Well this thing sounds awesome and fit and finish really complements the whole bike. Plus more power and less weight. Now waiting for the right intake setup. Come on my man Greg @ MNNTHBX. Also removed the rear factory fender and mounted the plate up nice and easy.

I’m sitting in the Dominican Republic celebrating the fact someone was dumb enough to be my wife for 20 years. If all 3 of our fender eliminator options are complete when I return, I’ll give you the in depth detail of each, and get something headed your way. Email me this weekend.

Will do and congrats on the anniversary. Really don't hear about long marriages anymore. Seems it's the trend for divorce nowadays. Nice to hear they still have happily married people still.

Went ahead and swapped out the stock tires for a more aggressive look. Maxxis 130’s front and rear. Got to say I love the look. Hopefully I can find time to ride this soon. Shot out to my buddy Dave @ FX Motorsports for the tires and install. If your a local to New Orleans. Definitely give him a call with any of your needs. Stand up guy and a genuine person. Hopefully I can figure out what to do next. Really waiting on a air box delete package. And still haven’t found the right turn signals that I like best. Trying to keep the chrome accents on it. To keep the old school look.

In my very humble grandmotherly opinion, old school went away when you put the Yoshi on it. I remember riding the little 50cc when I was very much younger and that exhaust shield is a major design cue.
Nice bike just the same. The yellow has always been my favourite.

The Maxxis 130 in the front/rear looks awesome. I'm assuming there are no clearance issues when running the 130 front? I might have to upgrade to those soon.

Frame plugs came in today. Slapped them in and was ready to go take a ride. Unfortunately for me the bike won’t start. Tried starting fluid. Plenty of spark. Full of fuel. No boom. So off to the dealership. Only 27 miles and my first problem. Hopefully it’s the fuel pump. Weird because you can clearly hear it when you turn the key on. Or maybe the ecm took a shit. I checked the fuses. All are good. Either way will post updates soon as I have them. Here’s a pic of the frame plug and 130 front tire

So far still not fixed. Called and asked about fuel I use and stuff. Spark check, compression check, plenty of fuel check, turn the key hit the button no boom. Turns over and over. Hopefully it’s a minor issue. Doesn’t seem to be. But it is what it is

I’m all about supporting local business, and certainly there’s some fantastic dealers. That said, we’ve seen some totally inept dealers as well through the years that simply don’t have the skill set to be of any help. Hopefully this isn’t he case with you....

No start, remove spark plug and check compression, if compression is ok, re-install spark plug and check if you can do a ECM reset like we do on the honda grom, if you can do a ECM reset and also a TP reset and restart monkey.

Good luck

Almost sounds the old days of the first Grom in the USA, some grom owners for got to turn ON the right handle switch. I would start checking the wire bundle that goes to the throttle body to make sure all the connectors are connected secure to the throttle body, F/I, throttle position sensor, etc.

Good Luck
