They mentioned something similar on the broadcast with crutchlow's front fender. His front gets too hot apparently

Things may get very tough for Rossi or anyone else not on a Duc or Honda, next year, because JLo has learned to adapt, and so has Ducati. When Dovi can run like this, it is spooky. He trusts the bike, a lot. And the bike is fast. And Lorenzo has really changed to become a more well-rounded rider. Is Iannone or Zarco capable of interrupting the top four? I never believed Maverick was, and unless Yamaha builds a bike specifically for his quirks, I don't think he is relevant. And may retire as soon as Spies.

longer brake lines are more flexible. the brake lines add a good amount of "stiction" to the front suspension.

Only problem, they've all got to be better than Marquez and that ain't looking likely.

Best hope for a non-Marquez championship anytime soon is someone able to take enough points out of him regularly.

each team will route the brake lines differently, so in case of the honda, it seems longer and flares out as opposed to the others

Next we'll see aero brake lines like the A arms on one wheel race cars. Get ready for hoselets or lineards.
