Hey guys!
I just bought my grom grom about a month ago and so far have put on a big gun exhaust, k&n air filter, took off the front fender, and will add a 13T sprocket. Suspension is next on the list. But, I miss my old gsxr and sadly can't afford another bike (full time student, part time worker). I was wondering if it was possible to make the grom like a 125cc moto gp bike in terms of riding position? I've looked up the handlebar situation and it seems clip-ons would be the best bet for a very aggressive riding position? would the seat have to be trimmed/lowered? Is this even possible in terms of the geometry of the bike's footpeg, seat position, handlebars, and etc? I would like a bit of a more sportier feel.

Any tips and/or sites to help me get started would be awesome! Sorry I am a bit noobish. I can't seem to find any specific information on this. This is my first bike that I am modding myself and its been tough doing it without a garage but lots of fun!! :big smile: I've become completely addicted.

will those handlebars just create a longer reach? or will i be able to tuck really well with those on.

+1 for Racerbarz and I also recommend Driven rearsets. I have both, it's much more aggressive but honestly it's not like a GP bike. Camincider and I both have the Racerbarz and rearsets:

would getting a different swingarm that lowers the tail end help at all?
and would you happen to have a link to where they sell driven rearsets for the grom? i've only seen those sold for other bikes.

I'm no engineer but if you're going for a more aggressive riding position then you wouldn't want the seat to be even lower as it would counter or diminish the effect of lowering your handlebars/clip-ons. I might be wrong but this seems logical to me. I think the key is lowering your grip and raising your feet position (aftermarket rear sets). Thoughts?

Honda Grom Seats

Guys,
Be careful of Thailand seats & seat cowls. They are made for a Thai sized person. Unless you are under 5'6", it will be too short. I just had my daughter mark my Grom seat tonight,
because I'm going to reshape the foam, and recover it. I'm 5'11", and my butt was 4" from the back of the seat. I included a photo of my Yamaha YRZ385. It took a lot of work to get the seat right, and to be comfortable. Most café bikes are really uncomfortable, good for only about 50 miles, before you want to get off the thing. The stock Grom seat is the same. I did 134 miles in one day, and my butt was numb.

I am a korean that is 5'7"...
but i do understand your ass being numb after 150 miles.
the stock seat is pretty shitty when it comes to comfort.
