Hi guys,

I bought a grom over the winter and put a bunch of parts on it hoping it would perform like my KLX110 (well w/143 BBK). It does not, it's a huge disappointment. I'm not sure where I went wrong, hoping you can help!

My klx143 is violent on bottom in 1st 2nd, & 3rd gear. Not crazy powerful as you go through the mid and top of the gears. I am looking for more of a clutch grab to play with wheelies. I know my KLX it is lighter, but it would literally flip if you hammer the throttle in any of those gears. My Grom will only pop up under 7mph with a bounce in gear #1... drastically different!

Here are my mods:
14 tooth front & 37 rear sprocket
o-ring did chain
Dinger built short intake
Yosh exhaust
Takagawa cam
Power Commander V & wide band 2
Takagawa high flow pump
60% stronger clutch springs
chimera clutch lifter plate

Thanks in advance!

The transmission in the KLX is meant for low end grunt and the grom wasnt intended for wheelies it was for mpg. If you go with a larger BBK like a Kitaco 181 it makes it easier and if you just swap the 300cc into it, you will now have a hooligan bike

Thanks for responding guys...I have a 143 in the basement, will this be ok?...also can I use the wideband 2 and Power Commander V?... I am asking because I know it does not touch hondas "narrow band" settings from 0%-80% throttle. Thx!
