Help please!!!

Post by GRAUWULF »

Having just decided to get back into reenacting after a horrendous year I thought a new bit of kit would help. I,ve aquired a ural m63 correctly fitted out as an R71 with sidecar, mg etc etc. Once going they are great but can be a real bitch to start from cold. It doesnt help with the instructions all in german especially on the choke lever. CAN ANYONE advise on a best method of prestar and starting to avoid frustrated scraped shins etc.
Cheers

THIS IS GOOD ADVICE - Easystart is addictive. Fix the problem don't mask it.

First thing with these Ruski mong combo's is to find out what you actually have - what engine - does it have the correct carbs on it, is everything set correctly for the engine you have?

They are not all the same, and lots of people get in a fix by putting together bags of bits and expecting it to run straight off the box.
It is not, and never will be a German bike... you need the manual for a russian bike and suitable russian tools (lump hammer, crow bar, beer cans, cornflake packet, vodka etc) :lol:

Bung some fresh fuel in it, set timing and clean and gap the plugs and points. It should give you a starting point.

Hi Chris

Some of our boys have got urals currently in restoration. We've got a section on our forum about Krads and all things motorbike. You might find some advice on there. http://www.gdrecon.co.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=43

See you at the Victory Show mate.
