I am working on finding venues for racing and/or just track day fun around here. I have a lead on a pretty good looking track in delmar IA that seems promising. Also, I plan on converting the little bike into a ninja Z 125R as I am gonna call it.
You might also contact Kansas City Karting Association in Liberty MO. They have allowed Grom/mini bikes to work into their established racing weekends and are a good group. The turnout has been very low but perhaps you can rally some Z125 aspiring racers to join you.TNT Kartway: West Quincy MO

How was the grip? The number of changes in track surface from years of repair look like it could cause issues when on the edge of adhesion.Here is the video...enjoy!! So much fun!!!https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uSzCbt9RMkY&feature=youtu.be
The grip level was surprisingly good and yes it was the stock tires...although I didn't push all too hard. I was dragging the pegs here and there though. There were a couple older sections that I really took it easy on to be safe though.How was the grip?

Yes, stock tires....They're pretty decent imo. I did monitor the pressures and they did climb a bit...I tried to keep them around 26-28 psi and never really had any issues with grip. It was a pretty warm day..ambient around 88 degrees and full Sun. The tires were good enough to no longer have chicken strips and I was grinding the pegs somewhat often .......translation...I should get off the bike further and lean it less and I can go faster!!cfaddict, looks like fun!! Were you running stock tires? I'm doing my first kart track day next month and will run the stock tires. If I like it and keep doing it, then I'll upgrade to better rubber. Just wondering how the grip with stock tires is, if you used them.
Man... thanks for posting this! Really shows how the bike works out there on the track. Have you done any mods to yours? I couldn't really tell, other than the GoPro mounts.Here is the video...enjoy!! So much fun!!!https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uSzCbt9RMkY&feature=youtu.be
