    I may look into the sprocket idea.
    Thanks.

    I'm 250lbs and while I'm not burning past cars on steep hills, I can maintain the speed limit (45ish) on even the longer hills. On the super steep hills, I try to plan for them. 95% of the hills I encounter are not an issue though.

    Stock gearing, exhaust, fuel controller, intake, and cam.

    Difference being, the Monkey has higher profile tires making a tall gear ratio even worse.

    Ah, that accounts for the difference!
    I like the stock gearing. I can go 50 mph at 6,500 rpms.
    It's nice not to have to wind out the engine.

    Ahh, I didn't realize the tire profile was different, but that makes sense. Stock Grom rear tire is 130/70 vs. 130/80 on the Monkey. That's a 5% effective difference in gearing. Dropping a tooth in the front lowers the gearing about 7%, so you're just about on par with a stock Grom's gearing. Bumping up a tooth or two in the rear may not be a bad idea since 14/34 is a pretty popular gearing on the Grom as well.
