lot of people say vale and jb developed the M1 , and a lot say it was furusawa.
the reality is it was project leader Koichi Tsuji who developed the 3 new engine versions with increased power delivery.
they were made and tested in 2003 , all vale and co had to do was pick the best one , vale knew of these developments at yam in advance to storming out of honda and into a brilliant new yamaha racing team.
looking in from the outside it appeared vale was heading onto a dud bike and only yamaha and vale and co knew otherwise , this is what started the development god myth.
