Drive it to work today to work out any bugs that may come out and not did they!!

The ride to work wasn't bad riding position is a little awkward with my knees in my chest, but don't have the funds for rearsets right now and don't wanna drill giant holes in the plastics so I can't complain to much...

On the way home though!!! Oh my had to stop for gas and went to fire her back up and just click click click battery is dead... thought that was weird but saw I didn't turn off my leds and don't know when they got turned on... so maybe that drained the battery??

Then I drive over to the air pump and notice oh crap my duckwing is cockeyed went to move it and it is totally loose!! :pissed: glad I attached the turtlehead to it or else I won't be one of the few with one!! Guess the heat of the engine plus the vibration of the scoot did a number on the double sided tape...

But in doing so it pulled my connections loose for the tail light and license plate lights

Then filled my rear tire and drove on

Got to a stop light and heard some dragging/clunking looked back and my coolant bottle is dragging the ground!! Guess the vibration loosened that too??? Or maybe I didn't tighten it all the way idk

Limped home and fixed them...

Hopefully that is all the gremlins this bike had

Blue locktite is your friend. I did almost every bolt on my Ruckus before the Crawl last year, nothing has come loose yet.

I use red on the important parts... the clutch axle and varilator axle especially.

Sometimes it takes blowtorch type heat to get it off.

Looking good! I'm so inspired to get mine done and running.

Sadly, I'm going to the other side of the country for the summer...3,000 miles from my MetRuck :(

Jealous of you guys. Tried everything in like to make that trip- just couldn't pull it off.

What happens if one of you guys wins the z125? Got some extra room on the trailer? Lol.

I expect lots and lots of pics and vids from you two.
