So he was on a year old factory kit...no different than what happens today. yes I am aware that Suzuki/Roberts won in Rossi's first year but rossi took the title on a Satellite team/factory-backed etc etc. Still don't see him getting the full factory tricks before the repsol team...not enough clout at the time..if he had the clout he would have been Repsol team in 2001 not a satellite rider. But again that is just my conjecture/speculation.
