Doing a full stunt setup on the Honda grom. Going to get some pro tapers soon, you guys wanna send me some links to levers that you prefer for stunt riding? Thanks for all suggestions guys, looking at some branded “mzs” on amazon. Thoughts?

MZS levers are garbage. They are fragile and also they have tons of slop.

Are you going with a dedicated caliper for the hand brake or using a valve and the stock caliper? If you do a dedicated caliper, like you should, then you're going to need a lever with a master cylinder. The best is the Magura HC1.
Thanks... u saved me from a bad purchase. So... I wanted to tap into the rear caliper to save money. You seem opposed. Why is that? Also I just want to do the clutch and brake for now, I will need to add a lever for the rear brake as well though. So basically I need three levers total on the end setup. What would you suggest for all three. Lol. Thanks again. You have no clue

I'm also just getting into looking into the stunt parts thing so I don't have too much advice to offer. After talking to people in person and doing a lot of research online most people aren't happy with tapping into the stock caliper.

Don't bother getting a clutch lever for the stock perch. Get a one finger easy clutch. RSC makes a nice one but there's cheaper ones out there. Don't get a junction valve, they leak. They're only held on with one bolt and they will flex with the pressure.

That sounds great for easier clutching it up!

Thanks for the advice. Could you clarify on that a little? I’m not sure what the stock perch refers to as well as one finger easy clutch (looking into that right now) did u give me advice on the lever or both the lever and rear hand brake? Noob sorry ha.
Thanks again.

Is their the lever u meant “they call it the shorty”? Otherwise I’m lost ha. Also will I need any adapters or perch spacers? I should mention I’m installing 1-1/8” pro tapers I should mention Incase that’s an issue. Pic attached below

Yeah, that's the one. You could search on ebay or amazon for easy pull clutch lever if you don't want to spend that much. You don't need the perch spacer or adapter for the grom.

I had a handbrake junction valve adapter on my old pit bike. It leaked from the beginning. I tried putting a hose clamp on it and encasing it in epoxy putty but it didn't work.

Thanks for the heads up... balls. So what separate rotor, and caliper? Fml. Idk where to begin haha.
Also I’ll probably check out eBay for cheaper short levers and come back here to post he screenshot to make sure I’m not buying some junk if that’s cool with you lol. Thank you ?

Providing attachment below. Would that be suitable? Also is it worth saving the money over the more expensive option? Pretty easy install id assume?

Forget all those knockoff brands. Support the guys who actually came up with the product... RSC. Pay a little more, get a much better product. Lifetime warranty too. Even if you crash and break it. That's priceless for a beginner. You WILL crash stunt riding, a lot. I speak from experience...

If you really want a handbrake, get a dual caliper bracket. Perfect Stranger Designs makes a nice one. Allows you to bolt on a P32 or P34 caliper in addition to your stock foot brake caliper. Then the two are fully independent of each other. Much safer design. I have a junction valve that came with a CBR600RR, and I'm scared to even bolt it on a quad.

As far as the brake lever, you will break those too. Get a couple stock ones.

Also, necessary parts for stunt riding a Grom: stunt oil pump, 60% stiffer clutch springs, and a billet clutch plate. Cage and subcage are optional but recommended. A wider set of Pro Taper handlebars will also help to keep the bike in one piece in event of a crash, as well as give you more stability overall. At first, air your back tire to about 8-10 psi, and learn in a parking lot if you can.

Wheelies are a lot of fun once you get it down.

Stock brake levers? Don’t recommend getting something smaller and cheap?

I think the stock brake lever is perfectly fine. And it's cheap to replace.

As far as the handbrake levers that come with the Magura or Brembo master cylinders, the levers are also perfectly fine.

If you really want to stunt the bike, put money towards the oil pump, clutch springs and plate. You will need all 3 to reliably wheelie without hurting the engine.

I have all three. Jus waiting for my stock clutch to go since it’s slipping before I do an oil change and install everything. Been messing with drifts instead of wheelies for time being. And what come with the master cylinders? Can I get just the lever for handbrake? Maybe I’ll just go stock like you suggest

The brembo and magura master cylinders come with nice adjustable levers to begin with.

A 1 finger lever usually won't hit the ground in a crash but I guess it can happen.
Recommend a cheap 1 finger on the front brake by chance? I don’t wanna be replacing stock levers all the time learning haha. I’m going with rsc or whatever lever for the clutch. The front brake lever ok to cheap on?
