TT 2017: JG Speedfit Kawasaki wheel change practice

As we’ve already seen this week, TT races can be won or lost in the pits so practice is crucial if you’re looking to stand on the top step. Traditionally in the Superstock category, the pit stop at the end of lap two (of the four lap race) was just for refuelling but as the level of competition has increased, more and more riders are now switching to fresh rubber as well. We popped into JG Speedfit Bournemouth Kawasaki to see how quick they can change a wheel.  


Pick up a copy of our special edition McGuinness: Ordinary bloke. Extraordinary Racer. This special from MCN, celebrates the career of one of the sport’s best-loved road racers.
