    , but have some questions after seeing that.... stock brakes/ wheels/ forks? I really like the paint job with Triumph on the side like that...

    Superstock strictly limits the allowable modifications. Don't quote me on this but I think they have to use the stock wheels, fork castings (can change the internal valving), calipers, etc and the frames and engines have to be production items. Note the wave rotors and I'm sure racing pads.

    That is sweet. It looks a lot like stock. I hope it goes well this season.

    They also use a different steering damper and this one has an Arrow Exhaust. Don't know about the rear suspension but it will be fun researching...

    FIM Superstock Cup machines must also have four stroke engines of between 600 and 1000 cc for four cylinder machines, between 750 and 1000 cc for triples, or between 850 and 1200 for twins. Minimum weight is decided by the FIM at the time of homologation and is equivalent to the dry weight of the roadgoing model minus 15 kilograms.
    Some FIM Superbike, Superstock and Supersport rules can be found here: www.roadracingworld.com/news/article/?next=yes&article=24556

    Many of the parts on the bike must be as manufactured. Wiring harness, for example, can have unneeded wires removed, as long as there is no cutting of the harness. Fork tubes are as stock, as are brakes, but internal valving can be replaced. Cams cannot be touched - they have to be as the factory supplied.
