1. better torsional and flexural suspension characteristics, for improved traction, improved cornering control and early power download out of corners,
2. lower vehicle kerb weight
3. lower gyroscopic weights and lower unsprung weights, which improve acceleration, road holding and bike handling, specially for what it concerns fast angle changes.
4. looks

Come on dude. . . i thought ya knew better. That's not a trackbike, it's ridden daily on the street. the owner of Borderline Customs up somewhere in Canaduh owns that bike. Has all sorts of other manufacturers parts. Nice lookin 92 7R though, that's for sure.

in theory anyway, and at track speeds. Prolly doesn't apply at around town speeds.

Sure? What's the actual weight of the 2 arms? Even though it's one sided, they usually have a massive base and thicker arm.

and maybe 5) faster wheel changes in the daytona 200 or endurance racing :dontknow:
