I thoroughly enjoyed your report. I bought my Ural Deco in 2000, a '98 650 that just didn't sell. It had points ignition and I had two problems with that: once in a downpour water got into the front where the points live and shorted everything out. And once the timing was off and I drove it for a while that way with very poor performance. So I'm with the school of thought that it is an ignition issue. Funny story: I was at a dual sport ride last April and wore my Ural shirt (it was from a time in 2001 when some folks took a Ural to Bonneville and set some records for side cars). A fellow approached me and asked if I owned a Ural. I told him that I had in the past but no longer. He then said "No one but a Ural owner would wear a Ural shirt!" More than one person refered to mine as a Urinal......
