Would adding pit stops to the current Motogp make it more interesting??

I believe it would and to make it simple each rider would have to do a tire change using both soft and hard tires on the same bike.....

No way, the race is too short, and too fast to even consider that. They fight for 1/10's of a second. A pit stop makes no sense at all.

There not going around those circuits as fast as F1 cars but of course you would increase laps.....
But if you increase the laps, you face the problem of rider fatigue. And there's also the danger of exiting pit lane... F1 cars can turn on a dime for an evasive maneuver, and they have side mirrors to look behind them. As we saw at Philips island, it's probably not a good idea to make riders pit at every race.

I don't see anything wrong with the races right now. Adding pit stops would destroy the flow, for no good reason.

No pitstops. Unsafe and not needed.

Maybe just do one race a year similar to the Daytona 200 (AMA), and award more points if you win. But your team has to do tire & fuel up, not just changing bikes.

The only place where pit stops are relevant in motorcycle racing are in endurance races and during the IOM TT. For short circuit racing they are completely unnecessary.
