Project Ruckus part 4, Building the Ultimate Honda GET Engine

by Jeff Naeyaert

In part 3 of Project Ruckus we applied a bunch of bolt on mods to our bike to reach our goal of 50 mph with decent acceleration.  Now that we have hit 50, we still have some shortcomings to our project.  We feel that 50 MPH is the minimal top speed any street driven machine should have, any less and you end up being a hazard, cars tailgate and road rage may ensue.  At the least, you might get cars tailgating and cutting you off, giving you the finger.


 

Project Honda Ruckus part 3, 50 mph or bust!

When we last left Project Honda Ruckus, our first performance mods which included a Yoshimura pipe and a Bowls PC20 big bore carburetor kit had increased the top speed of our Ruckus from a pathetic 37 mph stock to a more reasonable 45 mph. However this was not fast enough to safely cruise on the fast streets of Orange County. The acceleration to reach this top speed was pretty lame as well. We had to get more speed, for safety and to be able to smoke the snobby Vespa riders in our area that would turn up their noses at our little Honda.


 

Project Honda Ruckus Part 2 - More Stuff, the Next Stage

by Jeff Naeyaert

In our Last edition of Project Ruckus, we worked mainly on getting the handling and braking of our bike up to a standard of reasonable safety, safe enough to handle the mean streets and venture beyond the safety of suburban neighborhoods and the pits at the track. Our bike is still far from our goal of it being able to handle itself on main streets though. For one it’s pitifully slow being barely able to creep up to 37 mph. At this speed the poor Ruck will get run over on the crowded, fast main streets of the South Bay where our office is located. It is also not as cool looking as we would like. So in this edition of Project Ruckus we are going to spiff up the looks of our ride and start working on the issue of power.
