Lil Doom V1.0
Here’s how Lil Doom was when first introduced at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
While I did enjoy the overall look, I wanted to make some changes.
In the initial design, I chose to make it kick start only for a few reasons:
1. As a result of removing the electronic starter unit, I was able to shed about 10 lbs.
2. That’s how it should be!
As a result of having it be kick only, I’m constantly running the risk of the kick start lever smashing into the factory foot peg rubber. There is also a chance of the lever actually getting stuck underneath the peg too! Therefore, the only viable solution is to find some quality rear sets.
After searching the forums and doing research online, the best option for functionality and quality were the Oshmo rearsets. The shift rod sits lower along the frame versus others sets hence allowing for proper clearance.
Here’s a shot of the factory rubber location. You can see that it’s in the direct path of the lever.
