Yamaha Racing com Toprak=68kg 68 X 2.2 = 149.6 lbs Zoo is Yamaha lying/wrong ? No you are wrong yet again . Zoo we all make mistakes but man up and admit to it at least jesus

btw by alex figures Redding 174 bautista 132 174-132= 42 lbs point is he is at a weight disadvantage (not his fault) as extra weight does effect tire wear in a bad way .

Roehr, you said Redding was 40lbs heavier than the rest, he is not, enough arguing and pulling data out of your a**.
Weights of racers are reported differently on sites depending on when they were signed. Stoprak is not 149lbs.

FYI since no racing action .... If your looking to get Stompgrip tank protectors ect , the ...Icon.. pattern not only looks much better but is much more grippy than the normal ..tits .. type
Agreed, I have the regular ones on my S1KRR and my buddy put the icon pattern ones on his V2... looks better and feels a little better too imo.

The changes made to Redding’s bike have definitely given him more feel and confidence, hopefully this will translate to a good superpole time, giving a good starting position for the races. Rea said they used the same tyre 🛞 in Fp2 as Fp1, safe to assume he will be battling at the front. Rinaldi seems to have a good pace at Most along with Bautista. Toprak usual exciting to watch with rear in the air at every opportunity. Lowes ,Gerloff Baz also not far away. Going to be good racing 👍

The narrators spoke on how Heavy/big Redding is and how the fact that Sykes also being Heavy/big helped BMW set up the M1000RR for Redding . Now that the M1000rr has found competitive speed/lap times hopefully the tires will hold up to the extra weight and not go off as early as in the last race killing Reddings chance for victory or podium .

Alex what should they talk about how redding parts his hair? im sure pillow biters would like to know that info but not your average race fan lol. High weight effects tire wear . Tire wear makes it harder to finish a race without slowing /crashing and winning/placing well . It is a small mans sport .

Redding is in his element, good fight for 2nd & 3rd. Hopefully BMW had solved its issues, we can see improvements in new S1k models.
Crazy for Rea to be pole holder & finish 4th.

Bautista maximizing Rea/Stoprak dueling it out & slight rain. Most of his passes on the straights & corner exits.

Stoprak won superpole & race 2. Some amazing passes.
Baut did a good job catching up after missing T1.
Rea is struggling.
Redding 4th place, good progress, but still lots of work needed to win.

Being Rea is a little guy i can say it was due to the fact he was riding SO hard . No one was turning/ going through corners as hard or as fast as Rea .He went into 1 corner so much faster than toprack Rea hit topraks rear tire . I heard the Narrator say 1 of the top 4 was running a different rear tire . Rea was in the midst of making an incredible pass on Toprak in a very right section of the track so i didnt catch which rider was using the different rear tire .

Zoo the BMW M1000RR has made a big jump forward and is now good enough to podium/win Now the Honda CBR 1000RRR needs Alot of work/new chassis to just podium .It definitely is now the worse bike in WSBK Lecuono might just be as good as toprak/Rea but he stuck on the honda which needs front/rear grip/feel and it even blew engine in 2nd race . Would love to see what the kid could do on another brand.
Zoo Rea got pole position . How is he ...struggling ??.. Yes the Kawasaki needs a bit more power as he needs a draft to pass Toprak butRea is cornering better than anyone and he is still a contender to win any race or the title.

Honda RRR needs most work on grid, BMW made much better progress. I left Honda out, there is nothing to comment on, no progress.
Rea struggling to win lately, the last time he won was in May. Any of the top 3 has the potential to win the title, we are only half way through the season.
