Shocks for my Ural :(

So 1998 Sportsman R80 installed Mostly finnished Rideable Motor and Carbs need some fiddeling

BUT This Thing Needs real shocks ! what ever They were thinking when they built these was wrong! Total loss Oiling systom and I meen Total loss = dripping everywhere and it handles ( if handeling could be considered in this application) ah... Poorly

Iv Owned quite a few Hacks Only one Ural But have some idea what it should feel like Im sure it is Shocks perhaps The tires ( yes they have air in them ) and maybe the wheels ( cant realy find any loose spokes but..)

What souloution have others come up with?

Thanks

Please dont take this wrong But millions of these things running around shockless leaking oil and theres only one aftermarket replacement?

Or am I the only one with dripping shocks?

Thanks

In Russia there are many replacement shock absorbers for Urals. Some made in India or China. Some made in Russia. Plaza SPB makes shock absorbers for solo motorcycles, sidecar motorcycles and heavy duty use. But most people will just rebuild the original shock absorbers. You may use different hydraulic oils to vary the performance and if you are knowlegable you may modify the parts inside to vary the performance also. Seals and oil and some time is much cheaper than buying replacements. After 13 years it is probable that your shock absorbers will require rebuilding.

Most shock suppliers can probably supply shocks for a Ural, but would be big money. The stock shocks are primitive but suit their intended usage and do need to be serviced occasionally.

Yours were just not properly maintained.

The new OEM and Hagon shocks make such a significant improvement in handling over the Russian shocks, it's a no brainer to me, if you can just get new shocks. When my Russian shocks give up I'm not going to bother rebuilding them.

Unless the damper rods are deeply rust pitted and scrap,just remove yer shocks...then strip them,clean them out and rebuild with new seals and fresh oil.
My 650 was transformed by a shock absorber rebuild.

The inner 'flying saucer' damper rod seal wasn`t available at the time but I found that two tap washer seals stacked up did the job perfectly.

The answers are written in the posts above,so there was no need to ask that...but here`s some extra info.

Stock Ural shocks are rebuildable and you can experiment with different oil rates.....they`re preload adjustable and always seem softer and more forgiving than the later fitment Sachs which aren`t rebuildable and seem stiff and harsh.

Hagon can provide customised spring rates if you need them.
