General questions with straight answers!
A: Once the carrier picks up the package(s) you will get an automated email sent to you with your tracking #. Please allow 24 hours for system to update. Please check your junk mail.
A: If you can add the part in the CART we have it in stock ready to ship. We do not drop ship parts from other companies. We physically have it in STOCK.
A: You can buy a stock one at you local Honda Motorcycle Dealer. Used ones can be found on Craigslist or Facebook Classified either stock or custom. Used stock ones range from $1500-$2000. Modified range from $2000-$9000+ USD.
A: Stock 49cc Honda Ruckus 35-45MPH
Modified 49cc- 45-60 MPH depends on Rider’s Weight See Q&A Ruckus Section
GY6 Motor – 60-80 MPH depends on Rider’s Weight See Q&A Gy6
A: We only make the parts, offer support and ship parts. We are not a repair or custom shop.
A: These are Chinese copies of what a modified Honda Ruckus looks like. The are not the same as a HONDA RUCKUS. The Honda Ruckus has a cast front frame and tube rear frame. The Clones are all tubed frames and none of the Honda Ruckus custom or OEM parts will fit the clones.
A: Please check your local state but normally for 49cc Scooter most States are not required for scooters under 50cc. Honda Grom 125cc: since it’s over 49cc then most States require a motorcycle endorsement or license. GY6 swapped Honda Ruckus? This is a gray area since the title is 49cc then no endorsement. Here in the State of Florida cc motor sizes do not mean MPH top speed. Please check your local laws. All motorized vehicles on a US Public Road require a Driver’s License. So, if they are 12 years old, they cannot legally drive on a public road. Technically speaking even, a bicycle with a motor on it requires a driver’s license. We are not an authority on all local, state and national laws so again please check your local State laws.
A: No, not one with a title. You can buy a front and rear frame from your Honda Dealer but they are replacement frames and have NO VIN and no title. We have tried to build one from scratch with a titled frame and it actually cost us more to build then just spending $1500 to get a used one. Since there are many other parts needed other than the frame.
A: There are very few that do custom builds, but you would have to provide a donor scooter. We can do not endorse any. Many are expensive and that is why we make Youtube Videos and How-to instructions for the novice. Many of our customers buy their first tool set to modify their Scooter or Honda Grom.
A: No, Hours are Monday – Friday 9-5 PM EST. The website is opened 24/7, 365 days.
A: We do not have coupons. If you see a coupon code offered it is from a spam site. We offer free shipping on orders over $279 to US 48 states and often many of our parts are on sale throughout the year.
A: Yes, please enter the parts in the shopping cart online and your address and you will see the international shipping price. International customers do not qualify for free shipping and are responsible for any custom or duty fees.
A: No, we only sell NEW items. If we do have some used parts they have been tested and obtained by a dealer.
49cc related questions
A: We do not, since we do not work on scooters here.
A: We cannot as we don’t have the machine to do so.
A: We do not since you can get the OEM one to work great with the correct jetting.
A: No, you will not as your rpms will have to exceed 10,000 and then the valves will float.
A: Any of our white walls will work that the last digits end in 10 for example (3.50×10 or 100/90-10) here is the link for whitewall tires.
A: We do not as they are not made directly for the ruckus 49cc platform and are for the Chinese 50cc scooters with 3 springs.
A: your speed will be determined by your tuning of the scooter as well as your weight. Anyone over 230lbs will not be able to see the results that other lighter riders do reach in the 55mph range. Over 200 lbs will see more along with the 45-50 mph range since the scooter is rated for riders 220lbs and under.
A: It takes .6 liters so a little over half a liter or 2.53 cups. It will not read high on the dipstick so keep that in mind. Honda tends to overfill the scooter from the dealership which leads to loss of MPH.
A: Forsa shock is the only aftermarket shock that works with no stretch and is better than stock.
A: That will all depend on the stretch length and if you have OEM handlebars. See product descriptions for stretch kit in question-
A: You will need a flasher relay.
A: Then you will have to use resistors on the front blinker wires only (only need to order one set).
A: Yes, you can, just make sure you only use the 85 main jet included and DO NOT use the shim or 38 idle jet.
A: Yes, but you will need our jet kit to get the jetting correct for your scooter.
A: No, the 2003-2005 are different engine model, ECU and wire-harness with restrictions of 8000 RPM and no PCV valve. 2006+ and up are all the same 8200 RPM and PCV valve. Frames and all other parts are the same from 2003 to current. All of our parts sold work on 2003 to current models.
A: This depends on tuning, but the gears are about 11% taller so you will have to tune the variator accordingly.
A: No since the OEM wheel is 10” and the drum hub is welded into the wheel. Therefore, there is no way for a rotor setup to be fitted.
A: No, since the hub for that wheel is designed to run disc setups and these wheels are not made like OEM wheels with the hub casted into them.
A: No, it will bog down your scooter you will need an intake or exhaust to accommodate the extra fuel intake.
A: Yes, it is as the wind would have to match your mph and come perfectly sideways to be sucked in as the intake is on the side of the scooter. We don’t recommend running this intake for the off-road trails or on the beach.
A: Yes, they will you will have to cut the grips and the end of the throttle tube if your year ruckus has a closed-end throttle.
GY6 related questions
A: The 49cc will not fit on a gy6 hub. The 4/137 or 4/140 lug pattern is too large for the gy6 hub and sits past the edges of the hub. This is discussed in this video.
A: Typically, out of the box the gy6 can go anywhere from 55-65mph. Once you begin to do bolt-on accessories, such as a transmission kit and aftermarket carburetor then you can increase to 70+ MPH.
A: The gy6 can be a reliable platform. The key is to stay consistent with the oil changes and to make sure to check your valves every 800-1000 miles and make sure they are gapped at .004 intake and .005 exhaust at the top dead center. Remember many scooter rental places use these scooters and they are ridden hard, but the engines are taken care of. In China, the Gy6 motor is most common and is used a daily form of transportation.
A: The gy6 uses 10w40 oil and will use 9/10 of a liter or 900ml if your oil container has a window with the hash marks on it. Be advised it will not read on your dipstick when this motor is on a Honda Ruckus. So, do not be alarmed.
A: The Honda Ruckus is a Japanese 49cc liquid cooled engine that make about 4hp. The Gy6 is a Chinese 150cc air cooled engine that makes about 9-10hp in stock form.
A: The biggest bore you can do on the A-case gy6 engine is 63mm. This bore opens the walls of the casing very thin, so it is not a recommended bore. We at the shop would only recommend the 61mm big bore kit that we sell that is a drop-in kit and will not require boring to the motor causing the case to be thin like the 63mm.
A: The valve adjustment settings are measured when the motor is at top dead center and read .004 at the intake and .005 at the exhaust.
A: We go over the torque settings in this video attached.
A: This will all depend on the setup that you choose with the exhaust and wheel that you choose as well. Typically for a basic running setup with an open header it will cost about $1700. If you choose to go with a nicer exhaust or a cut wheel, then expect into 2K range.
A: We do not do the swaps at the shop since we do not work on scooters here and only make/sell the products.
A: We do offer a swap kit. The kit comes with the majority of the parts and then has hyperlinks for the other parts you will need to complete it.
A: We do not mount tires here as we do not have the tools or machines to do so.
A: We do not since we are always running our CNC machines to keep stocking items available for our customers.
A: It is not difficult as we make videos on how to do a lot of the work on our gy6 parts on youtube.
A: It is not recommended as the plastics serve as ventilation and cooling duct with the fan mounted off the crank. If the plastics are removed, then the motors tend to overheat. It may seem like they will stay cool without the plastics, but they were designed like this for a reason.
A: It is not too big for a gy6 150cc engine as if you get the jetting correct it will run just fine. Typically, it will be a 115 main jet and 32 idle jet.
A: This engine is made for racing use only and is typically not a good platform for daily riding as they are very temperamental. There are more potential issues to be aware of with a motor of this size. For this reason, we do not sell the 232cc motor or build these motors. The 232cc uses the B-case engine case and our exhaust does not fit the B-Case Gy6. Currently, we do not offer any B-case custom exhaust.
Grom/MSX related questions
A: Yes, the Grom is the US and Canadian Markets name. The Honda MSX 125 is the overseas name.
A: No, 2014-2015 is an OG model and has a tab for exhaust on the frame, different plastics than the later models. 2016+ is SF model and uses a different headlight, plastics, gas tank lid, battery box under the seat is placed in a different spot, and has an ABS Brake option. Some parts are specific to years. Check item descriptions.
A: We do not know as we only have Honda Ruckus here. We do not accept returns on installed parts and all orders will have a 20% restocking fee. If you have a clone and a Grom part works that you know for a fact from seeing someone install it, please make sure before ordering.
A: No, you can only use a 2.5 lowering link with no stretch.
A: Please visit TRS Grom Parts
A: No, you can use the stock map.
A: This depends on the rider’s weight and aftermarket parts. We do not offer many aftermarket engine parts and find to get more top speed we would just change the front or rear sprocket. We have seen many companies offer big bore engine kits but none we have found last long over 170cc. Since you are now into a motorcycle we suggest going to a bigger motorcycle or be happy with under 70 MPH as it is a mini motorcycle.
A: Yes, if you put the parts in the cart, we have ready to ship. We do not drop-ship parts or do pre-orders.
A: No, we only offer 12×6 wide wheel kits due to transmission output shaft issues and swingarm size.
A: Yes, A motorcycle license is required in all states, although this may be an authorization on a car license (Endorsement). Please check your local state laws as they may vary State to State.
