 Post subject: Anybody in KC / Rosedale / Westport Area work on Ruckus'?
PostPosted: Sat Sep 27, 2014 12:18 pm 
I've got an 09 Ruckus I garaged for the winter that I'm having issues getting to run. I am almost positive it is gas/compression related, and needs a shim adjustment on the valves. I don't have the proper tools or anything to do the job, but was curious if anyone in the KC area was willing to hang for an afternoon and drink some beer while I figure it out.

If nobody is able to help out, can anyone recommend a reputable shop in town who might get it running for me?

I had tried a new battery, as well as running some sea foam through it. Seemed to almost want to start once I ran some sea foam through it. Electric start gets it turning, but it just won't fire even by kickstart. Its about to get so nice out too!

:pissed:

anyhow, looking for other KC ruck riders to go on rides w.

Me and A friend ride around downtown KC all the time. Have you tried pulling the carb and cleaning it and draining the gas and adding new gas with new filter?

First off, join our facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1383111111907327/
MetroRucksual is our group in the KC area.

As for your bike, it probably needs a carb clean and fresh gas. Modern gas has lots of additives and other crap that makes it go bad after about 2-3 months of sitting without stabilizers.
