Re: Looks like a Suzuki kind of year

One factor is that WSB forces all competitors to use the same fuel (the same stuff that you might run your bike on) while WSB is much more liberal with fuel; there are some potent fuels available (like Nutec). Road Racing World had an interesting test of a Suzuki GSX-R750 that showed considerable power increase with Nutec (like 10 or 15 hp via fuel and mapping alone). It may be that the Suzuki motors have better cylinder head designs and have an advantage with better fuel. In another RRW article, Ducati representatives claimed that the new 998 motor would make more horsepower under AMA rules that WSB rules mostly on account of the liberal fuel rules. I thnk that Nutec GP-2 costs like $25 per gallon so you might not want to run in your street bike. :cool:
