Up Close With James Stewart’s Yoshimura Suzuki

James Stewart’s factory Yoshimura Suzuki will be tuned by veteran mechanic Lee McCollum.

With Anaheim 1 only three days away, we’re starting to get just as antsy as the rest of you. A couple weeks ago, we got to visit James Stewart at his Haines City, Florida, training facility, where we got the first peek at the new team bike look for 2013. What do you think of the new look?

For 2013, team sponsors include Yoshimura R&D, American Suzuki Motor Corporation, Motorex, Dunlop, Renthal, Vortex, Enjoy MFG, Showa, Hinson Clutch Components, Renegade Fuels, Mechanix Wear, Works Connection, Twin Air, Matrix, D.I.D., Excel, NGK, and Kokosan. Mike Webb returns at the Team Manager, and Lee McCollum will wrench on James Stewart’s number 7 race bike.
