Default Will this motor fit in a current model Ruckus/Zoomer?

I've come fond to custom Ruckus's/Zoomers and was wondering if I can fit a

CBR 1000(RR) Motor on the thing?

I <3 the sound!

NO! You cannot put a 1000cc 4 stroke 6speed into a scooter chassis. You can take a cbr 1000 and put on scooter parts on it and ruin it.

It would be like putting a 350 in a Honda Civic. It can be done, but why?

anything is possible...

heres a 600cc ruckus... this should be plenty of power (maybe alittle too much for a scooter)

You'd seriously mess up your weight distribution, ect. You would basically just have a burnout/ straight line machine that would be dangerous. If you want a CRB, get a CRB. If you have a Ruckus, make it faster with lots of research into mods, or just swap the 50cc for the ever popular 150cc. I'd love to throw a 500cc honda bike motor in mine, but that would make quite a mess of things in many aspects...IMO. Also, I love my 100 mpg way too much to do that much to it.

I prefer you do that instead of putting any Chinese motor. It would be stupidly dangerous to ride, but at least you're not taking out a Japanese motor and replacing it with junk.
