Aside from the addition of Suzuki, the sponsor list for H&H/RCH remains unchanged. Sycaun Casino, Bel Ray, Dodge, Loctite, and more still make up the rear fender, but expect a switch from Shift to Fox gear.
One of the biggest stories of the weekend was the switch from the standard Kayaba suspension to Showa forks on the Monster Energy Kawasaki team. The decision was made midway through last week, thanks in part to the testing done by Broc Tickle on the Pro Circuit 450 all season.
Another team to ditch the KYB suspenders was Jeff Ward Racing. The team has been working with Ohlins on their 2012 settings, but have not yet made a decision on what they will mount to Dean Wilson’s 2013 ride.
Ohlins goods are also on the front of Chizz’s Kawasaki. He stated that the feel of the bike is what they looked for all season. Speaking of Chisholm, he is a hot commodity this off season. Both JWR and RCH would like to sign him, and both offers are tempting. Considering that at Steel City the plan was to go full privateer status in 2013, these new options are much better.
Another one of the many announcements this weekend was that Cyrca will for the first time make Kawasaki replacement plastics and support the JWR team. We could have shown you a photo from the press summit, but we figured you would like this one better.
