Yes. But it will have to wait for more funds.

One of the fastest Ruck -> GY6 upgrades I've heard of.

Excellent work.

The build took about 6-8 hours working at a snails pace. I was in no hurry. The longest part was the wait for the kit. Tear down took about 2 hours.
The long story short. If you want to do this upgrade to your Ruckus. And want it easy. Buying a kit from Rucksters is a great way to go. The parts are all new. And the motors come from a quality distributer. Rucksters makes sure you get the right parts. But the best part of the kit is a full plug and play wiring harness. The worst part of these upgrades is merging the gy6 and ruckus harness.

Well it's not as fast as expected. But the jetting is not right yet. But considering it was me and the dog weighing in at 410 lbs. 48 mph ain't bad.

The phone may be a bit optimistic. It shows you went 497 MPH. Not bad...

what do they usually get, maybe you need to change the gearing. You could have a super fast scoot up to 55 then hit the wall because you need taller gears

does it at least accelerate faster then stock?

I reserve (and often exercise) the right to be wrong, but that looks like a chopped and modded kid's jogging stroller to me.

Oh yes. It's much faster. Zero to 35 with no effort. Where before it wouldn't hit 30 with me and the dog. I weigh over 300. The dog is 80. I think its doing good. Jetting it better could give me another 5 mph. But maybe not. I did go with a stock pipe. So even with the uni filter. It will only flow so much. I wanna try stepping up one richer on both jets before playing with the variator and weights.

The Chinese scooters with GY6's often top out around 55-60mph. That's pretty low for a 150cc's in comparison to better made scooters. The fact that you and the big dog are maybe only 7mph under isn't unexpected.

It started life as a Chariot brand bicycle sidecar with a home built articulating bracket for the scooter.

Then I decided to build something better matching the scooter's style and able to hold 2 dogs based on the basic Chariot design:

Sorry for the thread jack...

AWESOME! I agree with you on the clean stock look. It just looks cool.

As for performance, thats about right. Your 400 pounds total, so 48 MPH is great. You shouldn't expect much more out of it, with proper jetting you may get to 50 MPH tops, MAYBE a little more. BUT thats plenty for what your doing! MUCH better than that slow old Ruckus redlining along at 35 MPH and taking its time to hit 25.


Mikegigabyte yes this is about the speed they hit the wall. My Elite 150 accelerates just great, but past 55 MPH it starts to hit real high RPMs and has nothing left at 65-70 MPH. These engines are designed to flatten out their power at those RPMs, so thats why it doesn't hurt them to go WOT. And the only way to gear it higher is taller final drive gears, and a 150 cc motor isn't producing a whole lot of power so I think the stock gearing is good for his weight.


approachbears yes a good 150 cc liquid cooled scooter should get to 65-70 MPH on GPS. But these air cooled low geared cheaper engines top about 55-60 MPH. But still thats PLENTY for the city and backroads unless your a speed junky.

But good job and great posts! Keep posting!

so now thats its 150cc can you legally take on freeways, or do they go off of the scooter model. I always wondered about that, where I live it must be 150cc or larger to go on freeway. always good to have that option even if you cant stay freeway speeds
