...............for the stupid post of the day.

What exactly is the problem, (as you see it) with the KTM? Maybe you should phone in a tire pressure or clicker setting that would help. Possibly re-map the ignition, maybe try a new grind on the cam. Alter the steering by a 1/2 degree one way or another.

Do you even have a clue as to the difference between 1st and 5th at this level of competion? It is almost all mental by now, the equipment is pretty much equal and has been set up with the riders input all during the off season and then continually during the season.
They can make a Suzuki feel like a Honda if they want.

Fuck, you guys drive me nuts.

It's the only team he's ever been on. They just changed bikes.

He will gain more speed soon. As was said, it head games now and he seems to have more trouble with those than most. Don't know why?

You know, the bike was the problem then too. IIRC it didn't start once and the damn chain fell off another time. Stupid Suzukis.

And your point is???

Let's now switch to bashing mechanics, not brands.

He hasn't always been on a KTM. We can do baby steps if this is too hard to keep up with.

These two things plus running out of gas while leading an outdoor moto cost him 2 championships.

Exactly. That was my point. Dungey's issues with the bike during his last season on Suzuki had more to do with the mechanic working on the bike then the quality of the bike itself.

That outdoor where Dungey's bike wouldn't start, and subsequently starting nearly a lap down, was definitely a clusterf*ck.

Now we're getting somewhere. So we all acknowledge that he wasn't always on KTMs. That could've been less painful and we didn't need to drag a mechanic through the mud.

Now let's move on.
Is Roczen doing OK, or is the shitty KTM holding the rookie up?
Is Anderson doing OK or would he be doing better on his old ride?
Is Brayton doing OK on the Yamaha? Sure they are.

It's not steel vs aluminum or even Ohlins for everyone. It's the rider and how he helps set up the bike through endless testing and R&D.

A lot of it is who has the balls to hit a quad jump.

All this talk about one bike vs another is childish and sounds like some kind of NASCAR crap. At this level, it is 95% rider and 5% Aldon Baker.
