Jarvis wouldnt be concerned about a crt, satellite honda or even smiths bikes only rossi, jorge and crutchlows bikes. Each have 2 bikes for a race weekend.

They may have only 1 rider, but every rider has 2 bikes.

4 Factory Yamahas
4 Tech3 Yamahas
2 LCR Hondas
2 Cardion Bikes

And as hrc2627 said Jarvis wont consider the Hondas or the CRT's to be his (ours) bikes.

So this is when the haters come out and start bagging if the Yamaha's don't do well if they suffer bike problem,
I'm sure they will be all cleaned up and ready to go however.
I still expect to see both factory M1s on the podium this weekend

re: "I still expect to see both factory M1s on the podium this weekend"

my call....? it'll either be 2 hondas with 1 yam bringing up the rear...? or an all honda shut out...? 1200 metres will not suffer fools or those lacking million dollar gearboxes, but lets see.

The issue isn't the water, it's the combination of that and fire retardent powder which will get everywhere.
Tools, any computers/laptops left in the garage etc

Hopefully yamaha doesnt plan on playing favorites and sabotage a rider like they may have done to spies, cause the fans want racing not mysterious bike problems for a competitive rider.

Electronics aside, using water in an enviroment where there is likely to be liquid fuel isn't real smart. and as RickyP mentioned, SDry powder is a nightmare to clean up and even worsr when its been soaked, turnes into a paste, that gums up everything.
I'm sure that all their data is backed up and obtainable for other machines. Fortunate thing is no-one was hurt.
