Superbike racing, different rules for each country?

Discussion in 'Racing, Motorsports, and Track Days' started by removed-6, Apr 1, 2008.

  1. Why is it that superbike racing seems to have a different dominant brand in every country? Are the rules different? eg, AMA=Suzuki, ASC=Yamaha, WSBK=Ducati?, BSB=??
    Would Mladdin's Suzuki whip Giles' Suzuki? Would Haga's Yamaha flog Stauffer's?

  2. Yep, the rules differ here and there. Mladins bike will whip Giles bike. Hagas bike will whip Stauffer etc.
  3. wsbk is the most highly modified, with ama and bsb being similar if i understand correctly. aus sbk is the least modified of the lot, i think it has a lot to do with the money involved in each series, ama and bsb both having a lot more money involved in them that the aussie sbk.
  4. IIRC in the ASC they add Power commanders, exhausts, filters etc, then modify the suspension but keep the stock fork tubes.
