Video: Justin Brayton´s JGR YZ450F

8 posts in this topic

I noticed something that I thought was kinda odd, at about 3:12. Look at the white throttle grip. Now, far be it for me to argue with someone as fast as Justin Brayton, or his mechanic, but isn't that throttle grip on "wrong"? I thought your palms rode on the smooth portion of the grip, and the waffle part was kinda down more where your fingertips/1st joint would be???? :thumbsup:

You are right, and that is the position the grip would be in when he is riding with the throttle turned. Pros need to set their bikes up for near WOT since that is how they spend most of their time :lol:

Anyone else think the powered bike stand was OVERKILL??? Seems that Showa must have some serious majic in the forks department, as everyone runs them even if the stock ones are KYB.

JGR showa forks aren't the same as anything showa offers to the public or race teams. For JGR it is an economical way to build works forks that offered them some tunibility that wasn't available otherwise. Those are one off forks that only JGR builds.
