How To Install Spare Sidecar WheelMatt
This guide will demonstrate how to install the spare wheel and brake rotor adapter for fitment on the sidecar wheel position.
Applicable to all 2015 – present Ural models equipped with a spare wheel.
CAUTION! TO PREVENT AN UNCONTROLLABLE ROLLING HAZARD ALWAYS WORK ON A LEVEL SURFACE. USE CHOCKS, WOOD, ROCKS OR OTHER SUITABLE OBJECT TO PREVENT ROLLING.
ALWAYS USE CAUTION WHEN THE MOTORCYCLE IS ELEVATED AND THE WHEELS ARE REMOVED. WORK TO THE SIDE; NEVER WORK UNDER THE MOTORCYCLE WHILE SUSPENDED BY THE CENTER STAND, HOIST, JACK OR BY ANY OTHER MEANS.
WARNING! MAX SPEED OF THE SPARE WHEEL ASSEMBLY IS 50MPH (80KMH)! THE SPARE WHEEL ASSEMBLY IS FOR TEMPORARY USE ONLY! REPAIR AND REPLACE THE STOCK WHEEL AND RETURN TO THE ORIGINAL POSITION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
Step 1: Apply the parking brake.
Step 2: Loosen and remove the two bolts securing the sidecar brake caliper with a 17mm tool.
Step 3: Lift the sidecar caliper up off the sidecar rotor and lay gently out of the way, over the sidecar swing arm.
The factory has pre-assembled all components and included necessary hardware when required to assure proper alignment between the caliper and rotor.
Note: If shims are present when loosening the sidecar brake caliper from the caliper mounting bracket, the shims will need to be re-installed in the exact same location as they were removed. Take note of shim placement and DO NOT discard shims!
Step 4: Remove the sidecar hubcap.
Pro Tip: A block of wood can aid in removal of the hubcap and prevent marring of components.
Step 5: Remove the cotter pin.
Step 6: Remove the castellated nut securing the sidecar wheel assembly to the sidecar axle using a 27mm tool.
Step 7: Use a jack, jack stand or similar method to suspend the sidecar wheel assembly off the ground.
If an assistant is available they may be employed to assist with placing a jack stand and stabilizing the motorcycle.

ALWAYS USE CAUTION WHEN THE MOTORCYCLE IS ELEVATED AND THE WHEELS ARE REMOVED. WORK TO THE SIDE; NEVER WORK UNDER THE MOTORCYCLE WHILE SUSPENDED BY THE CENTER STAND, HOIST, JACK OR BY ANY OTHER MEANS.
Step 8: Remove the sidecar wheel from the sidecar axle. Remove the five (5) socket head cap screws retaining the sidecar rotor and the sidecar rotor spacer from the back of the sidecar hub using a 6mm tool.
Note: The factory has pre-assembled all components and included necessary hardware when required to assure proper alignment between the caliper, rotor and wheel.
Caution: If wheel spacers are present on the axle for the front or back of the sidecar wheel assembly, the spacers will need to be re-installed in the exact same location as they were removed with the stock wheel or the spare wheel. Take note of wheel spacer placement if present on your motorcycle during disassembly. DO NOT discard spacers if present!
Step 9: Loosen the spare wheel retaining nut using tool from your Ural tool kit and remove the spare from the spare tire.
Step 10: Install the sidecar rotor and sidecar rotor spacer previously removed from the sidecar wheel assembly in Step 8.
Note: Mount the rotor and spacer to the splined drive flange side of the spare wheel assembly opposite the spare wheel adaptor.
Step 11: Secure with the five (5) socket head cap screws removed previously using a 6mm tool.
Note: The spare wheel adaptor that is mounted on the wheel for use on the rear position DOES NOT need to be removed for the spare wheel assembly to function on the sidecar position.
Caution: When the stock sidecar wheel assembly is repaired be sure to tap and clean all threaded mounting holes and hardware threads of old thread locking compound and apply new medium strength thread locking compound on all rotor hardware.
Step 12: Install the spare wheel assembly onto the sidecar axle, secure the wheel with the castellated nut.
Step 13: Lower the sidecar to the ground and further tighten the castellated nut to align with the hole in the sidecar axle, install the cotter pin.
Note: Once the stock sidecar wheel assembly is repaired, replace the cotter pin with a new part during reinstallation. Only reuse the existing cotter pin during roadside replacement when new parts are not available.
Caution: If wheel spacers were present during removal be sure to replace wheel spacers in the exact location as removed.
Step 14: Place the sidecar caliper back in position over the sidecar rotor.
Step 15: Reinstall the two bolts securing the sidecar brake caliper with a 17mm tool.
Step 16: Confirm the brake hose is routed properly and all hardware is securely fastened.
Note: If shims were present during removal be sure to replace all shims in the exact location as removed.
Step 17: Install wheel assembly onto the spare tire carrier.
Step 18: Secure the spare wheel retaining nut using the tool from your Ural tool kit (Part No. IMZ-8.128-24018).
Step 19: Almost done! Clean up tools and debris from the surrounding area and hit the road!
