Im going to do a build thread on putting an OG/SF Motor in my 2023, some will ask, why not just buy an OG/SF, well I already have several, like the looks of the new bike, but the motor is limited, and Im looking for more than its 149cc potential. To start with, to put a old motor in the new chassis, you have to relocate the top mount, also the back of the motor is wider by about 1/4" where the two motor mounts go, so you either narrow the case or widen the frame, I chose to widen the frame so I can swap motors with my other Groms without having to keep track of spacers etc...

Sick! That's the only thing that sucks about the new model is with the new position of the head studs, it looks like 150ish cc is going to be the limit for bbks. Looking forward to following this build.

This is good stuff. I have a 2023 monkey and was sadden to learn about the limiting bore size. I so was planning on a 181/183 but NOOO. Let us know what your planned end result (HP ect.) will be. I'm so tempted to try a 300 swap. The problem is when I think about this, I usually end up thinking of just buying a 300 as a second bike. Well, actually it would be my forth.
