Snetterton BSB: 'I felt like I was a sitting duck' – Kennedy

Santander TAG Yamaha's Jack Kennedy had another difficult weekend at the Snetterton Bennetts British Superbike round with chatter giving him the feeling of being a sitting duck.

Both Kennedy and team-mate Dan Linfoot suffered badly with the issue and it forced the Yorkshireman to withdraw but Kennedy soldiered on with the problem that seems to pop up in different areas of the bike depending on what the team do to fix it in others.

"We’re still trying to work on our main issue that affects us in the race, me and the team have worked endlessly over the weekend to try and overcome this. We’ve made progress in some areas but in others it seems to come back, we fix it in one place and it occurs in another," said the Irishman.
“We have made progress though, everytime we went out I went quicker, race one on Sunday was probably the best the bike has felt, we still had chatter but I was just about able to ride around it. We made a slight change to make the bike better for race three, but it made the bike worse.
“I felt like I was going to crash if I stayed out, so there was no point in that and possibly hurting myself and damaging the bike for little points. I did feel good but once the chatter started I felt like I was a sitting duck. Hopefully we can get a little test in before Silverstone but there has to be an answer to this.”
