Motocross Info on Stewarts big changes, you heard it here first

Recommended Posts

James skipping on the outdoors because he is tired of the Yamaha and hates it. He's creating his own team and is going to be riding either a Honda or a Suzuki, has one of each at his house now to test on and decide which he likes better.

This info comes straight from stewart himself. My sis is best friends with him and has been for years. She found out and told me.

Good, I hope he gets himself an awesome bike and he comes back strong. Guess the Yamaha just wasn't working out for him...

I hope he picks the Honda.

where is this information being found at?

+1. Sound like just another JS rumor being circulated around the boards so Stewart can be justified for not running the outdoors.

Doesn't matter.

According to some wack-job preacher and the bill boards that spew his cr@p, the world ends tomorrow so we'll never know about JS for sure.......

Bummer.

On the slim chance the world doesn't end tomorrow, it'll be interesting to see if said JS rumor is true.

Nice to have a fresh excuse for him though......"it's a new bike and we don't have it set up right yet...."

my guess is if you seen a suzuki there it was malcoms since he rides one and a honda ? IF james is seen rideing a suzuki or a honda while under contract with yamaha i do not think that would go to well .

he doesn't need to change bikes for better results , he need's to change the way he think's when he is racing . he does fine in the heat races when the heat is off

if what you say is true he could be testing kawi because on bubbas world he rode a klx140 (insert sarcasm font) or he could ride sore ballz kawi 450 ???

but really if he goes anywhere he isnt going where there is a TOP paid guy, because the companys that think they have a top paid guy are not going to toss in the money for another one because they allready think their guy is gonna win,

he will prolly say put. not a lot of money floating around this year

My only question is when did Nike change there slogan from JUST DO IT to Just DO NOT DO IT TILL EVERYTHING IS PERFECT and since the 2012 bikes will be comeing out soon then he can start all over again . Or he could do like Mcgrath did and ride a older bike ? The reality of it had it not been for a few mistakes this past season he would have won the series i think . and then there would have been no issues with the bike . What i do not like is the way he talks His #1 plate He threw the season away . the way i see it that 2012 # 1 plate is just as much mine as anyone elses only thing i need to do is figure out a few things like how to start my own team and get my pro card and then well i would have to win a few races :smirk:

My opinion:

Honda:

Wouldn't work IMO. They already have Canard/Reed/KW14 which is 3 of the top six riders. Could they go for Stewart and have 4 of the top 6? Also Honda alreday has Factory Honda, Gieco, two-two, and TLD. Could they support another team? I doubt it..

Suzuki:

Also wouldn't work IMO. We all know Stewart is Mr. Money $$$ man and would likely need some fininical support from the factory he chooses. We also know Suzuki is in the middle of a fininical crunch. Wouldn't work cause of $$ IMO.

Kawi:

Bad falling out when Stewart left and they already have RV2.

IMO the only place for James is Yamaha or KTM. Of coarse I know nothing and this is me just speculating. Also thought Stewart had a two year contract through 2012.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.

      Hi Guys ,
      I'm in Australia and i am going to stream RBSR online , Red Bull site says start is 11:30 AEST ( Australian eastern standard time ) on the 20th Saturday
      which i don't think is correct . if it is on the 20th of Oct in the U.S at 1:30pm (racing must be about 4-5 pm) start on Saturday and Australia being 17 hours ahead wouldn't that make it a Sunday the 21st broadcast ?

      Growing up, seeing motovans at the track was possibly one of the coolest things.. while I was sleeping in my singlecab pickup. But hey, at the time, in highschool, my truck was cooler than some van. Now at this "age" 24... a van is quite a dang good idea, so I started looking. After a few facebook pots, a buddy of mine knew someone who had a 2001 E350 Passenger van sitting, and would get me a price. he told me it needed a radiator, and the spark plug blew out of cylinder 4 (common 5.4 triton issue). A few days go by, and he calls saying I can have it for FREE! they just needed it gone! So, I go out there with a friend of mine who has a 30ft gooseneck, and some starting fluid to make sure I don't get in too deep... we cant get it to fire without starting fluid, and ruled it out to a fuel pump. We pull the van on the trailer, stop by the parts store, and are headed home.


      The van was sitting stationary for 4 years... and smelled like it. but we'll get back there.. We dropped the tank, having to cut one of the tank straps and emptied the 4 year old fuel, put a new fuel pump in it, about 5 gallons of premium race fuel (fast and furious), and she fired up.  Next was the spark plug issue, I tapped the threads, and installed a helicoil along with new plug and coil pack, and we were good. Later I replaced the radiator after flushing the coolant system.

      The next day, we pulled out everything behind the first row bench seats, to include the headliner, rear AC duct, and side panels. Had to cut out the old seat belt mounts, and reinstalled the last bench where the first bench originally resided, since it was longer, but a few inches back to have optimal leg room. Then came the wall install... after lots of measuring once and cutting twice... I got it all figured out, and had the wall installed, then yellow stuffed "expanding foam" around all sides to ensure I wouldn't have fuel fumes in the cab. Finally I installed some flooring, just to give the bare metal some protection.
       
      After that, I was king of burned out on the van, before I even used it. She sat in my driveway for months before I was ticketed for having an unregistered vehicle parked outside.. gotta love florida.. I posted it forsale for a few days, then decided I would getRdone.

      So, off to the DMV, registered, and custom plates reading "MOTOVAN". Picked up a heavy duty cargo lock, fuel treatment, tons of black ice "little trees", and some R-134 to recharge the AC. She was making her first trip to the track that weekend!

      We changed the oil, 1,000 miles and 3 years overdue... only 2qts came out.. and sea foamed the green monster. After driving all over town, I parked in the driveway for a second, only to try to move it, and nothing on start up... not even after a jump.. so back to the parts store for a starter. After one of the worst starter jobs ever, she was cranking again. I figured we were problem free... but not before a brake line failed, and had to replace that guy, in order to take her to the track in 2 days!

      Finally! we were all clear, and we loaded three bikes into the van, and we were off! Two bikes is preferred.. but three worked, juts had to put most of the gear in the cab. Was a great day of riding, before a buddy crashed and ended the day with a concussion and a few compressed vertebrae..

      The van made another trip out this past weekend, and developed a new misfire, that ill be taking care of this week, and rechargeing the whole AC system since ill be sleeping in it this weekend for my first race in years!

      I will add some photos off my phone in a bit, until then, here is my youtube channel I created for the motovan!

      2019 Supercross season is near. Your "flavor fave" just took the MEC after being waved bye for the win.
      Same bet as last year..... $100 max customized jersey of your choice. First come first serve, but your ass BETTER pay up as others have to Mongo.
      I'm only taking the first "real" bet that approves my wager.... Tomac vs. the field 2019 SUPERCROSS. . He wins, you win. He looses, I win...... Who is the first taker? Anybody have the testicular fortitude?
