They were only a half second off Stoner's race pace, so get some facts before you start spouting off.

You can word it how you want, but the fact is that with that time the BMW would have qualified on the 2nd row at the Jerez round, ahead of 2 hondas, 2 yamahas and 3 ducatis.

A "motor" was pretty much just a rebuild-- not a completely new motor... I read that in an earlier link.

There would be hot chicks in this signature if the site would let me.

I recently read that the rebuilds meant new cases every 2-3 "rebuilds", new heads at least every other. Cranks, con rods, and cams as needed but usually not more than 4 races. So, those engines really didn't last too long.
