PostPosted: Mon Apr 12, 2010 9:24 am 
[color=#FF0000]Hi,

Just bought a NYC extension frame with extend cables and lowered seat, now thinking of adding a 10x 8 fatty. Have been searching around for fatty kit

1) Bowls (spelling) excellent quality and sort of high price.
2) S2 fatty kit, good price but kinda mickymouse.
3) My favourite, American Ruckus fatty ($269 for the wheel, tire and hub only ready for installation)

My questions is i might have to reposition the engine to the right a bit by removing the oem metal spacer on the engine and install the engine off set a bit, that way the wheel will center.

Might need to add a small 1 or 3 inch spacer for the upper shock absorber mount as well.

What do you guys think?

Yes, you do need to shift the engine over. Yes you do need to shift the shock location. Yes you do need an engine extension. Yes, your NCY kit will twist.

but if you read the description you also need the 50cc extension kit so that makes the total about $550 dollars. Don't know if it will work with your NCY extension kit for sure.

Did you see the picture of the Ruckus for the engine extension??? Damn.... looks like the engine is taking a nose dive into the ground!!! Bet that's real good with all the oil up into the head and none in the crankcase. :shock:

Why is the exhaust pipe just a pipe connected to nothing on the kickstart side? :lol:

If you look close it has a small header tube coming straight down out of the bottom. That thing must have three 90 degree bends in it... :ucrazy:
