"I stripped the bike down and, basically, it was in good order," Jamieson said. "The engine was quite fresh when it was given to Kevin; it was just a case of a little bit of corrosion in some of the magnesium on the water system. I repaired those things, and the bike fired up straight away."Schwantz rode the Suzuki briefly at Barber Motorsports Park, re-familiarizing himself with the engine's abrupt, narrow powerband and, more importantly, the old-style carbon front brakes. "The material needs some temperature to work," explained Jamieson. "If you ride the bike slowly, it feels like the brakes aren't working." Of the Michelin slicks, he said, "The tires are new, not old stock. What was important is that they had the same profile, so the bike would feel the same."
