Honda’s upstart NPS50 scooter, better known as the Ruckus, has generated a large following, garnering acclaim for its reliability, efficiency and minimalist styling. Wearing little more than a small cowl over its front forks, the Ruckus leaves little to the imagination. Even more mystifying is the fact that Honda managed to hide all the necessary components, such as the battery, under such a small amount of bodywork. So, how does one replace the Ruckus’ battery? Fortunately, the process is as simple as the Ruckus itself, requiring only a pair of screwdrivers, and can be completed in a handful of minutes.
Tools Used: Tools, Phillips-head screwdriver, Flat-head screwdriver, Battery
Change the Battery
Locate and remove the four Phillips-head screws that secure the front cowl to the frame of your Ruckus. Separate the front cowl by pulling the inner cover (the cover facing the the rider’s seat) to expose the battery tray.
