Now if only the subcage I ordered would ever get here.

(kinda cheating because it wasn’t all put on the same day, but it was in a span of less than 24 hours)

hows the seat feel?
I finally got a chance to go out and put some miles on.
The first thing you notice is it's firm. But firm is good for a motorcycle seat. Soft foam is what kills you after awhile. The other thing is the height. This makes you feel like you're riding on top of the motorcycle. The reach to the bars wasn't a problem for me. But if you like to hug the gas tank with your legs, it really changes that feel and takes some getting used to.
Is it a ride all day cross country seat? I don't know yet. Maybe.
Is it worth it to get rid of that stupid hump in the middle of the stock foam? Yes.

I would be interested to know if the screen helped or hurt top speed.

After 6k miles of riding on the stock clutch I installed the 60% stiffer clutch springs and EBC clutch disc. No more slipping and the engagement is solid.

Fitted some power pures cause I was sick of the front wheel tucking in. Haven't tested them yet as it's raining, a fairly rare occurance here but it is the middle of winter. Bit like mid summer in the UK.

Also made up a rose joint gear linkage and volia no slop.

Haven't managed to see it the screen I put on a few weeks ago made any appreciable difference to top speed. Still waiting for a dead calm day. Good thing about the Grom is you can do a top speed run without having to look out for cops.

Washed it.

Found left footpeg quite loose. Tightened up both sides with fresh loctite.
