    Wow, we have a lot of cool Monkeys and we just got them. The mods are super individualized to the owner. Does anybody like the new fender? I am “all go and no show” but it was cheap and offers a ton of protection. I wanted the down bracket for the stock fender, but this is much cheaper. I like it. I may get it wrapped in yellow chrome or monkey yellow or silver chrome. I may paint a yellow racing stripe on it.

    What fender is that? It would be real easy to loose some (but hardly all) of the Monkey look and do a cafe racer look with the Monkey or a street scrambler look (high fender for that). Put a mini cafe fairing above the round head lamp Monster style, put the racing stripes on a painted/color matched fender with vinyl. Maybe raise the tank a little to accentuate (and make appear larger) the cafe style instead of the Funky Monkey style.

    It is a matte black Grom fender, got it at partsfish for 25 bucks delivered. Tooter showed me. I just want more protection for the oil cooler. I prefer to be all function over form, but it does both.

    The Grom has supports in front of and behind both shocks. The Monkey only has a right support and it must differ slightly. I had to fabricate a little bracket. However, I rode it first and cracked it. Also, the nose rubbed a little, so I took a steak knife to it. I will order another and do it correctly.

    Funny, all those paint schemes are in the mix. Probably go with 2 fat stripes in Monkey yellow.

    Got my TTO head temp gauge to 358F. It wants to stay about 320, I had to ride in 3rd gear for a few miles at 6000 rpm to get 358. Under 375 is good, right?

    MNNTHBX got me all squared away and I finally got the Mtake installed which literally took 15min, super easy, and I highly recommend it. Excellent customer service on their part! As far as performance, it definitely changes the sound with the Yoshi full system, and I've actually noticed that off the throttle the sound is not nearly as loud as it used to be which I did not expect. The intake does have a ticking intake sound at idle which takes some getting used to. In terms of performance there is a noticible difference in throttle response and my usual mountain ride I hit 69.2mph instead of 66.9, which isn't huge, but I'm back to stock gearing now, so I should probably do another test with the 14t up front, but I'll probably wait until I get my ECU flash or Bazzazz as I'm in desperate need of a tune now.

    Sunset cruise in the keys. The Grom fender is hanging in there. I love my TTO head temp gauge, no more worrying.

    Lots of yellow bikes out there... I did the first oil change and stole lithium battery from my Grom to lighten the load.
