New swing arm and shock is a whole new riding experience. The swing arm is adjustable in height and is a bit longer then the original one, so you have a better balance on the bike, but you also need a new chain.
Put some 'socks' on my levelers which is a nice shifting and breaking experience.
Pictures below..







..stay tuned :motorcycle3_smilie:

I decided to bring all the red parts to the painter tomorrow and turn them into black. Swing arm, levelers etc.. on saturday i will pick up those parts:



Basically turning the grom into a proper Mini Ducati - i don't really like the different types of red on the bike. Needs to he be all the same color, so black is the easiest thing to do.
For the exhaust - i have the exact same one here.. so i will cut them up and make it 2 exhausts pipes on each side. The 2 additional pipes will be 'dumb' and not actually connected to the air flow. I want to keep the current sound. Then the grom/msx should be perfect in my opinion :)
I will keep you posted!

Looking good! That is one sexy ass grom. the color scheme makes it stand out so much I'm sure you get a fair share of turned heads when you ride around town. What else do you have planned?

That looks really good but I would have gone to a wide tire kit on the back, max at 5-6" across and that would have looked cool. It is cool now but a little more meat is needed in the back.

Great idea! Will get bigger wheels and the wide tire kit. Thanks for the tip! ;)
