Got a 2009 Ruckus with a swap for sale. Modded with the intent of having an interesting looking intown runabout that's above all else usable, not an unridable showpiece.


Batman mount (Bushings where it mounts to the frame and the engine makes for much smoother thumper experience than a weld-on or hard clamp mount design, and the shortest stretch possible without the valve cover hitting the frame means quicker more precise turns and better rear suspension geometry especially if you've got a little more mass on you)
Gy6 rear disc brake kit
Gy6 stock rear fender/hugger
Gy6 Handsome boy front fender
Mojo shock mount adapter
NCY low down shock
NCY front fork, disc brake, and 10" wheel kit
NCY throttle tube
NCY Foot brace (Great for providing additional hardpoints to mount cargo using bungiecords or nets.)
NCY stainless steel gas tank cover
NCY chrome lowered seat frame
NCY chrome drag handlebars
Primo Pro handlebar stem
R6 03-05 integrated tail light
Kijima windscreen
Daytona Asura multifunction gauge (currently only configured to work as a tach, ambient thermometer, turn signal indicator, and clock but with the right sensors it can display head temp, oil temp, speed, fuel level, keep track of maintenence intervals, track top speed and max revs. Basically waterproof and highly shock resistant.)
Generic tinted rectangular mirror (mild wide angle)
Generic "performance" cdi (I doubt it actually does anything special but the stock one burned out a couple years back and this was the replacement I bought)
LED compatible flasher relay
New battery as of this spring


BN157qmj variant gy6 with the 12" standard width wheel
Generic big port head
Generic increased spring rate valve springs
A-12 cam
NCY intake manifold
OKO28 flat slide carb (legit knockoff of the keihin PWK with hexagonal jets designed for 4stroke application, not the knockoff knockoff that's setup for small 2strokes out of the box with small round jets)
Uni filter
Scooterworks 20 sprag starter clutch (installed spring 2016 when the stock one failed)
Gy6 8 pole stator
NCY super transmission set (three 10g and three 14g rollers currently installed.)
Gates Powerlink 842 20 30 belt
BTX drag exhaust

It'll do low to mid 60s on flats with a light rider, and since installing the slide carb the fuel economy has improved into the mid 80s on average and I've seen as high as 95mpg. It feels very stable everywhere at all speeds it's capable of reaching with the exception of on the freeway going over expansion joints. There's something going on with the wheelbase of the ruck and the distance between the joints or the rebound rate of the shock that results in constructive interference which makes for a very unpleasant experience.

As for the bad: As you might be able to see in the photos, the battery box has a bit of damage. Also originally the plan was to install a big bore kit but plans changed when I found out how thin and flimsy the BBK cylinder skirts are. I already had the OKO28 though and liked the fuel economy bump and improved throttle response so I kept it installed. The problem is despite what a lot of ruckus and gy6 guys will try to tell you, 28mm is just too damn big of a venturi for a stock 150cc, especially when it's a slide carb and the venturi doesn't have a throttle butterfly reducing its effective cross sectional area. As a result the flowrate and therefore atomization at idle is poor and when the engine is dead cold it's doubly so. It just means that on cold startup you have to baby it with throttle and start riding with the enrichment "choke" on. It only takes a minute or two, usually by the second stop sign leaving my neighborhood, for the engine to be warm enough to get over the atomization hump and idle and run at low rpm without enrichment. Once over the hump it idles as smoothly as it would stock and revs freely. If reaching down and working a choke manually isn't what you're into the stock carb will also come with the sale and you can do whatever you want with the OKO at that point. The exhaust is very loud as well, which may be good or bad depending on your preference and where you live.

As for parts, I have a stock 835 belt, 24mm stock cvk carb, stock headerpipe and gy6 exhaust, spare transmission parts, roller weights, shackles and mounting hardware to move the footpegs back to the forward position, a pair of bar end wide angle mirrors, and an assortment of pilot and mainjets for both carbs that'll come with the sale should you want any of them.

Clean title in hand and it's registered until next spring. Willing to entertain cash offers and trades for road legal bikes and other vehicles. Shoot me an email and we'll see if we can make a deal. No quads though. I don't want your quads.
