"Stoner and Pedrosa tested around 40 last season"
Honda may have went through 40 frames during the entire 800cc era but not in 1 year. They don't even test enough to evaluate 40 frames. Hell Stoner probably didn't even do 40 test laps last year let alone test more than a couple of chassis.
Last year at Valencia or Sepang 1, Honda brought 3 chassis - the old one, a new stiff one, and a softer new one. Casey choose the new stiff one, Dani thought about using the old one but ended up on a new one, and I forgot which one Dovi chose. But no way in hell they went through 40 different chassis types in a year. That's not even possible with the lack of testing AND building a 1000cc bike.
Maybe they went through 40 of the same chassis over the season between Repsol, Gresini, and LCR replacing crashed bikes and the like but no way they built and evaluated 40 different types of chassis.
