Back in July 2012 I purchased my White 2006 Honda Ruckus with 327 miles on the odometer, bone stock. I drove from El Paso, Texas to Tucson, Arizona (+350 mile drive). Use to belong to a pretty good looking college girl, that thought it was lame to ride a scooter. I bet she thought I was a weirdo, driving across a couple states just to pick up a scooter.... When I first test drove it, I thought it was running good. Since I couldn't take it all the way up to 40MPH on the small strip of road the guy lived on. I drove it up and down the street up to 25MPH. Once I got home and took it out for a quick spin that's when I realized it wouldn't go any faster. Who knew that’s how fast she was able to run. BTW, I fit the Ruckus inside my daily beater a 1995 Saturn 4 door. By removing the handle bars and shoving it in. :banger:

After changing the oil, spark plug, air/fuel filter, new fuel pump, transmission oil, etc... She was still not running right and couldn’t break the 25MPH barrier. After trial and error, I bought a carb off one of the members on here and quickly got up to 41(happiest day). My theory, after such a long time of no use I guess the carb went to crap. Even after I tore it apart many times to clean it. Sitting with no use for such a long time, since '07. According to the previous owner. Slowly I’ve been building it, since.

As she sits now (even though I've changed parts here and there, you get the idea):

Some pics(sorry for crappy pics but what do you expect from a 5 year old phone lol):
First night I got it, mine is the one with no mirrors. Made the most out of it even though it topped out at 25mph. :banger:
Image

Mine is the one with stock mirrors and a broken left blinker (from transporting it)
Image

Image

Image

Image

2 months ago I convinced my girl to get a Met and the only one we found was a 2005 MetII, slowly building it for her. So far I got her to get up to 35mph, +10mph improvement over stock with just a Ruckus varitor, sliders, removed throttle restricting plate, replaced the diaphragm spring in the carb with a Ruckus, and a good tune-up. Voila, now shes hitting 35mph :banger: with a faster acceleration than my Ruck, untill we get to 30 I pass her.

Image

Image

Finally started working on mine:
Image

My dog decided to come in the picture too.

will upload some pictures a little later how it sits now.

thank you^^ i would like to swap but theres hardly any people that have rucks in my area, so i wouldnt even have any sort of guidance. from what i know, i think at most including myself there are probably about 9 or 10 rucks in town and about 4 of them i just saw them cruising around town by themselves, might of been the same guy or not.lol

ive wondered how much would you spend roughly in total to get the swap to run????

I feel ya, your probably gonna spend a couple stacks on the swap. Probably somewhere close to 3.5-4. It definitely get addicting buying parts, especially with all these dope ass rides.
