Hows it going guys, first post here, decided id show off my minty new Ruckus!

I picked it up last week and have been lurking here for about 2 weeks.

Right after I got it I ordered some PW:JDM black pegs, some dress up washers, and a sticker for the front fender.

Last night I badged the side RUCKUS logos as well. Heres pics!

I need to order a few more bolts to install the rest of the washers, and plan on getting the PW:JDM green 8mm set to get the seat frame matching the rest of the scooter.

I know the stache stickers are kind of played out in the Honda car scene, but I have a side business selling moustache wax so I figured it was appropriate.

Thanks for looking, hopefully more to come soon! :banger:

Possibly a variator, exhaust mostly for looks, and just generally keeping up on maintenance. :highfive:

Got my mirror I ordered today....damn thing was advertised as 8mm but was actually 10mm, plus was a magnified mirror so I couldnt see anything with it so im hoping to return it and find another 6" stem round mirror, or just go with the bar end cat eye. Biggest thing is I dont want to cut into my grip with the bar end.

I have a PW:JDM lowered seat frame, and hex radiator cover in the mail so hopefully by the end of the week I will have those delivered and I can install them. :banger:

Im trying to sell my AR-15 so hopfully that money will get me a variator, rollers, and other stuff to really get my build rolling!

Stuff coming in the mail:

PW:JDM Hex Radiator Cover
PW:JDM 6" Kickstand
PW:JDM Lowered Seat Frame


Waiting on info about an ebay auction and ill have a second mirror ordered, then just have to return the first one.

I dont know if I want to remove my floorboard as planned since its wet in the NW and the more water protection the better.

Im going to see how the lowered seat is and that will determine if I get new handlebars or not!

:banger:

PW:JDM Lowered seat frame!

Feels soooo much better. I really want a sat back rest now, and front pegs!

I figured out after installing that the helmet lock is removable so I need to go get a new allen head bolt and install it on the new seat frame later today.

More stuff coming in the mail the next few days as well, once it all gets here ill do a proper shoot.

Got my PWJDM side-stand installed, kinda seems shody though, the stand stem wobbles side to side, and the bottom flat of it sits on the ground at an angle. Is it possible I need to tighten the allen head bolt holding the stem to the main part of the stand?

Ive been using a shop rag to even it out and to keep the stand from getting trashed.

Update:

Got my round mirror, and my PWJDM hex radiator cover!

The mirror is wide angled so it has decent view of everything behind me.

Ive dubbed this ruckus "The gentleman" because with the stache sticker and headlights it makes me think of some old guy with huge glasses and a handlebar...not to mention the rear fender kinda looks like a tailcoat tail.

Im thinking about removing the HONDA sticker on the BBH and getting a white tophat sticker made up.


I did my first oil change, so for now im just going to ride as the next few things will be home fabbed rather than bought from PWJDM like everything else.

Once I get more miles a Polini variator and some lighter rollers will be on the top of my list.

Plans to do between now and summer:

-Find second headlight and taillight bracket to shave:
(Tailight will have a shaved reflector, headlight will have shaved front rack thing)

-New blinkers

-Front Pegs that will let me keep my floor plastic

-Clubman handlebars, upgrade throttle, grips, and get a legit bar end mirror for the left side

-Green PWJDM extension kit

-Whitewall Tires

-Custom tophat sticker to replace HONDA on front of BB, also replace stache sticker and clean the fender before installing new one so it actually sticks....

These are all tentative to change, but are somewhat guidelines to how my build may look.
