    Picked this up about 6 months ago, stock as a rock with only 5200kms on it, and damn is this thing fun.
    Bought it to be a cheap on fuel city run around but now ive upgraded a few things i almost ride it everywhere!

    Heres a few pics of it when i first picked it up



    It was awfully slow when i first picked it up stock, struggled to hit 55/60km/h which in my mind was dangerous so first things on the cards were some mods to improve speed:
    Ninja Scooter Variator + lighter roller weights
    NCY CDI to remove the rev limiter
    New Daytona Kevlar Belt + new oils/coolant etc

    Plus i also got rid of the ugly stock rear light setup, in its place an r6 integrated tail light

    Heres a few more pics after taillight install plus the other stuff



    Just from these upgrades i could comfortably cruise at 60km/h and could hit 72km+ with no major wind. So much fun to ride around, and so unbelievably cheap on fuel!
    Rode it around like this for a few months before i decided it was time to upgrade a few more things

    Next on the list was :
    Full Yoshimura TRC Stainless exhaust
    Stock Airbox delete in exchange for a New uni filter and custom manifold. (also rejetted carby to suit new exhaust and intake)
    Rear Fender delete

    Pics of Yoshimura Exhaust



    Now comfortably cruises at 70+kms with my best top speed lately being 82km/h. I still need to play around with the jetting of the carb cos its still not quite 100% right

    More updates to come when i motivate myself to do more to it, but at the moment im just having fun riding the thing

    Next on list:
    Low down seat
    New bars + head stem
    wider rear wheel

    more pics to come

    Ah set me back just under 3k with a year's rego, which is a lot for a scooter. But I've already had about 10 people hassling me to buy it for much more haha
    Yeah don't mind the beewees, hopefully we get the New Honda grom /msx125 next year. That thing looks super fun

    Performance parts I bought mainly from the US and the UK, and I doubt there's a specialist in adelaide for the ruckus but what do you need done? I pulled mine apart like 20 times so can pretty much do whatever you need. Pm me if you need anything
