 Post subject: Stingray's 1st Ruck - 11 & New build pg 3
PostPosted: Wed May 25, 2011 5:49 pm 
11-7-12, new build page 3

New to the board, safe to say I have the feva like others. Funny how I only have 3.5 miles on my Ruck and I'm already hacking it up? Is this normal?

Anyhow... Just done a few mods so far, Drew's R6 Kit, Yoshi Pipe/Alum Seat frame, Kijima TS are just some of them. Got ideas off this forum to relocate the horn inside the box. The posts don't lie, I hope I never have to remove the front box again after the spedo relocate and turn signals...

So far looking good, thought I'd share my lil adventure... :banger:

Future upgrades - K&N Filter - Polini Variator - & some other stuffs

Stingray

Yoshi - sounds pretty good - need to rejet it still

Just a short update, got a shipment in yesterday. JDM Handlebar kit and Drow's mirrors. I'm very impressed with these mirrors from Drow - very good quality for price. Install was pretty simple, had to grind down the factory handlebar locking protrusion in the controls, after that it went on pretty easily.

Now just waiting on a footrest and some more goodies...

Yeah I noticed issues with this seat frame after i finally mounted the rear light kit. After I installed the R6 Light kit and lowered the seat down on the Yoshi seat frame, it was definately a tight fit "it did touch the frame barely on the passenger side" and it was slightly tilted upwards on the driv side. I was able to fix this by shimmin it with 2 washers on the driv side. By shimming it, in my situation, it leveled the light out. I could see the touch as being a stress problem on the light, if I were a heavy rider 200+ pds. The light does touch the seat frame, just barely, so I'm not worried about cracking at the moment, but then again that means no one rides it that is 200+ pds for now :) I think you could make some small cuts in the seat plastic or shim the front screws only, on the mount plate, to get some extra clearance if necessary.

I messed with the rear lic plate mount today and borrowed my idea from the MotoIQ ruckus. Made my own license plate mounting bracket out of 1/16 inch thick - alum angle iron. Went with the verticle look, hope I don't get pulled over by FL po-po's for this? Not sure if legal or not? Guess if i do i'll have to fab up another one horizontal.

Next week, going to try and find someone with a water jet cutting machine so I can have a custom Alum radiator cover made.

Thanks for the comments btw :D

we were talking about this on facebook the other day, if you want to keep it vertical you have to have an epass affixed onto your ruckus.

Some updated photos, going BLK JDM extension next, then finishing off K&N set up, 62-1513, 62-1320, & RU-3490. My next project will be another Ruck w/GY6 set up - will let the GF use the GET :)

Held off on the rejet. I have an 80,82, & 88 to play with but decided to do it when I ended up installing the extension kit. Gonna start off with the lower jet and work my way up, as I install the K&N filter set up. I'll update progress & pics once I start.

Put the extension on last weekend. Wanted to ride it so bad - still haven't re-jet yet, will prob do this weekend. All I can say about the PSWD JDM extension is "you get what you pay for" - had to modify it a few times to get it to fit/work - but no need to bash since its pretty clean.

Working on breaking it down

I'll update again when I re-jet, although the GET can do low 50s right now without a re-jet.
