Hey thought I’d start a build thread for my monkey. Had it for 2 weeks now from new and it currently has 45ks

The day it arrived up against my fully carbon fibre grom

The grom got sold so I transferred the sugoi plates over and went to work on the mods

Trying to make a fender delete with the factory tailight


Ended up going with these lights from empire garage.

Parts started arriving.
Tyga exhaust

yss rear shock until my ohlins arrive in a few weeks



Kitaco seat height annoyed me so I fabbed up new mounts to lower it as much as possible

finished the rear fender/ tailight combo. The lights can be adjusted in or out depending on what seat I use

Starting to get to the look I want. The kitaco fender lowering kit annoyed me as it sits too high with a weird angle. MNNTHBX Intake arrived and installed.


Mitas whitewalls on and side cover to fill in the gap where the exhaust used to be.

Kitaco front fender kit looks dodge

Modified the kitaco kit to get the new h2c black chrome fender as low and as level as possible.



Looking much better now. I added h2c chain adjusters with spools and a 30mm riser to the handlebars

As it sits 2 weeks after purchase and 45ks later. I love riding this thing.. I really should have got a monkey at the start instead of blowing a crapload of cash on the grom.

For those who run intakes I highly recommend relocating the horn. It cleans up the front end and hides these wires. Super easy to with some connectors and wires and reversible

Nice, I’ll have to take a look at that idea. Was wondering what I could do to tidy up that area and this might just be the answer.

30mm risers with a quad lock iPhone holder so I can run navigation, music etc..

Put on old school handlebars and chopped them to make them more narrow.

Also installed a power commander 5 from hardracing.





To cover up the frame holes I used lights designed for the handlebars of my bicycle.

Looking really cool. With all the style, are you planning on stretching the swing arm?
No stretch for me. Stretching isn’t really a mod bikers do in Aus. I wouldn’t stretch on the skinny factory wheels anyway and whitewalls don’t come wider than 130/70

Few upgrades now

Power commander 5 from hard racing installed.. I also got a auto tune unit but need to make an adapter to plug the wideband into the tyga exhaust silencer.
Also got a pod-300 display unit which I use to display rpms. I’ve mounted it using a quadlock

Also installed rear ohlins. Because the bike is lowered and I’m 76kgs I chose to use the 80kg springs. So far so good the rears haven’t bottomed out. I’ll have to sort out the front though. They do bottom out on big potholes.

I also shaved the kitaco seat a few inches back for more room and it feels much better. It still has crappy comfort compared to the factory seat but for what i use the bike for its great and I can easily flat foot.. I’m only a super short 164cms.

How do you like the bars? I have been looking at them. Also seen a set that were done by TB parts. Have not pulled the trigger yet.

I love the bars they suit the bike but I wish they were a tad stiffer. There is definitely some flex in them.
