3800 OTD at Eastside Honda.

Sales manager told me that they used to try to make a killing on them, but then realised it was a way to turn non riders into new customers.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]21493[/ATTACH]

From honda grom forum

I know many people will, are, and have already said why not just bore up the honda engine...

Well to my knowledge 22HP seems to be about the average best of a 214CC plus finbro engine

With the right carb the OOracing engine is putting down 28HP about as much as a bored up and turbocharged grom.
So I guess this option looks likable since it puts down 28HP.

They bore out 125cc scooters in Taiwan to 276cc So if there is a 3rd round of 4v bore out kits coming out in
the future for the grom going past 250cc then maybe the grom engine can break 28HP at which point I to
would just consider boring out the grom engine.

Still no news of anyone testing a turbo on a bored out finbro engine with the forged conrod
might hold up and last having the stronger internals and break 28hp but man what a pricy set up that would be

ooracing engines is about 1250usd complete assembled plus 100usd for carb that takes it to 28hp
mounting brackets, and other bits maybe another 500usd pretty competitive concerning price vs HP figures when compared to grom bore up kits that need pricy ecu's

I am really interested to see it settled and see a grom/MSX with an ooracing 4v engine Vs a Finbro 214cc Plus Engine Grom Somebody should make that video then post on youtube and share.

Then we could see 1/4 mile times and top speed and how much each person spent on all mods to get there.

That looks like a rocket ship.

So you removed the rear reflectors but kept the front?

Surprised none of the aftermarket vendors have come up with a dress-up kit for that.

Jeez, you can just about buy all aftermarket parts to build a whole Grom from scratch. It's like some of the more popular RC Monster Trucks (TMAXX, etc.).

You could build a no VIN bike

There's a aftermarket frame maker and everything else out there
