They need NEW and YOUNG blood to go forward and stick with them. It not like the rides they got have done the business over the last few years. Ok L.C may have been good for development but that seens to have dryed up at the moment and C.V may be hurt still but does well in the wet and ok when it dry. So I feel that they need to xx both riders and start with a new bike and fresh riders in 2010.

the bike is slow this year more than ever . if the bike was as fast as honda/yamaha/duke, both riders would be fighting for a podium every race. rossi/lorenzo/pedrosa are the riders in form and on best bikes. c.v and l.c dont have a chance at the moment

Since the days of Kenny Jr. the rap on Suzuki was a lack of real effort to excel. I remember Kenny complaining his suggestions had to go through middle management in Japan. You really have to wonder what they are thinking but maybe this will give them a boot up the rear.

Suz have made several strategic mistakes over the past years 1)Corp. Bureaucracy in Japan. 2)Loosing Spies to Yam, 3) Loosing Hopper, etc. Nothing against CV, but pairing the youthful drive and work ethic of J Hop with the dev skills and overall experience of LC would have given the team a better core to build upon. But the problems are far deeper than the riders. Look to Sete G's results when he left the Suz Works Team for a sat Honda, look at KR Jr.'s strugles following a Wld Chap. Look at the countless injuries to a young JH trying to produce resuls from an incapable bike. The corp suits are the problem and they don't come and go like the riders who give their flesh and blood to the sport

I belive that suziki had one of the best bikes on the grid in 2007. Perhaps the best all round bike, Duke had the top speed, yam had the accelertaion. But I think suzuki was the best all round bike. Since then its been downhill. :(

your both wrong ,its the riders and a combination of engineers ? they just cant set the thing up ,if that bike was rossis yam CV would still not be on the podium ?? or if rossi and burgess had it ,they would win races with it,period .they need two riders that want to win (and are capable of) ?? and show the current engineers the door ,the bikes an excellent base package ? as it was throughout winter testing,they have just chased their tail ever since,give it to spies and his crew and then it would be in the hunt ok

LOL!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

BULLS**T!!!

The reason Rossi and Burgess won at Honda and Yamaha is because they were with a company that not only had the engineers to do the designing but actually spent the money to pull it off. If Rossi was on the suzuki it would still be the slowest factory bike. Last time I check Rossi and Burgess don't design and bench test engines or knock up chassis in Japan. Rossi is a racer and Burgess a race engineer - they aren't designers. Suzuki isn't spending money on development so it really wouldn't matter who's in the garage.

Suzuki are crap because they wont listen to the riders and wont spend the money. Wonder when they will pull a Kawasaki and pull out and then have the left over dreggs that are managed by outsiders do better than the factory did in years.
