Current to-do/to-buy are:
    -Removing the turn signals/reflectors and brackets, then come up with something clever for the signals, maybe flush.
    -Stiffen the forks and find a heavier duty rear shock.
    -Relocate/remove Speedo?
    -Bar-end mirror
    -Powder-coat/paint the controls and upper rack black
    -Moto-cross hand guards
    -Headlight stone guards... or maybe googly eyes.
    -GPS mount and 12V/USB charger
    -Underseat bag/storage

I've got plans for some of it, and no sweet clue for most of it. But I guess that's why I'm here.

Maybe every other week last summer.. Should be more this summer, since everybody got new stuff done lol.
If you could, you should trailer yours down here for a couple days or something.

Old guy here in Rothesay, just picked up a new Ruckus yesterday. Love the damn thing. The Moto Guzzi might be taking an extended break for awhile. No plans on modding it too much, other than turning it into a mini ADV touring scoot. Small windshield, hand guards, luggage for multi-day trips.

Anyone know if mounting a disc brake on the front is a big job? The drum sucks.

Doesn't look like an easy job!

I'm going to be putting my 2012 Ruckus up on the Kijiji in the next couple of weeks. It only has about 1800 km on it (I had the speedo off of it for part of last summer) and the thing is basically pristine. It's spent almost every night in a shed, and every winter in the basement. I'm only getting rid because I'm moving up to a motorcycle. I love this little thing and I'm really proud of what I've turned it into, but I've got a job in Bouctouche so I need something that can handle the commute. I figured that I should put it up here first just in case someone was interested.

Mods:
Showa Daytona rear shock (~25mm taller)
LED rear taillight/signal
LED front turn signals
LED light bar
Shaved and painted front rack
Blacked out controls
Bar-end mirror
Relocated horn
Trimmed rear fender
Dyed seat

Build Log: http://totalruckus.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=98992

I have all of the parts I took off of it, should someone be interested in putting them back on for some reason.
