@talentfan The reasoning behind the rules is to conflicted were told that the technology from gp will be fed back to our streetbikes. 1. Engine limit rule: streetbikes are already powerful beyond ones need for a streetbike but powerful enough for amatuer racers superstock is only a few seconds slower than WSBK on street tyres. The engine limit in GP only works in favour of the best engine manufacturer with extensive r&d budgets. CRT may actually and a chance if they only had to let one engine last a race might be more expensive than making 12 engines last 18 races but it isn't that expensive given only so much power can effectively be put to the ground on a bike. 2. Which brings me to electronics. Now I'm not entirely against them only in there current form however I'd like to see them a little more basic than they currently are. For example how is setting the ecu maps, tc, wheelie control etc for each corner gonna be fed back to streetbikes. A gyroscopic tc, wheelieontrol that limits
