Inside GEICO Honda

View as: Slideshow | One Page
We checked in with Kristian Kibby, the Technical Director of the GEICO Honda squad, to see what they're up to this time of year. Nope, there's no rest for the crews, as they get ready for the 2013 season.

    This is sexy has h*ll! thx Guy! Kibby seems to get things dialed. Wonder how much of a difference the inhouse more Factory Honda style 250f engine compare to the ones that mitch did for them. No idea to compare HP , because i would guess there is a difference each season or maybe engine package? But quality comparison and the different aproach to certain partm orhow to setup between the pc tuned engine package and the inhouse.

    I just love geico bikes. How many parts are unobtainable through American Honda & Japan (to many nasty thoughts in my mind). Btw where did VP fuel go, did they change name to renegade or what is the deal there ?

    He did say that by now putting all their eggs in one basket, it allows them to shop in a bunch of additional places. "In turning over more stones, you have the ability to find more things." It's freed them to work with whoever they please. There are Yosh pipes and silencers, and some other Yoshimura goodies. There's help and advice from Honda, and also a bunch of companies that are much closer at hand that they work with.

    Now? I think they've been that for quite some time. Check out Honda's factory team, made up of graduates from the GEICO Honda squad.
