I had a turbo s2000 before but it ended up in 1000 pieces and is still in 1000 pieces.The nsx has been sold for a while now.Problem is everytime they send a carrier trailer to pick it up and send to Cali they say its too low.lol.It happened twice already and they haven't came back lately.Its already paid for and everything,just sits in that same spot getting bird pooped.Im actually a Lexus fanboy but I stopped buying cars for now.No more car modding for a while,if any.

But yes,if you need anything Ruckus let me know.Remember to stick with 2006 and up years.

Got the tire mounted today and it was HARD!!!!! Took several tries to get it to bead.My bro got hit with the ratchet strap,bled all over the place,it was crazy.Then to top things off we had to grind some of the oil neck off.I would never do another one of these if someone begged me too.lol.

The exhaust is going to look awesome...very cool and unique I love how your tires on the rear wheel are rounded and not flat/lawnmower-like like in your previous rendition. This Ruckus will definently have a more sport/SS-tone compared to your others...good work AlleyKat! I am not a fan of this whole "JDM/Ruckus" thing but you are making me a believer. I believe in you! <3

I'll take a pic once I get the rear frame back hopefully tomorrow.

People are asking me how do I get the tires on.In this case the widest "smooth" tire they make is a 140/90/10 and the fat wheels are 10x8's.So its not that I dont wanna put a wider tire,I just dont have a choice if I want the street bike style.

Here is my method.

Obviously this tire is too small.Let it sit in the sun face up so the tire slides down and gets stuck on the back half.

Add a ratchet strap around the center and tighten the out of it.

A little soapy water.

Put wheel face down,ratchet strap tightened,air it up while someone else pushes the tire down.Once you see it catch some air then your good.

And done.

I got a couple of PM's asking me if I will build them a Ruckus completely.Sure I will,just buy a used one or new and i'll gladly tear it apart for you.Dont pay more than $1,600 for a used 09 though.If anyone has one and just needs help installing small bits just come on by my place and i'll gladly help you install everything.

No it will stay beaded right.Before I ship those out I take out all the air out of them. Of course if you ride it completely flat for miles I would imagine something would happen eventually.

I decided to take the Yoshi from my orange Ruckus and put it on the Ruckus from this thread instead.Mainly cause the orange one has more of a chopper look to it while this one will be more sport looking.

1rq3yr

Now the orange one will be getting this custom dual to go in with the chopper look of that one.

I know your wanting a more sport looking tire for the rear, but I found this:

http://ssl.delti.com/cgi-bin/rshop.p...&nichtweiter=1

It may fit better on that rim and be easier to mount. I didn't look too much, but I'm sure they can be sourced stateside. BTW, I really like what your doing with the Ruckus. Great work.
