Are you a Grom Owner/Rider from Texas? Let us know!
How much for the exhaust over their???
F150 and Rain,
where did ya'll put your money down at? was it A $100 refundable deposit? I'm near Sugar Land. I'm very seriously considering selling my Yamaha Zuma and getting this bike.
Did they tell you when you can pick yours up?
Hey lkwan. I did buy the luggage rack, crash bungs/axle sliders & rear shock online from Bikerzbits. The rack is rated for about 10 pounds, but it is stout & will no doubt hold my backpack's contents even if I go 20 pounds or so. The axle sliders/crash bungs replace the axle nuts. They take the brunt of the damage if the bike goes down and slides; the sliders are then sacrificed as they get ground down in the slide as opposed to the axle bolts. Think of them as cheap insurance against cosmetic damage. Plus, they just look cool! I'm replacing the rear shock because I'm a lot heavier than 150 pounds & I know I will need the beefier suspension. Not planning on any wind shield.Rain,
Did you buy the bikerzbits rack? They mention how much weight it could hold? I now have a yamaha zuma with bulitin rack, and i installed a med sized trunk... I hope my grom doesn't looks too odd with it.
Hmm none of that coincides with what they told me when I put my 10% deposit down on July 3rd. I'm 5th in line and they said they were getting in 6. If I were you I would call them back and double check. The only way this would make sense is if all 4 people ahead of me backed out and I'm now first in line.Barry Barber of Kent Powersports in Kyle told me they were getting 10 Groms in around Aug. 15. They only require a $100 refundable deposit to reserve a Grom. Give Barry a call & tell him I referred you. If you end up buying from him, I'll get $100 to use on whatever at the dealership I think I read a post yesterday from someone that said they were #7 in line at Kent Powersports, but I'm not sure if that was from the San Antonio, New Braunfels, or Austin (located in Kyle) Kent Powersports dealership. When I reserved mine on Saturday, July 13, Barry told me I was second in line. If you're serious about getting a Grom, I'd get your money down to reserve one ASAP because you may be waiting for months if you don't get one in the first or second alotment to the dealers.
Just read this, and that's crazy. I was quoted $3885.13 with nothing being installed. Looks like I'm gonna need to be the one giving them the call.The manager at Kent MS (Barry Barber) has quoted me a firm $3526.37 "Out the door" which includes installing a rear luggage rack, front & rear axle sliders, and a replacement rear shock. I have already purchased the accessories from Bikerzbits and will be providing them to the dealer for install.
Who did you speak to? Was his name reid. When i spoke with him earlier today. he couldn't come up with a OTD price. His answer was i don't know!!! I was completely unsatisfied with his responses.Just read this, and that's crazy. I was quoted $3885.13 with nothing being installed. Looks like I'm gonna need to be the one giving them the call.
