Right off the bat I'm curious about your new mirrors. I'm a new Grom owner and the stock mirrors suck. Can you telll me the brand of your mirrors? 1st thing I need to get.

I wonder why it says " currently unavailable" on Amazon. I went to Hoosier Garage web site and it says " coming soon". I'm thinking since their web site isn't even up, they had limited stock and you lucked out. I can't find them anywhere.

So changes...

Out with the Ohlins upgrades... Decided to go Racing Bros. Their kit has adjustable rebound and dampening for the forks, so it seemed like a no brainer. Grabbed a Racijg Bros shock as well. Will be here tomorrow.

Exhaust is at the local bigh performance moto shop getting the O2 bung welded onto the exhaust...

Have decided to do Takegawa cam chain tension as well since I’m gonna be in there doing the 4th bearing...

Updates...

Exhaust on...

87655


Aracer installed...

87656


Changed my mind and went with Racing Bros for suspension... It's here, but might be a minute till its installed.

Gonna get the spring powder coated in Himalayan White Pearl to match my plastics...

87657


Have made some changes to my plan... Currently talking with DHM, about a 153cc kit. That would be my dream displacement for what i want to accomplish and for what/how I ride.

Going to end up going with the Kitaco Type 2 Cam. It's on its way to me now.

Did a lot yesterday...

First oil change, at 630 miles. Quite a bit of debris in the oil and in the screen. Glad to have a real filter now. Will probably only give it 200 miles, then do another oil change and pop the cover off to check the screen again.

With the new oil came a new oil system.

Kitaco Clutch cover.
Magnetic Oil Drain Plug
30% stiffer clutch springs
Chimera Billet Clutch Plate

Takegawa 4th Bearing
Drilled the oil hole mod for the 4th bearing
Takegawa Cam Chain Tensioner Arm
Kitaco Duracon Cam Chain Tensioner Cap

A little late, but I don't think you have to drill for the 4th bearing on an SF Grom. That is an OG thing I think.

Racing Bros Fork Kit installed.

Maybe a tad stiff than I like. Could see myself maybe getting .60 springs in a year down the road once everything else is finished...

87780


87781


Also wrapped my forks to get rid of the gold and to keep my black and white theme going strong...

87782


Rear sets are getting changed out to Monkey rear sets to get rid of the cast silver and rear pegs I have no need for soon. Monkey rear break arrived in the mail. Hopefully will get to it tomorrow.

Monkey rearsets installed. Much cleaner. You need a Monkey break pedal, right spring and six 12mm cut washers to do this.

87802


After.

Got my spring back from the powder coater today. Got it done up in Himalayan Pearl White to match the plastics.. Won’t get it on for a few days as I’m waiting for a few other things to show up that I will put on at the same time. Will hopefully get it on by next Saturday.
