I have taken an interest in Ural motorcycles and have noticed that they offer a deep sump for the oil which of course increases the capacity. But, they do not extend the oil pick up lower, so I wonder how effective it would be. Any insight on this will be appreciated.

Thank,
Richard

Behold a Ural. The deep sump with a high pump inlet might allow metal particles to settle out until it’s time to drain it.

Nice looking rig. I never thought about it from that perspective, but that does make sense. I would like to be able to run in warmer weather and higher speeds without worry about the engine. That's what attracted me to it.

When you say they offer a deep sump, is it an option or is that what the bike comes with?

From what I've read about Ural's, when pushed hard especially at highway speeds , they tend to get hot enough to be considered "Overheated"., They are 750cc air-cooled motors, and from the factory do not come with an oil cooler. But I saw where they can be fitted with one as a aftermarket item. They claim they can be run on the highway at between 65 and 75 mph, but most u tube posters say they wouldn't do those speeds for extended periods. I went to a dealer 2 weeks ago to try one out for size. I would have to change a few things before I hit the road on one. If you have never rode a sidecar rig before, they can be a bit unsettling, as the handle way different then a 2 wheeled motorcycle.,,,
