Gonna get a drop in filter and mod the air box also.
Don't like the idea of an open air filter.

I have a buddy thats really good at welding... Might have him cut that section out and replace it.

I also have a friend that makes custom cafe racers: http://cognitomoto.com/

He asked me if there are any parts that grom riders would want for their bikes. He said that he would make me and a few people I know some prototype parts to test out, so that he can sell them.

Any Ideas on custom parts? triples? Top nuts? Foot peg brackets? better fender eliminator??(Im not pleased with the CompWerkes FE). Front sprokets, rear?

You should check out www.gromnation.com

A lot of good manufacturers out there. Even in the US

I've tried 2 types of exhaust, intake, and taillights, lol

I've pondered the idea of getting someone to make a headlight bracket similar to the Honda Ruckus that would hold 2 of any standard 4" offroad/driving lights.
It would give people a lot of choices on choosing their lights and get rid of that dinky looking stock headlamp.
The front end of the Grom is the only thing I dislike.

So they can control wheelies while their feet are off the pegs doing sick mad stuntz.

It's easier to run an extra line to the rear disk by adding another caliper for the hand brake lever.
