Why would you want to lower it?

you need new front forks and a new rear shock. also note that most aftermarket rear shocks will not fit with the stock air box on, so you would more than likely have to go with a filter set up. as for parts, you should hit up standard functions if you want quality stuff. ask for ming, and tell him that ryan from sdsf reffered you

I have a deposit on my new '09 Ruckus which I'll be getting in 2 weeks. The dealer told me '09 is the last year for the Ruckus which is why you don't see any '10s.

what are you talking about " '09 is the last year for the ruckus" the honda site shows 2011 ruckus i think your fact's are wrong bud and i'm not trying to start a argument. and to OP get on some ruckus forums and ask around as for part you can get them on passwordjdm and other sites

It is the truth. Honda skipped the 2010 models. They have the 2011 Ruckus ready to be sold. They are Orange and Black.



I love NOOBIES THAT THINK THEY KNOW EVERYTHING!!!

My mistake. I guess I can blame this one on the dealer. It's kind of weird that Honda skipped 2010 and then didn't make any changes for 2011. More power would've been nice.
