Pictures to follow as soon as I'm done riding, just stopped for some dinner.

Had 1 mile on her when I picked 'er up and before I rode a mile I had her running 57 mph out of the crate! SOOOOOOO much fun. BBL

Ok, I'm not the best photographer (all I have is the iPhone) but I will do a quick run down of my thoughts and start my build.

I am EXTREMELY pleased with the fit of this thing and I'm 180 lbs 6'2" tall with a 34" inseam. Got to 57 mph quick and was surprised at how fast the little 125cc got to speed.

Pleased to see my stands work good =)

The gold rim stripe looks damn good in the day light so I'll try to get a better shot sometime soon. Composimo, I hope you see this as well. Your fender eliminator is freaking awesome HOWEVER, the stock tag light and the stock turn signals do not work together as a "bolt on". I had to drop the metal bracket off the turn signals and move the turn signal forward a hole for it to work, still hits the exhaust shroud and the exhaust can itself. WARNING to anyone taking off the stock license bracket, ITS A MOTHER FUCKER and I'm good at tear downs and rebuilts, ugh.

Other than that, I'm completely satisfied with this Honda product and am excited to be lucky enough to have one now. For the people that don't have one yet, it's worth the wait imo.

So is there a idle adjuster? An how for it wheelie?
Not sure about the adjuster, good ? I'll look today. As for the wheelies I was excited, it'll do 'me just fine for us. Clutched up from a slight roll and had my weight way forward since the rear brake is still slick but it should be a blast once we dial in everything and the bikes "broken in".

Careful, another member mentioned the exhaust melting his turn signal
I'm also curious about this. I have the Composimo TT and my grom but I'm hesitant to install it because I don't want to run into that same problem. How did you avoid your blinker from melting?

Composimo mentioned that they will be designing new tidy tail to work with the US version and we will be able to exchange it as long as it is still unmounted. This was mentioned on one of the thread here.

Or at least the same type of set up like the f4i, where u can just unscrew a adjuster screw on the throttle stop plate? An screw in a adjusting cable. I should have an extra f4i on laying around somewhere.

Yea my F4i adjuster came off a 929 ... depending on the size of the threads they should run right in. I definitely want it because the top end of this bike is actually better than I thought. A little extra torque wouldn't hurt muah haha

Fashion. There's an idle screw but it sits tight against a protective shroud at the housing, possible though

Hey Swartzie could you rewrite this in English so I can find that screw?
