"Big changes were what he felt was needed to make the Yamaha competitive. They were chasing half a second, and that would not come from minor refinements, he said. He had new forks which felt a little better, but the biggest problem is that they needed a big step forward in electronics to gain more drive out of the corners. The Yamaha is fast enough when you run wide sweeping lines and carry lots of corner speed, but as soon as you get caught up in a battle with another rider, you would lose out, he said. If they could find more drive grip, he felt he could be in the fight."

Oops, sorry, wrong thread, that's Alex Lowes, talking about the WSBK Yamaha.

Maybe the MotoGP guys should be nice kids and give back the sparky they stole.

All I've seen so far shows it as a full-floating rear brake, similar to what some Monsters and SSs had.

The trick may be in *where* it is attached, as it may be able to provide pro-squat and anti-squat at different points in the suspension travel.

The only pic I've seen doesn't seem to have it attached to the caliper, but rather an aluminum bracket attached to the swingarm. Photos aren't that clear.
