ordered mojo kit, and have the ruck fully disassembled for 12.5 stretch. earlier in this thread i didn't want to go the full 12.5 but now that i am doing all this i thought, if you're gonna do it, DO IT! (laughs)

handle bars scare me for some reason. if someone has detailed tutorial link I would appreciate it.

Good call on the mojo over the jdm! I'm sure you will love it.
I used youtube to get my bars on and with a little guidance from others on my build thread got me through it. Its pretty painless but I got caught on a few things. Like grinding down the controls to use them on an aftermarket bar. Also I cut my cables free rather than unhooking everything. Takes some time but its not bad. Good Luck

Here is the video I used as a guide.

moved the small filter back so it wasn't lying on the other for a cleaner look.

ya, eventually will switch the filters and seat to black to match the storm trooper helmet front end...

but thats only if I can actually pull off the helmet. I got a buddy who thinks we can pull it off, so we

shall see...

All parts are in, I should have a semi finished pic by the end of the month. The helmet will come later, because
we are still sourcing one that is the right size to work. I may photoshop one on the bike to see what it is going to
look like before going for it... would save me alot of time if it looks bobo...

thanks for reading thread. :highfive:

very fast and crude mock up of the ruck with storm trooper helmet. head lights would shine through his eyes. Would love some HONEST thoughts. smash the idea if you think its bobo.

installed the turtle head led brake lights today. :D

havent put seat back on yet, because im debating if I need to clean carb.

before disassembly it was farting a bit. could have been loose air intake. going to iron that

out before putting seat back on... no use in having to pull it right back off.
