i have an acquaintance that is a 3d design and cnc shop. He wants to try making some parts for the grom and is borrowing mine to measure and test-fit :) i'm pretty excited since maybe we will have some other shiny parts available soon

definitely going after race rearsets (without passenger pegs but with adjustability) and clipons/top triple. maybe sliders, maybe fork tricks (spacers, emulators, i don't know). basically however motivated he gets with it over the next couple weeks. the guy's son races xr100s with me, so he's no stranger to the mini/race scene

How about some grom specific hubs we can lace up?
i'll ask, but not sure what the point would be? to me spokes=bad
though i guess if he made hubs before for something, it may be a possibility for you dirt riders

glad to hear the Grom as a race bike movement is progressing well. @mad8 what sort of regs do these Grom spec series have?

None yet, but rearsets will definitely be allowed. If its like nsr and xr spec it will be stock engine and exhaust and stock suspension outers (springs and emulators allowed).

the word is the following:
triples (with rake angle options potentially)
clipons
rearsets
preload adjustable fork caps
emulators and if he can get them to work/fit
crash protection maybe (case sliders?)
for hubs he would need enough interest to justify the design time

Really excited to see what he comes up with. Be sure to post pictures of the parts once they are complete both on and off the Grom. If people like the parts enough do you think he would be up for selling some to his fellow Grom Forum members?

i think that was the general idea (i doubt he would spend the time and materials just to screw around). it will probably be a while before we actually see anything (including my grom back) though :(

Damn nice to have some one cut those out for you! ;)
well, i am lending him a bike to prototype against and he will probably be selling them so it's not like it's free ;)

update from the shop

triples and preloaders are designed and being fabbed this week. Clipons are next week

so very soon we will have adjustable? and definitely cool triples for non-handlebar applications
