“Maybe a test or something. I don't know,” replied Stoner. “Just to enjoy this circuit on any bike will be enough... I'm sure I'll sort a Honda CBR1000. That will be more than enough for me here!”
Turning specifically to his ankle injury, Stoner revealed it is actually worse than when he first returned to MotoGP action two weeks' ago.
“The ankle is definitely worse than when I first came back in Japan. I'm having a lot more trouble day to day just getting around at all, but I don't think it will affect me on the bike,” he declared.
“The biggest issue I've been having on the bike is flexibility in the ankle and fortunately there are not too many critical right hand corners here. So it shouldn't play too big a part.
“The main fitness problem I'm having is just endurance. I struggled in Japan and we weren't able to see how much we'd improved by Malaysia.
“But it shouldn't be too hot here. So if we can get the bike set-up and ride like we have in the past things could go smoother in the last two races.”
Stoner also spoke of his pride at having the corner named after him.
“I've had a lot of fun around this track. When I first started riding here I'd say turn three was one of my least favourite turns,” he revealed. “The wind plays a big part there and can really catch you off-guard and it's a very quick corner. You never want to go down there.
“Over the years we learnt how to overcome a lot of the issues there and now it's got to be one of my favourite turns. It's very quick. I'm able to ride how I enjoy riding and to have it named after me was something very, very special. I really appreciate it and it's a great honour for me.”
The 27-year-old will retire after the Valencia season finale on November 11. With his Indianapolis injuries ending his title hopes, Stoner is on course to finish third in the championship.
Prior to his 2007 Australian MotoGP victory, Stoner had only taken one podium from his six previous appearances and has often stressed that in terms of track knowledge he has little advantage over his rivals, having spent much of his road racing career in Europe.
Last year's event saw Stoner clinch his second world title, on his birthday.
Stoner finished third in last Sunday's rain-shortened Malaysian Grand Prix, his second race back since surgery.
