I’m astonished by the speed with which it leans ok it’s fast it’s violent Do you remember the bike which I made the run-in? well, that bike has been slightly modified My God, it’s gorgeous. It’s totally different from the other one that one from the run-in we removed about 15kg, took off all the original parts brakets, original wiring, control unit, draining so the original cat. It’s become lighter and we placed yec cat and wiring then we mounted our buttons and telemeter do we can monitor the performance of when you’re on the track. The forks are original? No, we put the ohlins’ full cartridge and mono ohlins ttx wow. how many hp more than before? about 15 190 now the white hulls you see are hull tests then during the race I will use the hulls with official coloring Also the bike that I will use in the race is exactly what you see except for the discharge In fact, from the next session on the track we will have a beautiful upgrade that SC has provided us I won’t let you hear anything else before the next video furthermore I would like to say that if all this is possible, it is also thanks to Negri Motors, which is an official yamaha dealership from Milan and who has been a partner of the technical motor team for three years a dealership that is very active in racing and also in everyday road bikes and my team and I want to personally thank Walter and Luca who are the owners Ok so now you have no idea of how much work is behind such a bike I wanted to make a video dedicated to to the transformation from road motorbike to racing motorbike but as soon as the team told me the amount of recording days it would have taken I said “It’s impossible. I can’t” Moreover I’ve seen bikes and teams for many years now this bike is perfect it’s a jewel. Tecnica Motor did an awesome job so now that the first 30 minutes spent drooling over the bike are over it’s time to hit the track for the first entrances what do you suggest? I’d say do 2-3 laps of adjustment get some rhythm then we do tire pressure and you can tell me your thoughts we’ll check that all is okay and then you can go again How’s the electronics, the set-up… right now it’s a bit invasive we’ve kept the traction a bit high just to help you get used to it afterwards we’ll lower it we can’t give it you violent in the curves right now although you’ll still feel the push but the traction can help you out a bit and we’ll eliminate it after ok I’m shocked by the race bike It has nothing to do with all the R1s I’ve ever ridden. Nothing. I’m astonished by the speed with which it bends it’s fast that’s not serious I was used to the r1 on the road you have to make it go.. with this one you’re already down as soon as you think it it’s violent it’s a power 3, traction 5 let me translate that for you practically all those little buttons that are there on the handlebars also have the function of setting, while driving, the electronics 2 main settings traction control, the control of the traction, which avoids that the rear tire turns and spins throwing you off and the power, which is the one that regulates the output, so how violent the bike is when giving gas now, my sensation after the first session was of being raped by the bike so I’ll go to therapy now Although I had the feeling of being inside a washing machine in a spin the team manager told me that the traction control and the power were at maximum level so that was the least violent the bike can get I’m traumatised and going from the road bike to the race bike is not easy. How can I understand which is the lean limit? you have to feel it it’s the famous feeling the pilot has with the bike so it’s up to you to feel it but it goes hand in hand with your speed ok if you lean too much, you fall not necessarly just the max bent you have to do it with closed gas or slightly no, closed. The entrance and max lean you do it closed. ok. then aim, and go up again then when you are the center of the track go to the left as you go towards the wall you use the brake with the bike straight stay at the curb from the start the brake with a straight bike, which is easier to enter It’s a beast. Hard? Holy shit by the end of the morning, at 16 5 I’m happy. Pole is 15 high/low depending on the days I’m suprised ok so in this rodeo with this R1 the biggest issue aside from getting used to it manage the rear which keeps pumping as soon as I hit the gas the rear goes so did a few adjustments, we left the pressure like that we worked on the mono a bit and now we change the spring with a softer on so the rear should be softer and this issue should be solved like the team manager says “it should copy the roughness” it should maybe it’s me the spring is softer. we put a lower hood and let’s see it if it goes wild again Ok we did the change, to the rear spring Now I did two hours of lunch break I’m relaxed. I’ve reset my mind. I’ve eaten And now back on the track to test the differences when you change direction you bring the bike to one side and in that moment, the bike goes where your eyes go you let go, you set up, look, and the bike follows Now I have to figure out if it’s normal that when I’m done with turns, the slow ones let’s say restarting like #11 over there when I go back straight and give gas is it normal for the rear to move? it’s not the norm it will always move but we have to tone it down so that it’s easier for you that’s the thing I think it was a bit better in the rear this time some feeling this time is growing Full gas, and the bike goes up and stays there 10-15 cm from the ground I don’t even realize ’cause I don’t feel it, and when I let go of the gas for the brake, it hits the ground suddenly I let go suddenly of the gas and my hands slipped So had to reach for the brake 10 meters later There are lots of escapes I realised, with this emergency brake, that I still had margin I’ve officially reached the end. I’m over I’m confused. I did two more sessions always on 16 4 and I’m at that phase where I don’t know where to get down I need someone stronger to pull me to let me understand where I’ve got margin when you learn to many things in one day at some point your mind is saturated. It’s too full and now right now that’s me Too many things on my mind. Like in college or school, 8 hrs straight of classes and at the end you can think straight So now I’ll stop and I’ll to reboot my mind metabolize what I’ve learnt the first impact with the race bike was traumatic who knew a race bike could be so violent and exhausting? Just 10 days to go before the first race the opponents are much more experienced than me and it’s not easy to learn so many things in so little time despite this, today I ran one second behind the pole position and I’m more than satisfied in 5 days I’ll have the official tests with all the other pilots of the championship and we’ll see then which are the really the values on the field.
