OK box of parts arrived today. Installed the pully kit with the 8gr rollers and the new belt. After a few runs top speed went from 75 ish kph to 85 and over kph. VERY happy. My old rollers have turn to funky shaps.

I have a a new set of 8gr and 9 gr rollers still to use.

Wow....that's great results. You're going to have a blast at the rally. You'll have loads of time for all the stops with that top speed.

My first few runs were very smooth. I did notice from cold strats a bit of hesitation or chugging. It seems to go away when warmed up a bit. I also noticed it doesn't scream to or past redline off the line anymore. It still pulls hard and may even have less of a flat spot now. I only have 25 k on the new setup and we will see how it goes. I think with the continues high speeds of the mbsr run it will chew up the new rollers.

If you have time and you're confident you have a good roller weight setup, you might want to invest in some higher end weights before the rally. Money doesn't always buy longer lasting weights, but some of the cheap ones really chew through.

My springs are yellow. I will order a clutch and red springs. I was looking at the thibault imports scooter book. They offer Carbon reeds and possibly a cage. $33.95

I'm trying to figure the headlight mount out. I have one 55w driving light that I want to mount. Also the GPS mount and power.

I'm still not sure how to mount a light. I do have the stock Var. I will bring it. I will also bring all my spare Ruckus stuff.

I think my stipping or chugging when cold is from the new belt weights.

Well the light is mounted and wired up. I only mounted one of the lights as I was not sure if it would draw to much power. I also mounted and wired the GPS. The GPS is wired direct to the battery since I can turn it off. I wired the one light direct to the battery but have a on/off switch mounted on the plastic VIN cover.

OK I ordered a new headlight bulb. They sell an H4 45/45 watt. I will be ordering a new clutch with red springs.

This is what I'm looking at. I seem to need a clutch but is it wurth the other 2 items. The clutch spring comes in 3 different RPM ratings. Any advice appreciated.
