    Most of the early grom owners know that this Front sprocket has a little slop but if you want it a little more snug than fab your own plate and holder and come back with a pic of your design and show proof your system is better than Honda engineers system.
    I'm new to the Grom. I've been in the power sports game since I was three when I started riding go karts. I've never experienced this before. Again, a little play is fine, but the vibrations are not. I need to figure out a way to record the sounds.

    I don't believe half of what dealers tell me either.

    I've got Superlite sprockets and haven't had any issues. Where did you order the sprockets?

    Interesting. I may contact Superlite. The little bit of play doesn't bother me. It's the new vibration sounds that I don't like.

    I can just about guarantee that your vibrations / sound is from an improperly aligned / adjusted chain.

    I double checked that using the lines on the NDC adjusters and using the Motion Pro chain alignment tool.

    ”Riding” go karts. Never heard it stated like that in the “power sports game”, maybe you ride karts in a culdesac, but normally they’re piloted, driven, raced... I’m doubting your veracity. Listen to Cisco, btw. And research a little please. We have a search option.

    If you only believe half of what your dealer says, how can you operate? I’ve found bikes are sold VERY differently than anything else. The sales guys ride, simple. The price is almost fixed. Just research what they will delete; shipping, prep and assembly... Then cultivate personal relationships with the service guys. The old $20 handshake has always worked well. All of a sudden, your bike gets worked on while it’s hot and your service bill is cheaper.

    Oh, and the thing about recording the sounds almost made me choke on my drink. Still chuckling.

    Please keep posting. We’re here for you.

    Have you tried calling Sprocket Center? I've been buying my SuperLite sprockets from them since I had a 919 and have never had an issue. Is the vibration still there when you're off the throttle with the clutch in?

    I never said I raced go karts, did I? But you are basically calling me out and questioning my aptitude, my honesty and my integrity.
