    May I ask you where did you get it from and how much does it cost?

    I've ridden a couple with exhausts changed and they were slower, so I'm not convinced that changing the exhaust is an improvement ....... Dougie has done a heap to his and it's not a huge improvement considering the amount of time, effort and coin spent.
    I'm told Ritchie has one going pretty well, so I'll keep my eye on him.

    I'm waiting for you to show me the best performing Grom around + I already have a shed full of fast mini's, so I don't feel the need for a fast Grom too.

    I think the cheapest and more efficient option would be 181cc piston, barrel and cam if you want the toque ONLY. What i also think, it could be a problem running the engine too lean. I think the Take FI controller will adjust it the whilst maintaining the same injector and throttle body.

    I found the same like you, with the 14T bike speedo is 15% out. At 100km/h on the speedo you are really doing 85km/h on the GPS...
    Sorry to so long getting back, i have been tuning a little. I put the PCV and WB2, i found i needed to go bigger with the injector as it still ran at 14.5 - 16. Now with the bigger inj its gets around 12.5 - 13.5. Still having trouble over 100 kph, diet programe next

    Only problem is the information is all poor quality, with false claims of gains that are just not real in my opinion.

    I agree, modifying a Grom engine with a bbk and make it work as it should seemesly s not that easy. I'm just happy to modify little things like suspension and cosmetics whilst keeping in mind it's limitations when it comes to top speed and power.

    I haven't used yet, we might have to organise a get together and compare, what do you reckon? Just installed it yesterday, I'm glad the hump is gone, so far so good!
