I bought a Mounkey 3 weeks ago and things got out of hand very quickly from there. I have no idea what this bike is gonna end up looking like but I think I’m already done. I had planned on buying a used Grom a long time ago but never pulled the trigger. At that time I had ordered a 14t sprocket so I had that sitting in my tool box when I brought the Mounkey home on a Tuesday. On Wednesday my oldest son went and bought a Grom with exhaust, well I couldn’t be slower than him so I slapped the sprocket on. It was all down hill after that. After seeing a photo of MNNTHBX’s Monkey I knew pretty much what I wanted mine to look like so now it was time to order everything. The first thing I ordered was the Supertrapp exhaust from MNNTHBX. While I was waiting for that to come in I was searching eBay and came across a used MNNTHBX intake and bought that. They came in the same day and I opted to put the exhaust on first without the intake.

I rode it with just the exhaust to work for one day and then researched how lean it could run with intake and exhaust and decided f-it how bad could it be? So I came home that day and slapped the intake on.

That’s when it got really out of control. A coworker and I bought our bikes the same day at the same dealership and I am a really bad influence when it comes to doing things. I wanted to order every part from MNNTHBX to make my Mounkey look exactly like their bike. I reached out to them but it seemed everything Composimo makes was out of stock for the Monkey. I didn’t want to keep the stock fender and wanted it to look as close to a cafe racer as I could do what did I do, I ordered MNNTHBX fender delete and tail light.

At the same time I ordered the shifter lever but it’s sitting on my work bench. Since I couldn’t get the Composimo bars and after looking around and seeing no one had installed Clubman bars I took my shot not knowing if they would fit. Well wouldn’t you know they do.

Since everything takes so long to ship from eBay during Coronavirus I started to doing more and more research for companies that make Monkey parts. Well low and behold I come across Mojo Customs. It seems he had all the parts I wanted in stock. So I ordered his stretch kit, drag bars, and from drop kit. Those arrived Friday night but I have had a busy weekend and have not put them on. I have also ordered twin chrome remote reservoir shocks for the rear. I am also waiting on DH Motoring cam and tune to show up. The cafe bars look good and it was definitely what I was going for but I do plan to install the Mojo bars to see if they are anymore comfortable. It’s a 21 mile each way ride to work and I don’t think that is going to cut it. I am sure it will only get more fun with a cam and a tune. I have probably watched every video on the Grom and the Monkey that there is on YouTube. I have two young sons and an older son, we are all having a lot of fun playing with our bikes. It is getting my younger sons into motorcycles and it is getting my older son out in the garage learning. My Father and I used to ride bikes together when I was younger and he has ridden every bike I ever owned, he said my Hayabusa was too fast. Last night he rode the Mounkey and said it was fun. I will have had my Mounkey 3 weeks this Tuesday and have already voided the warranty with only 370 miles. Let’s see where this goes.

My son already doesn’t like riding with me on the way to work since my Mounkey is so much faster than his Grom. He’s gonna be really pissed once I throw the cam and flash in it.

79 dollar eBay shocks on. I can jump on it and not bottom it out. The real test will be on my way to work tomorrow. Hopefully I can get some height back with these when I put the stretch on.

The bars look good (y)
If you’re thinking of going with a Kitaco seat; I’ve got one for sale.

I was talking to him about 3 weeks ago and he said he had just gotten them back from the powder coater, I don’t think they are on his site yet.

Theres a guy on one of the fb groups that was able to use the stock line. It is stretched, but he got it to work. Let me see if I can find a pic.

Thanks! That looks really tight, I guess if my line doesn’t come in by next weekend I could do that. I really need to ship off my ECU so that they can send it back with the cam so I have that this weekend to do. I need to go faster.

I haven’t put it on yet. I am waiting for the brake line to come in. If I get bored tomorrow I may put it on. I can’t ride it anyway since the ECU isn’t in it.
