I know a lot of folks like the whitewall tires with the red rims and black paint, but you might want to reconsider due to a much better range of quality tires in blackwall. Since the Maxxis just aren't available anymore in 100/90 10's, there aren't any decent WW options for the Buddy. I think just Conti's and Shinko.
Sigh.. some bad news.. just after hitting around 1,100 miles and before my full conversion was even done.. the bike is down (for now.)
An hour before the scooter rally here in Austin, I was getting gas and I hit a patch of oil on the road and went down pretty hard.
No pictures yet, but the entire right side is pretty much messed up.. mirror, exhaust, peg, etc - it's all going to need to be replaced if the scooter is structurally sound. _________________ Oh, so they have internet on computers now!
The Fakejack shall rise soon. The shop actually has pretty much everything in stock right now to fix what was busted in the crash. One of the major changes will be replacing the prima exhaust with an NCY pipe. Per my other thread I'd been having issues with it scraping anyways and the NCY pipe seems to have better clearance (very similar to stock.)
Other future mods are going to be painting the rear handle and either getting black rims or getting the ones I have powder coated. _________________ Oh, so they have internet on computers now!
We're now at the two week mark of my buddy being in the shop and still no idea when it'll be ready. I like my Sym HD200 but I really miss my buddy. _________________ Oh, so they have internet on computers now!
I now have the scoot back in my possession, but sadly still not 100%, some of the replacement panels that came in were damaged.
As part of the fix, my prima pipe had to be replaced and with that I decided to give the NCY pipe a try and I have to say, it sounds a LOT nicer than the Prima. _________________ Oh, so they have internet on computers now!
ericalm: It feels more or less exactly like my Prima pipe. As I was leaving my dealer last night one of the owners was tweaking his NCY pipe and managed to get an even beefier sound out of it and wants to do the same with mine.
killa_ed: I believe they're the exact same ones that come stock with the 150 buddy. My shop managed to get a bunch from PGO a long time ago before they stopped being available.
Since I'm still waiting for parts I thought I'd play with my passenger pegs and rear rack since they're essentially throw-away parts. I also put my spare Psycho emblem on my new helmet. _________________ Oh, so they have internet on computers now!
Yeah, the Fakejack went down -again- but thankfully the only damage was to a front black panel that is already ordered and to be replaced with a red panel. _________________ Oh, so they have internet on computers now!
Haha - pretty sure it wasn't the whitewalls, but the rain and slippery metal grates on a slope, leading into a right turn. The Fakejack went down to avoid running me over, and I went down to avoid running over a black Buddy 125!
