    The bearing contamination has always been my concern. At least one Grom shop agrees with me.

    It had Cracked at the hub where the swing arm bolt goes thru the rearsets and frame, the bead weld around it came undone and pieces of the frame were breaking away.

    They replaced the frame but local legend Zack Demboske is doing the swap, i dont trust the dealer with my shit they dont seem to care about torque specs lol
    That sucks. I'm appalled that my stock frame is already rusting. Do you have a way to contact Honda? If so, please PM it to me!

    Flashed ECU from CJR and a dingerbuilt short intake made a considerable difference for me! Other mods before that hadn’t really made any difference to power. Got a 140/70/12 power pure on the rear and one up on rear sprocket too, which may make some difference! Can hit 65+ easily now on my 2018 Grom 👍🏻

    Thanks.

    I was hoping for an email because who has time to call companies during the week? Not me. I think that's why companies don't give out emails. They want less people to bother them.

    I called Honda First, that guy took all my info found me in their system thru my vin. Documented my issue then said I would need to contact my dealership cause I was out of warranty.

    Took my grom to dealership I purchased from, they took a bunch of pics of the broken area as well as top and bottom of swingarm where chain slides along the swingarm guard. Waited a week for a honda rep to come out, a week later dealer called with new frame.

    YES even the new frame comes with that surface rust that seems to creep from the crevices, I think who ever honda has at the factory doesnt know how to properly use the acetone lol.
