^ Agreed, that thing has to be flapping around in the breeze by now. I didn't make it 80 miles before my chains were too loose.
If you're feeling anal it's not a bad idea to buy a new clutch cover gasket and oil screen and replace the oil screen. The factory uses inspection paint on the bolts in the engine and that paint chips off and clogs the screen. Probably a few larger chips of metal from the gears as well.
It's pretty common for these screens to be roughly 1/3 clogged just after break-in. So while it won't hurt anything to use 2/3 of your oil screen, it's even better to use the whole thing. While you have it in your hand marvel at the fact that Honda doesn't equip the Grom with anything more than that dinky screen.
A little late for tbswope but for others reading this thread prepping for the first service I would do it all sooner. We've already touched on the chain, it stretches... a lot. Check it every time you go for a ride. I also recommend dropping the oil and replacing the filter between 100-200 miles. My bike got new oil (no filter) at 18 miles and I still found plenty of sparkles at 200 miles. No reason to let that circulate for another 400 miles.
K&N has had bad press with oil filters literally falling apart. Consider yourself warned. (No judgement here though, I'm personally working my way through my stash to get to my OEMs for the longer maintenance periods)
Dropped a gear... ...still here
