In spite of the production rules that the AMA strictly enforces, each team still has their own way of doing things, and when looking closely at each factory bike in the pits that couldn’t be more apparent. We’ve already shown you a handful of bikes—if you’ve missed the previous posts, click the links above—and today we’re bringing you the factory race machines of Davi Millsaps, Wil Hahn, Tyler Bowers, and Josh Hansen. But while all four bikes are Kawasaki, they each have their own look and unobtainable equipment that makes them unique.
A quick polish to the header on the Monster Energy Kawasaki machines gives the Pro Circuit exhaust a unique look. It’s also this attention to detail that separate a factory machine from a standard one.
All the factory teams have some sort of data acquisition technology, and Monster Energy Kawasaki is no different. This little black box can be found on the bikes of Millsaps and Hahn.
Tyler Bowers is one of the newest additions to the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team. Oliver “Olly” Stone spins the wrenches on the 911 machine.
All the Pro Circuit riders use the same Showa suspension components with their own specific settings. Tyler Bowers likes his suspension very stiff.
This small custom coolant catch tank recycles radiator coolant, which in turn helps to better cool the bike since coolant isn’t lost.
Josh Hansen is receiving support from Kawasaki, but running out of his own Motosport Outlet rig.
Hansen prefers the feel of the Showa SFF fork, and chooses to run that rather than the standard fork found on the KX250F.
Numerous parts on Hansen’s bike are coated to add to the aesthetic factor of the bike.
