Starting my build thread. From Atlanta and I've wanted a Ruckus for a couple years now. Needed a summer project so here goes!

Picked it up used for $1600. Its a '12 with 1600 miles on it.

Got a lowered seat frame and some red PJDM bolts.

Password JDM Stem and Drag bar during install

And complete. Relo'd the turn signals as well. Anyone how how I can get some more clearance for the battery box? I always have to cram it in there.
Image

R6 tailight and tag bracket. Wifey drew up a little tag for it. Tag isnt necessary here but hoping to get one eventually anyway as I plan to go well over the 30 mph scooter limit.
Image

Ruckhouse intake, except they sent me the wrong filter. They made it right next day by shipping the correct filter. Awesome people.
Swapped the MJ to the 83 that was supplied with the kit. Found that the needle had already been shimmed. Hit 42 mph on a downhill the first time out with this setup.

Polini variator and CDI are coming this week.

My plans are to do a GET fatty extension with wheels. Lowered all around and exhaust. I have my eye on the Turbo 8 wheels from MM. I really want exhaust next but I'm concerned about buying something now and whether it will fit after the fatty install. Any tips here?

Hey man sweet ruck! I just tot mine stretched and fattyd :) but The mnnthbx gpv2 exhaust is what i have before and after stretch. The clearance is very small but a little modification like slightly bending the header or extending the bolt holes on the flange will make the clearance better. The support bracket that comes with the exhaust will be useless with the fatty. Im currently running without a support bracket but am really wanting to fab one up bfoe it breaks on me. Not sure if it will since the exhaust is so light but yeah just a suggestion

I honestly havent had other exhausts to compare to. But it is pretty loud but i definately dont mind it. It makes me feel safer that people can hear me.
