About BWR Engines
In 2007 Brian White founded his performance shop, BWR (Brian White Racing) after suffering a season ending wrist injury. White began to further explore the mechanics of the dirt bikes he passionately loved to race. White started small, working on his brother’s dirt bikes studying the suspension. After doing modifications, White put them to the challenge on the track with extensive testing. White came up with custom suspension packages catered to rider style, skill level, and track conditions. From there White started to pull apart the motor, and found a lot of parts he could make more efficient. Through trial and error, countless hours on the dyno, and vicious track testing White put together several engine packages that maintain smoothness, and ride ability while seriously improving peak horsepower, and torque. The healthy engines and total chassis and suspension setup found on BWR’s race bikes make them a serious contender with the elite of the sport.
