AMA Supersport is 355lbs and crank hp is 140hp. Well the factory teams are. Privateer racers usually are down on power and up on weight. But those bikes are pretty well tuned also..

That guy. Another forum I'm on actually gives you a warring that you're about to bump an old thread.

Given the inverse square laws I can't believe these engine modifications give that much more speed. The take exponentially more power to go geometrically faster. An edge in racing perhaps, but only so.
