Thanks Rowe94
I got the wheel from eBay - for like 25 bucks.
It's a 10x5 .... which worked fine with my full MET set up - but, since changing to the RUCKUS rear end .... I'd rather run a 12x5. :)

Here's a test run / mock-up Pic

Working on a rear wheel upgrade - from 10x5 mini to a 12x6 wheel.

Does anyone have a 1' inch (FLP type) spacer that fits a kymco hub, for sale .... or lying around in the extra parts stash ?!?
Wanting it ..... for the rear disc brake set up. :banger: LMK !!
Thanks !!

I don't have any pictures of relocated CDI and battery - but, it's right in front of the engine under the floor board.
I'll snap one, on the next tear down

Do It .... :banger:
Seems like a lot more people are interested in building METRUCKs, now.
Been seeing more and more.

I'm just waiting on my front wheel to come in ....
So, I can finally finish up the front disc brake conversion.

Here's a couple more pics -
With the 12x6 wheel, mounted.

Oh, believe me .... it's takes a bit of time and most all, money, :|
I've bought a bunch of parts that didn't fit so, make sure you study up. :)
Been a great learning experience, though

Good Luck on your build !!

Finally hit the +45mph mark after doing some tuning and trying out different intakes. I know I'm limited, because I'm still running a stock exhaust - but was able to hit 49.5 on the same road I've been tuning on for the past couple of months.
Bounced the rev-limiter a few time, too - So, I guess it's time for a CDI. :)

I also know, this mile stone is old news for some ....
But it's pretty exciting for ME !!
(My Thread :P)
