I can bring that to Rick Stetson and see if one of the crank pins moved. That sort of thing happens on roller bearing cranks like the old Kawasaki Z's and KZ's as well as Suzuki GS's. The cranks are indexed and the connecting rod pins welded to the counterweight to prevent future shifting

i think thats the right part (IMZ-8.106-01026)


It is!

I am seriously considering NOT replacing the bearings. I was so sure I will, but John mentioned the other day that I might not have to. Well, now I am really thinking about it. It would be hard to replace, plus they are pricey (even the ones I found on ebay) and they do look alright. Plus there is always oil splashing them. Thoughts?

Great! Thanks, Mike! I was just about to email you about it Smiley I could drop it off Saturday afternoon. Would that be okay?

I leave for a real vacation on Monday so I'll be in prep mode.  It sounds like a good time, though.  I'd like to see the underpinnings of a Ural. I like the more obscure motorbike mechanicals. I had a blast repairing my friends Royal Enfield motor without any manual to speak of.
