 Post subject: Anyone run hard lines?
PostPosted: Sat Aug 27, 2016 5:33 pm 
Ive been brainstorming my winter teardown and rebuild, and I've been thinking about replacing vacuum lines, fuel lines and coolant lines with hard lines. Ive good searched and searched the forums with no solution.
I would prefer copper lines, as I think it would go well with my 2012 stock colored Red, White and Black ruckus. I also have a few small gold parts, which I will redo the color or replace anyways (looking at you PWJDM stretch). I would also be fine with Steel or Aluminum, but that might not look as good.
Has anyone done this before? In the bagged car scene a nice set of hardlines coming out of the tank is a major win.

Cool idea, but there wouldn't be much to hardline. Your Ruck is stock, so there are more options, otherwise just coolant and PVC. Fuel has to be flexible.

The finished product, a lot of extra work, but wanted something complete unique. My motto for builds wether it be a car or bike is "If it can be removed, get rid of it, if it has to be there, make it beautiful" and I think this setup does exactly that.

It's not stock, just the color. But just like that pic and quote farther down "if it doesn't need to be there. remove it. if it needs to be there, make it beautiful. The coolant ive already decided in my head to GET hard lines of Acrylic if it can stand up to the heat. got the idea from built PCs but they don't have 50cc of pure power heating them up. Fuel line doesn't NEED to be flexible. Obviously The fuel line into the carb and those two coolant lines would need to move easy, and That fuel pump hardline system looked good. Run that into the engine/trans area and then a flex tube out. the PCV out, from the cylinder head cover could be a solid line, and the other PCV (NCV?) would need some flex, but a hardline out and in with a soft joint in-between would work. Sorry for the paragraph. When I am on adderall and working on my ruck, my brain just fills with all kinds of silliness.
