Beautiful! Can you give us some details on what parts you have put on?

Is the crime that bad out there where you are at? Your neighborhood (and your Grom) look so nice, I guess I assumed that it wasn't... Of course always better off safe than sorry. I have seen several reports over the years here regarding stolen Groms, kinda like the Honda Accord of motorcycles.:rolleyes:

Hey, just wondering how tou like that Zoom exhaust, how loud is it (in db) standing next to the bike at idle? Also, can you change the oil without having to remove the exhaust?

Fairly low crime where I live and ride but I am a bit paranoid. The Grom is so light its easy for some clowns to just throw it in a pickup or van. The little cheap motion alarm took ten min to install and only cost $18. Works great and nice piece of mind.

I like it - I installed the Chimera before the Zoom exhaust and the new intake make the bike sound much more throaty and a bit louder. Never tried the Zoom with the stock intake. I first ran it with no baffles - sounded like hot garbage and way too loud. Backfired like crazy. Added the optional baffle and sounded way better. The idle is very nice, not that loud at all. Its a little louder then I would prefer but not by much. Nice and quiet at idle and low RPMS and not too taxing keeping it wide open for longer rides. I had my adult son ride it around our neighborhood at low and high RPMS to see if it was too much for our neighbors and it was not that bad. Sounds louder on the bike, even with the full face helmet on.

I was also concerned about changing the oil. On Amazon answers someone said they just removed the exhaust and it didn't take that long. I did my fist oil change with the new Zoom exhaust on and put a piece of tin foil around the Zoom canister and that worked great. I shaped the tin foil to channel the old oil into a pan. Worked great, the Zoom did not get in the way of removing or replacing the oil drain plug.

Thanks for the reply on that, and one other question - is that a Pro Taper handlebar set, or just the crossbar? I didn't see that in your cost sheet. I'm thinking of getting the PT handlebars, just not sure which ones yet, I already have a set of SE's (Seven-Eighths, or 7/8") on my CRF, and I love them, they are super sturdy, and much lighter than the stock bars...

Full bars

They were $37.69 when I bought them but they went up in price. I love them. Perfect width and height. I also like how they match the rest of the bike. Very light weight and seem plenty sturdy. The stock bars are surprisingly heavy.

Those look really sharp on your Grom, I noticed on PT's website https://www.protaper.com/product/111/aluminum-78-handlebar/black/mcid/21861 that they offer several bend profiles for this product as well. I am going to assume there that since the rise on those are lower than the stock bars, that the reach to the bars is a bit further, and that you can tuck a bit lower for straightaways? I'm on the fence with regard to that, my middle-aged back may not like sitting pitched more forward on long "touring" rides, but for the curvy 22 mile mountain back road "race/test track" I have here, they would be perfect for faster runs!
One last thought, did you have to do any drilling/customizing of the bars or control hardware to get them to mount properly? I had issues on my CRF, because the control mounts had indexing nibs/protrusions that went into holes in the stock bars, and the PT SE's didn't have the same holes, so I just filed off the nibs to make it work. I have not had any problems (in 5 years) with the control mounts sliding or slipping, so far so good!

The bars were easy to install:

Per the YouTube link above, I marked and drilled the holes in the new bars. It took about 20 min and the holes are right where I want them.

The new bars are much lower. They are also a bit wider then stock. I am 53 years old and find the new bars much more comfortable than stock. I also feel I have better control and the bike feels more planted with the new bars. I used to race bicycles and do long 200 mile bicycle rides and I still ride so I am comfortable in a aero position for long periods. I am also only 5' 5" tall so I can still sit upright with the lower bars. With the little power the Grom spits out getting low adds about 5 to 10 MPH to the top end.

Yeah, I'm currently 52 years young, 6'2" 210lbs., and used to ride heavily customized GT/Trek mountain bikes 50+ miles/day (some mountain to coast rides as well) in my 20's & 30's, but that, and the daily long distance running in the Army trashed my knees/hips, so I ride motorcycles now.:rolleyes: At the price point for those bars, I can get both sets (high and low) for the same price I paid for my PT SE's on my CRF. Thanks for the reply, I think my OG will be getting new "ears" soon...
P.S.: Thanks for the vid post, that helps a bunch!
