Noticed tonight and in various pics that Brayton has a hydraulic clutch on his bike, I don't recall seeing this in any pre season pics/videos. Is he on a Factory bike whereas Friese and Stewart are on MCR builds? From what I remember it's a big deal to have a hydraulic clutch on a Honda because it changes so many internal components.

I think he said he had Showa factory suspension and HRC build motor in his MCR bike all offseason races he has done.

Not sure about the rest of the MCR team this year but I know last year Brayton specifically was on an MCR bike but with extra support from factory Honda, much like the deal Rocky Mountain KTM has with factory KTM

From my understanding Brayton just had a factory A-kit & a frt. brake caliper as the only factory Honda HRC support.
Aren't the RM KTM's leased factory bikes ?

All 3 guys have top notch equipment. Honda stepped up their support

They’re receiving more help from HRC this year. Malcolm and Brayton have some extra goodies like hydraulic clutches and works hubs. I know that Chad from XPR had to modify the cases himself to install the HRC hydro.
