Good call on my daughter's bike. I gotta see if they can fit 8)

on a crappy side note. I lost two passwordjdm cup washers and bolts on my cvt cover when I was adjusting my roller weights. Must be somewhere along the road. It happened last night and I drove around today but no luck. I'm beyond bummed, I know its silly but still bummed... My wife has put the kybosh down on my ruckus spending, just before I could pickup up a stretch or sidestand, but now I'm losing parts I thought I was done with. Just part of the game I guess :headbashing:

I had a noob moment today. I was cleaning up the garage and kinda sorting all the oem parts I have taken off the ruck. Looking at the stock exhaust I noticed a small silver ring stuck to the end... I left the gasket off when I switched exhausts. Any idea what kind of problem that might of caused? I'm heading off to work later on and check to see I need to rejet, now that I threw the gasket back on. Man I feel dumb :meh:

Stretched! My Ruckus is the first time I have ever tried bolting on mods and it is a fun way to tinker. Its becoming a part time job. So this stretch wasn't as straight forward as I had hoped. Everything I read said it should be done in about 3 hours. Well 6 hours later I can say I am happy its done. The mount wouldn't fit so I ended up grinding down the nuts under a crossbar (the one that holds down the stock plastic under the seat.) Speaking of the plastic I had to cut a hole in it so that the shock mount extension would fit. The shock mount extension mounting hole at the end was too small for the bolt supplied so I had to enlarge that so I could mount the shock to it. After my first test run I noticed I pancaked my license plate holder, had to figure out a way to not squish that everytime I hit a bump. I still may need to figure out a better way to mount the plate but for now it will work. Nothing was quite plug and play but it was a fun way to spend the weekend. Enough talk here are a few pics.

That's how it all starts :) Enjoy. Looking sharp.

Get yourself a nice vertical plate mount. Lots to choose from. A couple examples,

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I really like the vertical mounts, I may try to fab one from my current set-up.

Updates coming soon. I have a JC20, Yoshimura, and a pair of pink clutch springs on their way. The carb will be here tomorrow, pinks the day after and NEXT WEEK for the exhaust... Kinda got boned on the shipping, it was free but I choose USPS Priority Mail and the exhaust was sent FedEx which is like 3 days slower, I guess shouldnt complain since its free. I don't think I will put on the JC20 until I get the yosh, so I only will have to worry about retting afterwards. But who knows its a gorgeous week up here and I may have to play around this weekend now that finals are over. Either way updates are coming with hopefully some speed updates.

Man I wanted to, it looked like a good time, but I had family in town visiting. I'm looking at the SBC Duvall ride in Sept. I got a buddy at work who rides as well that I may talk into joining.

We have a big event down here in PDX called 'Spring Scoot'. You should try and come down for that. That's a good event too. Obviously it's a ways off, but keep a look out on the Portland thread.

Today I got my PC20 in the mail and the pinks. After mocking up the PC20 I saw that the manifold didn't line up exact with the carb so after some dremeling I think its in a better place. I'm still waiting on my new pipe before I install but I got the pinks on today. Boy that was a process until I realized I didn't need to take the entire clutch apart.

Hey Version2.0 when you guys were up here for F2F was anyone running a PC20? If so have a suggested starting SJ, MJ, and Pilot to work from? Thanks!

No, all our guys seem to be using the Polini if they are using aftermarket. Sorry.

Last Friday I got the PC20 installed and with the BR Quick Exhaust I hit 51 on my gps without turning. Blew me away! I couldn't GET past how the new carb just keeps pulling. I figured it must get better when the yosh gets here and installed. Now, the Yoshimura is on and doesn't run as smooth as the BR but I know I just need to rejet since the yosh is pushing more. The sound is awesome though. Deep and mean! No wonder everyone and their dog is running a yosh pipe. I love all the "this is not street legal" warnings all over the packaging. I don't think its any louder than the BR. I'm going to check the dB levels to see just how loud a stock pipe, the BR, and the Yoshimura are. Here is some ruck porn to see where I am at after installs.
