World Superbike Championship rider Troy Corser cannot explain why his bike lacks grip - all he knows is that his Ohlins forks are not the problem.

The BMW Motorrad rider again struggled for grip at the second round of the series at Donington Park last weekend, only managing to finish 9th and 13th in the two races.

His team have been working overtime to get the back ready for the season, but Corser still does not have the speed to compete with the likes of Carlos Checa and Marco Melandri.

However, the veteran Australian rider knows that his suspension system is fine.

"I do not think that it is a suspension problem. The Ohlins forks are working well and the rear shock is working overtime, so it's got be somewhere else," he said.

British rider Jonathan Rea also struggled at Donington, with the Castrol Honda rider realising his bike just does not have the straight-line speed to compete with the front runners.
