While he was on Kawasaki he seemed unstoppable did the break from monster energy Kawasaki and going in a different direction hurt him results wise?

Financially he probably cane out fine just results wise.

Stewart staying on Kawasaki

I'm going to go out on a limb and say the 16 MONTH SUSPENSION hurt his momentum..

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

Most are missing the point. Stewart had a lot of momentum after his perfect outdoor season and left the team because he was a red bull athlete on a monster sponsored kawasaki team. Would his career be different if he had stayed on the Kawasaki? I think it would

Up until 2007. In ‘06 he was Red Bull but ‘07 began the Monster relationship during the middle of his contract with the Team, which ended in 2008.

That wasn’t the only reason behind him leaving. Notably his dad telling everyone that the team was trying to kill James with the bike...even though he was in the middle of the perfect season and yes, the team restricted his input on setup...but notably so because they knew he would take the bike off into the wrong direction. So typically he was given a few settings to try and had to pick one.

Management-wise, James and his father were not getting along with Fisher at the end. Regardless of the Monster deal, I think he woulda left anyhow.

The thread title is a bit ludicrous. I’m not sure how an energy drink sponsor would affect performance other than sponsorship dollars to help put the team on the track, and the number of zeroes it adds to the rider’s bank account.

I thought more people would understand what I was getting at. Thanks. I think if he would have stayed on the Kawasaki he would have had more championships and wins.

I was thinking it prettty much forced him off Kawasaki since they were going with monster.

I don’t think he ever rode as great as he did when he was on green.

That tank of a Kawi 450 had nothing to do with his success or failure. He got caught up in his self. JS entertainment lol Take his talent level and give him Dungey or Carmichael’s mindset/work ethic. Sky woulda been the limit. He got in his own way. That sounds really negative, he was very successful. Racing wise he could have been more though.

He was good on the 09 Yamaha. Then came the radically redesigned 2010 YZF and I think that’s when it went downhill. Finally got some mojo back when he went to Suzuki, and not long after that came the whole TUE ordeal and the rest is history.
