Ahh I didn't think of that either :? i'll probably get some dio wheels
I guess I got a little anxious, started ordering stuff,

I should take my time... do it right.. plus its still too hot here to be working on anything outside..

I should really go with a real exhaust this time.. (Yoshi)

I need advice on some Front forks, wheels, Intake and Exhaust. Simple setups, would like to try a front disk brake and a Dio wheel?.. I need a 2-3 inch drop I'm guessing in the front.
Is the Yoshi exh the best? and worth it?

I think I will go that route, :banger:

I was reading over at Drow sports that the RRGS Ruckus Low Down Front Forks V2 has a 3 inch drop, I think that would be sufficient.

Does the RRGS come with those springs, or do I have to install them?, do they make a full kit with brake lever, disk etc, So they only thing else I would need is a Dio wheel/tire & where's a good place to buy..

Old post of mine. There is a chrome extension out there called "Photobucket embed fix" your need to install to view.

If Compismo Spring are installed it will drop theme further.

Here's stock vs RRGS w/ compismo springs.

Ok,

I so ordered from TRS & everything will be here tomorrow
The RRGS low down drag
TVR AIR INTAKE SYSTEM with jets & shim
REED PAR BLOCK OFF
TTOtach

Ruck front and rear brake cables from Partzilla

BR exhaust for now (until I get a Yoshi)

I just need to swap my met gears in the ruck swingarm and build the semi hardtail.

What are you using for sealing up the gearcase, Permatex optimum Black?

I'm going to tackle this by myself I guess, unless someone wants to help me. :meh:

You'll need this also to run the rrgs with the stock brake set up.

I use Hondabond for sealant.

What do you need help with?

ahhh I didn't know about that drum adaptor. but I see how that would make sense now... Ill order tomorrow.. thank you!

hondabond ok, never heard of it. I guess I could give it a try.

As for help, I can do it myself, I'm sure of it.. I guess what I'm meaning is that I did have help last time. Can be a little tricky hanging it all back up, I'm still having trouble installing the Google chrome Bucket fix so I can reference any questions. I definitely want to center up the rear wheel this time. I forgot how to swap the met gears. I'm just getting ahead of myself, talking out loud... I should wait a couple of days anyhow, it still pretty hot here. I have some big contracts next week don't think I will have the time, so that's got me somewhat frazzled, and My only helper moved to PA...
