Wait a minute. They're saying that if a manufacturer supported team ran the control ECU they'd get the 4 litres of fuel back? Surely not! A Tech 3 Yamaha with a control ECU and 4 extra litres of fuel would be considerably quicker than the factory bike over race distance. The fuel cap doesn't limit just outright performance but makes the bikes harder to ride as they have be to be 'leaned off' when not on the throttle. Must be a mistake. I thought it was simply a rule for CRT teams. If you put your engine up for claiming then you're allowed extra gas to level the playing field.
