We are now four days into this week, and as you’ve probably noticed, we’re bringing you a gallery of beautifully prepped factory machines each day. Today, feast your eyes on the Factory Honda bikes of Cole Seely and GEICO Honda’s Malcolm Stewart. Both bikes are prepped and set up specifically for the rider, and both have their own nuances.

What we wouldn’t give to get our hands on some Factory Honda titanium footpegs… These pegs are machined from titanium, and are rumored to cost several thousand dollars each.

Cole Seely is the lone Factory Honda rider to still be running a works Showa fork. Both Trey Canard and Eli Tomac have made the switch to KYB suspension.

Of course the Factory Honda machines are bristling with trick electronic components. We spotted this “mystery” box mounted on Seely’s bikes. Our guess would be that it has to do with data acquisition.

This is the first season for Malcolm Stewart aboard the GEICO Honda, and for the most part, his bike is very similar to his teammates’ rides.

In order to help pass sound and reduce excess noise, many teams—including GEICO Honda—put sound dampening white foam on the side panels behind the mufflers.

Much like most teams in the pits, GEICO Honda has a dedicated engine builder that provides all the riders the same spec engine. From there, adjustments are made with ignition mapping and gearing.
