 Post subject: My ruckus progress!!!
PostPosted: Sun May 22, 2011 8:01 pm 
So i found a 03 ruckus for a very good price... However it has been abused :( It hasn't been ridden in like 2-3 years and was left in a shed in some small town...

I brought this out of whim and have been working on it with my dad alot... It is our weekend project. Some classic father and son bonding time :banger: .

Here when i picked it up... as you can see the photo editing made it better then it really is... it was covered in dirt.. missing parts... had a broken blinker... missing battery cover...
Image

Here is what i picked it up in... guy couldn't believe i stuffed it in there lol.

Image

Here it is when we started to tear it apart to show it alot of TLC!!!!
advice from old man... " Dont do it on my cement!!!"

Image

Image

This is the tank after... It was horrible before... covered in dirt and had rust around it... we cleaned the crap out of it!!!

As many of you are aware I've been snatching parts up from the forums left and right!!!! New ecu.. pump.. stator... battery box cover... exhaust...variators...extension kit..carbs...bars and stem and other misc parts...

When i first brought it the ecu was shot or so i think it is... since i plugged in a new ecu (08 ecu) i got it to turn over and produce spark... replaced all the fuse and relays...

dissassemble the swing arm... and gear box... cleaned everything... you wouldn't believe the crap that came out of that thing... the gear oil was black.. white and had water in it... So i cleaned the gears and replaced all the seals... Gears checked out good just the fluid was looking pretty bad...

Took the engine apart and plugged up all holes and put some engine degreaser on it and got it all shiny and cleaned up... major tlc with a tiny bristle brush....

All the rust on the frame was sanded off and new wire looms were placed in.

Finally got it to start!!! the ghetto way... i had to gravity feed the fuel into the carb... engine still runs strong and like a champ! However i'm still have a problem with the fuel pump which i'm hoping the stator will fix.

I'm planning to paint it flourescent green.. and wrinkle black on the front frame.

more pics soon on the updated progress...

also redid the wiring harness and cleaned it up a good bit to tie up the lose ends.
Started to assemble the other one and using the spare stock engine instead since i'll be building the 2t properly now with all the goodies.
