Got a call yesterday from the dealer I orignally went to about the Grom about their only unit coming in, they didn't take deposits so I went first thing this morning and with the help of my kickass girlfriend, rode away on my very own red Grom.. Not sure what I want to do as far as mods, I'm just basking in even having one :shocked:

Place I take pictures of my 2 wheelers


And my initiation process, I have to do a nice burnout with everything I get


Stay tuned for more pictures and ill figure out mods eventually

So I think I'm done riding for the day.. Clocked 62 miles so far and 39 of those have been 2up with the gf.. With us both we mustered 58 on flat, sitting up an 62 with a pretty good tail wind.. So far I love it and for whatever reason this seat doesn't seem as stiff as Jeankysti's did whenever I rode on his.. Idk

anywho, my only mod so far was peeling off the tank cover stickers and placing my second hondagrom.net sticker in a place another member did which I thought was awesome


My only current "woes" have been finding a middle ground between second an first gear when coasting in the 10mph range.. You either bog second and rev out first, I'm sure ill figure it out but right now its bugging me and also I (think) I'm hearing a clatter around 7k in 4th gear but I'm not sure, it's bit windy today and it may be something just shaking around but it wasn't there earlier, now it is so ill be listening more to hopefully source the noise or just live with it

Tore off the right panel for shits to look at things.. Ended up unhooking the intake tune from the throttle body and taking it for a spin.. WOW it felt like it could actually breath! Revved out like nothing and sounded 100x better! I think I'm going to pick up a pod filter and run it on days I know there isn't a chance of rain

i pulled the plug to see how it is doing, not many miles after the air box mod but it seems to be running clean


Also had my girlfriend sit on it so I can take a picture of her

Rode it to work for the first of many times to come.. Enjoyed it a lot, good to have my own two wheels again. I got about halfway to work when the fuel indicator started flashing with about 75 miles on it (note probably 60 of those had been ridden 2up) so I slowed down and drove it easy.. Made it to work and on my way home stopped to fuel up, now 93 miles and nearly 20 miles of riding with the fuel light on it only took 1.1gal.. Nice! Lol

Also broke 100miles on my way home, bitter sweet to see it roll triple digits but so much fun doing it

A couple notes.. This was my first time out on the road at night and the lowbeam sucks, I need to adjust it.. The highness however was fantastic! I wanted to leave it on all the time haha

also I rode to work open throttle body, popped off the intake tube and pushed it aside and then rode home with it reconnected, defiantly a difference in the top rpms, routed through the airbox it struggles to rev past 8-8.5 and open it has no issue getting to the limiter in wot runs.. I ordered a cheap pod filter to run when I know the weather will behave.. Not to mention it sounds SO much better with the open tb, I did notice that the DIY airbox mod goes give the intake a throaty tone vs stock and would recommend it to anyone looking for a little something

I actually adjusted my low beam tonight. I have it so the reflective dots down the road are illuminated but go dark if I weight the fork. That way I know it's not shining in people's eyes. My adjustment bolt (located on the bottom of the assembly) had to be moved about 2mm forward to be just right.
