Motorcycle News (UK) - - TT 2017 PREVIEW -

Un­like the su­per­bike class, su­per­sport teams are quite re­stricted in what they can tune on their ma­chines. The chas­sis is largely to su­per­stock spec­i­fi­ca­tion, and the bikes even have to run treaded tyres. Teams can change the cams and work on the cylin­der head, but can’t do much more than that.

The sus­pen­sion and brakes can be changed, with MCAMS Yamaha run­ning K-tech race fork in­ter­nals and shock, and the ex­haust can also be changed – MCAMS run a fac­to­ry­sup­plied, unique Akrapovic sys­tem on their all-new R6. They also run a larger ra­di­a­tor.

Kit elec­tron­ics can be run, but Yamaha’s lat­est kit ECU hasn’t been ho­molo­gated for use yet, so MCAMS are stick­ing with Motec this year.

Su­per­sport bikes have near­stan­dard en­gines
