AMA Liter Bike Rules

Take a look //http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2008/May/080529e4.htm looks like a cross between current superbike rules and superstock seems like the big difference is in the front suspension. From the reading looks like the trick forks are no longer allowed also haven't seen any hp restrictions. The 09 season is going to be interesting to say the least.

It's Not denial, I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

Good catch on the horse power limit............wondering if this will drive the manufactures to start producing the "special edition" bikes like in the 90s, i.e. ZX-7RR, RC-45, YZF750RR etc. If the bikes come stock with the "good" suspension then it opens the door for the internal mods as the rules state. Seems like the AMA is going down a road they've already traveled.

What size wheels do they currently use? 17" or 16.5"'s?

New rules are 17" only....

I think the intent is for the manufacturers to NOT make "homologation specials".

The AMA has not gone down the HP/weight route before, but Canadian Superbike has, and that's where Colin Fraser comes from. The max HP / min weight / spec tire situation has worked okay here.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!
