The Small Fast Things Honda Ruckus LED Tail Light Strip Kit is one of the cleanest and easiest taillight kits out there to give your Ruckus that sleek and stealthy look.  If you dig the stock tail light Christmas tree setup...more power to you, but we have found that a taillight mod is one of the first things people do to their new Honda Ruckus.  And the Small Fast Things LED Tail Light Strip Kit will allow you to do that all without breaking the bank while providing a bright, high quality, and waterproof setup.  Below are simple instructions that you can follow to install and use the LED Tail Light Strip Kit.  Remember, install...

The Small Fast Things Ruckus GY6 Swap Mount is a culmination of years of development, prototyping, and testing.  We sought to address a variety of different problems with conventional GY6 mounts while creating a mount that was easy to use and cost effective.

One major problem we have found and sought to address is running issues associated with carb angling and positioning.  Conventional GY6 mounts out there require the use of clocking flanges that faces the GY6 forward and at odd angles.  This actually affects the fuel level in the carb bowl and causes problems such as hard starting, rough idling, and bogging at W.O.T.


The Honda Ruckus R6 Tail Light is a great early modification for the Honda Ruckus.  It gets rid of the stock taillight tree and gives you a sleek stealthy integrated tail light that fits neatly underneath of the Ruckus seat.  Installation is a quick and easy and requires minor wiring.  You will also need to cut and grind off the frame bracket that holds the stock tail light if you want a cleaner look.

The Small Fast Things R6 Tail Light kit includes everything needed to install a R6 Tail Light on a Honda Ruckus.  The kit includes the R6 tail light that features both running and brake light as well as left and right blink...

The Ruckus GY6 Swap harness is one of the core essential components needed when doing a Honda Ruckus GY6 150cc swap.  The importance of the harness is that it ties in the stock ruckus controls to the electronics of the GY6 150cc motor as well as being tailored to the correct length and connection points of the Ruckus.  You can't simply bolt up a GY6 150cc motor and expect it to turn on and run, it needs to be connected to something!  This is why time needs to be taken to decide which harness to ch...

You want to swap a GY6 150cc motor into your stock Honda Ruckus in hopes of going 60+mph on your small two wheeled machine.  So how do you do that?  The GY6 150cc does not simply bolt onto the stock ruckus frame.  You need a motor mount that will create a mounting point on the stock frame that will allow a GY6 motor to be bolted onto the Ruck.  This is where the Small Fast Things GY6 Swap Mount Kit comes in.

Built not bought and to each their own.  That pretty much sums up Jerry's Ruck (@jerry_marine).

Jerry came to us a few months ago inquiring about our parts, we were able to point him in the right direction and we are amazed of the Ruckus creation he has poured countless hours over. 

These days, top notch builds don't necessary mean having a deep wallet, but more so the time and attention you take to building it.  Jerry's ruck is a prime example of someone finding a passion and pursuing it by all means.  Back in 2017, Jerry discovered the world of the Honda Ruckus when he saw a few Rucks (probably ours...) while on vacation in...

An alternative to GY6 swapping a Honda Ruckus is doing a big bore kit on the stock Ruckus motor.  Though very hard to obtain parts unless you know the right people, there have been 1 or 2 kits that have popped up over the years.  Be warned, a Honda Ruckus Big Bore is a very DIY mod and will require modification to your cylinder head and associated parts.

What are the benefits to big boring a Stock Ruckus GET motor as opposed to just swapping it out for a 150cc?  For one, you retain all of the bulletproof mechanics of the Ruckus motor (water-cooled, magnetic starter, magnetic water pump, simple valve train, etc) that make...
