MotoGP » PICS: Nicky Hayden returns to Honda

You cannot modify the engine once it is delivered. They are SEALED and marked so if you open the engine, it's an automatic disqualification. So no, you cannot add pneumatic valves or a seamless transmission unless you purchase it from Honda. So if Aspar has the money, they can buy them. @Pakundo219 -- You're a fool. You know NOTHING about MotoGP. If you did, you'd know that Honda used Hayden as a test rider, preferring to give the best to their "favorite" Rider (Pedrobot). It's a Spanish sponsored team, they demand 100% support for Spanish riders, not Americans. Sorry they hate Americans -- but even though Nicky has 3 wins, he was a title which Pedrobot does not.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden - Q&A

Vilas46, are you myopic? ALL riders that have gone to Ducati have done so for the money. Nicky is not only a great rider, but smart as well. He's had far less support than other riders and doesn't complain. Why you dislike Hayden is beyond me, other than the fact that you're simply insecure. And if you think Cal, who moved to Ducati for the money, not for a "great" bike is going to have better results, ask Rossi, Dovi or anyone besides Stoner that's ridden it. *****!

MotoGP » Hayden: Nowhere to put in a clean pass

If you put Hayden on a factory based Honda, he'd be sitting somewhere in the top 5. I don't think he has enough to push Marquez, but I've seen him push and pass the two other Spaniards. Let's face it, once Ducati became NOT the sole user of electronic valves, that was their death sentence. I remember they used to walk away from conventional valve-based bikes (all the rest). Not anymore. Ducati is done in GP as far as I am concerned. Would rather see Suzuki and Kawasaki back in MotoGP.

MotoGP » Hayden: Nowhere to put in a clean pass

You must not understand racing. You can get pole every single race, what matters is HOW you race. WINS are what matters. Poles don't mean crap! And I feel I can call him CrutchSLOW when he throws a leg over the Ducati and says "WTF did I do?!" Just ask Valentino. Stoner was the only guy who could ride that POS and even then he did not win consistently and had only 1 title on Ducrappy.

MotoGP » Hayden: Nowhere to put in a clean pass

Yes, Joe, he would be. CrutchSLOW is going to get a rude awakening when he takes Hayden's seat. Then again, Nicky's been doing the DONKEY work for other riders his entire career, so maybe Cal starts winning on the bike after the factory realizes their bike is a big POS! Remember, in 2005/2006 Hayden was every bit as fast or faster than Pedrobot. It was only after they changed it to an 800CC and screwed around with so many things that Hayden had to adapt. Look, even Stoner had some rough years at Ducrappy but look what happened when he got on a Honda :)

MotoGP » Dovizioso fears Yamaha hopes scuppered by Rossi

CRT and "Factory Spec electronics" is what is killing MotoGP. The Satellite teams cannot compete with Factory spec bikes. It's not the engine or chassis, it's how finely tuned the FACTORY electronics are. The FACTORY can dial in their #1 riders bike to out perform any other factory or satellite bike. In summation, MotoGP is dead as long as FACTORY SPEC ELECTRONICS are allowed. CRT cannot compete with FACTORY ELECTRONICS. Satellite teams cannot compete with FACTORY ELECTRONICS. In other words, we will NEVER have a decent MotoGP race when Lorenzo and Pedrosa get the best FACTORY electronics and everyone else's bike is "tuned down".

MotoGP » Rookie Bradl scales order to sixth overall

You guys need to understand this: The FACTORY sets the electronics packages and can fine tune the electronics to get whatever performance for each rider as they want to give them. NO RIDER, FOR NOW ON IN GP on a SATELLITE bike is EVER, EVER, EVER going to beat a FACTORY bike. The Factory will not allow it. This isn't 500CC or 990CC era when electronics were simplified and much less customized. Regardless if the engine and chassis is the same, ELECTRONICS are what determines who makes the most HP, the best traction control, etc. This is why Crutchlow and Dovisoso want FACTORY rides. They want to fight for wins and they may, but they will not beat the #1 rider on any factory team as long as the FACTORY can fine tune the electronics any way they want go. Get ride of the customized electronics and let the BEST RIDER win.

MotoGP » Hayden flies Ducati flag, overtakes Rossi overall

@Schoony59 In all fairness, Nicky has always been relegated as a #2 rider. He came into MotoGP as Valentino's #2 rider. Then #2 to Barros. Then #2 to Biaggi. Then #2 to Pedrosa. Then #2 to Stoner. See the pattern?! And keep in mind the factory and techs can set up the electronics any way they want to, in addition to chassis/engine upgrades. Basically, it means WHOEVER the factory wants to succeed will succeed and the rest are left trying to do the best they can with whatever they give them (this is why Satellite teams can't compete now like they used to in the 990 days). Back then electronics were simple and much less customizable. Nicky can't do better than 6th without the FACTORY backing him 100%.
