    DRock's Build Thread

    Doing a build thread to try and keep up with where I'm going and what I have done to the grom. I have been known to spiral out of control with the vehicles in the past, so we will see where this goes. THe grom was bought just as a DD back and forth to work and my first venture on two wheels.

    The day I picked It up


    First mod, had to get rid of the surfboard off the back of the bike, thanks to MNNTHBX

    Swapped to some black Ebay levers I got as a secret santa gift at work

    Ended up taking off the rear hugger and ditched the big ass mirrors and just swapped to 1 single drivers side bar end I got off amazon, nothing fancy.

    Then I got tired of not being heard while riding to work. Couldn't find a low mount SF exhaust that I liked. Saw some killer reviews on HOTLAP and that they had just released a SF exhaust.
    Took 2 weeks shipped from WeBike.Japan

    Exhaust is a work of art. Glad I went for something unconventional.

    Can you make a sound clip of your exhaust?

    I then hit just over 650 miles and it was time to dump the oil and see just how gnarly the screen actually gets. It was just as bad as I was lead to believe. Still running Honda GN4 oil for the first 1k to 1.5k miles. While I was in there I threw in the new Kitaco high flow oil pump and the Haleraceworks Clutch plate and all 6 Finbro springs.

    Oem everything/cover off:


    Oil screen:



    Spinner cleaning took over 5 wipes and all looked like this:

    Clutch springs/Plate install, used zipties to keep the springs seated until they were bolted down:


    Then came the Kitaco oil pump, I was hesitant and almost got the Takegawa because of needing to assemble it but it is literally a C-clip and metal piece. Super easy.
    Stocker:

    Comparing, Kitaco had the gear on it at this point:


    Significantly thicker:

    Nice work, I like the zip tie idea! I just did my oil pump and clutch plate/springs last weekend, way easier than I expected!

    It was being a pain in the ass to do all 6 and keep them seated. The zip ties came in clutch. Agreed, that everything else was pretty easy
