Andrea Dovizioso has swapped suspension supplier for the rest of the MotoGP season, beginning with the San Marino GP at Misano this weekend.
The factory Honda rider has swapped from Showa to Ohlins shocks after sampling the latter's parts in the post-race test at Brno last month.
Showa has consented to Dovizioso's move, which the HRC team says is part of the development plan for the Honda RC212V.
Pedrosa, who set the pace all weekend last time out at Indianapolis, will continue to use Showa suspension.
Not a good news for Pedrosa, hopefully his bike doesn't go with Ohlins as he has done pretty good with Showa this year
