    Under braced folds up when you load it up under heavy acceleration out of a corner, over braced is too heavy for the grom to move?

    I am stoked that someone on here has some imagination and perspective with enough drive to do something other than cut shit off a perfectly good design to call it 'custom'.

    Oh boy am I keen to see how this turns out!

    I know from my Duke 390 putting down ~40 hp that it is PLENTY of power to have fun on the street, let alone with less weight, more style and importantly one hell of a fun/awesome project to keep you busy and entertained.

    0-100 ish chances are you'll be able to embarass just about any car, bar the select few with gobs of power that can actually launch it (or be willing to)

    And let's face it, on the street, thats were 90+% of the magic happens.

    Things are moving forward. Despite not looking like it, I've made a lot of progress this week.
    The motor in the Grom is ready to drop and I've methodically been labeling the wiring harness in the hopes of making things easier for myself(wishful thinking). I've actually got 3 harnesses I'm working with. The Grom, CBR250R and a wiring harness from a CB300F. The CB300 shares the same dash as the Grom and a lot of the same plug connections as the CBR250R. The plan is to use the CB300 harness as the main loom and to chop and splice the bits I need off the other 2 harnesses. Well, that's the plan anyway...





    A few more parts. Because of the Grom's underwhelming peak power performance I've had to source a different dash. The Grom dash only revs to, well, not much (I think 7K). The obvious choice would be the CB300 dash, but I like the features an aftermarket dash provides. I ending up getting a dash from Koso and the price I paid was less than I could source a CB300 dash for. It's supposed to be plug and play and even has a gear indicator. That saves me $100 alone, plus the effort of having to fit one.
    For this build I'm going to get rid of the air box and go with a cold air intake set-up(pod filter). Basically, there's not enough room to squeeze the air box in. I've started gathering an assortment of filters and velocity stacks for testing on the dyno.

    30 shot of nitrous?

    edit:
    beaten. a 30 shot might get you there with the grom motor?

    I love this thread. I'm wondering what colour you're going to finish this bike in, hopefully Black...
    I think the old cliche about horsepower and usable horsepower will definitely apply to this monster baby.
    The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

    With a short wheel base and a frame like that, I'm sure 6000 Hp should still be quite usable!

    Seriously, great build but great point about usable horsepower

    Thanks for the compliment.
    I honestly haven't given the colour much thought yet. It's quite far down on my list. I haven't even decided what body style to go with. I do like black though.
    I don't exactly know what sort of horsepower to expect after the BBK, head work and dyno tuning/timing are done. I'm thinking maybe somewhere between 30-35hp? I plan to start by using the smallest jet in the nitrous kit, which should in theory add about another 10hp.
    I reckon the bike is going to be pretty zippy getting to 100 km/hr and it's around then I'll hit it with a shot of happy juice.
    They've included some sort of screw on fill adapter in the purchase as apparently you can get these bottles filled up at the same place they fill up paint ball gun bottles.

    Damn close haha. The P plate is on the wrong side.

    The CB300 harness arrived yesterday and I got a chance to lay it down next to the CBR250 harness to compare the differences. Besides the ABS, ignition and dash plugs they are very similar.
    I was pleased to see that the CB300 harness plugs fit into both the Grom/Koso dashes and the CBR250 ECU.
    For now I'm going to transfer the switch blocks from the 250 over to the Grom because they are quite different. I'm fairly sure they'll be a fit with the 300 harness and will save a lot of time and effort.

    The 250/300 harnesses looks massive. I can feel a great deal of cursing and head aches coming my way haha. Let the fun begin.



    The 250 looking very anorexic.



    Sean'o is coming around for a visit this afternoon and he doesn't know it yet but he's going to help me drop the Grom motor out.

    You know it I'll probably get the DynoJet unit to go with the PCV.

    I haven't exactly decided yet Rich. Got something in mind?
    I was thinking I'll do a pay it forward post but I want to wait until I'm sure I wont need anymore bits first. I also don't want to fill up my build thread with people posting up about parts they want. If anyone wants any parts, send me a PM. If I don't need it and it's not broken, I'll put your name on it.

    Cheers for the hand Sean'o (Chief Supervisor/1st class welder/Lead Fabricator/Piss taking good guy)



    I was curious how much it weighed, so I popped it on the scales. 23.8kg. I lifted the 250 motor into the van and I reckon it's maybe 10kg's heavier. I'll weigh it for comparison when I get it back from 'the house of power'.



    Yeah, because two harnesses weren't enough to work with. All three laid out. I think they said to cut the red wire...or maybe it was the black.

    Hmm, I wonder.... I like the idea of an under tail exhaust.

    I wish those damn 675 engines only weighed that much!!
