Yesterday, I headed to the Monster Energy Kawasaki race shop in search of some parts for my well-worn Kawasaki KX450F. Knowing well that Ryan Villopoto’s mechanic Mike Williamson would read me the riot act for dragging my rear brake so badly that I cracked the rotor, I stopped to pick up some bagels on the way. A little buttering up, if you will… While I was there, I talked Mike into sitting down for an interview. As the tuner behind all of RV2’s big-bike success, Williamson has played a pivotal role in helping Villopoto make the transition into the premier division. If you’re a true fan of the sport, or even a factory mechanic hopeful, you’ll enjoy all that Mikey has to say in this 18-minute sit-down. Enjoy!
