As Sith Slayer predicted, the air intake didn't work that well...so I bought a new rad hose and it works way better. I had problems at top end with it bogging down and stalling...its amazing the difference in just a hose makes!

For sure! I wouldn't say there's a lot, I've seen less, but 12x8 with a 140 does fit... I did have to take my dipstick out to get the wheel on though.

Picked up some stainless steel pipe yesterday, fiddled around with a dingleberry plate holder, and got a kickstand installed...all in all a productive weekend. The muffler is mounted now and it sounds awesome. Now if only it would stop raining :/

This was my first time welding stainless steel with stainless steel wire...you have to get the metal pretty hot to bond, and its so thin I ended up burning a hole in one of my welds, so I had to fix that...I'm contemplating headerwrap to hide the welds...

Got my Yamaha R6 hugger yesterday. AKA my new rear fender :) I got it for $36 on Amazon, it didn't come with bushings, but I had no problem making my own with some aluminium pipe and some rubber grommets. I also made my own bracket that screws to the engine and the rad cover.

I had to reposition both my taillight assembly and my license plat, which really ticked me off, but there was just no way around it.

Love the fender! Not sold on the taillight...might revise yet..

Picked up a Honda Grom front fender. Its a perfect fit. The pearl white with gold flake is eventually what I will paint the rest of my ruckus with!

those fenders look perfect for the build!

Also, you should GET a new brake cable! that looks like it could catch and then you would be having a bad day!
:highfive:

Thanks! Actually I did put one on Thursday, longer brake and throttle...now they're hidden in the battery box and under the gas tank. I managed to find a long 95" but i could probably use another 4 or 5 inches...i guess I'll just have to lower my handlebars next!

Longer break and throttle cables! Looks much cleaner now
I broke my right side mirror a while back, and my left side started breaking apart (some cheap $30 Amazon ones)...I spent about 5x as much as I ever thought I would on these Arrow ones, but man are they nice.

I really like the electric start button in the battery box. What product is that?

What extra hardware or brackets did you need to make the Grom fender fit on the Ruck?
