I've been wanting one of these bad boys for quite a few years now and I finally pulled the trigger after finding a 2011 fully stock with 384 miles on it 8) Needless to say I was stoked. I was so excited to start moding this mama jama I dint take a picture of it Fresh and stock. Wendahl is in the process and will be getting a lot of mod love in the future ( Edit now I just need to figure out to upload pictures.) Thanks to Version2.0 I figured out the picture deal.

Edit: I found an original picture fully stock

Well I've done quite a bit to Wendahl, including a pollini variator and rollers. JDM 6.5 extension, stripped the plastics then modified the plastics to make a luggage guard. Lowered seat frame and transformer handle bars from TRS. NCY handle bar fork and Speedo mount. I rattle can sprayed the aluminum frame with bed liner and added some red underglow. :highfive: :banger:

Wham bam thank you ma'am! So I knocked all these mods out in about two weeks :lol: and put about 500 miles "test driving" my mods just to make sure they were on there right. AND I'm loving it feels good to start turning wrenches again. :D

:highfive: High five indeed thanks again. Feels good to have some interaction on here not just loitering and mod stalking people.

Thanks man! Got the idea mod stalking for the past couple of months :twisted:

I would feel bad about taking the idea but I couldn't find it again with all the google-fu I could muster. I think I may have dreamt it up in one of my late night Lunesta fueled search frenzies.

Another tip. The TR search engine sucks bad. Use google and modify your search with: +totalruckus.

Thanks Version 2.0 I used that search tech with much success yesterday.

Wendahl update : I was going to buy a couple of junky GY6 motors with the hopes to be able to add on after I beat the breaks and belts off of my GET, and to rebuild as a side project while my scoot is doing fine. But I decided against that. Now I'm still just doing my best to make my ride as pristine as possible to squeeze as many miles as I can out of him. Changed my oil this morning after a little over 500 Mi i out on it and I'm switching to synthetic 0w30 from Mobil 1. Saw someone else on here talking about using it and it working out well for them so I'm giving it a shot. So far after just a few test rides its doing way better than the Rotella 15w40 I was running from the initial oil change. Starts first try and seems to run a bit smoother. (Maybe even a bit more top speed? :meh: still have to thoroughly test that one out)

I think I over underestimated the guy I bought it from and overestimated the neglect to the thing. Still better cautious maintenance than sorry no scootin scooter.

Ok I spent almost all of yesterday wrestling with the freaking Clutch tension spring but I got a new White pollini +7% on Ol Wendahl. Feels a touch snappier on the throttle and down hill is a HUGE difference picks up speed and goes way faster. Changed the belt and cleaned the CVT case also while I was in there.

Next up the "other" clutch springs, also going to bite the bullet on a decent shock. I paid 25$ for a 280mm no name brand one and it is nice and springy but damn it if it isn't high as hell. Its also jacking up the engine angle and pressing into the extension.

Air box delete :|

So I git myself a new shock and low and behold it "kind of fits with the air box :? So that is what started me on this road, also I like the look of no air box. I've been so psyched about riding all the time that Whendahl has become my daily driver. That means all weather driving and today has proven that FL rain = air box needed :snorkel: . It looks bad ass, don't get me wrong, but the rain issue is a deal breaker. I was really looking forward to jetting, re jetting, and re jetting again. ( I got this guy so I can tinker remember)

Yes I ran through a giant puddle. Yes I left off the fender. Yes I shouldn't have ridden in the pouring rain and while tornado warnings issued. I literally said to myself "This is a bad idea." But I'm a weather guy and my scoot needs to be an all weather scoot. Henry means "ready for battle". Wendahl you're not ready for battle if we cant battle a puddle. But for the journey documentation here are some pics :lol:

It looked good but I need function over beauty.
Image

plus I diced up my hoses :oops:
Image

poor airbox
Image

Dried quickly but aint nobody got time for a hair dryer tagging along all the time.

Just a few new accessories that makes life easier and more enjoyable :)

This thing is absolutely amazing I've got a maintainer log, insurance registration, screwdriver, socket set, Allen key, flash light, and room to spare in that thing.
Image

On Friday the 13th I got some new ink so I thought Wendahl could use some too. Not to mention 2 out of 4 screw tabs busted off on the 14th so I said fuck it.

Also My JRE Cock Shield has found a new home fits great and is useful as hell!
