With talk that they will be testing it at a private test in Brno on 6th and 7th August how much lap time would it actually give the bikes over the current gearbox, would it be a massive game changer?

Apart from the cumulative gain in lap time throughout the entire duration of a race, supposedly slicker, smoother transmission as a rider aid alongside a modicum of fuel economy.





The only reason it wasn't in there from the start of this season was due to a lack of testing time.

Would the introduction of commas, periods and capitals to Cliches posts make them understandable and less seamless

I don't think it's going to make it 'unbeatable' but I do think it is what Yamaha needs right now... Both riders are requesting it as top priority and this will be even more critical next year when they go down to 20 liters of fuel.





If the factory guys get this soon, Cal is going to throw a fit... lol.

It's a game changer for sure.


But it isn't going to make the M1 unbeatable by any means.
