 Post subject: 09speed3s stanced met build 5/11 some pics
PostPosted: Tue Nov 22, 2011 9:24 pm 
Im typing this on my phone While making believe im watching tv wih my wife so bare with me ill fix it later....So I have been getting bored of my ruckus and really dont know what else to purchase for it haha. But anyways i was looking at getting another scooter to mess around with and I was bored one day and was looking through the met builds and seen evil city's met and thought wow that looks clean then I seen stroke_d (sp?) met and was hooked. I wanted to stick with the stock motor and be able to do 45 and just slam the shit out of it. I started searching for either an all white met or black/gray met around 2 months ago and finally found a 2009 black/Grey with only 250 miles on it so I went and picked it up around 2 weeks ago.

Image

Here it is in its beautiful stock form

Image

Weird thing is I checked my title for my ruckus and I registered the ruckus and met on the same month and day very weird.....

So I have a collection of parts at my parents house in there garage and I just so happen to have a ruckus swingarm!
Image

Her first night in the garage were she thinks she is safe but she is gonna get raped in the am.

Image

So in the am I took the mirrors and turn signals off and installed an extra crg mirror I never used. I also smoked the front reflectors since they seemed impossible to come off just like those damn little clips.

Image

That day I ordered a bunch of diff shit a 120/90/10 sl26 tire,BAttlescooter variator and some jets for it and I guess it's rare for the variator to be in stock. I also ordered one of those radiantz led tailights that evil told me about but I ordered it in smoked since I wanted to kind of go with a murdered out look.

So last week I installed the variator and some blue clutch springs and with a super ninja turkey I hit the highbeam indicator but without a tuck prb around 44ish.

So fast forward to last Saturday and I went in my parents garage and had a stock 03 ruckus exhaust so I cut that 20 pound muffler off and went to the depot and purchased a Briggs and Stratton muffler for like $6.

On this Sunday I went to Polk county (pc) and strok_d and pesky helped me with the lowering of the front forks, installed the ruck swingArm,welded up the exhaust and made a rigid rear. All in all it took all day cause we were bsin half the time but it was fun.

And I have to add the $6 muffler sounds bad ass seriously I couldn't believe it. I just want to thank tad and pesky for the help I'm officially a part of the of crew. :banger:


So yesterday I installed the led tailight,dremeled the stock tailight bracket down smooth, took the plastics off and painted the motor finished at around 2am and had to wake up at 5:15 for work....


So today the met needed some detailing love so I whipped out the clay bar and the best smelling wax. I use this wax on my mazdaspeed 3 and it enchances the mica darkness.
Image

So here's some pics of how it looks now. Still got to do a couple of things. Right now the rims are off and I'm painting them satin black.

Thanks for all the great info on this site.

Thanks fellas, It was from ur threads I got the itch to get a met. And to the question how does it ride. It rides smooth as butter. The front is honestly so much better than stock cause even tho we chopped and modified the forks we installed the springs jay Otto sells. And as far as rigid in the back if u live in an area that has nothing but potholes and u want to have kids one day don't do it but for a average road to semi bad It rides just as good as my ruckus. Rem I have an atr shock in the back and that bitch is stiff it might as well be rigid

Woooooooooooo!!!! Met love! :banana_det_down:

I'm glad you like it man and for the guy who asked about the ride, I only rode this one down the street and back but with the Met seat you dont really notice much difference in ride than a ruckus with a stiff shock (like ATR as mentioned) and the front forks feel amazing, I think the Otto springs have a stiffness that are just right, it's not so much that it makes the front end bounce everywhere but theyre not too soft like the stockers to get the "slap" over hard bumps

I personally love the way this Met turned out, I feel like we managed to one up my setup in every category

Ya I was thinking about doing a write-up on the next set I do.. Its just a little difficult because everyone prefers different heights and it's a thing were you cut multiple times to get it just right

I think we cut Johns 3 times? He kept wanting lower :hihi: but it was worth the work
