If they dumped the "rider" part of the rule the remaining sections will still apply from what I undertand. I believe that the point is to make sure that the power to weight when calculated after the race are within a certain horsepower limit. That limit I believe is 135-140rwhp. The wheels are significant because they are stock equipment on Ducatis and will have to be on the "available" parts list for Buell. ANYTHING that has stipulations still have to follow the "availability" rules. It's just a matter of how much time was given in the stipulations. There must be a timeline for Buell to follow here. That goes for the suspension, too. The internals will be available to ANYONE willing to pay for them. Problem with the Buell was that no one developed the parts fast enough for the season to get them to market. Thus, Buell was given a bye until the supplier can make the parts available to the masses.

Dr Sprocket- All motorcycles racing have to have two things done to be homogolated: 1- they must meet a minimum build number (mostly I think that number is over 1000 now, but it used to be as low as 100). 2- Every OEM part must be mapped and logged then the "approved" replacement part must be documented in order to comply. Meaning- they send 1 stock bike from every manufacturer to the race sanctioning body. After it is determined that all parts are stock and they meet the "build" number then you have a compliant bike.

Thanks, Acecycleins! Good information. I always knew you were a good guy.

Apparently longride's camera spent most of the week facing the ground or the sky. Either that or it got traded for a pair of pink armchaps.

Buzglyd didn't have time to take pictures either. He was kept too busy selling and installing fake road grime and bug hits at the mega trailer park 50 miles to the north.
