O and make double sure u know what your buying from jiangwayne... His customer service is garbage and if u ordered the wrong part he will screw u over and u wont get your money back

Can't say I've personally had trouble. I ordered from him twice, the latest being in January. If anything, customer service was top notch last time around..maybe things have improved since getting a bad rep. in the past. Everything arrived as it should be, and I got it faster than any American suppliers who use the postal system.

Hello all, does anyone have trouble getting speed riding on Edmonton roads? Not sure if it's the wind that's affecting my speed. I can get up to 70kph if i rode behind cars, but without it seems like I'm getting 60 or less.
It also runs a lot slower at night like 55kph slow.

I have a jiangwayne type 1 exhaust and that dr pulley variator slider kit.
(i never did any jetting of that sort looks too complicated)


Here's a quote I found from earlier...

Colder weather usually results in a lean condition, so you have to increase your main jet. Check the plug though. If it is oily and black then you are running rich, if it's whitish in color you are too lean.

Could be many things though. Dirty carb, cheap gas, needs oil change, maybe it needs a warm-up for 5 before you ride..the Ruckus is a fickle beast.

Thanks for the reply. Well I know it's not cheap gas. I always put premium in, oil is new. Yeah I'll probably let it warm up or something and see

Picked up my new Ruck this afternoon. I didn't let that snow storm stop me! Rode her home from St. Albert (though I only live on the base so not that far) and loved it, man was it fun... hands were freezing but fun. Can't wait till we get some nice warm weather, I'll be on this thing all the time.

Sweet! more local riders :highfive:

I am hoping to start up maybe a weekly meet and cruise this summer, perhaps if anyone is interested (49cc friendly routes, of course!).

And if you are looking for parts I highly highly recommend Dorbyworks. Look him up on here (In the grand bazaar section) or on facebook http://www.facebook.com/Dorbyworks. He is one of the most helpful, solid guys I have ever got to deal with. He fabs up and comes up with some cool stuff! I spent waaaaaaaay too much $$ on his stuff this year, but it is so top notch and he is a customer service pro-star! :popcorn:

As for the season opener - I am a 'host', so won't be able to cruise in with anyone going because I will be setting up... but it would be pretty sick to have a group of rucks representing there along side the other 2-wheelers!

I would totally come out to those meets, and go for cruises with people whenever!

Anyone in the Edmonton/calgary area have a frame extension for sale by any chance?

Real nice to see more people Ruckin' it around E-town :banger: :canuck: :banger:

I have been busy but still find time to futz with my stock 04' it runs but is way to rich and as a result won't accelerate or idle properly and top speed is around 40km, i am going over the carb one more time aided by the service manual and i'll check the valve clearance in case i need to shim them but failing that i might have to go another route. :twisted:

Stop that!

i saw a few gy6 scooters for sale on kijiji for less then what a minty Ruck would cost so i don't need no more temptations lol, but for now it's still cheaper to mess with the GET. :mrgreen:

^^ very true
there's nothing wrong with playing around with the GET either -- in fact they can been a heck of a lot cooler than the run of the mill swap :banger:
