Ural Performance Parts

I'd like to take this opportunity to quote the entirety of the Performance Parts section on the Ural website...



-Flat Black Mufflers (set of 2)
-Universal magnetic drain plug (works in oil pan, transmission and final drive)



Makes the Ducati Performance catalog seem a bit fussy.

Performance enhancement to a ural is like putting nitrous into a 1970's volve.

Why would you want to do it?

I suppose grafting a VW bug engine would actually be somewhat of an enhancement if you could change the rear end ratios a bit to take advantage of it.

You have to. I love Ducatis...I own one and sell them for a living. The Ducati Performance catalog is a couple hundred pages long, filled with beautiful photos of upgrades that border on eroticism for any gearhead.

You gotta love a company, however, that considers dull paint and magnets as performance.

Sensing a trend here?

I love Ducatis. And that is exactly why I will not ride one.

It was your wording. The "a bit fussy" was an absolutely masterful understatement.

You forgot the "wooden floor mat"

The Red Army can not compete without wooden floor mats.
