Went to The Ruck Shop today to return that NCY Axle Bolt and exchanged it for some more bling!
Front Tree Cover Dealyo
The fitment of the Vapor into their mount was tight and I was scared to press it in without messing anything up :nervous: so while I was there, I got some tips... It's supposed to be snug and WILL scratch up the Vapor housing (JUST A LITTLE) but it's a perfect fit! One thing is that the Vapor cables are VERY short to the connectors, wish they were longer (TRS has reached out to Trail Tech to manufacture these a little bit longer lol) They did hook me up with some braided loom to cover it up!
Fancy KN Brake arm from SSS also installed.
Would have got a lot more done but Fridays are for Taekwondo Sparring for my son 8)

Got some work in yesterday.
Motor Mounted, Need to get (1) shorter bolt and a spacer for the shock bolt. (I put a spacer on the axle for the rear wheel and the shock is still very close to touching the tire) Still have to tighten everything up to be sure.
Stem & bars installed. First pic shows the bars uncut, in the other pics i cut 1" off each end.
Image

Test fit the plastics, going to have to trim or bubble a little for the carb.
Image

More plastics test fit to be sure everything still lined up. (Yes i am going to put that ruck fender back on there lol)
Image

Cleaned up the gas tank!

Moar Updates!
Drilled my bars for the controls and cleaned up the other side that I didn't get to the other day.
Although the bar lengths are even on both sides, the controls are not perfectly even, from center to one another, because I didn't take out the difference for the NCY bearing throttle kit. BUT, I did this on purpose to leave me room on the left side for a RAM mount or GoPro before the bend in the bars. Looks funny for now until i fill the gap.

Sorry about the low lighting pics, guess it's time for a phone upgrade lol :meh:
Fender back on, had to do some notching in it to fit with the TRS Tree Cover (Still thinking of breaking down and getting the Grom kit)

Starting to look like a bike again! Going back to the rear to mock up the rear light assembly and start weaving the harness in and get to soldering for the new controls. Luckily the Ruckus controls utilize the same brake light switch colors & connectors so that's one thing out of the way lol. Just have to splice in the turns, horn, kill, & start switches.

Sourced an Elite harness from Jakub and going to wack the connectors off and splice them onto my Spree harness for some plug n play action.

SHE RUNS! :banger:
Running 45 pilot and 108 main right now (the 45 pilot is what came with the Evo24, waiting on my 35-40 kit from SSS)
Time for the break in. Trying to figure out what premix ratio people are using for their 2T BBK Break-ins. Kill switch is wired backwards but whatever, everything else work as it should lol!
Of course wait for all of photobuckets ads to load for the video to play smoothly.

Ohh yea! Ran her out of gas the other day and had to walk it 1 mile :headbashing: Not use to this whole .5 gallon deal lol. Temps were a little high that day so yesterday I swapped in a 118 main from 112, and she held good temps WOT today. Think i'm a little rich and may go down to 116. As long as i stay under 350 on some 1/4-1/2 mile WOT pulls ill be happy. Now that shes running good, time to move on to some punch list items:

FRONT BASKET! :pink: For all them Grom & GY6 pink slips i'm going to be taking, FROM A DIG > GO ON GREEN pulls....

TUNE TUNE TUNE! Going to tackle the trans tuning next. Already running a yellow contra with 6G rollers in the Polini Vari. Going to drop to 5.5 or 5 to see if i can hit 65-67mph. Think i need some yellow clutch springs to hold off on engagement, wont know exactly until i get that tach wired.

Pic at the WaWa gas station, butt naked. Didn't get gas (or even check), and then ran out on the way home :rofl:

ALL TIME HIGH! 64 MPH SUCKAS! :banger:

Image

Switched to 5G rollers and of course slower off the line but still pulls hard from 15-64! Actually popped some wheelies but took a little pulling up on my part lol.

Still on 45/118 jets and broke down again with the same symptoms I had before thinking I was out of gas... But I had a full tank this time.

Found out it was my cheapo fuel filter from Ace Hardware wasn't flowing. It was clear and I couldn't see any debris. I swapped it out with a spare Ruck filter I had and BRAAP!

Temps still climbing to around 370ish on long WOT pulls... Again, only about 5 tanks of fuel ran through (not gauging mile per tank as I just fill up every time I pull in the garage to make sure I don't run out lol). Assume I am still in the break in heat zone?

I have made a decision to part out this bike as my current work load and plans will not allow me to continue with the build. Please visit the classifieds and let me know what you need! Again, thank you all for your support.

Can't be a hoarder son! Have to pick n choose my battles. CRF450 Supermoto is next. This way i can at least drive it to work every now and then, 100 miles round trip!

Going 64 on a spree frame is like Version2.0 said, FRIGHTENING AND BE READY TO DIE! KILLING SPREE!!!!! I thought the Ruck brakes would be sufficient, but I was wrong haha! Live and learn... LIVE is the key word, and I learned a lot! :highfive:
