 Post subject: SD Ruck GET to........ GY6 Fatty (Complete pic pg 6)
PostPosted: Sat Jan 21, 2012 12:33 am 
So I've been here a little while, thought i'd share my Ruckus so far.

Here it is the day I bought it back in July 2011. My daughter jumped right on it.
Image
Image

One of the first things I did was move the blinkers down. Had to bend the bracket out to GET em straight. New stock tires on the way.
Image

Took the plastics off and got an ATR gas tank cover and sprayed it with bed liner for grip. Battlescooter intake kit installed with snorkel along with DR.D exhaust. Password JDM Lower seat frame. Dynatec 9500 CDI.
Image

Cult BMX front load stem in anodized rasta, Coalation Joe Riley Bars, Cult Vans grips (best grips ever). THe grips are longer than stock, so I got another throttle tube to cut the end off to extend the throttle tube. Wrapped the left side of the bars in electrical tape to even out the grips due to the tube. Moved the speedometer to the battery box. New Motorec full coil over, sooo much better than stock.
Image
Image

Did Superfaded 2011, I had so much fun meeting everyone. Put down 120 miles that day!
Image
Image

Th next day my motor wouldnt start. I guess I killed it. Picked up another for $50, threw it in a day and I was back in business.

Image
Image

Dr Puller sliders. Got a few sets. Polini Variator, Kitaco belt , shaved face.JC lightened fly wheel. 2008 ECU
Image
Image
Image

Front and rear fender removal. Bowls Posh CDI, PWJDM kick stand and pegs. Cigarette lighter outlet, and HYS
Image
Image

MPAB brace and NCY pegs. Had to make something to keep the pegs from sagging, so I used some carbon fiber and heated it to bend it slightly.
Image
Image
Image

1/31/2012 Update: New parts!


Got a Dorby variator for a deal so I switched out the Polini.
Image

I kept the mix of 5g and 5.5g sliders, and my first test run (slight downhill) was awesome. :shock:
Image

but then I found out it eats sliders after a few miles. :pissed:
Image

So I decided to polish the ramps, took some time, but came out pretty good. I'm still messing with the roller/ slider combo, currently running 4.75g rollers with shaved drive face. Still can't get to 54mph again though. :headbashing: I hope I didn't mess it up :meh:
Image

More parts came in :D PC20 carb kit and Posh coil, installing this weekend. Also got blue clutch springs in the mail.
Image

That's it for now.
Future plans:
PWJDM coolant tank
tail light,
PC20 carb kit 120 rear tire
Met gearing


update 2/7/12


PC20 carb, blue clutch springs, Posh Coil installed! :banger: Now it's time to tune! After the rain :headbashing:

Image
Image
Image

Up next, integrated LED taillight, LED blinkers, and license plate relocation....
Stay tuned... :banascoot :monkeyscoot

Kids love Rucks! Had a 4 year old kick my muffler cover and break the end off while he walked by it with his mother.

what was the difference with the lightened flywheel
im doing one soon but with a spare so I can switch back if I dont like it
im mostly concerned with the engine braking if its really bad or not a big deal

Acceleration from a stop went up a hair, didn't really notice any difference on the engine brake. The difference I really noticed was hills; I was able to maintain my speed a lot better when transitioning from flat. I'm also able to slowly gain speed up hills, not much, but better than topping out near the bottom. I like it, I'd do it again.

I am happy with it, I should weigh it vs the OEM... maybe next time I pull it off. I wanna know how it'd work on the Zuma.

well I have great acceleration now, im hoping even better
I have timers built into my speedo so I can finally test my mods
maybe it will shave off another second or something who knows

is there alot involved with the ruckus, I guess the rad need to come off or will it swing over enough without draining it?

Radiator has to be drained, there is a tube from the back of the rad to the block. At first I thought I forgot to remove a bolt, but I just pulled on the rad and it popped off. There are o-rings on the ends of the tube you can replace if bad, I reused mine and have no leaking issues. I was done in about 20 min.

I was really surprised I hit 54, too bad when I got home it looked like powder in my swingarm from the sliders being shaved down. Thats when I decided to polish the ramps, but now I can only get to 50mph (slight downhill) on the same road.

Thanks! :highfive: That was the first sticker I put on, I still have some from a roll I got like 10 yrs ago. I'm still trying to find a stem for the ruck.

Thats rad! Back in high school I rode a dirt brothers trailer park frame, I regret selling it to this day.
