Chopped forks in and front tires mounted.
Image

Checkers were nice, but a little too loud for my taste. So we went simple :cylon
Image

Battle scooter radiator cover, FMF headers, and custom megaphone muffler. Can't wait to hear what it sounds like! :banger:
Image

Pink clutch springs, Polini variator, and jet kit from Battle Scooter

Some new jewelry for the rear signals

Jazzin up the turn signals a bit. Relocated the front turns to the front fenders.
Image

Tinkering with the hardtail. Wanted to make sure engine is perpendicular to the floor.
Image

Really dig her rear end. Had to shave down the left bushing due to the rear being off centered.

Found a way to mount my TTO tach and fill in the hole left behind after removing the stock mirror.
Image

Semi reassemble for tuning. Easy access to the carb this way.

After getting it prep for tuning I ran into the issue of her having difficulties holding an idle. Also there was a fairly loud clicking noise coming from the engine. I believe it's a inner valve spring issue. Also took a quick look at the rocker arms for the intake and exhaust valve. Feels to be no clearance for the intake valve. Hopefully that is what is causing my idling issue. Wish me luck!

I'm about to pick up a 2005 ruck engine from another member tomorrow. Look like it isn't a simple fix as I thought it was. Never ending battle I tell ya. :headbashing:

Aware there's issue with the lack in PVC system on these earlier motors. I'm gonna attempt to retro fit one from parts I pick up individually. Wish me luck

Here's the 2005 Ruckus motor great condition with 800 miles I picked up for a great deal. Gonna add a PCV valve to avoid the vent problem. Hopefully in by this weekend

After todays work. Sit's a little high. Gotta do some more shaving off the frame, so the mount sits lower. Here's a before and after for some perspective.
