that doesnt sound too bad cost wise for a swap. When I swap mine, im thinking of having the whole thing painted some different color you never see a ruckus in. When I get the money if one of yall would be so kind as to help me order it all I would buy you some beers. Also when it comes, Id be more than happy to share a case or two of widmer beer if I could get some help putting it all together. I dont plan on spending 16k on my ruck. more like 4-5k max.


I have stacks of new and used parts, along with good distributors so if i don't have it in-stock i can get it!... And prob cheaper then other shops also you wont have to deal with ordering/shipping from multiple place's.



Yeah man, I suppose I could go through you for most of the stuff I need. It seems like I could save a buck and sounds like you have some good connections. I see beer being a part of your near future.

thanks for the tips on keeping the fucker from sputtering out. increasing the idle worked just fine. I dont plan on spending anything on my engine until it is a gy6. I need to find out where to buy a full kit including the engine, harness and the plug and play kit. How much did you spend on yours? Im hoping to have it Gy6'd by mid april.

Can be done for as cheap as a g but you'll just spend more going back thru and buyn th parts you want. I have 5gs ish in my build and still climbing. An RPRO build can cost 16k plus. Food for thought


My GY6 build cost (so far):
Engine- $330 for a new GY6 to my door from T-Motorsports
Exhaust- $115 from a TR member
Harness- $150 MAXUSA
Engine Mount w/ optional hardware- $100 MOJO weld-on mount
Wheels w/ tires- $70 from a friend
Cables- $20 each from scooter shop in town
Composimo angled carb flange- $42
Primer and Spray Paint for painting wheels- $20 Home Depot
Paint and body work on rear frame- $280 done by a friend

Total: $1147

This is all I have spent so far and I have been rolling for a few weeks now. Check out my build thread for an idea of what my scoot looks like.


thats cheap.... i got so much more wrapped up into mine a lot more. dont forget brakes

:lol: Ahhaha I just realized this could be taken wrong in so many ways. Sorry man but all I meant was that you're like 150lbs right? 200 plus being the size of a small sail really doesn't help me. :wasted:

Howdy strangers!

I can't remember the last time I logged into TR. Phew!

Agent K and I are heading down for Spring Scoot this year; and I was wondering if any of you all plan to attend. (I apologize in advance for not researching the thread before asking the question; it's just that I'm using my phone and it isn't the easiest to look at this site via mobile... Ah, but I "digest.")

Last year, Hollywood was able to get permission from someone (maybe SeanSean?) to park at a shop outside of the city a short jaunt, and we were hoping someone might be kind enough to help us out again.

We will be staying at the Hotel 50, checking in 3/30, leaving 4/1. If any of you awesome Portland folk would be willing to allow us to park our truck and trailer near by, it would be most appreciated.

If you can help, please PM me or feel free to call/text me.

Thank you, in advance, for your help; and we hope to see everyone there!

NitroGary has his ruck up for sale. Flip moved. The couple are outta the ruck game. The guy that worked at the zoo is still riding, aka me. But we still have many people that ride. Look out tho 150cc rucks are soon to hit the roads.

Damn, seems like they are droppin like flies! Its been a while man, cant wait to ride with you all. I will be watching out for the 150's. within 2 weeks I will have about 1100$ to spend on my swap kit. I just need an exact list of everything I need before I buy it all. I know I need an engine, a mount (weld on or bolt on idk which is better) a harness, a fuel pump, new brakes, new back wheel and an exhaust. Ive been lurking for the past few days but I am unsure of other things I need. Some people seem to buy more when they swap than other people do. I will be putting much more into my ruck after the swap, so I want to do it right.

I think there are more new riders to the whole clan than what has dropped out.
