Yesterday was a very busy day (and today was the final touches). I kinda went a bit overboard on the ruckus.

- mojo 10" extension
- Douglas 12x8 with 140/70/12 viper strike
- plastidipped the frame black, rear frame, battery box etc white
- new fuel lines, rear brake cable, throttle cable
- rrgs piggyback rear shock (copy)
- ruck shop intake w/ uni filter
- re jetted and shimmed the carb
- MNNTHBX gp exhaust
- MNNTHBX lightweight pegs
- MNNTHBX rear sets
- MNNTHBX sigg coolant tank
- MNNTHBX dorf seat frame
- MNNTHBX intake bracket
- MNNTHBX kickstand (modified)
- r6 led rear light w/ sequential turn
- custom stainless rear fender
- relocated trail tech vapor

I'd post pics but I'm on my iPhone... But this beast is loud as fuck. Gained about 10km/h but haven't messed with the roller weights yet. I notice it idles really low (almost stalling) when it starts up from cold. I assume it's running too rich. But once it warms up its fine. If I adjust the idle screw at the carb, it idles fine (cold) but once warned up it shoots up to ~4000 rpm. I cannot locate my mixture adjustment screw on my carb. I swear I'm not a fool but cannot find it for the life of me.

how much did the ruckus cost you and how much did you end up putting in to mod the ruckus? my sisters bf is thinking about buying one and modding it for another means of transportation lol

I bought it for 2 grand, but It had a bunch of recent maintenance like new tires, oil, coolant, belt, and a few mods like ncy gas tank cover and frame, trail tech vapor, and pollini variator etc.

A stock one runs about 2 grand used, and I've put on about $1700 or so in parts on it. Doing the work myself. To build my bike from a stock one would cost just over 4k I'd say

LOL. But he took quite the risk getting that close to her side/rear bumper to get that cup.

closest thing I found :

Chris Products (604) 888-8700 from Greater Vancouver Powersports

2nd one down. Other than that i looked at Thibault and motovan, nothing fits the small criteria.

hope that helps.
