anything you could possible think of at this point has already been done before and documented with pics on this site


link?


Dude go to the "Metropolitan" section and start looking. There are plenty of them spread throughout the last 1-2 years of the pic of the day thread. Use the search feature. There is no link for "a Met exactly like I want". :highfive: Here's a good example of a Met/Ruck combo

Link to the rucktro build thread:http://totalruckus.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=13257

You can always turn a Met into a Ruck or a Ruck into a Met (although I don't know why anyone would want to) but it's easier (and a whole lot less expensive) to keep the Met front end. There are an equal # of very impressive mets keeping the Met rear end.

There seem to be some play on the steering. Like when I turn all the way to the left until it stop...I it turns a little more (like an inch more). Then when I turn to the right til it stop...it'll turn a little more. So my alignment with the wheel is kinda off. I have tried tighten the bolts located underneath the speedometer stem. The extra play is when I applied a little bit of for to it. It seems like something is loose within the steering area.

I just recently bought a 2009 met, I already removed the the restrictor plate between the carb and the engine. I just bought a K&N air filter for it and I installed it. When I test drove it was really boged down at full throttle. Is it because I need to rejet the carb with a bigger jet or is it something to do with all those hoses not being connected to the filter box as i am trying to perform a filter box delete. Please help, thank you.

An improperly sealed airbox will make your scoot run like shit, so yes, those unhooked hoses may be making a difference in a bad way.

tighten the large nut on the steering shaft. you will have to remove the front center cover with the headlight in it to access.

What time of KnN filter is it? a cone filter? or a KnN drop in filter? Once you chop off the airbox though, you will probably want to rejet your carb. your airfuel mixture is not gonna be running it best and you will most likely lose performance. Remember though that every GET motor is different.

It is like a cone style but has a flat top rather then the cone shape. I bought it used on here. What size jet would be best for a filter like that.

Depends where you are man. I think i said this to you in a different thread but, every GET engine is different. Depends on weather, altitude blah blah blah. Search man. you will find really good info.

Bought my 2002 met at a police auction for 600 hundred bucks in great condition just no key! :lol:

$60 later I had a running met and it had a lock and cable in the seat!

I had used this forum in the past and I think I'm going to do a build thread just wanted to introduce myself and recommend police auctions for cheap scooters. Most were in bad condition but I found a diamond in the rough.

This is going to be my main mode of transport this summer. gas is $4 here in CO

This is not my met but it looks just like it ( to lazy to get out the digital camera and the one on my phone sucks)
