Really? Pff. I didn't know that. So even if the bike doesn't come with a slipper clutch, you can add one (like on the Honda). And you can add aftermarket rotors, like say Braking rotors? I raced with CCS this past year and didn't even know that.
Those are a couple expensive mods I'm glad aren't WERA legal, as it saved me a bunch of money (slipper's applying more towards SV's and the like, not modern bikes which most have them). What about brembo master cylinders on the GSXR?
So then, if the SSTK rules allow those mods, why so strict on not allowing an aftermarket air filter that removes the snorkel?
yup. ccs allows brembo aftermarket radial master cylinders.. wera doesn't.
Even if ccs did allow the snorkel to be removed, they would still do tech to verify there IS an air filter of some sort.. i never understood why someone would do it, but apparently some feel NO air filter is a performance advantage and it is what tech officials are looking for.. in addition to a snorkel being on the r6 filter.
I talked with a tech guy today, and going to verify it with Garry tomorrow at the track. The BMC removable snorkel, if in place, makes it supersport legal. So you can run the OEM r6 filter, or get the BMC and just order it with the snorkel that is held in place with 4 small screws (got mine from STT Eddie).
The performance advantage WITHOUT the snorkel is significant.. On our dyno we saw nearly 3hp even before mapping changes. That was a simple back to back run with the snorkel, then without. Eric Dorn said he has seen even more, same with Kevin at KWS.
