Honda rider Tetsuya Harada's 2002 world championship preparations have suffered a massive blow after he highsided his NSR500 and broke a collarbone in tests at Estoril.

The former world 250 champion has chosen not undergo surgery despite the new season being just six weeks away.

Harada expects to be fit enough to ride at the crucial IRTA test in Barcelona on March 9, when all the new four-strokes clash for the first time.
