Did the privateer's support crews get access to this pit stop repose or is it VIP only?

I haven't caught up yet this am on all the posts here, so sorry if duplicate.

Update from Freedom. This was "Tuesday's" update. THey just got wifi this am to send. I can't imagine Scott's stress over Luis' bike. 2nd motor after day 4. Previous years it went so flawlessly. Scott did not build his bike this year, so I don't know the mechanical differences this year vs the previous 2 that Scott built. Without talking to them who knows what's causing the burn thru them this year.

Sandi


Tuesday 8th
Again a frustrating day on a couple of counts. Luis got in at 2:00am or so… with another “fried” engine. It overheated and cracked the cylinder, luckily AFTER he finished the “special” (the dunes and mountains). This meant that Jaime and Scott spent another night working into the wee hours of the morning putting in the third and last engine! Marco and Mateo of course arrived without i...ncident with normal wear on their bikes! Mateo is still slowly rising in the ranks and Marco is just very happy to get through in one piece. Liliana, his wife of course, happy to see him back in one piece.
Wednesday 9th,
Today the riders started at roughly 9:00 am in the morning. They all arrived safe and sound …no problems with ANY of the bikes. This is good because tonight we skip two hours of transition time, as we are now in Arica, Chile. I have not seen so much dessert in my life! The border crossing took an hour, dogs sniffing for fruit and maybe drugs, who knows. They did not find the fruit Jenny hid under the bed.
So this is real short, and may not be posted for a couple of days. As we are still fushing around running a race! Night!

I think the Yammie with the weird pipe is the backwards motor...fuel intake on the front exhaust back so it needs that little loop to make the power better than what would be a real short pipe

yes, privateers get access (if they have the infrastructure to do it).
I see Lucas Bonetto´s (Argentinean quad rider) service truck right there.

It was discussed yesterday, and it certainly could be by the looks of things. To win he needs another coma, not a Faria

So The Yamahas do not have fuel injection right? Nor do the KTM's.

Yet they are the bikes out front on the Dakar.

Tell me again why EFi is such a good thing or am I missing something obvious?

Something they did on the back end broke it. There are a few that happened to, some of the oldest smilies. My guess is that they may have been actually hosted on smug servers or something (most of the smilies were migrated to amazon), and those boxes finally came off line.

That's just a guess, though. Kaia could probably speak to it better than I.

that backwards cylinder head would give some different options on where to put the air filter? is there any pic of a stripped yz rally?

Yes the YZ has the intake in front exhaust out the rear but for the right back pressure, the pipe needs to be a certain length which is why we see the loops or the one's like Frans Verhoevens that loop in front of the clutch cover.
