Now to mount the R6 taillight i got off ebay for $22 shipped.
rather then a ghetto install i made a nice bracket. Why anyone would
pay to have this bracket? is mind boggling to me!

Used OEM pigtails to the harness. With some nice mesh loom i had left over from the wire tuck on the civic.

Installed

Made a nice 5foot lock. with some Nylon Braided Mesh Loom + Thickest Highest Grade chain Home Depot had. ($15.00 for 5 feet).. A stainless steel padlock was onsale for $8.00 (reg $28.00) i used some Industrial heat shrink found at a Electrical Warehouse (building permit needed to shop at) When it heats up, it releases some hot glue inside the heat shrink.. making the nylon not slide off the chain.

Image

I also got my new shock. The old daytona just didnt hold up when riding doubles like i wanted it too :)

Image


I installed some front foot pegs for my long legs.


this is me:

Image

This is my buddy testing out the 7in frame stretch!
Image

hes much smaller then me.

u still need longer brake and throttle cables even with lowered bars? u shouldnt- check your routing.

where u at in oregon? close to Portland? we have a fairly large crew that rides twice weekly during the warm months, at least monthly during the cold. you should get ahold of us, or check us out on facebook/ruckstars scooter club. we have lots of pics up from our rides.

did you buy a ruck recently from brandon out in oregon city? he's one of our guys...

anyway, hope to hear from you, oh yeah....spring scoot is coming april 1,2 and 3. clear your schedule :banger:

so basically what i need to do to slam thing is.. is...

Get my fatty on.. see how it sets.. then see how much i need to raise the motor up under the seat.. witch will lower the frame to the ground. since i have a frame extent ion i have extra room. My friend can weld up a more thin (longer) gas tank for me.. and i can put a skid plate under the bike to prevent it from bottoming out.

I want to get the tire on.. ride it for a bit.. then tear it all down and powder coat everything...
Im in with chasebaysonline and we talked about doing a tucked milispec harness.
