CHECKERED FLAG: HONDA CRF CARBON FIBER TANK COVER
A few months ago we introduced our carbon fiber fuel tank cover for the 2017-2018 Honda CRF450R and 2018 Honda CRF250R. This statement piece replaces the flimsy, inexpensive looking plastic OEM/stock cover. Made from 100% carbon fiber, the cover is sturdy and lightweight. It also comes with a titanium bolt and drilled aluminum washer. Well, folks, we’ve stepped up our game even more with a run of what we’re calling the “Honda Checkered Carbon Fiber Tank Cover.” Carbon fiber experts refer to this wide-weave material as “textured.” We call it beautiful!

WELCOME TO THE TEAM JUSTIN BOGLE!
Justin Bogle had a breakout summer as part of the RCH Racing Suzuki squad, winning a moto at Thunder Valley, and then capturing his first 450 outdoor overall at Budds Creek. The Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team is elated to welcome the Oklahoma native to the program. Here’s a look at Bogle’s #19 machine. You can actually buy a very close rendition of these graphics on our website (click here).
Justin Bogle has spent the past two weeks testing at the top secret JGRMX facility in North Carolina. Bogle looked sharp and focused right out of the gate. Justin will spend the bulk of his time at Ricky Carmichael’s GOAT Farm in Florida, while also traveling to JGRMX in North Carolina for test sessions.
Take a look at the metal grate behind the Risk Racing starting gate. Justin Bogle gets the perfect amount of traction during a practice start. Word is that these starting pads will be used for the Monster Energy Cup and beyond. And speaking of the Monster Energy Cup, Justin Bogle is scheduled to race the event in just over two weeks.

RACE TEAM NEWS: TESTING WITH FACTORY SUZUKI
The past two weeks have been busy. Suzuki Motor Corporation of America’s (SMAI) MX Support Manager, Chris Wheeler, along with Suzuki of Japan’s engine and chassis engineers, have been instrumental in helping the JGRMX team get prepared for the upcoming season. Support staff from Showa and Yoshimura have also helped out in a big way. The level of support has been unbelievable. Here, the crew watches as Weston Peick nails a practice start.
The new Supercross track was completed on Sunday, September 17th, and the riders started pounding laps the very next day. Weston Peick has basically lived at the JGRMX testing facility since. Here, he communicates with suspension techs, mechanics and engineers.
Got parts? Factory Suzuki sure does! There are options aplenty for the riders to try out. Mitchell Key (white hat), Yuzo from Yoshimura and Dean Baker (right) dig through boxes of clutch parts.
Motocross has gone digital! A slew of experts were busy writing reports, adjusting map settings, analyzing graph charts, and staying on top of emails.
This is the end result – Weston Peick railing a rut on his way up to a rhythm section. So far, so good…and it’s only September! Needless to say, the Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team is looking forward to the future.
