they need to do something, this 3rd gen bike is becoming a racing flop.

But why is the question...

Could Mat and Yoshimura bring it home?

I believe Mat or Ben could if they rode them. They have the knack of working out the bikes problems and telling their tuners what to do to make the bike better. I have no doubt that the 10R would be a winner in Mat or Ben's hands. Hell, I think they could take a Gen1 10R and stomp all the new bikes on the track today even with the bike's supposed problems.

i think so too, rider feedback is imperative and i dont know if kawi is 1. getting enough feedback 2. giving enough effort to increase ride ability or 3. just going through the motions to save money and still "race" to sell products

I think Jamie Hacking showed that the bike is quite competitive if it just had a good rider and team.
