Its been a bit quiet after the rains came but I do have a few new updates for ya'll. I picked up a Jst4shw headlight bracket, rPro turn signals, Mnnthbx Turtlehead and a pair of their fork upgrade springs, Mojo Kickstand, and a CVT cover and a "dingleberry from TRS. And now on to the Ruck Porn, I hope you enjoy! :banger:

The turtlehead is soo clean and Mnnthbx is by far the quickest shipping I have seen, I went off brand on the dingleberry since I wanted it in gloss and sadly Mnnthbx only offers it in matte and raw. My only real complaint is that the Turtlehead didn't have the bullet connectors so I had to do more wiring than I wanted.
Image

Speaking of wiring, the Rucksters rPro turns wires were too short for the right side so I had to splice in an extension. And there is still some rubbing I need to clean up coming from the headlights when I turn right.

Here is a side by side of the Buzzetti and Mojos. At this point I knew this was gonna lean.

Suggest taking the filter off the carb.

PC20 is overkill and horrible with fluctuating temps. I would of advised you to stay away from PC20 until you got headwork done.

Yeah I have noticed how temps can really wreck my preformance. When it's nice it's nice but other than that its can be hit and miss. :D

Just ordered in NCY slammed front kit, and some 10 in rims. Which leaves the Mnnthbx springs never used. Oh well, thats what I get for buying them on impulse. Also, anyone have a suggested tire I should be looking at and a good place to buy from? As well as any advice on the kit install itself? I read that people suggest scrapping the copper washers for the banjo bolts and use the Harley sealing washers. Anything else I should know? Thanks!

Pirelli SL26 tires, in my opinion, are the best. I run mine overinflated at 42psi and have never had an issue. Plus with the lower rolling resistance, you gain a mile an hour or 2! I had Cycle Gear order them and picked them up at the store, but they are easy to find online. Be careful- they come in black wall or with white letters- choose whatever you like.

The Harley washers work much better.

Thanks for the advice, yeah I have read a lot about the SL26s and was leaning that way. Just ordered in 100/90-10 upfront and 120/90-10 for the rear. Next Wednesday everything comes in. Damn I blame the sunshine today for getting that ol' "itch" to play with my ruck

Well I got my wheels, tires and brake kit in and after spending the day getting the tires mounted and the kit together I noticed I was missing the axel spacer... The kit pictured on all the advertisements do not show the spacer but the instructions say to use it. I called scooterworks and they recommended a spacer which I ordered. So now I get to wait a bit more. But in the mean time I have a weapon R coolant on its way, new pegs since those jdm pegs are still trying to kill, me and I picked up a takegawa velocity stack from eloke.

Image

Le Sigh! MIA spacer...
Image

Random question I bled the disc system but I am wondering when should the handle stop on the pull? Currently it goes hard about halfway. Should it be sooner? Thanks guys

Awesome sir.. I would love a better pic of them installed with that kickstand. the only one i have so far with a kickstand is the FLP one that goes inside the frame. Maybe a small how to.. I know its not rocket science but some might need it in the future..

Super glad you like them!!!!

You can email me if you wish the picture.. zenkustumz@gmail.com

Playing with jets today after getting the velocity stack. Nothing too exciting and the weather is too cold to get out much. But as it was I was bogging down and my throttle-fu isn't up to task I need to open up the carb. Moved the small jet up a size, as she sits now.

Rough and dirty overview of my weekend.
I installed my new haul as well as clean up all the cables around them stem. The bb felt too tight and on right turns the box was creaking so some cable management was in order.

Image

Also changed the oil, coolant, new plug and the ngk cable since I was there.

Image

Funny thing I got covered in mud, man missing the front fender is a bigger deal than I expected (I need to figure this one out being in Seattle). Also the just4show headlight bracket points my lights like 40ft above the road so that adjustment happened (flipped the lights inside the brace and installed it upsidedown). I also seem to have a real small coolant leak from the chimera hoses. I found a drop on the garage floor the last few days. I kept tinkering with them but it seems like one hose is like 1cm too short. Stupid problem that is on the backburner for now while I think my disc is still too squishy and with the new contra I never got over 40mph or 8800rpm.

I changed my 4.5 sliders over to the 6.9 polini rollers that came with the variator to help brake in the contra. I didn't put in the cup as it didn't fit all that great. Also I moved the needle on the carb to the lowest position to richen up a bit (been meaning to do for a bit now).

Despite the mud, lights pointing towards the sky, and 40degree weather damn it felt good to get out. I met up with a buddy who is pretty much stock and Its crazy to compare how much has been done over the year. More to come I am sure.

Began my vapor install today and snapped the bar clamp... Just trying to get it over the bar and crack. I called TT and was offered a full hardware kit for 20 bones. Beyond painful, but since I also needed the larger magnetic rotor bolt for the speedo I think project is gonna cost me more than I expected. Now I'm thinking about new bars like the JSB or maybe the rPro Monster. God I'm gonna get some wife aggro sooner or later

These rPro grips reminded me of little lightsabers and had to GET some.

I love my rpro monster bars! BUT if I were to do it again I MIGHT choose the bars that let you mount the vapor inside the center of the bars.....not unhappy at all, but just sayin..
