Names Adam, and I am from Orange County, CA. (near Disneyland)

As of this past Thursday, I am the proud owner of a 13' PCX150 and I have yet to get off the thing. My main reason for buying this was because I own a Honda ruckus with about $1500 into it. On the straights i've gotten up to 50 mph on it, with the original GET motor without a swap, but after going up the hills around here it would only max out at 25 and I was holding up traffic. It was time to buy something a little bigger. I saw this scooter on the ruckus forum and went to my local Honda dealer the next weekend and picked her up.

I've already started ordering aftermarket parts for "Tiffany" and they are en route! I will post more photos and shenanigans as the days go by.

Here is a list of some goodies / ideas I am planning for the 150.

purchased and installed the chatterbox X1 Slim:
Image

Yesterday I installed a cig lighter / charger system for my GPS and Phone. I don't use the under carriage for my helmet so I didn't mind placing it there. (for now)

Image

Image

Image



I've ordered the SPORTBIKELITES Led turn signal / fender eliminator combo
Image



Next mod will be a BMX style handlebar setup and stem, along with a new gps mount in the middle of the bars.

I will have a local shop called "Steady Garage" create a one of a kind exhaust for this bike.

YSS rear shocks from either thailand or direct from NJ (but it's almost $80 more from the US site??)



Here is a shot of my ruckus:

Thanks for looking,
Adam

love seeing im not the only one modding these things what bracket did you use for the lighter im using the good ole batt tender setup but it flops around in the box.

can wait to see exhaust ive been looking into some of the webike ones the yuminashi in particular.

btw if you remove the outside of the air box to get to the filter and remove the snorkle you will get a lot deeper tone, for free.

Howdy,

The lighter charger has the bracket on it, with two screw holes. So I just drilled it to the side of the under carriage. It was $7.50 at O'Reilly Auto Parts. another $1 or $2 for the 12v fuse and we had some extra wire laying around to extend it.


FOUND IT!

As for the exhaust, you are correct. You have to ship from Japan or Thailand and depending how customs feels that day, you may not even get it! Steady always surprises me with their awesomeness so I have much faith in them.

Not sure what route I am going to go with the intake, but I think I may customize my own setup. (open filter)

Here's an idea!

If you want this charger system mounted on your handlebars for easy access, you can buy the Stage6 gauge mount from drow here:

http://www.drowsports.com/product/480/Electrical/Gauges/Stage6_Handlebar_Meter_Mount_Bracket


Image


...then screw the charger system into this mount and you're good to go. That way it's easy access. I may do that myself!

Nice under seat set up!
I'll have to use your idea, but may flush mount a single 12v port into the side of the seat well.
I use a similar set up on my BR, plug in a cig liter adapter hooked up to a Battery Tender Jr and voila!

right on. I like having the dual plug so I can have one micro usb, and a regular usb hooked up at all times. I have that setup inside the battery box of my ruckus and have both cables sticking out of the top of the BB.

yea buddy! well done, clean install! Im not quite ready to take apart the front end up my scoot just yet.


The glove box was an idea, but I think I may move it to above the gas cap between my legs on the bottom like yours.
(using this pic as example - clearly not my bike)

I'm workin on it Jay!

If i order YSS shocks for the rear, I'll save $100 ordering from Thailand over YSS-USA. What a rip! NCY's are also expensive. $350+

LED fender eliminator / turn signal setup installed:


it removes the entire rear section. so from tail light down. Here's a photo of the finished product.

Image

had to take apart nearly the whole bike

Image

smaller LED below is to light up your plate.

I forgot to take a photo of a completed job, I only took video. if you look up #pcx150 on instagram you'll see it. Also, this will need an LED relay, your stock turn signal setup will not work. it is located in the battery box and will most likely need to be cut and replaced with a 552 or similar LED relay to handle faster blinkers. If not, your turn signals just remain solid.
