    2014 Urals also have a 3 year unlimited mileage warranty. Batteries are usually covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

    I'd try getting up to speed and grabbing the front brake hard 5 or 10 times and see if that helps. Calipers may just need some exercise.

    i'd worry more about the sight glass popping out than it being 3 or 4 oz low. No oil is infinitely worse than the wrong weight or dinosaur species.

    I really enjoy mine backfiring. The thing is so damn smooth and refined it's fun to back off the throttle and listen to it bang and pop out the MAC pipe. Done it more or less since new, 186k now...

    sounds like you got the right attitude for a Ural. 2wd takes some getting used to (no differential) but it's great fun in the slippery stuff. Got mine 2 years ago, year round daily driver...

    I ride solo. It might have something to do with the type of bike you ride. Some brands always seem to be in herds. Or maybe it's the type of person that buys a particular brand.

    Check out how fast their cars depreciate after the 3 year warranty is up. A die hard BMW fanatic I know went Acura because his 745i was eating him alive. I think the final straw was $4000 to...

    Rustoleum self etching primer and Duplicolor semi gloss engine enamel, most any decent paint will work. Did the carb tops because they had corroded for riding all winter.

    Only saw a couple of bikes today. Seems there was a "threat" of rain, amounted to a 15 minute squall. Enough to keep 99% of bikers parked in the garage, I guess.
