DOH!! This not good news. Hopefully this gets squared away quickly by Honda.

Looks like Honda has switched over to pneumatic valves as well. That could be part of the issue.

Yea, there were some problems with the motor, but nothing they won't have sorted out for tomorrow.

They said that by the time they had it fixed the testing time was over (it was only a HALF DAY of testing today).

Not too big of a deal. Pedrosa was fine on the machine.

Hayden's back on the second day and he's flying just 0.8 sec behind the leader of the day, Casey Stoner. Again, they are the only two that are riding sub-1'33s. Everyone is behind them in short order. The bike seems fast and Nicky seems to be whipping off those 1'32s. The surprise to me is that Marco Melandri is not even in the top 10, but Loris on the Suzuki is SMOKIN'! Hopper is right up there too on the Green Machine.

Indeed, Hayden is riding the ballz off that bike. Although with his own setup i am sure he'll edge even closer to stoner, let's just hope Honda has given him more power since he's been requesting that of late.

Agreed on the Marco comment. Maybe the power delivery of the Ducati doesn't match his riding style just yet?

I am really excited to see what's going to happen in the upcoming year, especially with everyone shuffled around. They are being forced to learn new machinery and work with different staff. Let's not forget the all important tires.
