It looks more like a mini naked street bike to me. They're cheap, street legal, and fun to ride.

Sounds good! I thought it was a ", that's a hot bike".. cause I was looking at it... and *nothing* whatsoever overtook me.

Crf450r swap is the only right answer, because every grom needs 50+ hp.

Do you have a fuel controller? From what I've read they don't seem to work that well. Even with grounding out the 02 sensor the ECU still tries to fight the piggy backs.

I had a good deal on a Bazzaz Auto mapper but I don't want it if it's going to cause problems.

I dunno, there are quite a few bbk out there running pc5/bazzaz w/o issue

Just dont want to spend $500-600 for a controller alone

That kit I linked has everything for $400

Head, piston, cam & controller
May not be the most sophisticated controller, but $/value hard to beat

Probably will need an oil cooler on that kit also.
Still pretty good deal. Especially for Takegawa, which is a very reputable company. I'd like to see some long-term feedback from the kit. Wondering how well everything holds up.
