Posted in the Ural Motorcycle Forum
Newbie here. My last bike was a 650 Triumph that I sold in about 1972. I'm considering buying a Ural. Some come with a mounted spare, some without. I wonder how often anyone actually changes the spare. It looks cool, but it's unnecessary weight if rarely used, and a patch kit weighs a lot less. Does the spare fit all three wheels?

Does the spare tire fit all three wheels? Well, what year Ural are you contemplating? Several years ago Ural started using a hydraulic front disk brake. The spare will not fit the front of those bikes.
How often is the spare actually used? Rarely. It's a good place to keep a mounted tire for when one of the others gets slick, and it could come in handy in a pinch. But, practically never.
it seems you're thinking of weight and performance. If so, a Ural is not for you. These are slow, smell the roses bikes. If youu want performance, get a sport bike.
