 Post subject: "Fairly 48" GY6 Ruck (New pics pg. 6)!
PostPosted: Sun Dec 04, 2011 3:21 pm 
Hi i all its time for my winter project! Getting another ruck and doing a GY6 swap :twisted: ! I bought my donor scoot in the summer for 400 bucks. Found it on craigslist used from a private owner. 3,000 miles and in great shape! Had some bodywork damage from when it was dropped but the motor was in great shape with no leaks and ran like a champ. 60mph i could cruise at no problem and on flat ground lol. But yea the pick up and power of the gy6 is awsome. I still love my GET's but there are some awsome backroads around where i live so i want a gy6 so i can cruise them no problem and have some fun at same time (speed limits on them of 45 to 55mph. My get would be way up in rev rnage the whole time not good for realibilty lol.

So.............Darkside time :DomoRuckRuck

On to the pics. Heres the donor all tuned up abd cleaned up after i got her. she was a little neglected when i got her to say the least.......
Image
Image
Image
Now i had already done some mods. Removed the cvt cover mainly. Love the exposed belt drive look.
Also made a license plate bracket since i cut off the goofy rear license plate mount that is stock on the gy6. These two mods will be staying to be used on my ruck.
Image

Since i bought the donor i have stockpiled quite a bit of parts for my build as i was finising up my first build of my GET powered stretched ruck!

Image
More on these parts later as they are installed!
Image
A cool reflector and a couple cool bolt tops from the gy6 i will incorporate into my build.

Image
Went ahead and removed the hideous stock air intake and airbox assembly.
Tried to make a intake like i did on my ruck but the piping is to small for the gy6 carb and gy6 uni. so i will be mounting the uni directly on the carb. More on that later tho.
Image
Image

So the official teardown begun. not bad at all and was a lot of fun actually! :banger:

Image
After first couple hours we had a complete stripped rear frame! Engine ready to be removed.....almost. Waiting till i disconnected controls in the front. Kept the controls, harness, and cables from the stocker just in case. everything else went ot the dumpster.
Image
Battery removed. Gonna keep it. Still in good shape.
Image
keep fuel tank for the hoses and sending unit just in case. Maybe use the tank on some other project down the road. Never know.
Image
Removed exhaust. After i get some new cut off wheels ill update this thread with my open header design im doing.
Image
Started rippin out the front after i finished the middle section.
I took every nut, blot, screw, tab off this thing during teardown! Used the helmet bucket to hold all the hardware and straps of steel that i took off. Never know when this stuff could come in handy.
Image

Image
This was stock headlight assembly off gy6. keeping em. I like th projector look may integrate them into stock ruck headlights on a later build.
Image
Getting there
Image
Image
motor and shocks awaiting a fresh ruck frame.
Image
Image
Image
two other parts off the gy6 i kinda liked may use them at some point.

Image
keep mileage for my records
Image
Cdi on crack :lol:

Image
harness pic for my records.
Image
Image
NOTHING left! :banger:
Image
Image

Image
garbadge.......
Image
more garbadge
and keeping this:
Image

So thers the first part of my build. And some future parts for my swap.
Mojo weld on mount is on the way in so look for updates soon!

Thanks for looking :highfive:

So your prolly wondering why the name. Well i was doing some google image searching and found a very beautiful Harley Davidson new Sportster. Its from there dark cutom garage and its the Forty-Eight. Harley designed it very sporty and cafe style so im going for a similar approach with my ruck. I took the forty-eight name but used the letters instead of the writing. I will be incorporating the number 48 into a special part im going to make for my ruck. A lot more on this "Part" later....................

Heres the sportster 48
Image
Image
Then i found this beautiful 2011 ruck. It has a "Fairly" orange BB. which is the honda factory color name for it.
So i to will have a faily orange bb and the rest of the ruck will be flat black with a couple shiny bits mimicking the Harley.
I love the look of the harley.
My parents offered to help me with payments on a new Harley Davidson Sportster Iron 883 also from harleys dark horse custom garage. Because im graduating college in the spring! :banger: Here is the "Iron" 883
Image
Has a smaller eninge. a 883 insted of 1200 thats in the forty-eight but it be my first big bike. So i dont know if i want it or more rucks. I could also get two rucks instead of the harley. I hate decisions like this :headbashing: :lol:

But basically harley 48 color scheme and cafe racer touches throughout the build :banger:

So theres the background on my build! the building up will start after christmas!!! more parts coming for the holidays :banger:

your are really trying to decide between a harley and 2 rucks? My dad is thinking about getting a 48. Lets say if you choose the harley and change your mind you could always sell it and get 3 rucks

lol that is ture. but yea i like the ruck cuz i dont have to pay tags or insurance on it. and its better on gas than the harley. the harley would just be a lot more expensive in the long run than the rucks lol.

lol well i didnt get a ruck over a harley yet. i was already going to do this project but im saying for my graduation in the spring i could get harley. but i could also get a couple rucks and do lots of mods so idk lol. a harley is just like everyone else a ruck is different lol.

and this build im not doing to look like the harley. Just using the fat tire look of the 48 and its color scheme. its going to be colored like a harley but look more like a cafe bike. I want it to look like it could be a lot of fun and go back to my days with my old ruck of jumping speedbumps and other road irregularities as im just cruising around. with the gy6 motor it will have a little more "go go" and with some tasteful cafe mods i think it will look like a "fun" ride! thats what im going for with this build.
