 Post subject: Big Ruckus Performance Tuning Index
PostPosted: Fri Feb 29, 2008 11:53 pm 
Since we often get newcomers with the same questions and it usually takes a while before they learn to use the forum Search feature well enough to get reliable results, I decided to create a quick index to the most commonly asked questions on performance mods.

:BR: Some things to think about before attempting any modification: :BR:

1) Any performance modification will void your warranty and in most cases, relieve Honda of any liability in case of an accident!
If that's an issue, don't do it!

2) Any performance modification may decrease the reliability of your bike. Honda builds some of the best bikes made and their bullet-proof reliability is legendary. Most Hondas are slightly detuned or restricted to give a comfortable safety margin. Anything you do to bypass those restrictions may decrease that reliability.
If that's an issue, don't do it!

3) The mods listed here are for informational purposes only...in no way do we suggest that you try these, but if you do, remember as owner/mechanic, you are solely responsible for the safety of your bike and, by extension, your own personal safety!

If that's an issue, don't do it!



And if all that didn't scare you off, then read on! :D
