After taking two race wins at his home circuit of Mallroy Park, HM Plant Honda rider Michael Rutter admitted to Crash.net that he and his team need to sort out the set-up on his Fireblade to get it handling the way he wants.

Rutter, who is currently the UK's leading hope of winning BSB this season, stated after the second race that the CBR1000 was more suited to his factory Honda team-mate Kiyonari, and in order for him to improve to an equal footing to Kiyo, he and his team have some work to do before Oulton Park on 2nd May.

"We all know Kiyo is on the pace," he said to Crash.net. "If he had been out there in that race we wouldn't have seen which way he went!"

"We have got to work hard on the bike to get it working the way I want really. Hopefully we can come up with the answer by Oulton because Kiyo will be out there again fighting fit!"

The main issue Rutter has with the handling of the HM Plant Honda is the way the bike has been set-up by Kiyonari over the winter months to suit his lose riding style.

"Mainly I just want something that suits me a bit more, Kiyo gets on with it real well - he just slides it around. I don't like all that sliding around I just want it to hook up.

"Hopefully we can make it the way I want it, I've been trying to follow the way Kiyo rides it but its been the wrong way to go because he has been doing a lot of testing over in Japan. Really I've got to do something my own way and hopefully we will go forward then."
