Quote from: Gino230 on October 25, 2011, 12:34:30 PMIt seems like the rules are MORE important for the smaller (LW, MW) classes, where a small advantage could make a big difference in lap time. The big bikes have so much HP, the rules matter a little less...for most of us mere mortals anyway.The rules are important though, as someone else pointed out, it's the only thing keeping blatant cheating from going on. SS is an important class, it allows riders on a budget to be competitive in at least one class. Big HP is expensive, especially down here in FL where big HP also usually comes with gas charged forks, carbon wheels, etc....

Quote from: twilkinson3 on October 27, 2011, 01:18:26 PMAgreed - most of the "prblems" are the rule set....I honestly think it costs more to have/build a competitive LW SS bike than a MW SS bike...
Quote from: Gino230 on October 27, 2011, 03:30:30 PMMostly because there just isn't that many bikes being built that fit in the LW category. Despite that, there will always be someone who will build the bikes to the maximum that the rules allow....I didn't hear much complaining when the SV came out and started destroying all of the Honda Hawks, Aprillia 250's, EX 500's, etc. Besides, the SV should be pretty dominant in ULW, right?
