 Post subject: Metro front disk / fork question.
PostPosted: Sun Jun 04, 2017 9:47 am 
I'm new to the Metro and ruckus and bought the low down forks and disk parts.

I'm wondering if I have to swap to a ruckus triple, or can I use the Metropolitan?

I am planning on swapping the bars too and I see there are different spacers up top for the metro vs ruckus tree.

What is the overall consensus on which tree to use?

Ruckus tree is wider so you can fit a 4" wide wheel.

Ørjan.

Disk set up will fit fine on the Met tree. You need spacers/washers. If you need a wheel, I have an extra Dio Disc rim. My build thread has pics.

Thanks for the replies. I'll have to check the donor gy6 bike, but I think it has the 12x3.50 wheel, so that should work for now.

Thanks for the offer on the Dio wheel, but I think I'm going to try find a 12x3 and 12x7 set eventually.

I'm going to end up with a Metruck.

Metropolitan tree is .75" more narrow than a Ruckus tree. 3.5 isn't going to work.

Hmm. Looks like I might have to end up ordering a ruckus tree anyway.

When using the Ruckus tree you will have to modify the Metropolitan fender quite a bit, make a bracket and the rear cover won't fit. You could also use a 2013 Metropolitan fender but you still need to make a bracket and slightly modify it. Then you have the issue on the handle bar side. You're going to need an extention to clear the plastics with most bars.

Will a 12x3 rim pull the width of a 100/60-12 down far enough to use a Metro tree?

Just to clarify with you guys from reading and googling. Since this is talking about front ends I figured I would ask in here. I'm new to the Metro so I figured I would ask.

The Honda monkey wheels will fit the front end with the monkey front hub?

The Honda Dio front wheel/disc will fit on a met but I'm assuming you will need stock Dio forks or aftermarket forks.

The max wheel size in the front is 2.75 x 12?

What's the max size in the back keeping the stock exhaust? 12 x 5? 10 x 5?

What's the best options/places for wheels for the Honda Metro?
