I normally wouldnt have wasted the server space with my ride...after all I dont even have pegs. BUT you kinda gotta jump through the hoops if you want privileges around here. :meh:

Regardless, I take pride in my ride...it may look stock, but I do 50mph+ and I have fun gettin there! :banger:

I took this pic last October, just after purchase.
Image

This is my only mod :banger:

Ive currently got a lil over 4k on the odometer...and loving every mile of it!

Its actually quite easy...as you can see its inline with the speedo.
Also when youre tucked its right under your nose.
It only sucks at night, no backlight...but I dont really need it at night either.

Thanks!
Im not a big fan of red, I was lookin for a new Ruck and found this 09 on the showroom floor for $1999...and no other choices, so the decision was easy! lol ...and(IMO) its better than black!(theres just too many of them)

5000 mile update :kamiscoot

I rolled 5k on Thanksgiving day...13 months after purchase. :mrgreen:
Image

So I decided to celebrate 5k by doing some maintenance and upkeep...
...pulled the valve cover and re-shimmed the valves.(easy)
Image
...I was impressed with how clean it was inside. :meh:

Previously I had issues with a MRP Scooter Ninja variator, I got a replacement, and over a month and a half later, upon inspection...this one is a keeper, showing virtually NO wear and the rollers are perfectly round. *sigh of relief*
Image

Since day one, my front wheel/tire has had a bad vibration that I was able to quasi balance with a couple of magnets...but my tires are bout worn, Ive got maybe 10% tread life left...
...so I figured 5k was a special enough occasion to buy new tires(Kenda K413), and they go on tonight!
...along with some Dyna-Beads to avoid anymore balance issues.
Image

More subtle mods to come :wink:
Big thanks to MopedMotion for the excellent (Black Friday)deal on tires! :banger:

New tires installed :banger: :banascoot

Image

Image

I had removed the front fender a couple months back and hid the front frame...
...this is my second attempt at cutting the rear fender, the first time was too frown-y.
Glad to finally take pics of these, even happier to have a reason such as new tires to take pics :mrgreen:

[edit]BTW, props go to my Ruckus riding buddies here in Titusville: Tom Tom and Willie T McRibbs for installing my tires for me last night...cause Ive got bitch hands :headbashing:

Its a Koso Mini Tach, not to be confused with Tiny Tach, different product, similar price point...except I can change the battery in mine, and the shape is a lil more friendly to mount in different locations.
I like it alot, it does as expected and I really like the max RPM feature.
Down sides are: its not backlit, so at night its almost useless...but its hardly an issue. And because its digital, the rpms kinda bounce around in 10 rpm increments.
For example, at idle youll see anywhere from 1990-2040 rpm fluctuations. :meh: If it were analog youd see 2000rpm.
Plus: when I hit the revlimiter Im able to see its at 8890rpm...and adjust my throttle to keep it just under to avoid the stumble.

Its very usable, the price point is right and its easy to install.

You mean like what setting? I believe it was 1c2p? or something like that...it was actually already set up for that though. And the instructions are clear, no babblefish.
[edit]I had found a PDF at another site with the instructions before purchasing...maybe it was RonAnyers :meh:
