AMA Bike Restrictions

Please forgive my ignorance, but I've really been getting into AMA racing on the speed channel, and I was wondering what the restrictions were on the bikes? Like whats the difference between Formula Extreme and Supersport? And what are the teams allowed to do on Superbike and Superstock? Tire restrictions? Octane restrictions? And just general modifacations? I read something about restricting the air flow on the inline 4's, to make the V-Twins have a better chance, or even allowing the twins to have a 1200cc limit in 1000cc races. Also what are some differences in MotoGP Restrictions compared to AMA? If any of you are knowledgeable in this, please let me know something, I would appreciate Professional racing alot more if I understood it better.

Thanks in advance...

If you go further down, it explains the engine displacements and generalities of each class.

Welcome to the addiction. Basicly Superbikes are haevely modded factory machines but staying with in factory specs. Formula is race what you brung. Althought the AMA is looking closely at what classes they are going to continue to carry forward in the future.

If you watch AMA races on TV, look out for the Texas Boys Randall Kienast, Bryan West, Ty Howard, John Haner, and Okie boy Tyler McDonald. Of course, also Ben Spies.

A few of them also race in the local CMRA races and show up regularily. Ty is also with Ridesmart doing trackschool. Kienast, Schwantz, Ty and Haner were in an endurance race last fall at Texas World Speedway (CMRA) race. It was really cool and makes it more personal. Maybe they'll do it again this year after the season is over. They were smoking out there.

Ty makes a few of the AMA Formula Extreme races but unfortunately, not too many. Kienast, West, Haner (44) and McDonald (120) and of course Spies are sure-fire attendees and I always look for them.

Haner did really good at the AMA race in the rain a couple of weeks ago. If hadn't been blacked flagged for a stupid misunderstanding by the cornerworkers, he would've been close to Ben Spies in the top. It sucked.
