    Stretched and Swapped Ruckus - Custom Fabbed

    Super late update (12/5/15)
    Ruck has been done for quite some time now. I unveiled the scoot at the Boosted Life 2013 event in the summer, albeit unfinished. I worked on the bike more and went to Honda Day in Englishtown, NY with both my Si and Ruckus. Both won 1st place, which was a humbling feeling - especially since both were ~90% finished! Threw temp black paint on the bike, which was not the color I was planning on using. Did the trick though. On to the pics:





    From Boosted Life event:

    Well, I've been building this Ruckus for about two months now. She should be done in 4 weeks from now. I work on her once a week with @RND RACING. It's a great process, however very time consuming. Hard work pays off, and I'm sure that this will.

    Current teasers (6/13/13):

    UPDATE: 5/5/13

    So, obviously the jump from a modded 1000cc R1 to a 50cc Ruckus is as big of a jump as it sounds. But the Ruckus is so damn fun to ride that the tremendous power sacrifice is worth it. It's the modding and riding experience that gets you. With that said, I found a need for more power. Topping out at 42mph prevents me from going on highways and parkways, which is a pain because you can't cruise with anyone but a 50cc Ruckus. So I figured boost is the "dark side" of the k-series world. And a motor swap is the "dark side" of the Ruckus world. So...

    I'm doing a GY6 150cc motor swap to replace the 50cc. I'll make sure to keep you all updated throughout this process, my goal is to be finished by the end of June!


    Parts I have:
    10x8 new rear wheel (need to sell)
    10x3 new front NCY wheel (need to sell)
    Full NCY front end kit
    Mini headlight swap
    Single low mirror
    LEGO GET Mount unassembled (need to sell)
    GY6 Short Axle

    Parts on the way:
    GY6 Longcase (Rucksters)
    12x8 3+5 4/110 DWT Rear Wheel
    MAX GY6 Hub; pressed out studs and rethreaded for 4/110 wheel
    Mojo Weld-on GY6 Mount
    Front Tire: Kenda K433 100/60/12
    Rear Tire: Avon Viper 140/70/12
    Password:JDM Drag Frame Brace (Chin Bone)

    Parts I need:
    Wiring harness (http://www.composimo.com/Makoa-Scooters ... _p_13.html)
    11-pole stator (with harness)
    Exhaust (Ti Akra)
    Carburator (not sure which)
    Intake (not sure which)
    Rear Drum Brake (NCY??)
    Flywheel/clutch
    Variator/springs etc
    Mikuni Fuel Pump
    This list will grow

    This is my 2012 Honda Ruckus NPS50. Purchased brand new from the dealership.



    It's fun to drive, gets 120+mpg, and tops out at 42mph - for now. I plan on doing some minor mods, nothing crazy like a motor swap. Mainly using this to keep miles off my Si.

    Mod List
    1. GY6 Radiator Scoop Not Installed
    2. Smoked LED R6 Taillight with Integrated Turn Signals Not Installed
    3. Custom 125cc Pocket Bike Exhaust Removed for Engine Break-in
    4. R1 Frame Slider Foot Pegs (FSFP)

    R1 FSFP Sleeper Style


    Exhaust First time around


    Venom variator, loving it so far. I also drilled 4 holes in my CVT cover, because at 120 miles I had more dust than I wanted to have. Should help keep temperature down a bit, and keep some dust out.



    I painted and installed my GY6 scoop, slightly melted it when I decided to put it in the toaster on low heat. Oh well, doesn't look bad.

    More to come soon!

    Just bought a black GY6 air scoop last night. Fits onto my stock GET motor, basically helps air get to the radiator on the side of the motor to assist in cooling. Function > Form. Although it's gonna look awesome, lol.



    And I also bought a smoked Yamaha R6 LED taillight with integrated turn signals. Can't wait to wire that up!

    It's awesome, literally can't explain it. I just wish someone I knew local had one so we could ride together.

    Just welded up and mostly finished my custom 125cc pocket bike exhaust for the Ruck, here's a little teaser picture until it's finished and on.

    You'll love it. I wanna turbo it, but the stock GET engine wouldn't create 1psi of boost if it had to.

    I'm 5'9 and currently 170. Lots of 200+ guys get em, but you gotta get a new variator if you wanna get some good top speed and acceleration. I love this thing!

    Just installed my Venom variator last night with 6g rollers, loving it so far. Dropped down do 5.5g rollers this morning and it won't go faster than 42mph. I'll keep tinkering and see what happens. I also drilled 4 holes in my CVT cover, because at 120 miles I had more dust than I wanted to have. Should help keep temperature down a bit, and keep some dust out.
