Pre-departure Maintenance

After work today my ADVRider friend Kurt (seriousracer) came over to give a hand on the Ural and ever so glad he did!  He is a way more knowledgeable mechanic than I, and he doesn’t mind my stupid questions (I think…)

List of things we accomplished before the storm rolled in.

Changed engine oil
Changed transmission oil
Changed final drive oil
Checked and adjusted valve clearances
Inspected spark plugs
Inspected popping noise at start up, turned out the carb boot was loose. Fixed.
Repaired auxiliary electric port
