Oregon who sells replacement alternators with the cush drive for the older 650cc Ural's, anybody heard of this?

    It's not just Oregon. Any Ural Dealer can supply a current generation of the Cush Drive Nippon Denso Alternator used by Ural. They retrofit to the 650 just fine.

    There`s a small wiring mod to do,though.

    They also cost a King`s Ransom.....abot $600 or just over £400 here.

    You can also fit the cheaper L424 alternator.....lower output but copes fine with a stock bike.

    This was my solution....http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=542296&highlight=tarka :deal

    From what i was told there is a supplier that has a lower cost alternative to the dealer $500 solution, starting to think Deep cell, alternator eliminator might not be a bad idea?

    So what or where did the front plate come from? Is this a front plate from another bike? And if so what? Does not look like a bargan solution for the problem!

    Plus it looks like fender clearance issues with the leading link front end!

    3 types available + thin version with denso alternator
    common types fit all urals (including flatheads) except ones equipped with leading link fork(thin version must be used).
    ps to reduce noise completely in this motor was used textolite camshaft gear.
    pps all made in russia/full custom/small-scale production.

    I thought about doing the same thing except with a magneto. It'd be smaller and you wouldn't need a battery to kick start it in an emergency!
