    Introduction's are in order

    What's up fellow Grom riders. Im purchasing a 2014 that has been set up to race with WERA and already has a few go fast parts installed. Ohlins suspension front and rear and some other good parts. What should I look at doing next without breaking the bank and still run in a stock type class with this little bike?

    Im Eric and Im 50 years old but love motorcycles and racing them.

    Check wheel bearing to make sure your wheels are turning freely, check your chain to make sure it is still usable for racing. Check your engine compression and document the PSI so you'll have a baseline on what the engine health is like. Check your brake pads to make sure it is ok and flush out the old brake fluid and install new fluid. Check and clean your air filter and check and see if your spark plug color is with in reason for a healthy engine.

    Good Luck and Ride it like you stole it.

    Welcome! Fellow racer here too - NorCal area.

    Being it is already set-up for racing, probably is good to go as is.

    Change oil with good race oil (if needed), check brake pads, check / adjust chain (or replace), and replace tires, if needed.

    Most importantly, find out what the allowable basic mods are for the class(es) you plan to participate within, and compare to what is currently on your bike, then go from there.

    Other than what is already on the bike, upgrade only the stuff that you feel needs to be changed, or fixed, and or comply within the class rules. Otherwise, race / track as is. No reason spend additional money if you don't really need to. Use that money to fund your track day(s) and race class(es), and or self protection (gear).
