First items on the chopping block were the fender and taillight. Check out the fender eliminator and integrated LED taillight from Competition Werkes.

One of the more common mods on any two wheeled vehicle is removing the OE rear fender giving it a cleaner appearance. Available from Riders Discount, the Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator Kit does just that for your Grom.

Before:



After (pictured with a Competition Werkes Integrated taillight, write up coming soon):



Four bolts, a couple electrical plugs, and the entire fender pulls off.

Now that we have the Yoshimura Race Stand Stopper kit installed, we can start tackling other projects. First up was giving the Grom a little more pep with a gearing change.

Stock gearing for the Grom is a 15T sprocket up front and a heavy 34T sprocket in rear. We went with 14T and 37T Renthal sprockets and a DID 420 gold chain to really make it stand out.

Removing the chain was easy as the stock chain uses a clip master link. Remove the clip, pull the master link, and the chain will come right off.



The sprockets were also pretty easy to change out. A lock washer on the front and 4 nuts on the back were all that need to be removed to change the sprockets.



The stock rear sprocket weighed in at 1.15lbs. The new Renthal sprocket shown here weighed in at .35lbs. Nearly a pound shaved off. That's a massive rotational weight savings.



One of the last steps is figuring out how long or short you want your chain. We went with 54 links as this placed the axle right in the middle of the adjustment blocks.



Install the clip into the master link and you are done!

Generally after installing a new chain it will stretch after a few rides. Be sure to keep tabs on your chain slack and adjust as necessary.

Now that the Driven Rearsets are installed and having tried all the foot position options, we round that the bottom rear position was most comfortable for us. Obviously every rider is different but this was the majority vote for us at the Riders Discount office.



Driven includes everything you need for the installation, including these spacers.

We went full on mini-racer with our Grom and now you can too!



The full carbon fiber race bodywork kit available from Riders Discount still maintains street legal status (in most states) as it includes a headlight and mirrors, and the taillight is not covered.

Included with the kit is everything you need for the installation - upper, lower, 1pc tank/seat cowl, side covers, seatpad, seat support, battery tray, fairing stay, windscreen, headlight, top triple clamp, handlebars, mirrors, and all necessary mounting hardware.

The full race kit is comprised of 5 main pieces - upper, lower, 1pc seat/tank cowl, and side covers. A new fairing stay and battery tray are included in the kit for a bolt on installation.

Seat and seat support are also included

Didn't know if you had anything else planned for it. Making me want to piss off the wife and pick one up, haha. Would be cool to see how it sounds.
