Plenty of new parts for Honda duo
Casey Stoner will use a new engine at the United States Grand Prix while Dani Pedrosa will have a new chassis.
The Repsol Honda duo sampled the RC213V during the test at Mugello last week and defending World Champion Stoner was not too impressed with the new frame.
"There were no benefits, only disadvantages compared to the standard bike so I am not interested to try it further," the Australian said.
Honda have listened to his complaints and decided not to give him a new chassis for this weekend's race at Laguna Seca.
"HRC have worked hard in Japan to provide us with the new engine and some parts from the test, hopefully we can have three dry sessions to get some work done and be competitive for Sunday, but we'll have to wait until we get on track," he said.
The 26-year-old, who is third in the standings, added: "I always look forward to going to Laguna, it's a circuit we've enjoyed quite good results at and the atmosphere there is fantastic," he said.
"It's definitely a positive that it goes around to the left, as we have less chatter on the left hand side.
Meanwhile, Pedrosa is optimistic the team will do well following the improvements to the bikes.
"I'm really looking forward to racing in Laguna Seca. Honda has made a big effort to bring the new parts to Laguna so we'll have our standard bike but we'll also get the new engine and chassis we tested in Mugello and I hope we can take advantage of these improvements and have another good race," he said.
"Laguna is very small, bumpy and technical - it's a very particular track, nothing like what we are used to in Europe. Last year it was a very hard race for me due to the lack of fitness, so I hope to enjoy riding there again as we did in the past."
