Yeah, I'm waiting for Lisa to get done thrashing hers before I buy it and give the bike the love it really needs.

I sat on a grom at moto gp and loved it. I think it just got to top of my next bike list. It will satisfy my desire to ride like an absolute maniac on my way to work without the risk factor that the KTM brings.

I was thinking about a CBR250 before that, but don't want something that looks like a sportbike since it brings unneeded attention.

The grom's pegs looked awful low though, I wonder if anyone will sell longer suspension for it like they do DRZ110's and the like.

you forgot stalling it in traffic and then trying to kick it over.arent bikes supposed to stutter when you need to switch to reserve. Mine always just died in the middle of traffic. Then id have to duck walk it to the curb . And kick it multiple times. Usually when its very hot or raining.

Some moron at Honda decided that if they hooked the fuel pump relay up to the CDI, then the fuel pump would shut off when the bike was off, presumably in a crash. Unfortunately, if the motor doesn't fire, the pump won't run and therefore no gas can get to the carb to fire the motor to run the pump. Same thing happens when it runs out of gas, if you aren't going 45mph where the motor turns over fast enough to fake the CDI into thinking it's running before it putters to a stop, it won't let the pump run, the carbs stay dry until you run a jumper to the pump. I spliced in a jumper just so the damn thing would start in the spring when the carbs dried out from evaporated gas.


My 350 is my 1st EFI bike, kick and e-start, the main reason I bought an 11 model, the newer units are kickless unless you get the EXC or W model XCF. A dead battery and no kicker in the woods sucks, been there done that with the 950 at Perry
