So i LOVE the idea of swapping sprockets, but i HATE the ide of having an incorrect speedo/odo...there's this handy device known as a speedo healer that plugs in between your speedo sensor and your speeo. Have any of you used one before? How hard is it to get to the sensor on the grom?

awesome question, but since this bike is so new, an the other models are kmh, it might be a bit before you see something like that. you can always use a phone gps to confirm speed an then you know how many mph your off.

True...theres one out for the crf250l, and the two bikes are made in the same factory, so i was hoping that the same part would fit the Grom

I have one on my jeep. Works great. Was truly plug and play and adjustable for my tires and gears. I would imagine it will come with instructions on where to plug it in.

Interesting.. So I am curious as to what sprocket count everyone has change to? 14T front?
That's what I am hoping to change out today along with new Yosh exhaust & pro Taper bars.
Lots to do..

Yes most common is 14T in the front. That's what I went to. Quite enjoyable.

I really love the 13 so much more than the 14. I tried the 14 again and hated it. The 13 tooth just keeps it in the powrband so much better and prevents it from bogging on hills

Maybe its just the higher rpms but it seems to cruise way higher kn the highway.

Did it affect top speed much? Also, anyone who installs a speedohealer...PLEASEEEE do a write up

Why not fashion the speedo sensor to the front wheel? Ironically, it'd probably require a healer to dial it back in.

My argument is that with as much sprocket swapping as I'm sure will be coming, at least we'd have an accurate speedometer.
