PostPosted: Tue Jan 19, 2016 9:55 pm 
Just recently bought a 2011 Ruck with 641 miles from a buddy for $500. It has some damage but for the most part seems to be a good score. I am currently tearing it down and getting a parts list ready. I'm pretty excited for this winter build!

I started out tearing it down, and getting to know where everything went, and clean it up a little bit.

started grinding off the tail light tab.

then started ordering parts. I got a mnnthbx intake, and a rejet kit from TRS.


Image

Image

Then picked up an NCY foot rest locally.

Image

Image


This is how it will sit for a while until I get more parts ordered. But I have some plans in the works and cant wait to see how it turns out.

Got her started today, but once I get past 10mph or give it too much throttle too quickly it dies. im thinking it is running too lean, will test in the morning

Lol. I got it from a friend of mine. Sometimes I think he regrets selling it so cheap!

So I got it running but even at full throttle it won't go past 10mph. I have done a search but can seem to find anything

Did you clean the carb? As in, take it apart, clean thoroughly, check that you can see through the jets, etc.
From its appearance, it's been through some rough times, so it's likely that it sat around and the carb is gunked up.

You've probably got a combination of old fuel, dirty jets and too much air from the new intake. Maybe start with upping the size of the jets if they're stock.

I put new jets in already. Im gonna take carb out and clean it again and add new fuel. And see if that works. The fuel I used was in my gas can in the shed so it was prolly bad.

You did say this earlier -- what size jets did you put in?

Let us know how it goes.

Contact me through our site, and I'll help with jetting if you want.

By the way, don't eat those suckers. They're probably knock-off suckers manufactured in China....

My bother had a similar issue. He took off the intake tube and put the filter right on the carb and it fixed the issue.

If that's the case, then his jetting was off. Properly jetted runner outperforms properly jetted filter on carb.
