Lots of Precision Concepts/Kawasaki race team sponsors are featured on Zach’s machine and the bike is actually owned by former team member Justin Seeds. Zach won the Two-Stroke World Championship last year and will be defending his title this weekend on this specially built KX250.

L.A.SLEEVE, Pro Circuit, and Boyesen provided some much needed performance upgrades.

The entire front-end is off a 2019 KX450 and held on by Xtrig clamps. Naturally the suspension internals are all handled by Precision Concepts.

That cylinder might look stock from the outside but the crew at L.A.SLEEVE has worked their magic on the inside. Can you say KX300 ?

The wheels are designed to handle all types of abuse. The hubs are Talon and the rims are Excel A60 built by the crew at Dubya USA. Galfer provides the stopping power and Maxxis provides the traction.

Ryan Abbatoye from Abbatoye Designs does all the team graphics and made a kit for the KX250 that gives it that factory race team feel.

Don’t worry there will be a full write up on this machine in an upcoming issue of our printed magazine.
