    Thanks! The tube is from Amazon:

    Ucreative 90 Degree Elbow 4-Ply... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08CDCP27T?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

    The clamps were way too big though, so if I were to buy again I’d just buy from eBay without the clamps for half the price.

    I also added a 3D printed insert so the air filter had something more solid to clamp onto.

    as far as I'm concerned, the 73 IS our Autobahn. if we have to pay to be on it, and it's always empty....I don't see the problem lol

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    You need to find a SM track near you! It’s some of the most fun I have ever had on a bike…just don’t take a bike you can’t drop.

    I have been looking hard at a newer trials bike. I got so many logs and boulders where I am at, it only makes sense.

    I went through this dilemma a lot recently. Seems the consensus is that they’re fine to hoon around. Some parts are interchangeable with the grom, so some aftermarket stuff from the previous gens fit too. They’re carbureted so you have to be ok with tinkering with it if you’re not going to ride it frequently. I don’t think I’d commute on one and would prefer the reliability of a real Grom.


    However… If someone made a money knock off, I’d probably have one in the garage already.

    I found a couple high mileage (10k+) groms and Z125s near me for ~$2k obo. One in particular has a cracked frame. I offered the guy $1200 if it has a clean title. He probably looped it because it has other cracked lights. Might not be worth it.. but lately ive been itching for a project.

    I don't know.. we will see if he bites
