Re sole efforts (single rider),... It was successful on the Nustro Azurro Honda of VR... It was good on the LCR 990 Honda, Good on the the lower classes (250,125) But not applicable on the Suzuki GSV-R... The NSR500 that vale rode was a competitive and fully developed bike, the the 990 RCV is fully developed, even satellite bikes can win during that era. 125's and 250's are at the end of their development, even 5 year old bikes can be competitive when given update kits.. Sole efforts are good when it is focused on winning or achieving good results(no development needed, just fiddling with the settings to make it go fast). However it tends to backfire badly when the bike needs developmental work. Test riders cannot ride the bikes at the limit, they are simply not fast enough. 2004, when yam needs a lot of development, they gave the satellite teams factory bikes to help with the development.
