This is a discussion on Wibbly's Grom winter project, how to do a 300 build right within the Grom Builds forums, part of the Honda Grom Forums category; I ran a tank right down to see what the range is like. It does about 66mpg or 3.5L/100km. That's 100% in town riding with ...
I ran a tank right down to see what the range is like.
It does about 66mpg or 3.5L/100km. That's 100% in town riding with lots of heavy throttle. Not bad.
The fuel light blinks when the tank is still 1/3 full. So if I go by the blinking light my range is around 60 miles or 100km, though I could push that to about 125 if I really had to.
After running the tank down, how many gallons was the fillup?

And why is that? Is the area there to small for the adapter to fit?
the chimera kit puts the intake port very close to the frame.. (less than 50mm), there isn't room to build an adapter that will relocate the injector to that position. my design 100% won't work. i took a crack at drawing up a few different ones and it was just not happening simply. since i don't have a chimera kit i'd have to work with someone who did for the entire prototyping phase, and then i'd have to convince people to buy them. they would NOT be cheap, and from what i can tell most who do the chimera kit aren't looking to spend much money. so i just left that idea alone. too much for me to lose on it.
