"why would a team that puts a jardine sticker on the bike not use a jardine pipe. if it where an arata then why wouldnt they put a arata sticker on the bike"
Coz they pay them to? Haha I am amazed at how many people are amazed that this happens. If an exhaust manufacturer wants to pour money into a race team for advertising, where are they gonna wantthe name of their product? On the muffler. Now, if they aren't up to the task of making exhausts to the performance standards that other pipe manufacturers are what is the team gonna do? Exactly............. use what they want with a Jardine sticker. It's been proven 100 times, and some people on other forums that are involved in AMA etc have said the same thing, they are not Jardine pipes. Now, if you still believe they are............. ask why they are making systems etc that work very well for race teams but produce made to price systems that don't work real great for you to buy on the back of and under the pretence of how they are marketing themselves to you. LOL
In Moto GP, I haveheard from some, that the Honda RCV's are only allowedby Honda to use Elf oil. Dunno how true that is, but if it was, how many here buy Repsol oil coz Honda's factory team use it in GP? And, for those that have ever been in thepits, how many used or full Repsol barrels etc have you seen floating around? Racing for sponsors is purely a business, nothing to do with what is actually being used. It's product by association. You see a bike, it has a system on it, on that system is a sticker, "Jardine", what do you now assume they use?
