Ural ignition

I just noticed that I have the 2 piece interruptor. It has not caused any trouble, but it is just a matter of time so I am going to order a 1 piece.

While I'm at it, I am thinking of getting either:

A. a spare Type V in case mine dies, or

B. a complete points setup to keep as a backup (anyone know where to get one?)

A Ducati ignition or Power Arc are too expensive for me right now. What say ye?

Points don't have the "advantages" of electronic ignition, but can last a lifetime and is a very inexpensive option for a "backup".

Ducati I believe is the manufacture of the new ing system.
Specially made to up grade the Ural.
But many are still using the original system w/o an issue.

Yes, but it is hundreds of dollars. I am looking for cheap backups in case my Type V fails.

You're mixing up two possible problems. If the two piece interrupter comes apart, it will not read right. The fix there is a new (or spare) interrupter. If the Type 5 module fails, you have to replace it. That's a separate problem. I think, could be wrong, that a points system will be work around for either failure. I have had a Type 5 fail. It does so without warning and you're dead in the water until you replace it.

Oh, I know it's two separate issues. Actually, I have no ignition problems at all. Replacing the interruptor is a preventative measure, and getting a (cheap) backup for the Type V is just some extra insurance/peace of mind.

New Type V is not available, so if it goes, you would have to replace it with either the new duc, powerarc, or go back to points.

I would switch the rotor out before you have problems with it. You could also remove the current two piece rotor and weld it to keep it from spinning.

I sort of like the idea of old school points, and I may keep my eyes open for a used Type V. A new Ducati or Power Arc is a bit too much money just to install it as a preventative measure.

I worried about the Type III ignition failing on my first Ural 11 yrs. ago and bought a points kit to carry. After 10 yrs of carring it I finally took it out of tool box un-used. I still have it somewhere but It will not fit my New Ural as they no longer drill and tap the front of the engine case to mount it. I recently saw some Point Kits on E-bay.
