Tech 3 confident Yamaha will supply new gearbox

Satellite Yamaha boss Herve Poncharal remains confident that Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith will be racing a new seamless shift gearbox when the 2014 campaign kicks off in Qatar next month. When winter testing resumed at the Sepang track in Malaysia earlier this month, Tech 3 continued with Yamaha’s standard transmission, with Smith eighth and rookie Espargaro ninth on the final...

This story is clearly untrue

 It's common knowledge that direction and development at Yamaha is being led by Valentino Rossi and although I can't substantiate any of my argument with fact it's also common knowledge that Rossi has decreed ginger people or grinning Spaniards will not be getting any spangly kit for fear of making them faster and thus upsetting the carefully arranged yellow apple cart.

Slightly odd that Yamaha haven't given Tech 3 the gearboxes already. The hard part was the research, development and design. They know it works, so now it's just a case of manufacturing a few, how hard can it be?

 Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.............why on earth would Yamaha be letting Rossi pull all the strings when they have the best rider in Motogp in their team.     Many people on here are not  fans of Rossi, but that doesn't mean they have to make up s**t about him.

Dunno, ask DeGrasse

 It's his theory, I was just using this fresh thread to mock him with it.

 Ask Burgess and Yamaha. Links provided, no Blah-blah, flame bates, psychological blocks and fanboyism, apart from the usual trolls that is.

"When Valentino and I arrived in 2004. All we had to do was go changing things on the bike one by one and give engineers the feedback for that may develop l to bike in the right direction . This is one reason why Yamaha has re-signing Valentino. Because Yamaha are not sure with the development of the M1 which has now been made ​​for Lorenzo and Spies".

Yes, the bike is going very well but the Japanese, as I understand it, they want a second opinion besides Lorenzo and Spies, to stay ahead of its rivals.

They know they do not have all the information they should on the M1,  know Yamaha rider Valentino is a very sensitive when it comes to understand and tune a bike , while Jorge is able to go fast with any bike.

Yamaha also brought another very big trump card to the 2004 season by signing Valentino Rossi. Rossi was not only a super-fast rider but also a sharp contributor in machine development, qualities that had won him the nickname "The Doctor." Rossi would prove that reputation by bringing out more than 100% of the new YZR-M1's potential in winning the pole position in the opening round of the 2004 season and going on to a pole-to-checkered victory in his debut race with Yamaha.

 Cost. The priosity is to the factory team, and they are still trying to sort out the 2014 M1, it's not going as well as some would like, in particular Lorenzo who complains about the tyres and harser power delivery.

When they got their gear togerther the other will perhaps see parts coming their way.

Precious:

 "However, the Yamaha YZR-M1 in the specification in 2011 was not an ideal design. After the departure of Valentino Rossi and foremost, the project leader, Masao Furusawy, the changes introduced for 2011 proved to be a step in the wrong direction. For this reason, after a few races, Lorenzo decided to go on a 2010 motorcycle - half of the season with old frame and swingarm".

ps A new, longer swing arm was introduced at Le Man 2011.

 No doubt Rossi's input maybe welcomed by Yamaha and they may make a bike that is more adjustable to suit various riders. But they are not going to build a bike to the detriment of JL, it wouldn't make sense.
