Looked on your website and no Pricing on these bad boy hardware yet. So what is the ball park figure, I'm very interested espically since I will be building my takegawa 181 4V engine soon.

Might have to pick up a 5 speed also since it would mean splitting the case

I assume you will also have a video how to install this hardware and also the 5 speed hardware

It's an oem crank worked by Falicon. The rod came from Finbro, and I had it bushed by Falicon so that I could use an oem wristpin size with my Takegawa kit.

On a 1 to 5 beer scale where 5 beer is the most difficult, how many beers would it take to change a rod on the grom?
its probably most definitely a 5 beer.
drop the engine
remove clutch, spinner, flywheel/mag
split the case
yank the rod and crank.
(and remove the head and cylinder and piston)

Its pretty much a complete disassemble of the engine.

Thank you for the explanation, Professor. I had a feeling it would be difficult.
I never disassembled an engine before and always wanted to try. I also believe in upgrading internals to match the performance upgrades.

I'll give it a try when I get my BBK!
