UGH another mechanical failure, 2 this wk

so i'm cruising home today, thought i heard lifter noise (i wear earplugs) starts acting funny, then shuts off entirely.

all electronics are functioning

bike turns over but no spark, plug looks fine

what should i do, i think i may have lost the piston since it runs so hot (and today my cooler got here, oh the irony)

gonna try and get my mechanic buddy come over to check the compression.


and summers almost over kids start school soon and i won't be able to ride except rarely :(

Purchased my 2015 Grom two days ago from Honda of Houston. Didn't go in planning on buying one because the website only showed red and white in their inventory. Low and behold when I got there they had a black one sitting right out front. Thing is loads of fun.

Anyone have any opinions on the MNNTHBX exhaust? Quality/sound/etc? I like the underbody design and from the videos I've watched it sounds pretty nice, but videos can be deceiving.

Only complaint I have so far is the seat, I get uncomfortable very quick on this bike. That or I'm not use to riding again.

I live in the 99 & Westpark Toll area if anyone is up for a ride sometime!

LOL, completely redesigned 4V head, cam, cylinder, pistons, gaskets, valves rings 1000 dollars. Groms are cheap as to mod.

That head looks beastly. Sucks about your Grom. I wonder if it was the wide open commuting or were you running to much advance and lean.

Too hot, caused by running WOT at 100 deg days + fat kid riding the bike=300+ temps, lol

Irony, I got my cooler in, the day my engine died

4v is cool, but add another $5-600 for pcv/wb2

Found a nice spot to mount my blue tooth speaker.
Bonus is it also has a built in USB charger that I can charge my phone from.

You have a temp gauge? If you were not running a fuel controller of some sort, that's my guess as to what happened. 14.7-15.5 on the grom is WAY too lean.

I'm averaging 11.8-13.5 now. Temps WOT hover at 300. Waiting on my oil cooler as well.
