Kick (starting) It In Oakland

During the last practice session, James Stewart tried to ride with a set of Renthal hand guards mounted on his Yoshimura Suzuki to keep his hands warm in the cold NorCal temperatures. They lasted only one session, though, as he found them visually distracting out on the track.
At Oakland, we spotted a hump in James Stewart’s seat. To the best of our recollection, this is the first time he’s run anything but a flat seat foam.
As a “Welcome to Suzuki” gift, James Stewart was presented this custom, Yoshimura-built Suzuki Hayabusa back in November. If you’re a street-bike fan, you’ll want to check this thing out at one of the rounds.
You can purchase Eli Tomac’s oversized front brake rotor and master cylinder adapter from, but the works Nissin caliper and Brian Kranz polish job are unobtainable.
