Over the next couple of weeks I'll be working on a build I thought some of you may enjoy. I have an 04 Ruckus I'll be swapping on a 250cc engine and wiring it up. The brakes will also be upgraded and front wheel to match new rear. Since I'll have to register it I've already started the paper work by having the police check that it's not stolen. I'll show with pictures as the work is done and inform you how the paperwork process goes.

After seeing other 250 swaps I knew the crossbar needs to be relocated so today I got the old one cut out.

Image



I used a sawzall to remove the bar then a 4" grinder to remove most of the steel left. I'll finish this up with a file and sandpaper so it will look like that bar never existed.

Built a mount for the engine but wasn't happy with it so started another today.

Image

Got it shaped like I want. Tomorrow will be another day of fitting and welding.

Image

Left the shop at 11pm and the weather app on my phone said it was STILL 90F. Hope tomorrow is a little cooler.

Took this picture so other do it yerselfers could see how I got the bolt holes parallel. Used a mount bolt to hold that top plate in place along with the vise grips. After drilling the hole flipped everything over and moved thebar to other side and drilled that hole. The mount is straight and looks to be the length I wanted.

Image

Working on the shock setup now.

Looks good so far. How do you plan to keep your mount from articulating?

I picked up a Helix a few months back, and I LOVE it. Having that kind of power in a bike that weighs 170 lbs less would be absolutely amazing. Better plan on upgrading to disc brakes... :shock:

I'll be using a sway bar link from a car similar to this one.

Image

It will go straight down from the frame to a pad on the mount. I looked at many different ways to do this and this seems to be the simplest to setup yet take any abuse I can throw at it. Thank you all for the questions and the comments.

Can't wait to see more progress on this. I'm thinking of doing the same engine in my C3.

Few parts have started to arrive....

Wiring diagram should be up soon. Almost through drawing it in color. Next pictures deal with the aforementioned articulation.
