So, that was quick. I was planning on being patient and looking for the right bike for the right price. Well I found one, a 2002 it beautiful condition for a steal of a price (yes, I know the 2002 engine wasn't a great year, but for this price, if the engine fails I can swap in a new 750 and still be cheaper than a bike that is a couple of years old). My big question is the bike is 200mi away and it still has the crappy russian alternator, should I be worried about driving it back? I can trailer it, but I'm honestly so stoked that I would prefer riding it home. The previous owner know a decent bit about the bikes and has been very meticulous about maintenance. He had talked to the guy at Crawford cycle and was saying that the owner had said that if the alternator was still charging good and sounded good that there probably wasn't an issue.

I got the guy to knock the price of a Denso upgrade of his original asking price, so I am planning on doing that ASAP. Will the Denso just bolt on to the engine in the old alternators place even for the 2002 750?

How many miles on the bike? Has it been ridden lately? My 97 would be ok to go 200 miles now, but I trailered it home because it hadn't been run recently when i bought it and needed some nuts and bolts before it was road worthy.
Besides, if you drive out there you either have to have a friend with you or you can just load it and trailer home driving solo.

It has about 4000 miles on it and the guy rides it here and there just not very far. It hasn't been sitting or anything.

As for need an extra, my wife was going to come along either way so that wasn't as big of an issue.

I just sent a month waiting for parts and now putting things back together i find my clutch face plate bowl some it looked ok until measure it against a new plate and then you see the warp on the outer edge on it. So a quick clutch change takes time and money
$ 60 per plate and disk $300. Took the engine out to do the work and had to replace the exhast bolts and nuts broke that elbow for the breather tube and lost who knows any many nuts and washers

hopefully i get done soon and get a ride in before summer ends

I've got a 2002 (sold as a 2003 in 2003) and have replaced the Russian
alternator with a denso. It is a straight bolt-in, with an extra wire harness
that plugs into your old connections.

You have to tell them that it's for an old engine when your order the denso
conversion, because they've started putting Herzog gears on them and those
don't mesh well with the old timing gears.

I got mine from Crawfords and he put the correct gear on the Denso before
he shipped it to me. So he's the guy to talk to about this.

That's a sweet ride.

Where'd you get your red star?

RD,
Nice rig and Mrs. Where did you get the red star spare wheel cover? Of course I will need an orange star wheel cover.

Bobby Riddle (hdFlame) makes them. He's an inmate on here and at Steeds. Luckily, he's local to me, so we've used our Ural as a test bed for him on a couple of projects. This was his first red star tire cover, which MrsDonkeys just had to have after seeing the door. He makes awesome stuff, and his attention to detail is phenomenal. Bryson the giant schnauzer is a big fan of the Bobby's Pooch Pad too.

His website is kind of spartan, but it has his contact info. He can do just about anything you want.

Keep in mind though, he's a full time firefighter, and a part time maker of Ural goodies. That said, turn around isn't the fastest. Buying something puts you in a line that may take a month or two.
