Hey TR just joined a few weeks ago as I picked up my first ruckus. Wanted used since I was going to mod it to hell!

Found a 2013 with less than 2k miles on it and grabbed it. Plus it had some mods to start!

Starting point:

Welded stretch kit
Lowered seat frame
Chopped turn signal ears front and rear
Tucked stock tail lamp
12" front wheel from Vento Scooter
Vento front forks
Vento stock Disc Brake front
12x7 ITP steel wheel with hub in rear
Polini variator with rollers
Pod filters
K&N intake
Briggs Exhaust
NCY Cdi
Jetted

So first round of mods came in and I switched out the rollers for Dr. Pulley 5.5g sliders and added some PWJDM pegs.

I also realized the front forks were mounted backwards so I flipped them around and dipped the ugly mustard yellow front wheel Anthracite metallic.

Been working on things on the get!

So far installed a new stem, bars and Password stem shim kit.

Extended all wires and picked up a front frame cover to do a wire tuck!

Also scored a yoshi TRC with brand new chimera header(need to have a hanger made)

so some updates!

Painted the front frame gloss black, installed a frame cover from TR member shiba99! and painted the rear frame, seat frame, battery box, tank cover(color is a surprise!)

I chopped the springs a few coils in the front (running gy6 front end) to bring it down somewhat and look more level.

Since I am tucking the cables I need to order a new throttle and rear brake so I can hide them!

Just ordered a new battery from batterystuff(search on TR rocks!) and found a killer deal local on a battery tender junior so will go pick that up too!

Mine came with the red seat but I am trading a local for his black one as it will tie in my new color scheme better! I promise pics to come from my camera!!

look me up on IG @boostedfury since some teasers have been thrown there :)

Good progress. Did you paint the front frame with it attached or did you take everything off?

i separated the frame from back half and then primed it and painted it(just bagged and taped up the battery tray and ecu)! Its not perfect but will work until i tear down again for black powdercoat!

small update! Finally made time to swap seats with my buddy! He's building a red and black themed ruck and wanted my red seat, and I wanted a black for a cleaner look!

Next need to decide on what tail light, probably a cheapie R6 since I need a tonnnn of other parts still.
