Has any one tried any tricks yet? I can only get it to come up in first but I have to pull hard on the bars. Stoppies are easy but after doing one my brakes make a squealing noise for a few minutes. Rolling burnouts are kind of tricky because the front tire wants to lock and slide sometimes. I'm going to try and ski beside it tomorrow if I can find my steel bottom shoes. I don't think the grom trick videos were made on stock bikes.

yea, the add plays that up.. unless you're an experienced rider (which i don't know if you are or not) I wouldn't get into wheelies & Stoppies.

have you tried clutching it up? bounce the front end a little and on the upstroke flick the clutch and gas it, I can usually stand anything up like that. Just keep the rear brake covered and you will be fine.

super heavy! i'm actually disappointed at how heavy the Grom is. it weighs something like 5lbs less than my KTM525smr :eek:
You're just weak :D

Kidding.

It's definitely not a light bike, nor is it that heavy, i believe it's around 250 LBS. I bet some people who are into weight lifting can lift the grom for a few seconds at a time.

so clutch dump and a bounce is what might get you started for a wheelie.

surprised at hearing how the front is heavy to get on up though.
