figure I've shaved off enough of my knuckles to post a build thread now.. huge thanks to the TR community, as I wouldn't have tried any of this without.

picked up the black 09 ruckus with 3 miles on it, 17 & change out the door. Rode it stock for a month or so while I haunted this very forum looking for inspiration, trying to figure out what, exactly, I wanted to do with the little beast.

here's the only pic I could find of the stock condition:

Image

signal ear removal, new signals & horn relocation:

Image

pegs.. not much to go wrong here:

Image
cloud-9:

Image

bars, stem, speedo & indicator relocation:

Image

mirror:

Image

shaved light rack reflector tabs, kijima clear lenses installed in BB. Open CVT:

Image

brake tower removed, dingleberry & turtlehead installed, rear fender trimmed:

Image


got a few months deep now, no turning back!! massive thanks to all the TR folks for all the insight, reviews, how-to's, and inspiration..

PWJDM coolant tank & Doppler shock mounted up; (soon to be removed) airbox needed a little trimming and patching with duct tape but seems to be A-OK for now:

Ti yoshi cyclone, great rumble!!
