Hmm..finally I found the correct password.
RawDawg...A bike is fine tuned by the input from the rider and that rider say/feedback is of great value to the maker of the bike. Otherwise, we could all go out and buy store bikes made by the Factory, based on their R & D and tech., mechs. etc...
Unfortunately, for Motogp, that could never work as every part must be tested and it's the rider and chief mechanic that have this say. It's why Masao Furusawa holds Rossi up so high as to the M1's reversal of fortunes. Yes, he made/designed the best bike, but he left the choices up to Rossi, even at times the data via computer said Rossi choices was sometimes wrong. It's why Lorenzo choosed to go back the the 2010 M1 in 2011.
Rossi 2011 ride failed, that is correct, he did his best on what was a bike that Casey could never win a WC on. Casey's ride after 2007 was that of diminishing returns, the bike never got better year after year, it got worse, until he quit abrutly at the beginning of 2010.
