Rain this morning in Sepang saw most of the track action taking place in the afternoon, with Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa fastest of the day with a 2'00.562 lap.
With yesterday's fastest man Jorge Lorenzo concentrating on race simulations, no one was close to his pace of yesterday that saw him set a 2'00.282.
There were minor crashes from Nicky Hayden and Marc Marquez, who escaped unhurt despite three crashes.
Cal Crutchlow, fustrated by a lack of new parts to test, didn't manage to improve on yuesterday's time that saw him third fastest.
PBM rookie Michael Laverty, riding the Cumbrian team's home-built CRT machine, managed to improve his time to within 0.7 of the time he set at the last test on his teammate's Aprilia.
