Yoshimura Suzuki's James Stewart to miss remaining Supercross rounds



The following is an industry press release from Yoshimura Suzuki...

Stewart to focus on recuperation and preparation for outdoor motocross season

Chino, CA (April 21, 2016) – Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s James Stewart will sit out the final three rounds of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross season to focus on preparing for the start of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, which kicks off on Saturday, May 21 at the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, Calif.

“James has a hairline fracture in his ankle and he aggravated his back injury from his Daytona crash last week in St. Louis,” said Yoshimura Suzuki team manager Mike Webb. “Clearly, he needs time to heal up and get ready for Hangtown.”

Stewart has been battling injury most of the Supercross season. Despite his setbacks he’s shown flashes of his characteristic speed. Stewart said even though everything in him wants to be at the final Supercross rounds, he recognizes it’s the best decision.

“I want to be out there racing,” Stewart explained. “My fans and sponsors are important to me, but ultimately I need to focus on getting completely healed up and be solid and ready to go the next time I roll up to the starting gate at Hangtown.”

That's the looooooooooong version.  The short version is Stewart needs some time to tidy up his resume and start knocking on some doors. 

So will he take this time to work off that gunt and go classic checkers or wreckers at Hangtown?

Looks like you've been missing a lot of racing lately James




I wouldn't say I've been missing it Bob.

      Hey guys, 
      I've used this forum as a "guest" for awhile now and I thought I'd share my build now that it's all coming together.  The primary purpose of this project is to help me train for roadracing my 2009 R1 at lower speeds as well as giving me a cheap alternative to racing the big bike. 
      Here's what she looked like when I picked it up from a local shop.  Paid $800 cash for the bike as you see it with 17' rims, FMF pipe, EBC 250mm front rotor and clip on handle bars.

      Fits PERFECT!

      Shake down run at the Herrin Compound last summer:

      As she sits today:

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator http://www.rickystator.com/product/stators/yamaha/yamaha-yz450f-35-watt-lighting-stator-assembly-06-09 work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      KTM has held a unique record in 250SX since 2011—it’s the only brand to have won in every season. Kawasaki did not win in '15, Honda did not win in '17 (and so far, it has not done so this season), Yamaha had no wins in '13, and Suzuki did not have any in '11 nor between 2014-'17, while Husqvarna did not get any wins between '11 and '15. This consistency also yielded KTM's 40th victory in the 125/250 supercross classes, thanks to Jordon Smith's first win in 2018 at last Saturday night's Daytona SX. The Austrian KTM got its first triumph in small-bore supercross back in 2001, with the South African Grant Langston. The most successful KTM winner is Marvin Musquin, who won 11 times. So far, KTM has collected 22 wins in the West Region, while Smith's win was KTM's 18th victory in the East Region. KTM also took its second Daytona victory; Musquin got the first one in '15.

      Have an old book sitting on the shelf and thought I up load some picts.  Waiting for the smoker to do its thing so have some time to kill.  
      I got this from my so called stepdad, he had a type setting company and I am not sure how/why he acquired it.  I will ask him next time I see him.  Not sure if he did any editing, or it was just a gift to him.  I believe this was done for a Italian mfg, not sure.  Anyway, some cool picts bring back mems.  Excuse the camera it is not the best, most are painful to look at so will only upload a few.
