2019 Roughhouse 50

PostPosted: Tue Aug 13, 2019 11:49 pm    Post subject: brand new RH owner Reply with quote

Hello !
My 1st post here and I wanted to say hello !
I Just came from the dealer today with a brand new 2019 RH
Lovin it so far . I had the dealer de restrict it . I was going to do it myself BUT he said " it will void your warranty" so I folded and let him do it . He wanted to charge me 150 bucks Rolling Eyes but haggled Him down to half price .
Even then That was kinda pricey IMO .
Drove it home and wow this thing screams ! Very Happy hitting 45+ on straight ways and awesome takeoffs off the line .
Thought that the RH would be some kids toy but I'm surprised I'm 5 ft 8in 200 lbs and it handles me quite well more then fast enough for putting around town .
I do have a question , I see this forum and my manual says " black cat edition " Huh ? Whats that ? The bike says RH is that just some color scheme?
I wanted the sport edition but the dealer had none , just standard RH left in stock and I snatched Her up LOL .
Another question is it possible to buy the rattler rear shock by itself and swap it with mine ? looks like cake to do but will it fit ?

Welcome to the forum. It is a great place for scooter information, whether you stay with the Roughhouse or add something else. Many of the folks on Modern Buddy have multiple scooters from a wide variety of brands so fire away with those questions.

The Roughhouse is a great scooter. The Black Cat 50cc that you asked about was a special edition scooter from Genuine that they produced in 2006 in conjunction with Black Cat fireworks. https://www.motorscooterguide.net/Genuine/Black-Cat/Black-Cat/Black-Cat-50.html It was marketed as a more premium version of the Genuine Rattler 50cc. These scoots evolved into the current Roughhouse 50cc. I actually own a Black Cat but it's been repainted away from the original paint job.

I would bet that most of the Rattler 50 and Roughhouse Sport parts would fit the regular Roughhouse and that doing the shock replacement would be easy if you have any mechanical skill.

Welcome to the forums! I know it's tempting to blast up to full speed, but if your bike isn't broken in yet, you really do need to take it easy. Otherwise, you'll soon be posting about needing a new top end, and how it should have lasted longer.

cool now I need to track one down . the reason I want to replace the rear shock is that it has already bottomed out a few times I am hoping that upgrading the rear shock will help
