    Is the stock circlip/stopper ring still used mate?
    Our lord who art in minibikes
    GROM be thy name
    Bring us this day our new top speed
    And forgive those who can't wheelie
    For thyne is the kingdom, no power but all glory,
    On earth as it is in turn seven
    For ever and ever, braaaap!

    Dude, if you ever consider selling the parts used in this mod as a kit, I'd be interested.
    Parts stores around here are for $hit...

    The itty bitty lil clip that sits in the stock notch of the damper rod about an inch from the top? Nope, it is replaced by the small silver washer in the OP.

    Okay, so nd4spdbh hooked me up with the parts needed to do this mod ($9.00 parts and shipping) since the parts stores around here suck. I really didn't feel like yanking the forks out and swapping out the oil - so, I didn't. I figured I'd try it with the stock oil and worst case scenario, I'd have to rip it apart again. I unbolted the handlebars, jacked the front end up (jackstands and a 2x4 under the engine), and followed his mod. The whole process start to finish took about an hour.

    The difference is utterly night and day, even without upgrading the oil. The bike feels so much more stable going into turns and even bouncing my weight onto the handlebars wouldn't make it bottom out. I took it out for about an hour and a half and I just couldn't get over how solid the front end feels now. Hands down, this is one of the best things (for the money) that I've done to the GROM since I got it.

    Hugethanks to nd4spdbh for coming up with this amazing and inexpensive mod..!!!

    So you swapped the fork bits without even taking the front wheel off?

    Yeah, the forks stayed in. I jacked it up like seen below (from when I wrapped my forks), and just loosened and removed the fork caps. Once everything was loose, I just picked up on the front tire, raising the fork internals, and did the swap in hardware. I was surprised it worked out so well...

    How about an itemized parts list with part numbers from where you got it? Maybe we could find these bits on Amazon or an online parts store. I really want to do this mod also. Thanks for sharing and kudos on the creativity and problem solving.
