I was fortunate to pick up this met for 500 back in November
It ran well as stock but was def in need of aesthetic repair and a bigger engine :lol:


As it sits, May 2012

The first night in my garage
Image

Not too long after, this met is stripped

Trent, I got a lot of pointers from your build thread, appreciate it

Here are a couple shots
Bust out the grinder and get busy

If anything, you just have to bend the bottom left ear a little bit til it touches the crossframe, then drill the holes

The extension the killer mount gave created a useless top shock location, so fab was required

This is the work done at SF

Trust

Image

At 6' need a little leg room, these pegs should help
Image
BTW, the PWJDM pegs and kickstand fit perfectly, the body panels fit cleanly over it, except the bottom splash guard,

Very nice indeed! Clean work on the motor and shock mounts. I'm interested to see how it all looks put together with the bodywork. :banger:

Picked up a gs variator, 12 grams better than 14, :)
and new slow jets for the keihin pe24
the slow jet that was in the carb was a 55!! :shock:
I started with a 45 yesterday, runs better, but another drop in will clear it up
i think it can drop to 40, possibly 38, because its still running rich, it is only 150cc, no bb.

Riding in this SoCal weather is always tits. :D
Todo List
Wire acewell gauge and met sending unit, just waiting to purchase a ruckus resistor, mets dont have them.
Mount acewell speedometer magnet and pickup, wont fit on the front, found a spot on the back.

Finished pics soon

You could Fiberglass the under seat storage area inside, and then plasti Dip it. If done right, I'm sure you could make it look pretty OEM.

There are many articles and websites that use those terms interchangeably.
Another term for it is idle jet. Just matters on preference
