Honda Ruckus Stretch Kit Installation
One of the first things you are probably considering when modding your Honda Ruckus is stretching out the engine. A stretched Ruckus not only looks cool but adds some stability and control when "drag racing" or riding low and slow. Below is a detailed look and installation guide to our Honda Ruckus Dual Mount Stretch Kit. Our stretch kit is fully adjustable between a 10 or 12 inch stretch and allows the ability to use either stock wheels or fatty wheels all in one kit. This guide will outline both the installation using stock, 10x5, and 12x5 rims and fatty 10x8 and 12x8 rims.
The first step to installation is to remove the engine and all wiring from the rear frame. Though not necassary, it makes it easier to rewire and tuck wires later when you have an idea of where the engine and components will sit with the engine stretched. Also, it would be wise to do any painting with everything stripped off the frame to prevent any nasty overspray. The cleaner the build, the better the build.
The next step is the bolt on the Dual Mount to the rear cross bar of the rear frame. This is the point where you have to decide what type of rim setup you will be using either stock size rims or fatty rims.
