I cannot understand this silly rule regarding fake headlight stickers!!!ALL organising bodies in both 2 & 4 wheel racing have lost all sense of reality. Common ECU's etc.....CRAZEEEE

@Mosef - Personally I like the headlight stickers. They were sported by the Kawasakis this year and looked good.

The people who post on this site or read Crash are generally hardcore bike fans who understand the difference between the classes and for them the stickers may not make much sense. However I have found that most of the guys at work who watch a bit of bike racing don't have a clue about the bikes - they will come in on a Monday thinking that BSB is the top class and is faster than MotoGP because they saw a bit of the Thruxton round (which looks quicker). So for the casual viewer it helps differentiate the production based from the prototype.

Just to add - the guys at work with no clue about the differences between BSB, WSBK and MotoGP mostly own 600cc sports bike and you would expect them to have some knowledge, but it seems that a lot of bike owners do not follow the sport and / or know very little about it.

The headlight stickers to me don't make much sense. Fit them to super stock machines, that make sense, but SBK machines, no.

Pit stops, i've not seen the reg's so does anyone know if they have to stick to the hologomated axle arrangement or can they fit quick change arrangements?

Pitstops and weight changes are arguable. Headlamp stickers? The world's gone mad. Ezpeleta's first cretinous rule change of 2013. Getting one in early. The man is an idiot AND HE'S RUINING OUR SPORT. In fact, that should be past tense. It's done. What a p****k (for our American friends, it's a word that's slang for testicle).

So ducati have spat their dummy out and cried enough so that the rules can be bent in their favour again. They know their panigale is a nail with its silly carbon frame so they need the rules to be bent in their favour...being the laughing stock in motogp is bad enough.......rubbish
