INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the URAL Motorcycling Family! Your new URAL motorcycle conforms to all applicable US
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and US Environmental Protection Agency regulations effective
on the date of manufacture. This manual covers the IMZ-8.103-40 (Tourist) and IMZ-8.103-10 (Deco
Classic and BC-65 Bavarian Classic ) and the motorcycle with an engageable driven sidecar wheel, IMZ8.107 (Patrol).
This manual has been prepared to acquaint you with the operation, care and maintenance of your motorcycle, and to provide you with important safety information. Follow these instructions carefully for maximum motorcycle performance and for your personal motorcycling safety and pleasure. Please pay
particular attention to the section “Learning to Ride the URAL Motorcycle with Sidecar” and the separate
manual “Driving the URAL Sidecar Motorcycle.” It is critical that a beginning sidecar driver becomes
thoroughly familiar with the special operating characteristics of sidecar outfits before venturing out on the
roads.
Your Owner’s Manual contains instructions for operation, maintenance and minor repairs. Major repairs
require the attention of a skilled mechanic and the use of special tools and equipment. Your Authorized
URAL Dealer and URAL certified Service Center has the facilities, experience and genuine URAL parts
necessary to properly render this valuable service.
The URAL represents an important piece of German and Russian history since it has been continually
manufactured with the same general arrangement and outward appearance for the past 60 years after
Russian engineers initially copied the BMW’s of 1939. It truly is an “instant antique” as many of our
owners have said.
Since the URAL weighs 700 lb. empty with the attached sidecar, has a large frontal area and is powered
by an old fashioned 649cc engine, it is not a fast motorcycle. The URAL Rugged Classics’ top speed is
65 mph with a cruising speedsof 55 mph but only after faithful adherence to the break-in period.
If you are a vintage enthusiast, collector, local commuter, hunter, fisherman, have children, grandchildren
or a dog that likes to ride, or you just like to be noticed on a rig that draws a crowd wherever you park,
welcome aboard!
The classic boxer twin has a German heritage. So effective, simple and powerful is this design that
Porsche, Volkswagen, and even Harley (during the war with the XA model) made this design their choice.
The reliability and torque of this elegant motor is due to its original design in 1912 by Max Friz, a brilliant
German aircraft-engine builder. He devised a compact and rugged engine that delivered significant
torque for its displacement, at low and constant rpms, without the gyro effects of other twins. The military
and civilian uses became legendary. The German motorbike builder BMW, began sing the design in their
motorcycles in 1922.
Because of its opposed cylinder layout the “Boxer” as it was dubbed, turns the crankshaft in line with the
motorcycle (or airplane!). This allows for a straight-through shaft connection from the engine, through the
7
gearbox and through a stainless steel driveshaft to a rear wheel final drive gear in the wheel hub. This
drivetrain design is exactly like the millions of rear wheel drive automobiles built over the past eighty
years! It is a time tested, proven drive system made elegantly simple by the “Boxer” opposed cylinder
engine.
Today the “Boxer” engine has evolved into the high tech and electronically sophisticated and complicated
versions that can be found not only in BMWs but also in Porsches, Hondas and others. These are wondrous engines at wondrous prices! But they still retain the basic “soul” of Max Friz’s first engines. And
although it is not as evolved as the most modern “boxers”, the IMZ 750 cc is true to the earlier versions in
looks, but also has many modern internal components. These parts, like pistons, rings, valves, valve
seats and oil seals are modern and western made. The carburetors are made in Japan. These parts
make the engine more reliable and cleaner.
However, the “boxer” is still an air cooled power plant. As such it must be carefully monitored during
operation to prevent overheating. As the gear making and other machine tools in the IMZ plant are
“vintage” ones, a careful break-in of the engine is very important. Neglecting to follow the prescribed
speeds during break-in or the frequent oil changes will cause this wonderful engine to rebel against its
“abusing” owner. However, by treating the “boxer” with respect and raising it well, you will be rewarded!
So its true that sometimes simple is better, and old fashioned ideas and designs have strong reasons for
the ability to continue for a long time. It is the main reason why over millions of URALs have been sold
around the world.
Finally, all new owners will receive a complementary membership in the URAL Motorcycle Owner’s of
America (UMOA) which is an owner’s club that we have formed to facilitate communication, adventure
and motorcycling experience for the new URAL owners across America.
We look forward to seeing you at a future rally.
Any suggestions or comments are welcome! Write to us or post an e-mail on the URAL Discussion
bulletin board at www.ural.com.
Happy Riding!

CONTROLS
Clutch control lever (Fig.1, #16) . When the clutch lever is squeezed, the engine is disengaged
from the gearbox. When the lever is released, the engine is engaged to the gearbox.
WARNING: MAKE SURE FINGERS ARE NOT POSITIONED BETWEEN HAND CONTROL LEVERS AND HANDLEBAR
GRIPS OR OPERATION OF VEHICLE COULD BE IMPAIRED.
WARNING: BEFORE STARTING ENGINE, ALWAYS SHIFT TRANSMISSION TO NEUTRAL TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL
MOVEMENT WHICH COULD CAUSE POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO MOTORCYCLE AND PERSONAL INJURY.
Front brake control lever (Fig.1, #5). When the lever is squeezed, the front wheel brake is
actuated. The front brake should be used together with rear brake.
When the brake lever is squeezed, the stop signal lamps are switched on.
Kick lever (Fig.1, #11) is designed to start the engine. On pressing the lever the crankshaft of the
engine is actuated through the gearbox. The lever is returned to its initial position by the spring
inside the gearbox. Note: this is a backup to the electric starter.
Gear shift foot pedal (Fig.1, #12) is a two-arm type. When the front arm is pressed, shifting
from high to lower gears takes place. When the rear arm is pressed, shifting from low to higher
gears takes place. Since the heel-toe shift lever is short-coupled, you will find it easier to shift up if
you rotate the heel of your left foot in towards the rear arm before stepping on it with your heel.
The neutral position is fixed between the I and II gears.
IMPORTANT! The green pilot lamp glows when the transmission is in neutral and when
the reverse gear is engaged (see “Starting the Engine”).
Reverse gear engagement lever (Fig.1, #10) Forward for neutral and/or forward running and
back for reverse. The reverse gear may be engaged only after the motorcycle is completely
stopped!
To engage reverse gear, shift into neutral (or first), then push back the reverse lever.
To disengage the reverse gear, press lever up (forward) to the limit, then the gear shift mechanism
is reset to the neutral position. Now you can shift into first gear.
If desired, neutral may be selected by shifting into reverse when the first gear is engaged, and then
moving the reverse gear lever forward into neutral.
16
The rear brake pedal (Fig.1, #9) applies the rear wheel and sidecar wheel brakes simultaneously.
WARNING: DO NOT APPLY EITHER BRAKE STRONGLY ENOUGH TO LOCK THE WHEELS BECAUSE THIS MAY
CAUSE POSSIBLE LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE MOTORCYCLE. ALWAYS USE BOTH BRAKES. NEVER STOP WITH
FRONT OR REAR BRAKE ONLY.
WARNING: AN IMPROPERLY ADJUSTED REAR BRAKE PEDAL COULD INTERFERE WITH PROPER REAR BRAKE
OPERATION RESULTING IN POOR BRAKE ACTION.
Ignition Switch (Fig.1, # 19) has three fixed positions of the key. The position and switching
diagram of the ignition locks are shown above.
Off
Run
Parking
All electrical systems are off.
Voltage is supplied to all electrical systems.
Voltage is supplied to running lights only.
Note: Leaving the key in the Run or Parking position will discharge the battery.
Always return the key to the Off position before taking it out.
Speedometer is on the dash board, with trip (Note-Bavarian has no trip odometer)
and total odometer. The trip odometer is reset to zero by rotating push-button (Fig.1, # 3) counterclockwise. Note that the odometer reads in kilometers not miles.
17
The indicator lamps are mounted on the instrument board:
(Fig. 1, # 2) — turn indicator pilot lamp, (orange)
(Fig. 1, # 4) — gearbox neutral and reverse gear engagement, (green)
(Fig. 1, # 18) — head lamp high beam indicator, (dark blue)
(Fig. 1, # 20) — alternator fault indicator lamp, (red)
Note: If the red alternator fault light stays on continuously during normal operation above approximately 1500 RPM, there is a problem with the charging system or battery.
Throttle Control (Fig.1, # 6) is on the right handlebar. Turning the twist grip counterclockwise
increases engine speed.
Engine cutoff switch (Fig.1, # 7) has two positions, ignition off (up), and ignition on (down).
Low and high beam light switch (Fig.1, # 15), turn indicator switch (Fig.1, #13) and horn
push-button (Fig.1, # 14) are combined in one unit on the left-hand handle bar control housing.
Master battery switch (Fig.1, # 21) is under the seat.
Electric Start Button (Fig. 1, # 8) is located on the right-hand twist grip, below the kill switch.
The steering damper absorbs lateral kicks on the front wheel. Turning tightening bolt (Fig.1, # 17)
clockwise increases friction. This can be used while riding over bad roads.
WARNING: DO NOT TIGHTEN THE DAMPER TO THE POINT WHERE THE STEERING BECOMES STIFF. DOING SO
WILL ADVERSELY AFFECT HANDLING QUALITIES.
Parking brake (Fig. 1, # 22) is located on the right side of the motorcycle next to the foot peg. It is
engaged by applying the foot brake pedal fully and turning the handle and pushing it down to hold
the foot brake lever in the applied position.
Always disengage the parking brake before moving the motorcycle.

Chapter 3
ENGINE OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
PRE-TRIP PRELIMINARIES
Before each trip, attend to all the requirements of the everyday maintenance as outlined in this
manual. When adding fuel and oil to the motorcycle, take all precautions to keep everything neat
and clean.
Gasoline level in the tank fully filled should be 10 - 15 mm / ½ - ¾ in. below the lower edge of the
tank filler. Do not overfill the tank, especially on California models where overfilling can cause fuel
contamination of the charcoal cannister. See that the oil level in the engine crankcase is not higher
than the top and not lower than the bottom marks on the dipstick with the filler plug undone.(See
chapter 4 Lubrication System)
CAUTION: When draining and refilling oil , be careful that dirt and debris does not contaminate the fresh oil. Do not allow draining oil to get on the rear wheel, tire, or brake components.
STARTING THE ENGINE
WARNING: BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE, MAKE SURE THAT THE GEAR SHIFT MECHANISM IS IN THE NEUTRAL POSITION (BETWEEN 1ST AND 2ND GEARS) TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL MOVEMENT WHICH COULD CAUSE
POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO MOTORCYCLE AND PERSONAL INJURY. ( FOR MORE THAN JUST STARTING, I.E. IDLING, IT
IS ADVISABLE TO USE NEUTRAL GEAR.)
When the ignition is switched on, the green & red lamps on the instrument board should light up.
Make sure that the reverse gear engagement (lever) is set to the front position. This is important
since the green lamp will also be lit if the motorcycle is in reverse gear. Moving the reverse gear
lever forward will put the gearbox in neutral.
Gasoline petcock positions are as follows:
OFF
ON
19
RESERVE
Depending on the engine and ambient temperature, use the carburetor enricheners and starting
procedure as follows:
Manual Starting (without electric starter)
1. Turn on the ignition and depress the kick lever (see Fig. 1) about
1/4 of its travel (enough to firmly get the ball of your foot on the lever) with either your left
foot or right foot, depending on what position is most comfortable with your right hand on the
throttle. Take up the slack in the throttle until you can feel some slight resistance from the
return springs in the carburetors. However, do not advance the throttle, since this may flood
the engine.
Note: You may find it more comfortable to stand on the left passenger foot peg with your right
foot and kick with your left foot.
Give the kick lever a swift kick. When the engine starts, tickle the throttle (quickly advance
and retard it) to keep the engine running, but not too fast. If the engine doesn’t start, repeat
the kicking procedure. A properly adjusted warm engine should start within a few kicks. If
the engine doesn’t start, try the procedure described below in item 3. If it still doesn’t start
or fire, it may be flooded.
Note: Do not open the throttle while kicking the engine over since it may flood the spark plugs.
1a Electric starter: 1. Set carburetor enricheners as with kick starting. Unlike manual starting, however, the gearbox does not have to be in neutral as the electric starter may be
engaged with the clutch lever pulled in, or with the gearbox in neutral. Make sure the kill
switch is set to “run” and push the starter button to turn over the engine.
2. When the engine has been standing for several hours but the ambient temperature is
high (60°F/15°C degrees or above), try starting it without any enricheners. If it doesn’t fire,
then use the procedure described below.
3. When the engine is cool or cold and the ambient temperature is between40°F-60°F/5°C15°C, depress both enricheners to start. As soon as the engine starts, immediately retract
the enricheners. Run the engine at moderate speed for 30-60 seconds. If it starts to die,
tickle the twist grip throttle (rapidly twist part way towards full throttle and then back off) to
keep the engine running. After 1 to 3 minutes, depending on ambient temperature, the
engine should run smoothly without “tickling” the throttle.
4. If the engine is cold and ambient temperature is below 40°F, first, give the engine 5-10
(depending on how cold it is) priming kicks with the ignition off. This will get some oil circulated to key internal parts. Engage the enricheners on both carburetors. The engine should
20
then fire depending on how cold it is. For example, when the ambient temperature is 0°F, it
typically takes about 5-10 rotations to start the engine. As soon as the engine starts, retract
both enricheners (after 30 seconds). Then follow the running procedure described in item .
Note: It is very important to back off on the enricheners as soon as the engine will sustain itself
without sputtering. Since the URAL is an old fashioned engine design, the plugs will foul quickly
(as soon as one minute) if the engine is run too rich. If one plug fouls and the other doesn’t, the
engine will run very unevenly and have greatly reduced power.
When the engine is hot, do not choke or enrichen the carburetors. To do so risks flooding
the engine.
To start an engine that is flooded, first open the throttle fully, hold it there and give the engine
up to 10 swift kicks. If it still doesn’t fire, take the spark plugs out to see if they are wet with
gasoline. If they are wet, dry them. Clear excess gasoline from the cylinders by kicking the
engine over 10 times with the plugs out and the throttle closed. Then replace the plugs and
repeat the starting procedure described at the beginning of this section (1).
WARNING: SUSTAINED OPERATION ON ONLY ONE CYLINDER FOR EVEN JUST A FEW MINUTES COULD OVERHEAT THE CYLINDER AND CAUSE IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE TO EITHER THE VALVES OR PISTON. THUS IT IS CRITICAL TO IMMEDIATELY SHUT THE ENGINE DOWN IF IT APPEARS TO BE RUNNING ON ONLY ONE CYLINDER.
Additional Warning: Once the engine starts, do not allow it to run at a high speed as this could
cause abnormal wear of the parts and may lead to seizure of the piston pin and pistons in the
cylinders since cold oil flows through the oil ducts with difficulty and fails to ensure sufficient lubrication.
A correctly adjusted warm engine should run steadily at low speed with the throttle control twist grip
fully closed. Start driving the motorcycle for no more than 3 minutes.
OPERATING PRECAUTIONS
WARNING: MAKE SURE THAT SIDECAR WINDSHIELD IS IN THE FULL BACK POSITION SO IT DOESN’T INTERFERE WITH THE RIGHT HANDLEBAR.
To move the motorcycle from rest, shift to 1st gear only. Avoid releasing the clutch suddenly, because the engine is liable to stall or the motorcycle will start with a jerk. Do not drive the motorcycle at speeds below the recommended speeds with the 2nd, 3rd or 4th gears engaged. It is not
advisable to use the 1st and 2nd gears for a long time, unless so required by road conditions.
WARNING: WHEN SHIFTING TO LOWER GEARS WITH THE MOTORCYCLE IN MOTION, DO NOT DOWNSHIFT AT
SPEEDS HIGHER THAN THOSE LISTED IN THE TABLE. SHIFTING TO LOWER GEARS WHEN SPEED IS TOO HIGH MAY
21
SEVERELY DAMAGE THE TRANSMISSION OR CAUSE THE REAR WHEEL TO LOSE TRACTION.
CAUTION: Do not run the engine at extremely high rpms with clutch disengaged or transmission in neutral. Do not idle the engine unnecessarily for more than a few minutes with
the motorcycle standing still.
An engine run long distances at high speed must be given closer than ordinary attention to avoid
overheating and consequent damage. Have the engine checked regularly and keep it well tuned.
Valve seating and good compression is particularly important. This applies particularly to a sidecar
motorcycle equipped with windshields, carrying heavy loads and operating in hot weather.
WARNING: WHEN RIDING ON WET ROADS OR UNDER RAINY CONDITIONS, BRAKING EFFICIENCY IS GREATLY
REDUCED AND CAUTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES, ACCELERATING AND TURNING. THIS IS
ESPECIALLY TRUE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE RAIN BEGINS AND THE OIL FROM THE ROAD SURFACE COMBINES
WITH THE WATER.
When descending a long, steep grade, downshift and use engine compression together with intermittent application of both brakes to slow the motorcycle. Avoid continuous use of brakes to avoid
overheating of the brakes and reduced efficiency.
While using the motorcycle in summer, pay special attention to the condition of the tires. Keep
them inflated up to pressures specified in this manual.
RUNNING IN THE NEW MOTORCYCLE
The running-in period for the motorcycle is the first 2,500 km.
Since the URAL engine is an old fashioned design it is critical to observe this running-in procedure.
Failure to do so could result in a burned piston or valve and void the warranty.
During the running-in period, a new motorcycle requires the most careful attention. In the course
of this period, do not overload the machine, avoid traveling on freeways and climbing steep hills.
Do not race the engine or overheat it at any time. Vary the throttle setting frequently, so as to avoid
constant RPMs. Allow the new engine frequent rest periods for cooling down.

Chapter 4
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DESIGN & MAINTENANCE
ENGINE
The motorcycle is equipped with a twin-cylinder four-stroke carburetor-type air-cooled engine.
Opposed arrangement of cylinders in the horizontal plane is the outstanding feature of the motorcycle design which ensures proper cooling and balancing of the crank gear. The engine valves
are located in the cylinder heads.
In summer, carefully observe the heating condition of the engine, power transmission units and the
running gear mechanisms. Under normal heating conditions of the engine, the temperature of the
cylinder heads should not be over 356°F-428°F/180°C-220°C.
Engine maintenance. During everyday preventive maintenance, clean the engine of mud and
dust, paying special attention to the cooling fins as their fouling will impair the condition of the
engine cooling. Check engine crankcase, cylinders and cylinder heads for leaks of oil and fuel.
Check the engine performance with the motorcycle running.
Completely follow all maintenance intervals specified in the Service Coupons.
LUBRICATION SYSTEM
The motorcycle engine features a dual lubrication system, some parts are force-lubricated by
pressure built up by the oil pump, while others by splashing . A full-flow paper oil filter is provided
in the lubrication system to prolong the engine life.
Maintenance of lubrication system. During the daily inspection, check the oil level in the engine
crankcase and top off the oil if necessary.
The oil dipstick has two grooves showing the lower and the upper oil level limits. In checking the oil
level, wipe the dipstick and insert it into the crankcase without screwing in the dipstick.
The dipstick is positioned
for correct oil level
measurement.
23
Warm up the engine before changing the oil. Drain used oil from the engine and the oil filter cavity
after having unscrewed the drain plug and filter plug. Change oil filter at the intervals shown in the
service coupons. Set the rubber sealing bushing into the filter and fit the filter with the bushing
onto the adapter of plug, then screw the latter into the front cover. Now screw in the plug. Fill the
engine with 64 oz. oil, 12 oz. Hyper-Lube Oil Treatment.
Let the engine run for 3 - 5 min. Check the oil level again adding oil up to the top groove of the
dipstick. During motorcycle service, keep oil level in the engine crankcase close to the top groove
of the oil dipstick.Stop the motorcycle as soon as oil level drops down to the lower mark groove of
the dipstick and add oil.
Make sure that the dipstick is screwed down securely after measuring the oil level.
FUEL SYSTEM
The fuel system includes the gasoline tank, the three-way fuel valve with filter and two carburetors.
Fuel valve (petcock). The top threaded portion of the valve is screwed into the gasoline tank.
The lever has three positions:
Down - Reserve
Horizontal - Off
Up - On
WARNING: FUEL VALVE SHOULD ALWAYS BE CLOSED WHEN ENGINE IS NOT RUNNING TO ENSURE AGAINST
ACCIDENTALLY FLOODING ENGINE OR SURROUNDINGS WITH GASOLINE.
Note: To maintain a reserve supply, operate the motorcycle with the valve in the on position
after refueling.
WARNING: FILL FUEL TANK SLOWLY TO PREVENT FUEL SPILLAGE. DO NOT OVERFILL ABOVE THE BOTTOM OF
FILLER NECK INSERT. LEAVE AIR SPACE TO ALLOW FOR FUEL EXPANSION. FUEL EXPANSION CAN CAUSE
OVERFLOW THROUGH THE FILLER CAP VENT ONTO SURROUNDING AREAS. AFTER REFUELING, MAKE SURE
FILLER CAP IS SECURELY TIGHTENED.
Fuel system maintenance. Before a trip, check the tightness of gasoline piping joints, & proper
functioning of throttle cables.
Check fastening and condition of the carburetor flanges. Run the engine and check for proper idle
adjustment of the carburetors.
24
AIR CLEANER
The air cleaner is designed to remove dust from the intake air.
Service the air cleaner filter element as required in the service coupons.
-Tap the element to dislodge any large embedded dirt, then gently brush with a soft bristle brush.
Note- If complete cleaning is not practical at this time, re-oil the element and reinstall on your motorcycle.
- Spray K&N air filter cleaner liberally onto the entire element and let soak for 10 minutes.
- Rinse the element off with low pressure water. Tap water is OK. Always flush from the clean side
to the dirty side. This removes the dirt and doesn’t drive it into the filter.
- After rinsing, shake off any excess water and let the filter dry naturally.
- After cleaning, always re-oil the filter with K&N air filter oil.
Air Cleaner
1- Air Cleaner Body
2- Filter Element
3-Air Intake Pipe (Left)
4- Air Cleaner Lid
5- Crankcase Breather Tube
6- Fastening Bolts
Important! From time to time, check the joints and seals on the intake branch pipes for tightness
and/or damage. Intake of unfiltered air will cause premature wear of the engine parts and can alter
the air/fuel mixture.
25
IGNITION SYSTEM
The ignition system incorporates the power supplies, ignition coil, Hall effect pickup, electronic
module, two spark plugs, a set of low and high voltage wires and the ignition switch.
For the electric circuit diagram of the motorcycle with electronic ignition system refer to Ignition
System schematic diagram.
Ignition coil The ignition coil has two high voltage terminals, each supplying one of the cylinder
spark plugs and operating in conjunction with the moving coil pickup.
Periodically, check all wires to be sure they aren’t crimped or have loose connections.
Spark plugs. In certain situations, spark plugs can quickly foul with carbon or soot. The plugs can
be cleaned but it is easier to put in a new set of plugs when on the road. We recommend that you
purchase an extra set of these plugs from your Authorized URAL Dealer and carry them in the
motorcycle at all times.
WARNING: DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN THE SPARK PLUG WHEN MOUNTING IT ON THE ENGINE, SINCE THIS COULD
DAMAGE THE CYLINDER HEAD.
Functioning of ignition system. Both plugs fire simultaneously on the left and right-hand cylinders, one spark being formed when the compression stroke terminates in one of the cylinders and
the other during the exhaust stroke.
CARBURETORS
32mm CVK Keihin Seike carburetors are used on of the URAL motorcycle for compliance with US
EPA requirements. They are preset with fixed mixture jetting and adjust automatically for altitude
variations. This is due to the vacuum activation mechanism of these constant velocity type carburetors.
WARNING: TO AVOID SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE, DO NOT CHANGE CARBURETOR SYNCHRONIZATION, JETS, OR
THROTTLE LINKAGE. TAMPERING WITH THE CARBURETORS OR OTHER CRITICAL EMISSION ELEMENTS IS ALSO A
FEDERAL OFFENSE AND MAY SUBJECT THE OFFENDER TO CIVIL PUNISHMENT AND FINES. THIS AIR COOLED
ENGINE MUST ALWAYS RUN ON BOTH CYLINDERS AS EVENLY AS POSSIBLE. WHENEVER ONE CYLINDER IS NOT
FIRING, STOP THE ENGINE AND DETERMINE THE CAUSE AND CORRECT IT BEFORE PROCEEDING.
26
Enrichener off
Enrichener on
Use the enricheners only if needed to start a cold engine. Turn the enricheners off as soon as the
engine has started to prevent the possible fouling of the spark plugs.

Chapter 6
POWER TRANSMISSION
The power transmission of the motorcycle is comprised of the clutch, gearbox, drive shaft and the
final drive.
CLUTCH
The clutch relays torque from the engine to the gearbox, disengage the engine from the gearbox
during shifting of the gears and during braking to a stop. The clutch provides for smooth starting of
the motorcycle from rest, protects the power transmission parts against damage when the engine
speed or drive wheel speed is suddenly changed. The clutch is of dry double-disk design.
The clutch release mechanism is controlled by the lever on the left grip of the handle bar. With the
clutch lever released, the engine is engaged to the gearbox. When the clutch lever is squeezed,
the engine is disengaged from the gearbox.
Use the clutch lever for starting from rest and for gear shifting. Under conditions of heavy
traffic, when gears frequently have to be shifted, do not to slip the clutch too much, as this will
cause heavy wear of the disks.
GEARBOX
The reverse gear must be engaged from neutral.
Shifting the gears is best accomplished by pushing down on the toe piece for first gear and to
downshift from higher gears. To shift up into second, third and fourth gear, use the heel plate (with
either heel or toe) and push down quickly and firmly.
CAUTION: Severe damage due to insufficient lubrication of gears, shafts and bearings can
result if the oil level is allowed to get lower than the specified level.
FINAL DRIVE
Maintenance of propeller shaft and final drive. Lubricate the needle bearings as determined by
the service coupons. Dismantle the final drive and use a grease gun to stuff grease into the cross
through the grease cup.
Final Drive maintenance includes tightening the nuts which fasten the final drive to the swinging
fork arm. Failure to tighten the nuts may result in loose joints and the destruction of the final drive
cover. Change the final drive oil as determined by the service coupons. Undo the filler and drain
plugs and drain the used oil. Fill the casing with fresh 20w / 50 Castrol oil and flush the final drive
by turning the rear wheel several times. Drain the 20w / 50 Castrol oil and refill the final drive as
specified ( See lubrication list, chapter 11 )

RUNNING GEAR
MOTORCYCLE AND SIDECAR FRAMES
The frame is the principal bearing element of the motorcycle to which all the units and assemblies
of the motorcycle are attached. The motorcycle is furnished with a twin closed frame of welded
construction.
SPRING LOADED HYDRAULIC SHOCK ABSORBER
The suspension features cam-type adjusters used for varying the pretension of the supporting
springs to suit the load and the road condition. The degree of tension of the springs is adjustable
allowing two positions. The first (lower) position corresponds to the load due to the motorcycle’s
own mass, the driver’s and one passenger’s (sitting in the sidecar) mass; the second (upper)
position of moving cam corresponds to the maximum load.
When the motorcycle is used under the maximum load, adjust the spring in the sidecar wheel
shock absorber simultaneously while adjusting the compression of the spring in the motorcycle
shock absorbers.
Care of shock absorbers. Fill the shock absorber with 105 cm³ of hydraulic fluid. Each time
during maintenance, check the bolts fixing the top and bottom ends of the shock absorbers for
tightness.
31
ADJUSTMENT OF SIDECAR INSTALLATION
The sidecar should be installed in a definite position relative to the motorcycle. The position is
determined by the camber and toe-in of the motorcycle and the sidecar wheels. An incorrectly
aligned sidecar will drag the motorcycle to either side and cause extensive tire wear. If the motorcycle is not stable on the road or is difficult to steer, check the alignment. Checking and measuring the alignment should be done on level ground.
Check toe-in of the motorcycle and the sidecar wheels
with two straight bars applied to the side faces of the
wheels just below the axles. The toe-in should be 5 to
15 mm or 3/16 to 9/16 in. at the front wheel. When
adjusting, unbolt the top of the slanting legs fastening
the sidecar to the motorcycle, slacken off the bolt
clamping the lower rear bracket, adjust the position of
the bracket relative to the rear tube of the sidecar frame
to obtain necessary toe-in of the wheels. Tighten up the
bolt fastening the bracket, adjust the length of the legs
and secure them with bolts.
Check the lean-out of the motorcycle using a level
gauge or protractor with a plumb bob and a ruler. Adjust the two inclined legs by screwing the forks in or out.
When the lean-out is correct, the rider will remain
vertical while riding on the local roads which may be
slightly sloped to assist with water runoff.
Check the toe-in while the motorcycle is running on the
road. With the toe-in properly adjusted, the motorcycle
will not pull to either side while running at normal road
speed. If it pulls to the right, increase the toe-in, if it
pulls to the left, decrease the toe-in.
CAUTION: Double check for correct toe-in before
making any change to lean-out.
32
FRONT FORK
The telescopic front fork used on the Cruiser models is equipped with inside springs and the
double-acting hydraulic shock absorber.
The leading link front fork used on the Tourist and Patrol models use a front lever-type fork with
two interchangeable spring-hydraulic shock absorbers.
The friction type steering damper is made up of two steel washers, moving and fixed, two
fiber washers and tightening bolt with a head. Friction between the steel and the fiber washers
makes turning of the front fork more difficult.
WARNING: DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE STEERING DAMPER SINCE THE MOTORCYCLE WILL BECOME VERY
DIFFICULT TO HANDLE.
STEERING HEAD BEARINGS
The steering head bearings must be adjusted periodically to avoid excessive play which might
cause steering instability. When properly adjusted the front fork should turn with just a hint of
bearing drag, but not free play or obvious resistance to turning.
WARNING: IMPROPER ADJUSTMENT OF THE STEERING HEAD (E.G. TOO TIGHT) WILL MAKE THE MOTORCYCLE VERY DIFFICULT TO STEER. THIS ADJUSTMENT IS CRITICAL FOR PROPER HANDLING OF ALL MODELS.

Chapter 8
WHEELS AND TIRES
The URAL motorcycle is equipped with easily demountable interchangeable wheels with the cast
(aluminum) brake drum on short spokes of the same size. Inner splines provided at the right-hand
side of the hub receive the splined end of the final drive hub in case the wheel is used as a drive
wheel. The bearings are packed with grease (refer to lubricant chart).
Removing wheels. To remove the front wheel, set the motorcycle on its stand, lift it by the front
wheel and put a rest under the front portion of the motorcycle frame. (You may want to purchase a
scissor jack or bottle jack to carry along in the sidecar storage compartment. This will make it
easier to change any of the three wheels on the rig.) Turn home the adjusting screw of the front
brake cable and install it so that the screw slot falls onto that of the bracket head. Pull the brake
lever up, take the cable enclosure end out of the notch in the adjusting screw and extract the cable
through the slots of the screw and the bracket. Bring the hand brake cable end out of the hole in
the brake lever making the cable match the lever slot. Slacken the nut of the union bolt at the endpiece base of the fork left-hand leg. Screw out the axle turning it clockwise (left-hand thread) and
remove the wheel together with the front brake.
To reinstall the front wheel on the motorcycle follow the reverse order of the above operations
seeing to it that the torque stop on the brake cover encompasses the right-hand leg of the fork.
To remove the rear wheel of the motorcycle, lift the motorcycle onto the center stand. Undo the rear
wheel axle nut and take it off together with the washer, slacken off the nut on the union bolt of the
left-hand leg of the swinging arm, pull out the rear wheel axle with the help of a wrench bar and
remove the wheel.
To reinstall the wheel on the motorcycle follow the reverse order of operations. Prior to reassembling, wipe the axle and grease it. Fitting the rear axle, turn it as you push it in to avoid jamming.
To remove the spare wheel, use the wrench from the tool kit that has two studs that fit the two holes
in the round nut holding the luggage rack down.
Care should be taken to keep tires properly inflated. Check before riding when tires are cold. Do
not over-inflate tires.
WARNING: IMPROPER TIRE INFLATION WILL CAUSE ABNORMAL TREAD WEAR AND COULD RESULT IN UNSTABLE HANDLING. UNDER-INFLATION COULD RESULT IN THE TIRE SLIPPING ON THE RIM.

CONTROL LEVERS AND CABLES
HANDLE BAR AND CONTROLS
The handle bar is mounted on the front fork through two brackets secured on the cross-piece of
the front fork. The handle bar is adjustable in the brackets.
The throttle control twist grip is linked to the carburetor throttles by flexible control cables. The
clutch lever is linked to the clutch release arm by a cable. The front brake lever is connected by
the cable to the lever mounted on the front brake drum cover.
BRAKES
The motorcycle is equipped with shoe-type brakes. The brake consists of a drum, a drum cover,
shoes and lever activated cams.
The front wheel brake is of the double-cam type.
The brake shoes are provided with adjusting bolts to compensate for the wear of the shoe linings.
The adjusting bolts of the brake shoes may be used for adjusting the gap between the brake shoes
and the brake drum.
For optimal performance of the brake, tighten the brake cable adjuster until there is just the slightest
drag on the wheel. Then back off the adjustment 1 or 2 turns.
For checking the gap, the cover of the brake drum and final drive crankcase are provided with an
inspection hole, closed with a rubber plug.
The sidecar wheel brake is connected to the rear brake pedal.
The sidecar brake drum cover is secured on the sidecar wheel axle and is held from rotation by a
torque stop. Sidecar brake shoes are interchangeable with the motorcycle brake shoes.
The rear wheel brake is mounted in the final drive case.
BRAKE ADJUSTMENT
The front wheel brake is adjusted by an adjusting screw located on the drum cover and the foot brake,
by an adjusting nut situated on the rear end of the brake tie rods.
39
Proceed to adjustment of the foot brake starting from the rear wheel, having first slackened the nut
on the tie rod of the sidecar wheel brake. Then adjust the sidecar wheel brake by tightening the
nut on the brake tie rod. After the foot brake has been adjusted properly, back up the nut on the tie
rod of the sidecar wheel brake by 2-3 turns to keep if from pulling to the right when applying the
brake.
Brakes should be “burnished in” during the initial running in period. Follow burnishing procedures
carefully. Make approximately 100 stops using 75% of full braking power. This can be done over
several periods and need not be done in one session. Choose an area with clean, dry pavement
and no obstructions. Travel in a straight line and apply both the hand (front) brake as well as the
foot (rear and sidecar) brakes.
After burnishing the brake shoes, adjust your brakes on each wheel to reduce the gap between
shoes and drums. This procedure will ensure maximum braking performance during the running-in
period and is essential before raising your top speed, after your URAL has been carefully run in
(after 2,500 km).
WARNING: BECAUSE BRAKE PERFORMANCE IS A CRITICAL SAFETY ITEM, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU SEE
YOUR URAL DEALER FOR THESE SERVICES.
BRAKES MUST BE INSPECTED FOR WEAR AS PER THE SERVICE COUPONS IF THE BRAKE SHOE FRICTION
MATERIAL IS 1/16 IN. THICK OR LESS (THE THICKNESS OF A NICKEL) THE SHOES MUST BE REPLACED IMMEDIATELY. FAILURE TO REPLACE SHOES WHEN NECESSARY COULD RESULT IN BRAKE MALFUNCTION AND PERSONAL INJURY. IF YOU RIDE UNDER ADVERSE CONDITIONS, STEEP HILLS, HEAVY TRAFFIC, ETC., MORE FREQUENT INSPECTION, 1,000 KM OR LESS, WILL BE NECESSARY. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING THE REAR
BRAKE ONLY.
CONTROL CABLE ADJUSTMENT
The control cables are adjusted by screw adjustments at the cable ends.
With the control levers released:
· for the clutch a play at the clutch lever end should be equal to 5 - 8 mm/0.2 - 0.3 in.
· for the brakes 5 - 8 mm/0.2 - 0.3 in. play of the front brake control lever and a play of the rear
brake pedal equal to about 25 - 30 mm/1- 1.2 in. of the full stroke of the pedal are required
· for the carburetors - carburetor throttle cables synchronized
With the control levers (handles) fully depressed:
· for the clutch — complete disengagement of the engine from the transmission; noiseless shifting
of gears means good adjustment of the clutch cable.
· for the carburetors — lift of throttles to the maximum and equal height
40
· for the brakes — effective braking of the motorcycle before levers reach
limits.
The brakes are checked when the fully laden motorcycle is running on dry asphalt or concrete
pavement. This check is done at a slow speed.
CONTROL CABLE MAINTENANCE
The daily preventative maintenance involves checking the functioning, condition and fastening of
the tie rods, cables and braking action. Refer to the Service Coupons for lubrication schedule.
As per the service coupons, check the condition of the brakes, clean the brake shoes and the
active surface of the brake drums, lubricate the hinge pins and the cams of the brake linings, the
joints, the linkage of the rear and sidecar wheel brakes, the lever axle, the parking brake, the
throttle control twist grip, the lever pins and ends of cables used in the clutch, the front brake
control, the control cables used in the clutch, the front brake and the throttles.
SPEEDOMETER
The speedometer scale is illuminated with two lamps. The speedometer is driven by the main shaft
of the gearbox via a flexible shaft.
After every 10,000 km add five or six drips of oil into the union butt end to lubricate the speedometer axle.

Chapter 10
ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
The electrical equipment of the motorcycle includes power supplies, auxiliary instruments and
electric wiring.
Electric power supplies are a battery and an alternator with a built-in rectifier.
A single wire system is used for wiring the electric circuits, i.e. a single wire carries power to the
electrical devices and the frame and engine serve as the second wire (called the “ground”). The
negative pole of the battery is connected to the motorcycle frame through the battery master
switch. The alternator makes electrical contact to the motorcycle engine and frame through its
mounting bolts.
Battery supplies electric power to all the systems of the motorcycle when the engine (and alternator) have stopped. For maintenance information refer to the separate section in chapter 11.
An alternator with built-in rectifier is driven by the engine camshaft driven gear. The alternator
is secured with two studs on the engine crankcase. At the drive side, the alternator cover is so
designed that by turning the alternator on the studs, the backlash adjustment of the gear mesh gap
can be made.
Electric horn. The motorcycle is equipped with a horn which sounds when the ignition is on and
the horn button is pressed. The horn can be adjusted with an adjusting screw located at the rear
portion of the horn body.
Headlight. A 7" diameter DOT approved sealed beam headlight is used on the US URAL. Adjust it
so that the high-beam is horizontal when the motorcycle is in its normal loaded condition.
The stop light switch is secured on the frame bracket by means of two nuts. If the stop light
either stays on or doesn’t come on, loosen the nuts and adjust the stop light switch position either
up or down on the frame & retightening the two nuts.
The master battery switch serves for disconnection of all the motorcycle systems from the storage battery for a long-term parking.
The switch is located under the seat.

Electrical Symbols
Diode
The diode is a solid state device which passes electricity in one direction only. Electrons flow through the diode
against the direction of the arrow. Diodes typically use 0.7 volts to pass electricity.
Push Button Switch
When the button on the push button switch is pressed, the bar moves down to make a path for the electricity
between the two contacts.
Single Pole Double Throw Switch
The switch carries electricity from a single input to none, or one of two possible outputs.
Shorting Switch
The switch carries electricity from a single input to none, one, or both outputs.
Single Pole Triple Throw Switch
The switch carries electricity from a single output to one of three possible outputs. If two or more switches are
ganged, then they move together with each other.
Resistor
Passive device used to reduce the flow of electricity from one part of a circuit to another.
Coil
Many turns of wire which act as an electromagnet when electricity flows through the wire.
Fuse
A fuse is a fusible link of metal that is designed to melt if more than the rated amount of power is passed
through the device. The melting of the fuse will immediately stop the flow of electricity in a circuit. Fuses are
rated in “Amps”
Electrical Circuits
Lead acid batteries such as those found in motorcycles are designed for a charging voltage of 14.25 volts.
Batteries which are subjected to greater than 14.25 volts for extended periods of time can suffer permanent
damage due to the electrolyte boiling dry. Charging voltage of less than 14.25 volts will result in an inadequate
charge delivered to the battery.
Automotive batteries operate at 12 volts. This is not enough voltage to harm people in any way. However, the
battery stores a huge amount of electricity in the form of electrons. If the electrons are allowed to flow from the
battery without restriction, then the wires carrying the electricity will become hot enough to melt. The melting
wires are extremely dangerous and can easily burn you.
Most problems in automotive electrical circuits are caused by poor connections. Make sure that all connection
points are clean and tight.
If the flow of electricity through a wire is interrupted due to a break in the wire or a poor connection, then the
circuit is said to be “an open circuit”
The flow of electricity through a circuit always takes the path of least resistance. If there is an accidental path of
extremely low resistance created in a circuit, the circuit is said to have a “short circuit” A short circuit will
usually result in the melting of the fuse protecting that circuit.

ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE
During the daily preventive inspection, check the functioning and the condition of the electrical
equipment. Inspect and or replace the spark plugs and ignition leads as required in the Service
Coupons. The gap is readjusted by bending the end of the side electrode.
Care of alternator. In the course of daily inspection, check the fastening of wires to the alternator
terminals, fastening of the alternator on the engine crankcase, backlash of the gears (by listening).
In case of too little backlash of the drive gear, excessive wear and overheating of the alternator
bearings take place. (See alternator description in Electrical Equipment Section)
Check for proper tightening of:
· nuts of the binding post bolts
· the alternator clamping screws
· the alternator fastening nuts
as often as outlined in the Service Coupons.

Chapter 11
MAINTENANCE OF MOTORCYCLE
Maintenance should be performed after the specified total kilometers run irrespective of the technical condition of the motorcycle.
Different service duties and technical condition of the motorcycle may necessitate a change in the
intervals.
The Lubrication Chart indicating lubrication points of the motorcycle is given in Fig. 35. A summary of lubrication maintenance is given in the lubrication chart.
Cosmetic Maintenance
The enjoyment and resale value of your vehicle is greatly enhanced by consideration to the “look”
and cosmetic perfection of your vehicle. Due to the numerous metal surfaces on a sidecar rig,
special care must be taken to prevent rust from occurring and/or to removed any rust or oxidation.
Blue-Job â is a product recommended to remove the oxides from exhaust pipes and other chrome
hardware. This is available from your URAL dealer.

REQUIRED LUBRICATION
The URAL has been certified for EPA with premium grade SAE 20W/50 petroleum detergent
oil. This oil has been used in both the engine and transmission.
To further protect the URAL’s air cooled engine, which operates under high temperature compared
to liquid cooled engines, a special oil treatment product has been developed and produced for
URAL motorcycles by Hilton Oil Co. This product, Hyper Lube Supplement, has proven in tests to
lower the engine’s operating temperatures and reduce the friction and wear in the engine, transmission and final drive.
Hyper Lube Supplement should be continually replaced whenever changing the oil in your URAL.
The following chart shows the amounts and brands of oil and oil treatment used originally in your
motorcycle.

Note: Since the URAL engine is an old fashioned design, some leakage, seepage or dripping of
oil and/or other lubricants is normal. It is not indicative of any malfunctioning and therefore is
not covered as a warranty item unless motorcycle operation or safety are materially affected.
58
CARE OF MOTORCYCLE PAINT
When washing the motorcycle, use a weak stream of cold or slightly heated water. Never use a
pressure washer! Do not remove dust and mud by rubbing the surface with a dry cloth as sand
particles will degrade the surface and the paint will rapidly lose its brilliance. While washing, do not
use soda solution, kerosene, citric acids or mineral oils. If the surface is stained with mineral oil,
degrease by wiping with a rag. If after removal of mud and dust with a jet of water, some dirt is left
on the surface, remove it with the help of a sponge, a soft hair brush or a flannel and water, but not
allowing separate water drops to dry out on the surface. Finally, polish the painted surfaces with a
dry soft flannel.
To repair painted areas, each motorcycle is furnished with a bottle of matching touch up paint.
For patching proceed as follows:
· clean the surface with turpentine
· rub the damaged spot with a waterproof abrasive cloth and water rub thoroughly
· paint using a soft brush or a spray gun.
After patching let the surface dry in air for 15 min, then proceed with drying at 212°F-248°F/
100°C-120°C with the aid of heat reflector or an electric lamp until the coat is perfectly dry.
Bear in mind that enamels are flammable. Color match may not be perfect due to humidity, fading,
temperature and other variables.
The painted surfaces of the motorcycle feature natural gloss. In case some dull spots appear,
remedy them by polishing as follows. Take a solution of wax polishing compound and having
washed the dull spots thoroughly, smear a thin film of the compound with a soft wad (cotton, cotton
gauze of flannel) over the surface. Rub the polishing compound making circular motions with the
wad. In 3 - 5 min. of drying, wipe the surface with a clean dry piece of cloth or flannel until luster
appears.
PRESERVATION AND STORAGE
If the motorcycle is put in storage for the season, arrange it on supports and proceed with the
preservation treatment. Check that the wheel tire pressure is within specifications. Store the
motorcycle away from acids, alkalis, mineral fertilizers and other harmful substances.
Prior to placing it in storage, clean the bike thoroughly, drain the carburetors, or start the engine
and let it run with the gasoline cock closed to remove gasoline in the float chambers of carburetors.
59
Then spray storage oil (WD40) into each cylinder through the spark plug holes. Turn the crankshaft by depressing the kick lever pedal to distribute lubricant over the interior of the cylinders.
Lubricate the surfaces of chrome and zinc plated parts with a rust inhibitor. Smear all the points
provided with grease cups with commercial grease. Seal the outlet holes of the mufflers.
Before starting a trip on the motorcycle that was under preservation, proceed with the jobs listed in
the section “Pre-Trip Preliminaries”.
Winter Considerations
Motorists in many areas of the US experience the use of salt and other chemicals that are applied
to road surfaces in the winter.
Salt or other caustic chemicals should always be removed from your bike’s surfaces with fresh
water as soon as possible.
Undercoating of fenders is recommended for those areas with salt and/or fine gravel or sand. See
your dealer for details.
BATTERY
Storage batteries on the motorcycle should function at ambient air temperature from -40°C to plus
60°C/ 40°F to 140°F.
As the battery is in service:
· regularly check the voltage for 13.8 - 14.2 V
· do not allow the battery to discharge.
· use only distilled water to maintain the normal level of electrolyte.
· coat bolts, nuts, washers and tips with petroleum jelly or battery grease. Use two wrenches for
clamping or undoing the nuts to avoid breaking battery parts.
Do not short the terminals together to check for sparking.
Before storage, fully charge the batteries, wash the battery surface with water and wipe dry, clean
the bolts and nuts of dirt.
WARNING: BATTERIES CONTAIN SULFURIC ACID WHICH CAN CAUSE SEVERE BURNS. AVOID CONTACT WITH
SKIN, EYES OR CLOTHING. ANTIDOTE: EXTERNAL — FLUSH WITH WATER. INTERNAL — DRINK LARGE
QUANTITIES OF WATER FOLLOWED BY MILK OF MAGNESIA, VEGETABLE OIL, OR BEATEN EGGS. CALL DOCTOR
IMMEDIATELY.
60
Caution: When charging the battery, disconnect the positive terminal (+) from the battery
to prevent damage to the electrical components Never jump-start the motorcycle!
WARNING: BATTERIES PRODUCE EXPLOSIVE HYDROGEN GAS AT ALL TIMES — ESPECIALLY WHEN BEING
CHARGED. KEEP CIGARETTES, OPEN FLAME, AND SPARKS AWAY FROM BATTERY AT ALL TIMES. VENTILATE
AREA WHEN CHARGING BATTERY. ALWAYS PROTECT HANDS AND PROTECT EYES WITH SHIELD OR GOGGLES
WHEN WORKING NEAR A BATTERY OR ACID. KEEP BATTERIES AND ACID OUT OF THE REACH
OF CHILDREN!
CAUTION: If battery is filled to a higher level than specified, some of the solution will be
forced out through the vent tube when battery is charging. This will not only weaken the
solution, but also may damage parts near the battery. To prevent battery case damage
caused by pressure build-up, be sure vent tube is properly routed and not kinked or obstructed.

PATROL MOTORCYCLE WITH ENGAGEABLE
SIDECAR DRIVE
DESCRIPTION
When engaged by the operator for “off-road” use, the sidecar wheel is driven by a drive shaft
connected with the motorcycle main drive with a universal joint.
Sidecar Drive Disengaged
Sidecar Drive Engaged
NOTE: the sidecar drive should only be engaged when the motorcycle is stopped, and only
when venturing “off-road”
HANDLING DIFFERENCES FROM THE SINGLE WHEEL DRIVE
When the sidecar wheel is engaged, the motorcycle handles differently from the standard (single
wheel drive) motorcycle. When the rear wheel and sidecar wheel are “locked” together on paved
surfaces, maneuvering is very difficult. Forcing the rig to turn on paved surfaces with the sidecar
drive engaged is extremely hazardous and can result in loss of control of the motorcycle. It also
voids the warranty.
The dual wheel drive should be engaged whenever poor traction is encountered in any off-road
condition such as mud, snow, streams, rocks, gravel, loose dirt, sand, etc. In these conditions the
extra traction afforded by the sidecar wheel will be very helpful, especially if some weight is also
added to the sidecar. Some difficulty in making sharp turns may still be noticed.
63
SIDECAR MAINTENANCE
Check before driving that the final drive swing arm, propeller shaft fork and sun gear flange are
bolted tightly.
Grease the moveable slot joint of the drive shaft sufficiently every 5,000 kilometers. Do not over
grease the slotted hub of the propeller shaft as it may prevent the slotted shaft from moving freely in
the hub.
The bearing unit of the sidecar wheel where an oilless bearing is installed in, requires no maintenance.
64
Chapter 13
LEARNING TO RIDE THE URAL MOTORCYCLE WITH
SIDECAR ACCESSORY
The URAL sidecar motorcycle, since it has three wheels, behaves quite differently from either a
solo motorcycle or a car. For these reasons the following label has been attached to your motorcycle tank:
WARNING: LEFT-HAND AND RIGHT-HAND TURNS MAY BE DANGEROUS. EXCESSIVE SPEED AND AN UNWEIGHTED SIDECAR MUST BE AVOIDED. READ AND PRACTICE THE TECHNIQUES IN THE PROVIDED “DRIVING
THE URAL SIDECAR.”
The bottom line is that, like any other motor vehicle, if the URAL is driven beyond its design limits,
you can get hurt. Properly driven, since you have the added stability of the third wheel in case of
sand, ice or slippery road conditions, the URAL will give you a much safer ride than a solo motorcycle.
Finally, you will enjoy the fact that the URAL will not expose you to tipping over at stop signs, which
has happened all too frequently to beginners as well as experienced solo motorcycle drivers.
Even though special skills are required, these skills are not difficult to master. They are clearly
defined in the Driving the URAL Sidecar Motorcycle manual.
This manual is included with each new URAL sidecar motorcycle outfit. Before driving your new
URAL , carefully study this manual from cover-to-cover, fill in the exam questions, review the manual
to check your answers and practice all the maneuvers outlined in the manual before going out into
traffic.
If possible, an experienced sidecar driver (preferably your Authorized URAL dealer) should ride
along during your first ride. If not, put about 100 LB of ballast in the sidecar during your initial
training. Although an experienced driver can safely drive the URAL with an empty sidecar a beginner should always have ballast or a passenger in the chair.
Check with your local URAL Dealer to find out your particular state’s sidecar driver’s license requirements.
As described in the Driving the URAL Sidecar Motorcycle, the sidecar weight, drag and geometry
will result in the following characteristics for your URAL :
65
When you accelerate, the URAL will pull slightly to the right due to the inertia and drag of the sidecar.
When you let off the gas it will pull slightly to the left due to the inertia of the sidecar.
Note: The Patrol with engageable sidecar wheel handles differently with the sidecar driveshaft
engaged and cannot turn on paved roads. For this reason, the sidecar drive must only be engaged when operating the vehicle off-road or where snow, ice and mud conditions are encountered on road.
The best way to make friends with your URAL is to take it to a large, paved, non-congested parking
lot. Practice starting and stopping from various speeds, shifting up and down, accelerating and
decelerating in each gear, turning right and left at slow-to-medium speeds. Move on to practice the
general maneuvers outlined in the Driving the URAL Sidecar Motorcycle.
Finally, practice lifting the sidecar. To do this drive in a clockwise circle about 20 feet in diameter.
Gradually increase your speed until the sidecar wheel lifts from the surface 6 - 12 inches. Then
roll off the throttle and ease steering pressure on the grips so it gradually comes back down. Repeat doing this until you feel comfortable with the wheel in the air. Remember, the moment you roll
off the throttle it will come down. When you have mastered “flying the chair” to the point where you
can keep it in the air for a full circle you will have a good feel for the speed and turn radius that will
lift the sidecar. Then carefully experiment with larger and smaller circles.
If, after gaining proficiency with the URAL , you plan to drive on the street with an empty sidecar,
go back to the parking lot and practice the above maneuvers as well as all other maneuvers outlined
in the Driving the URAL Sidecar Motorcycle with an empty sidecar. You’ll find that the sidecar will
lift much more readily when it is empty, especially if you enter a decreasing radius turn (such as a
freeway off ramp) at too high a speed. This is why we recommend generally carrying about 100
lbs. or more in the sidecar.
66
SAFE OPERATING RULES
Before operating your URAL it is your responsibility to read and follow operating and maintenance
instructions in this manual and follow these basic rules for your personal safety.
· Know and respect the Rules of the Road in your state.
· Use only URAL approved parts and accessories.
· Gasoline is extremely flammable and is explosive under certain conditions.
· Refuel in a well ventilated area with the engine stopped. Do not smoke or allow open
flames or sparks when refueling or servicing the fuel system. Always close the fuel
supply valve when the engine is not running to prevent flooding of the carburetors. Do
not overfill fuel tank. Fill tank slowly to prevent fuel spillage. Leave air space to allow for
fuel expansion. Do not fill more than about an inch below the lower edge of the tank filler.
· Motorcycle exhaust contains poisonous carbon monoxide gas. Do not inhale exhaust
gases and never run the engine in a closed garage or confined area.
· Before starting engine, check for proper operation of brake, clutch, shifter,
throttle controls, correct fuel and oil supply.
· A new motorcycle must be operated according to a special break-in procedure (see
Running-In The New Motorcycle).
· Operate the motorcycle only at moderate speed and out of traffic until you
have become thoroughly familiar with its operation and handling
characteristics under all conditions. If you are an inexperienced rider we
recommend that you obtain information and training in correct motorcycle
riding technique. For the sidecar motorcycle, carefully study the Driving the
URAL Sidecar Motorcycle.
· Do not exceed the legal speed limit or drive too fast for existing conditions.
Always reduce speed when poor driving conditions exist. High speed
increases the influence of any other condition affecting stability and the
possibility of loss of control.
· Pay strict attention to road surfaces and wind conditions. Any two or threewheeled vehicle may be subject to upsetting forces. Wind blasts from passing trucks,
holes in the pavement, rough road surfaces, rider control error, etc., may influence the
handling characteristics of your motorcycle. Should this happen, reduce speed and
guide the motorcycle with a relaxed grip to a straightaway position. Do not brake
abruptly or force the handlebars as this may aggravate an unstable condition. New
riders should gain experience under various conditions while driving at moderate speeds.
· Operate your motorcycle defensively. Remember, a motorcycle does not afford the same
protection as an automobile in an accident.
· Wear an approved helmet, clothing and footgear suited to motorcycle riding. Bright or
light colors are best for greater visibility in traffic especially at night. Avoid loose flowing
garments and scarves.
· The exhaust pipes and mufflers get very hot when the engine is running and remain
too hot to touch for some time after the engine is shut off.
67
· Wear clothing that will completely cover the legs when riding and avoid
contact with the exhaust system.
· Do not allow others, under any circumstances to operate your motorcycle
unless you are certain that they are experienced, licensed riders and are
familiar with the operation of your particular motorcycle.
· When leaving the motorcycle unattended, remove ignition key from switch.
Protect your motorcycle against theft.
· Safe motorcycle operation requires mental awareness and good judgment
combined with a defensive driving attitude. Don’t allow fatigue, alcohol or
drugs to endanger your safety or the safety of others.
· Maintain your motorcycle in proper operating condition in accordance with
the service coupons in this Owner’s Manual. Particularly important to motorcycle
stability is the tire inflation pressure, tread condition, and proper adjustment of
wheel bearings and steering head bearings.
Do not operate motorcycle with loose, worn or damaged steering
system or front or rear suspension system as handling will be adversely
affected. Contact your dealer for repair of steering or suspension system
wear or damage.
· Do not tow a trailer.
· At street intersections, give the right-of-way to the vehicle on your right. Do
not presume too much when you have the right-of-way, the other driver
may not know you have it.
· Always signal when preparing to stop or turn.
· All traffic signs, including those used for the control of traffic at
intersections, should be obeyed promptly and to the letter. SLOW DOWN
signs near schools and CAUTION signs at railroad crossings should
always be observed and your actions governed accordingly.
· Never anticipate a traffic light. When a change is indicated from GO to
STOP (or vice versa) in the traffic control systems at intersections, await
the change.
· When intending to turn to the left, give signal at least 100 feet before
reaching the turning point. Move over to the centerline of the street (unless
local rules require otherwise), slow down passing the intersection of the
street and then turn carefully to the left.
· In turning either right or left, watch for pedestrians as well as vehicles.
· Do not leave the curb or parking area without signaling and seeing that
your way is clear to drive into moving traffic. A moving line of traffic has
the right-of-way.
· See that your license tags are installed in the position specified by law and
that they are clearly visible under all conditions. Keep them clean.
· Ride at a safe speed — a speed consistent with the type of highway you are
on, and always note whether the road is dry, oily, icy or wet. Each varying
condition on the highway means adjusting your speed accordingly.

California Emissions Package
Fuel Tank & Charcoal Canister
The fuel tank has a gasoline vapor vent, which is connected by tubing to the activated charcoal
canister. As fuel vaporizes in the tank, vapor pressure will increase. The vapor pressure will drive
the vapors to the activated charcoal canister where they will remain trapped. When the engine is
started, a negative pressure at the air intake butterfly valve will draw outside air in through the
canister vent and flush the trapped vapors through a second tube into the intake manifold for processing by the engine.
Butterfly Valve
The butterfly valve is a vacuum driven valve, which either opens or closes the intake manifold to
outside air. In the resting state, the valve completely seals the intake manifold to outside air. When
the engine is running, negative pressure opens the valve and allows outside air to enter the intake
manifold.
99
Electric Valve
The electric valve has two states. In it’s resting state, the valve vents the butterfly valve to atmospheric pressure. This will cause the butterfly valve to close and seal the intake manifold to outside
air. In it’s active state, the electric valve passes negative pressure from the 1-way valve to the
butterfly valve actuator causing the butterfly valve to open. This will then allow outside air to enter
the engine intake manifold.
1-Way Valve
The 1-way valve allows gas flow in one direction only. This converts the pulsating negative pressure
from the carburetors into a constant negative pressure for operating the various pneumatic devices.
Breather Valve
The breather valve is operated by negative gas pressure. The breather valve has two states. In it’s
resting state, the valve seals the carburetor vent lines from outside air. During engine operation,
negative pressure from the accompanying 1-way valve activates the breather valve and opens the
carburetor vent lines to atmospheric pressure. This allows the carburetor float valves to operate
normally.
Air Box
The air box is a sealed container, which conducts outside air to the engine intake manifold through
the air filter. This is required to ensure that air-borne contaminants may not enter the engine and
damage any internal components.
Restrictor
The restrictor passes only very low flow rates of gas. This performs two functions. It prevents
negative pressure present at the air box during acceleration from being transmitted to the carburetor vents, causing the carburetors to overfill with gasoline. It also conducts atmospheric pressure to
the carburetor vents when the engine is at rest, to enable the carburetor float valves to stop the
supply of gasoline to the carburetors.
100
Theory of Operation
When the engine is running, pulsating negative pressure is created at the carburetor inlets and the
air box. This negative pressure is passed through a 1-way valve where it is converted into a constant vacuum. The vacuum is passed through the energized electric valve to the butterfly valve
actuator. This vacuum causes the actuator to open the butterfly valve. This action allows outside air
to enter the air box.
The pulsating negative pressure from the carburetor inlets is also passed to another 1-way valve
where it is converted to a constant vacuum. This vacuum is then used to open the breather valve.
When the breather valve is open, it allows atmospheric pressure to enter the carburetor vent lines
to allow the carburetor float valves to operate normally.
101
When the engine is at rest, the un-energized electric valve removes the negative pressure to the
butterfly valve actuator by venting the butterfly valve actuator to atmospheric pressure. This causes
the butterfly valve to close, sealing the main opening of the air box to the atmosphere. Any gasoline vapors in the intake manifold remain sealed within the engine.

IMZ - URAL - STARTING & RUNNING TIPS
Starting the Engine
1. Open carburetor enricheners on both carburetors (pull lever out) if temperature is below 50 degrees.
2. Make sure fuel petcock is open “ON” or on reserve “RES.” Fuel petcock handle should be in 6 or
12 o’clock position.
3. Ignition “RUN,” “KILL,” switch set to “RUN” (down), gearbox in “NEUTRAL,” master battery
switch (under seat)
“ON.”
4. Push starter button until engine fires,
OR…
5. With foot on kick-starter lever, push foot down swiftly and hard open the throttle grip slightly.
Repeat until engine fires (usually 2 or 3 kicks). Turn OFF enricheners.
6. Let the engine warm up for 3 - 5 minutes, depending on the temperature.
7. After the engine has warmed up, operate the motorcycle under moderate loads and speeds for
several miles until the oil has circulated well and the engine and gearbox are functioning smoothly.
Trouble Shooting
If engine does not start with above method, the problem(s) may be one or more of the following:
1. Engine is “flooded,” i.e.; the spark plugs have been “fouled” by too much throttle ( and fuel ) and will
not spark.
Correction: Flooding is corrected by removing the spark plugs and drying them.
2. Too little fuel is getting to the engine due to low fuel in tank and/or plugged fuel lines or fuel cock.
Correction: Clogged fuel lines or filter are corrected by blowing through fuel lines from carburetor end to
remove any debris from lines. Fuel cock filter can be cleaned by removing and cleaning.
3. Little or no spark is available to the engine due to a low battery, (dim headlight), or loose ignition
wires.
Correction: Dead battery is corrected by charging battery, loose or broken ignition wires are corrected by
replacing broken wire(s) or by reconnecting wires at either the spark plug cap, the ignition module, or at the
ignition coil under the front cover of the engine.
*4. Not enough compression in the cylinders due to excessive wear or incorrect adjustment
of valve(s).
* item 4 above requires the attention of a qualified mechanic at your URAL dealer.
***WARNING!...Reverse Gear Damage... WARNING!***
Attempting to engage reverse gear while the motorcycle is moving may cause SEVERE damage to the
gearbox and will void the warranty. Engage the reverse gear only when the motorcycle is completely
stopped and is either in 1st gear or neutral.
