2019 WSBK THailand (Spoiler)

Rea out rides Bautista to claim his first win of the 2019 season. This might be the headline one day during 2019 but not today LOL Bautista won the first race in Thailand over Rea by 3-4 seconds despite a on track collision where neither went down but it did give Rea a temporary lead of 2 seconds . Bautista powered past Rea a few laps later and never looked back. The Kawasaki does handle better than the Ducati V-4 so I am looking forward to the tight tracks. Rea stated the Ducati has a big advantage over his ZX10R IMO fishing for Dorna to hamper the Ducati V-4 , hopefully this will not happen If anyone needs more power its Sykes and the BMW S1000RR. Again the handling is razor sharp as at one corner Sykes rode around the Outside of 4 riders only to have the same 4 riders pass him immeadiatly down the strait. Honda HRC doesn't seem to have any answers to its Horsepower/handling woes. Camier was so POED he was beating his fists on the tank just after crossing the finish line . I think I heard Camier say WHY DIDNT I RESIGN WITH MV LOLOL.

Exactly. HRC perfected the whine for Ducati restriction.

Dorna restricted Aprilia for designing the best bike on the grid , then Dorna restricted Kawasaki for having the best bike/rider on the grid. Dorna restricted RPM on 2018 ZX10RR who had new engine with finger followers in valve train for higher RPM. It has been lifted but point is restrictions on bEST bikes doenst make for closer racing . best teas have biggest budget and work around restriction OR Smaller factories pack there bags and leave . In BOTH cases you have pissed off the manufacture. IF THEY HAD LEFT APRILIA ALONE YOU WOULD HAVE HAD KAWASAKI IN CLOSE RACING WITH APRILIA AND BOTH CLOSE RACING WITH DUCATI NOW Ö..LEAVE STRONG TEAMS/INNOVATION ALONE. IF DORNA WANTS TO HELP WEAKER TEAMS GIVE THE 10 YEAR OLD HONDA DESIGN A 100cc DISPLACEMENT INCREASE. EVERYONE IS HAPPY .. HOPEFULLY DORNA SEES THIS LOL.

Dont restrict anything except displacement. Superbike should be a maximum displacement of 1000cc and if a factory cant build a competitve bike then too bad. No more 1200cc Ducati bikes etc.

Huh? Why?

I realise your comment's probably tongue-in-cheek, but if a team can't field and develop a competitive bike within the capacity limit, why spoon feed them the means to improve? I am totally against any form of handicapping (horses included). I accept there must be budgetary limits (which in itself is a form of handicap) within the development field, but racing is all bout competition, and that competition should be conducted with fairness across the grid. Too high an ideal, I know, but teams with the knowledge and expertise to devlop their machines should be rewarded and not penalised.

Easy he is waiting for new bits for the Yam to cure the intrinsic instability of the R1, which all riders are suffering from.

It must be just his setup, other riders on same bikes don't have issues, even those which are similar weight.

Is this 3 bikes on the trot that he has issues with, sooner or later he needs to adapt. Just my opinion

This is a new situation that I have never seen before . The Ducati 1199 had an inherent wobble but worse on Melandris bike (The new Ducati has a bit of wobble also) The Yamaha R1 is said to be a good handling/stable bike yet Melandri and only Melandri is experiencing high speed wobble. The 1199 Ducati had inherent wobble because of excessive flex in the airbox which is part of the Ducati Monoque chassis.. Is excessive flex part of Melandris style/set up and his team just put too much flex in chassis ? Then again I do not recall Melandri having a flexy chassis on the Aprilia RSV4? Yamaha says they will have problem fixed shortly with the use of new suspension components . I have no idea how/why changing suspension components will fix this situation ?

I guess new suspension components is about shifting weight distribution and overall geometry. No idea how you solve his problem and not affect the general capabilities of the R1. I've always found the R1 to be stable platform, and we have a lot of tight tracks with heavy acceleration on to the the straights. Even like the devil's elbow, off camber downhill on to the front straight at Mallory it felt more stable than my GSXRs that would weave a bit if you are ham fisted.

It's feels like it's a melandri issue rather than inherent bike issues.

Melandri wobbled on the Duc, he wobbles on the Yammy....I believe it's a Melandri problem.
