Recently, we told you about Royal Enfield’s partnership with the BUILD Moto Mentor Program (BUILD). BUILD aims to teach high school students professional and social skills related to motorcycles and motorcycling.
BUILD is a non-profit educational organization helping high school students develop trade and technical skills. Participants in the program participate in various trades like welding, fabrication, design, mechanical repair, and machining. Each student pairs with a bike building mentor during the program to learn these skills.

Now, Dynojet has announced that it too is joining the BUILD program. Dynojet is donating Power Commander V tuning devices to 14 different BUILD teams. The devices will go to 13 teams building a Royal Enfield Classic 500 and an all-girl team that is building a Harley-Davidson Street 500.
During the six-month program, the students will learn trade skills, problem-solving and the power of teamwork. Working with just a chassis, working motor and core parts, the team will build a bike from scratch. The finished product will be raced in the American Flat Track motorcycle series.
Dynojet’s Troy Hammond talked about the company’s participation in the program:
“We want BUILD Moto and similar programs to flourish. This is such a unique industry, and we want students to experience the excitement that comes with power sports and the satisfaction of building something from just parts.”
Congratulations and thanks to Dynojet for taking the initiative to teach life skills and help develop a new generation of motorcyclists.
