Our team is relatively new to the sport above a local level, but the decision has been made to move almost entirely to stock honda and more or less abanbon TaG and Yamaha. While the buy-in on the stock hondas is considerably higher, so is the reliabilty. Maintenance costs are lower (22 races this season on 2 pistons and the same clutch) and multiple sanctioning bodies seem to agree what comprises a “stock honda”. While we might have to change an airbox or silencer series to series, at least we can run the same powerplant. This decision should help end the disappointment associated with finding out that $20k worth of engines purchased one season are not only not legal for the following season but also essentially worthless on the used market. Shifters all around for 2015!
