I don't beleive these rumours about illegal parts. The top three bikes including engines were completely stripped in September and all were legal.
There is an article on this in todays MCN with interviews with Shaun Muir and Pete Jennings - they say that they had a setup problem with a lack of edge grip on the circuits used in the showdown.
Muir also puts it down to a loss of rider confidence.
