In summary - is HRC fucked?
No but think it's smarting though - with half of the Honda R&D team there they should be able to sort it, their posse must number over 30 and with 3 bikes to run and 5 bikes there the attention should not be an issue as long as it ain't a too many cooks issue

My darkhorse tip for today is bike #156... latch on and make a move, is the gameplan I reckon...

The bikes should be well serviced... #3 had four new air filters installed last night...

so have we decided for sure that its a quantity issue rather than a plumbing issue?

Moning f5ers Well I see they reseeded JC to start 31st, left poor busted wheel Quintanilla down in 163rd, would thought with the speed he showed till his wheel mishap they would have moved in up a bit

So do we know what is actually wrong with the crfs?

I mean mikuni fuel pumps are pretty rock solid right? They are tried and tested no?

Is it Crf fuel injectors getting blocked?

Do we know what was causing the gas guzzling?

If I was HRC with 30 staff and 10-20 million being spent is it fair to say the performance is disappointing ?

Might have been better to stick with the Honda Europe crfs from last year...

On what logical basis can JC Be reseeded? He had a bike fault no? Why does he get Dakar sympathy?

I really don't think they are gas guzzlers, just underestimated fuel milage and made the tanks to small,

Old Enduros... when you see people with cameras SLOW DOWN!!! They aren't there for no reason.

Old ISDT .. see people with furled umbrellas in the rain ... look where the umbrella points .. or (if not pointing) pick your line very carefully.

He is a faster rider so move him up with the faster riders to try and prevent any unnecessary crashes with slower riders
