Cinspiracy is nonsence, Why would a company like Yamaha spend so much money on racing and try to nobble their own rider, but whoever said Ben is not trying should pull their head in.

We're done with Yamaha.

It's obvious they are sabotaging Spies's bike even if he he doesn't want to say so.
I challenge anyone in the history of motorcycle racing to find a factory bike that has had this many problems in a single season. Each time risking Spies's life and career.

And somehow Lorenzo's bike is 100% perfect.

Even when Spies' bike doesn't completely fail you can see it doesn't handle well compared to JLo's bike that looks like it's on rails.

My family and I are boycotting Yamaha until Lin Jarvis is fired.

Lin Jarvis is the one who wanted Spies out so Rossi could come back. This has been in the works since before the season began.
