Ok, here's the deal to keep Suzuki in MotoGP next year: They can keep their 'current' bike with only minor refinements permitted, they must use the current spec of engine... ..but give them another 2 litres of fuel. Less than CRT teams but more than factory. Of course they'd never allow it to happen (cos it'd be grossly unfair!)but I'm willing to wager they'd find a lot of speed with more gas. It's not just about top end power, but about the way the bike behaves on a closed throttle and how the electronics work for the TC. One of Capirossi's big issues was that he couldn't get on with the 800 and it's fuel saving methods. Having fuel to spare makes a bike far more predictable, stable and friendly.
