thats a really good price.

got the tripage rear light on, crazy bright, 12 diff. flasher sequences.

thought i had to scavenge a connector off of the motodynamics kit, cuz the 1st owner of the bike lost the OE harness when he put on a fender elim. so i have to hold of on selling the motodynamics kit till i get another connector.......grrrr

i bought license plate bolt LEDs, the bolt dia is too big for the plate and FE, so i got return it and figure another way....grrrr

but i did clean the bike up, got rained on on the way home wed. grrrr

I will not try and convince you. You can keep putting oil to save some change lol

Why not? If you have good evidence, such as lab tested oil or a an engine builder that said it was then id like to hear it. On something like oil just stating it is horrible for bikes means nothing. Not to mention it's a 125cc low compression 8 hp that realistically needs it's oil changed every 500-100 miles because it doesn't have a good filter.

500-1000 is a bit much, this is a 3rd world motor, it's built to last a long time w/ little to no maintenance. The spinner filter recommended cleaning is at 7500mi

No I just wanted to know if it was your opinion or you had actual evidence. Since it's only your opinion I'll go off my 15k miles in my ninja 500 with no problems.

Been riding the grom last couple of days but this morning took the ninja 500 to work and holy it feels so fast! I twist the throttle and it actually accelerates! It was weird.

Also 5 days till the next grom challenge!

Another reason the oil choice doesn't matter. It was designed to run forever on the cheapest stuff Vietnam can provide.

Recommended oil change interval is 2500. Mine will be raced and with such little oil I don't mind taking 10 minutes out of my day to change the oil every 2-3 months or 500-1000 miles.


P.s. My friend is an amsoil dealer, so I'd rather give my money to him instead of Walmart and at $9 an oil change then who cares. I honestly wanted to know if you had a reason or just it's cheap so it must suck.
