It’s Friday, and we’ve saved arguably one of the coolest looking bikes in the pits for the final installment of Inside Look At Trickness. Justin Barcia’s AutoTrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha YZ450F is completely purpose built for the new team rider. Everything from the suspension, to the engine, to the footpegs and subframe are custom made for Barcia. Before his bike hit the Anaheim dirt last weekend, we got to spend some time with it.
FMF has been a long-time support of JGRMX since the beginning, and they continue to provide exhaust systems for Barcia and his teammate Weston Peick.
JGRMX runs a heat shield on the gas tank to keep the fuel safe from the hot shock. In this photo, the adjustable subframe bracket is also visible. The height of the subframe on Barcia’s bike can be fine-tuned by screwing in the bracket.
The team machines a lot of the parts for the bike in-house, and these footpegs were created in their machine shop. The team also runs covers over the footpeg brackets to keep dirt and debris out, allowing the pegs to move freely and not get stuck in the upward position.
Many teams are running these sensors on the header pipes of their bikes, and JGRMX is no different. You can also see the trick carbon fiber guard provided by FMF.
Rather than a carbon fiber chain guide like most teams run, JGRMX elects to build their own. This one is made out of a durable plastic material that resists wear better than the stock rubber guide.
GET data acquisition and ignition mapping equipment abounds on Barcia’s bike. This adjustment knob is clearly visible behind the upper triple clamp.
