Ok, racing LW in CCS since 85. LWSS-DB 6? Monoblocks, Superbike spec stuff in Supersport? I dont get it. 1000s in LW?  It would be cheaper to buy a AMA Superbike than run LWSS. The DB 6 make everything obsolete, and its not like they are readily available. Hey its a cool bike but should it be legal in SS? CCS please review the LW class.

Is that what you guys said about monoshocks.     Sorry had to think of something. The problem in fla is not the bike as much as kevin is a really good rider.  And there does not seem to be a lack of them down here.legalize my 748 and that will take the heat off those bimotas lol

Well in this case it's Charlie Mavros. The DB6 is definitely trick, and Duane made a good point on the Jennings forum that they aren't really available. But they were at some point so.....

As always there is going to be someone willing to spend big bucks....what can you do?

The DB 6 is the 800 with all the trick stuff that is somehow legal for LWSS. The 5 is the 1000. Thats the way I understand it.

I have no idea where you get the 800cc from. Maybe the ministry of misinformation?

Actually both the DB5 and the DB6 use the 1100 engine. Both are legal for LWSS. The DB6 is simply a nekked DB5.

No, the DB6 is also a 1000 (or maybe 1100, the Hypermotard engine.... I'm not sure) but was originally a "naked" bike version of the DB5. I'm not sure the exact differences, but I think that is why Mavros runs that GSXR fairing on his. There's nobody that makes bodywork for the thing.

Unfortunately it fits within the rules so it's legal.

That being said he only went .25 second faster than my 1000 and that is completely SS legal, so maybe it's not as big of an advantage as we think. Charlie is the only one running a Bimota in SS, everyone else we've been referring to here are running Thunderbike or Supersport.

I would like to see the LW rules changed around a bit, maybe limit the displacement to 1000 cc (instead of 1200 big bore kits) The 1200 rule was for Buells, and should really be push rod only.

Be happy you're not trying to race a Bimota on a WERA SUPERSTOCK legal SV....

A Bimota 800 would be nice.

Excellent 800 and the price is warranted. To build one it will cost more. mine cost me $10K to build and the bottom end was not touched.

I see now the 125GP will be legal in Ultralight.

Now a question; with the 250GP now legal in Thunderbike does this now allow it in LW F40? And will the Thunderbike legalbikes now be legal in the LW GP class?
