Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. I am Paul from Tyga Performance and we are based in Thailand making aftermarket motorcycle parts for niche and cool models for the last 15 years. We were involved with making parts for the Grom from the start (actually before the launch when it was still top secret) and partnered with Ohlins and some other well known companies developing components for this cool bike. Tyga Performance is managed by me and Matt who are both from the UK and we only offer quality products, mostly comprising carbon, CNC and exhaust components. We will also be offering the full parts book of Honda parts at competitive prices. We look forward to serving members needs here and having a lot of fun working with the Grom

Hey Paul, The Honda grom / MSX125 is popular in Thailand isn't it? Judging from the pictures I have seen over the internet enough MSX125 owners already got a lot of modifications done. One I am interested in is the headlamp upgrade with the Projector lens in it. DO you have any pictures of installation to show us how easy or difficult it is? Thanks in advance :)

Thanks for the welcome. Ashamed to say can't read Thai but I'm pretty good at English ;) so should be no issues communicating with forum members. and we have a Thai staff to help for any translations.

On the headlight, we stock it as a replacement for accident damage so I am not exactly sure how easy it is to modify a US spec bike and install one. Hopefully, someone will give me feedback.

On the bike itself, it is great fun. You can see some of the things we have done with it on my blog on MSX125 Exploded Parts Manual Diagrams. I'll be doing some updates today.

Welcome to the boards paul, hopefully when we start getting our bikes, maybe we can start doing some group buy deals. :)
Indeed i can see quite a few group buys happening even group buys of the same thing happening a few times. Will be cool to see how good of a group buy price we can get from Tyga or any other vendor willing to deal with it.

We'd be happy to take group buys. One big saving you can make is on international shipping cost as wella s of course getting the parts cheaper to start with.

I would like to see any videos or pictures of the MSX 125 with the projector headlights on.

I don't see why they wouldn't HID kits have been around for a while now.

Yes, if you can hang on until we get ours into production it will be worth the wait. We are working on a CF seat cover and that will be ready in a week or two. The CF under cowl is next. Not wishing to rubbish other people's efforts but be careful when ordering composite parts made in Thailand because a lot of it is simply not export quality. We import our resin from France and is a specially formulated epoxy which is both strong and flexible. The local epoxies are not as strong. That said, I don't know any other aftermarket companies using even that. They nearly all use brittle and weak polyester because it costs 25% of the price. So it ends up being a lot thicker, heavier and weaker than a comparative epoxy part. if you sniff it and it smells a bit like cats piss then it is most probably polyester. Epoxy doesn't really smell or give off nasty styrene gases. The only thing going for polyester is price, hence why all the others that I have come across here use it so just bear that in mind. H2C stock shape fenders and huggers are the exception to this and that's why we stock them. Very good materials, laminating and finish.

Our business is, and has always been, 99% export so we understand what you guys expect and want you to be pleasantly surprised when you receive our products.

Didn't know that about resin and how big those differences can be, will be looking out for that stuff and avoiding it, I guess one good route is to buy from a vendor like you guys that sell a quality product and are involved with the community.

I'd like to see what products have this poor quality resin.
