I'm hoping to have mine done here shortly. I knocked out the front brakes tonight, started working the rear. The rear is a bitch. The cables too long.. I need to either find a shorter one or I'm going to hack this one up.

EDIT*** or I'll just have to stretch it out a little more lol :mrgreen:

I've been think about your Trail Tech, that thing was bad ass. I'm so close to pulling the trigger on it myself. I went to Stec to source some brake stuff and while I was there I stopped to look at one of the Japanese brands they have there for about $160.

I'm leaning towards the trail tech though.

Anyways, rear brake cable issue and I'll be out as well. Can't wait for the next meet up.

Did you get it finished? What's it looking like? I finially broke down and ordered a smaller carb for mine (Keihin PC20) the PE20 was just to big. It was sucking in a lot of fuel...it's more for a gy6 or a big bore. Gonna put it up for sale...

Hope to see your ride soon... :banger:

Been here at kadena a little while and looking at buying a ruckus, but I don't really know much about them, if someone is willing to help me out a little that would be awesome!

I haven't seen many around Kadena you might have to go down towards Naha...Maybe you'll find more in that direction...I have seen alot of the Honda Metro though....RyuZoomer posted on the other thread you ask the same question. read his post. He seems to know where to look....


Hey, RyuZoomer...are you guys meeting up anytime soon again?

Is the Ride Still on for this Sunday?

1. Who's up for it?
2. Can we get directions to this Starbucks? (Is that the one in front of Camp Lester on 58?)
3. If we have some Kadena guys going maybe we can meet somewhere on base to ride together to the Starbucks.

Hey what's up everyone? I'm out of Misawa and I plan on buying a frame with a title and building from the ground up. I'm trying to find out if I would have any issues bringing it back to the states and getting it registered with a Japanese title? or if it would just be easier to by a american model frame with title? I ask because I have little less than a year left in Japan, I want to build a ruckus, but I don't want to wait that long to get one in the states. I'm sure this has been brought up before, but I didn't see anything so I was wondering if someone could help me out.

Hmmm...that's a good question...mines from the states, an actual Ruckus. I did have to get a Japanese title to get it registered here and be able to ride it. They gave me a hand written title and I still have the American title too...

I would guess that you shouldn't have much trouble taking it with you. It goes with your house hold goods. Not considered a vehicle when it gets shipped with TMO. As to getting it registered in the states. I don't think you will run into to much trouble if you have the title. It being only 49cc and you showing them your military ID/Orders they should give you an American title for it. Good luck and hope to see you around.... :banger:

Hmmm yeah I don't think it should be a problem either. My buddy bought a chinese scooter (Epic fail) awhile back and he had a chinese title and he didn't have too much of an issue registering it stateside. I was just curious if anyone had dealt with the process before, but anyways thanks for the help and you won't be seeing me around I'm on the mainland :mrgreen:
