So yesterday I installed the RS2, along with the DH Motoring ECU. Huge shoutout to both Kraze Motorsports here in Los Angeles, for hookin it up with the pass off... and to DH Motoring for the ECU! Can't wait to test it out!

Obviously I am filming it all for the channel, so I wanted to tell you guys that the first episode of the series will be coming SOON!! So deff be sure to sub to Goon Rides on YouTube and Instagram (links down below)

Today, I plan to splice the turn signals, and also install the new tail light! This should be fun!

Another thing, I am still waiting for the second can of purple paint to come (doing all the small things like the garnish's purple, and the main plastics matte black), so I'll be painting the fairings matte black... now I feel like it'll eventually chip, so I want to wrap it. Knowing me, I'll waste $$ in vinyl, and I'm in LA where there's a high demand in vinyl wrapping, so it'll cost $600 to wrap plastic, so my only option is to buy "graphics". I was looking at this one site... can't decide if I should leave it, or if I should get the matte graphics, or if I should get the carbon fiber option. You guys tell me lol. Thanks!

We did LOTS of things on the gromski yesterday! New chain, new sprockets, rim tape (SUPER EASY), Installed the flashed ECU and Yoshi pipe (did that the night before)... I also installed the front end, and man does matte black and purple look good! I also installed the rear end panels, along with the gas tank panel. ONE STEP CLOSER! Trust me, it looks like there's 5 different shades of purple, but in real life it isn't bad at all! Love it!

You're gonna use the 4T kind with the motorcycle on the label, right? Regular mobil 1 like you would put in a car will ruin your clutch.
Oh yeah I use Mobil 1 4T Motorcycle Oil, it's grey and red, a one liter bottle. I've used that in all my street legal bikes

Huge update... I got all the painted plastics on, and threw on gloss black Honda Grom stickers (found em on eBay). I put my cocksstuntparts subcage on but then took it off (bc of the pipe ---->) I also took off the Yoshi and put the stock pipe on for a while, I have been practicing wheelies on my driveway lol. I pretty much installed everything but the handbrake, axle sliders, and the clutch kit.

I can't lie, I'm not too impressed with the build. I thought I coulda done better. You know what, the bike overall is good, it's just the mismatching purples. The painted parts (Gear Shifter, Brake Pedal, Turn Signal Boomerangs, The two circle side garnish cover thingis) don't match the rim tape, and the rim tape doesn't match the levers, and the levers don't match the seat cover (which looks pink now). I haven't even installed the brake lines, and those match the cover lololol. Oh and the stunt cage is it's own powdercoated color. I have 3 options. One, leave it. Two, take off all the purple stuff and find a matching purple (kinda hard) Go black with the seat cover and go purple on the grips (black levers). Or three, completely change up the colors. Like maybe do an all black build? Idk haha
