    Congrats, if I won the lottery I'd buy an M70 Retro to keep my Gear Up company. After over 2 years my Ural/BMW ratio is about 95% Ural. It's just too damn much fun!

    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.
