After being away for a while here are some updstes:
-i was I Dubai for a month and a half on training.
-when I got back I noticed the ruck was acting up and sputtering. I decided to change out the jets and clean the carb, only to find that the stock carb couldn't be taken apart...so I just ordered a new one.
- moved from Midland to Houston
-replaced the carb and she's up and running again, at least so far.

Looking forward to meeting up with the H-town crew sometime soon. :banger:

Thanks!

Feels good to be back. Hopefully I'll get back in to the ride game soon too. I've missed riding. :monkeyscoot

I need to get some rollers to get moar top end. And eventually I'll change out the variator, clutch and spring. But baby steps.

Also need to rejet. Keep sputtering as I slow down.

I got one and when it’s tuned I’ll backfire sometimes after being WOT and I let off the gas No sputter tho. Even when it’s tuned right.

I'm stalling after stopping too though. So there's definitely some carb tunage in my future.

I don't always break down, but when I do it's on the way to the bank.

Damn who am I kidding, I break down all the time. I have a serious love,hate relationship with my ruck. :wasted:

Image

I made it to the bank but I think it's a charging issue, the starter was barely cranking when I tried restarting it.

It's definitely something after the build because it keeps happening randomly, a bad ground or something. It also doesn't help that she's not been for driven in a while.

Back to the drawing board :meh:
