I hope the R1 will be sorted by then. But I am not expecting much from Cructhlow and Toseland to be up front right away. as what had happen to Camier of BSB, and josh Hayes in AMA-Racing. but once they understood the bike they were virtually unstoppable.

I am hoping for a strong finished of this two later in the second half of the season, but if they can perform better much earlier that I expected then good for them. It would be a big Plus for Yamaha. once again Good luck to the Sterilgarda Team

It's not the same bike Ben was on last year, it's had work done on it and it's ballsed it up. Finger's x'd they have it sorted for this weekend as it's shaping up to be a lot of fun to watch

Go #41!

Stavros !!!!
Please my friend you are contradicting yourself. How can it be the same bike if it is lighter and has more horsepower DOH !!!!! Those 2 factors alone will make the bike totally different, and what about the carbon tank they had to take off, which was causing the chatter ???? Sometimes so called improvements hold back the developments. So it's really shame on Yamaha for going backwards and making the riders look like it's their fault. :rolleyes:

This is WSBK not MotoGP remember, they actually are not allowed to change the fundamentals of the bike. But of course they can tune the engine and play with bodywork. And yes, they took off the main changes from last years bike and went back to the 09 tank and seat unit so the bike is even less different than it was pre season!

The bike was good enough to win the title in its first ever crack at the title, no way has it gone from a title winner to a dog in its second year. James will suffer in comparison to Spies all year and will probably continue to blame the bike all year.

so let me try and understand this, Spies in his first year in WSB went faster and won the championship because he was on a heavier and less powerfull bike that had very little development done on it. is it not just possible that he is a better rider? :rolleyes:

Lamp, i think Spies is a better rider than either of them and that's no disrespect to JT or CC. The facts are that they have changed the bike making it lighter and faster but this has caused a huge amount of chatter. Just because something is lighter or faster does not make it better if it is that much harder to ride. There were no chatter issues last year and at PI they acutally took off some of the new parts for the second race and in turn improving the bike.
Stavros, have you seen how much you can change in WSBK? It's a huge amount. What you are not allowed to do is change the silhouette of the bike in comparison to the one in the showroom.......

for those Spies fan, or Toseland Hater, I Believe it is time to stop comparing both riders. You are just making a flame on something that would only arises another flame.

These Guys is not Spies, so stop comparing instead give this guys a break some may be gifted and some were not. If you think Spies is going better than these guys then he might be gifted. But surely this guys is working hard hard to make things work on their favor, I do hope Cruthclow and Toseland will do well ASAP to make this people shut up and move on.
I am a Spies fan but keeping comparison between riders is a very old story already, that page has supposedly ended long time ago.
