    It was good to meet some local adv riders, looking forward to going on some rides, finding new roads and diners. Thanks for hosting Craig. Great shop and tire changing equipment. I now have a local spot to get a tire changed when I get sick of using 2x4s. Got a key under the mat??? I was going to suggest somebody do a TBsync to the Strom while I sat in a chair ( know how but its just a PITA) but the bike in boxes shamed me to silence.

    ride safe

    I think he must of had one. He had everything else one might need to do anything. I think I even saw a kitchen sink in the pile :rofl


    Maybe we can look at doing another one sometime. I had a great time, thanks for the help Chef

    Damn I need to buy a 6mm 3/8" socket, and a kitchen sink now.

    Katoom is running like a champ. I am ready to race, I guess?. One of the carb syn vacuum lines was not plugged, so what? Its a KTM.

    The new H2W jet kit is working great,:evil was going a bit too fast in 401 last night. Thx Alex, Craig and Scoot for staying late. Alex you can lecture me on wiring whenever you want brother.:ear

    I can host one in Toronto if anyone is interested (sorry not snap-on tire changer on site). Will that work for you guys or is it too far for most?

    So I'm off to Ohio to get a new motor now :deal

    Does anybody know what I am going to deal with for importing a used motor? Is it just like any other purchase or do I need to treat it more like a vehicle? I plan on driving across this weekend and grabbing it

    I don't think its anything special. Just regular import and not duty since it's "motorcycle parts"

    We have to get the story on this? Was your engine blowed up so bad it was unrepairable? :drink I continue to wonder about this ural junk :)

    No the replacement parts for the internal motor come to about $400 after tax. Then the clutch and flywheel are another $750. I found a used motor with clutch for $1250. So this way I get lots of spare parts and a motor to still rebuild over time and do up right

    The only "right way"is to use it for a doorstop and install a BMW motor/trans combo.

    $1250 for a used Urinal motor? :huh You gotta be kidding me...

    Maybe next time. I still need to find how to make the BMW fit the bike and or the trans. And still work with my fd. And the middle of riding season with no other bikes in the shed doesnt seem like a good idea.
