- Most aspects of the bike not stock Kawasaki KX250F, Shawn reports as “KHI, Same as Kawasaki Factory Racing.” But Shawn said, “This year the bike is very stock. This year the bike is a better platform this year than it has been in past years.”
- The main item made to Justin’s specification is the custom seat cut and cover shown above. Initially a hand-made collaboration by Justin, his brother Josh and Shawn, it was ultimately custom-made to their specification by Guts Racing. Justin touted the benefits: “It helps me a lot on starts, but doesn’t mess with me too much on the track”.
Master cylinders aree KHI “Factory Equipment.” Shawn proudly shows off the rear master cylinder as especially exotic, containing titanium internal components custom-machined to Pro Circuit specification.
