    in fairness its not just susuki, they are all at it. everyone is jumping on the MotoGP stubby look, but by the time they get them to pass emissions etc they all go a bit bonkers.

    Really like the tail unit on the GSXRs though.

    I was reading that they under tune bikes to pass emissions. something to do with playing around with fueling.

    I have noticed they have all started going a bit hay wire with the zorsts. VFR1200 is the weirdest.

    Yeah they play with the fueling to ensure it passes. There is a noticeable power drop at around 5500rpm on a standard CBR600F cos that is the rev range they test the engine emissions iirc.

    Forutnately a race can, a powercommander and a K&N filter sort that problem right out :cool:
