For me 4th seems weak up high. Mid range feels great. Not sure if its a lack of flow in the head, or a lack of fuel because the mods

Mine doesn't feel weaker but it definitely still runs out of steam on the top end. Back pressure affects torque. Horsepower on the top end shouldn't miss the back pressure.

Eurobeaner is right. It is hard to say if it needs more fuel (which is likely) or if the heads are running out of flow. Easiest way to check is to Dyno and see what the air fuel ratio looks like.

With the ethanol based fuels, it's not the best way to check anymore. What we really need is a wideband o2 sensor and a DYNO. That gives you real measurements at different rpms and throttle positions.

Shit, just thought of it now, but I don't think I will be able to use the belly pan I ordered from moto x. Or I think I might have to cut parts off, because of how the bends are on my low mount exhaust. An figures the tyga one looks like it'll fit perfectly. An the ducts look cooler too.

Another question for people that already swapped out the front sprocket. Is there enough play in the chain to pull of the sprocket without giving it slack from the chain adjuster?

Yes. After you loosen the bolts holding the sprocket on, put it in neutral and the sprocket will come off easier.

Don't get too excited though because I had to tighten the chain when I was finished. Between the break-in stretching and the smaller sprocket, I needed about 2 full turns on the adjuster to get back to spec.

I should have my exhaust in the next couple weeks and will post the dyno charts. That will also let us know how much the a/f mixture is truly affected by the exhaust.

I also contacted Akrapovic directly and received this reply:

AT this time there are no plans to develop a system for the Grom.

Best,
