 Post subject: Vespa GTS 125 Ruckus Swap
PostPosted: Mon Feb 20, 2017 10:34 am 
Hi,

Could any one give me advice on swapping out my Stock GET for a vespa GTS 125.

Found an engine at a good price.

Currently my Ruckus is off the road after taking her up to Scotland and back, ran for a good while after i was back but seems i have blown my piston rings which is a shame as she is electrically sound and everything else seems to be working, will resurrect the GET and get it operational. But ive been wanting to do a swap for the past year and my GET braking down seems like a good excuse.

Any advice appreciated.

Grab the entire engine, wiring harness, and if possible the mounts off of the vespa frame.

remove stock get motor from ruckus

Mock up the swap and start welding.... If you need to ask where to start before using the search function you shouldn't be doing a motor swap - sorry.

:canuck:

pretty sure the vespa engine is bottom mount, so you wont be able to use a prefab mounting kit
