    ~250-300 beans. Very easy to do, as a scooter motor/tranny/rear wheel is essentially one piece. You can't stretch the swingarm like bikes do, so you space the motor back. The kit I bought needs to be welded together, which is why I bought it. Ran $125 with the extended shock arm. Allows for a really wide wheel and will sit perfectly center (or completely off if you mess up, lol).

    Re: My Ruckus Build

    Update
    Got some goodies in the mail yesterday:



    Full upgraded front end for the Ruck. New NCY shocks, NCY 2-piston disc brake conversion, NCY floating disc wave rotor (will be sold and replaced with a different, nicer rotor), SS line, NCY master cylinder, black hardware for new lever and MC, and new 10" silver front wheel. Selling that front wheel for a 12"x3 front 5-spoker. Love it?

    That's gonna look sick as fuck! What rotor will you be replacing the NCY one with? I like the look of the wavey one.

    They're really awesome, especially if you love to mod. Obviously we all do, thats why this forum is a forum haha. Best thing i've ever bought. Love it to death!

    Too bad you gave that bad boy up, classics are dope!

    Probably a Poon floating wave rotor, gotta upgrade to that for the new wheel and hub adapter to mate with the new front end anyway. Ill try to grab a pic, its still gonna be a wave rotor tho, i love wave rotors!

    Well, if you are going to be caught riding a scooter then the ruckus is definitely the coolest one out. I love the way they mod them all crazy but I have four bikes and the smallest is 1000cc. It must feel strange riding so low to the ground. I really would like to ride a tricked out one sometime. So many wheels, so little time...

    question is...when are you going to boost it? If I didn't have so many projects I would buy one. I asked my wife if she would ride one and I guess no was the answer. Women, I asked her five times to go out to the garage and get an adjustable wrench and Philips screwdriver and it was like talking a foreign language. I even gave her the nut to go match to the wrench and she brought me five wrenches and none of them fit then the last time one big wrench. Swear she was a blonde. lol Moral of story is, never send a woman to do a man's job.
