Ural Trailered Away – January 12

Towing the Ural to the dealer

After talking with the local Ural dealer this morning, they were worried I was only running on one cylinder. I know I was on Friday morning before I changed the plugs, but not sure about now. They didn’t want to take the risk, and suggested I have it trailered back to the shop.

They offered to pick it up for free as long as I rode it home. I’ll need to figure out how to get there, but I can ride it in any weather. Despite all the recent drama with it, I was a bit sad to see it loaded up. I am quite looking forward to the ride home on a fully functional Ural!

As you can see, I played with picnik a bit on the photo below. I added a vignette filter and a rounded frame.

I’ll be waiting by the phone for the diagnosis… and the repair bill. I ordered a twinmax today, so I can sync/balance the carbs on my SV. It will also come in handy with the Ural.

  1. Thanks :) I read through your examiner posts and found them very helpful. I think you're the only person to have taken a photo of the mixture screw on a keihin carb.

  2. I guess seing our motorcycles loaded onto a trailer is a universal sadness, isn't it? I echo the wish that everything get sorted out quickly and you have stress free riding to look forward to forever!
