DMG SuperStock Class?

I read that the DMG is looking to add a Super Stock type class for the 1000 cc class.
I understand that they are allowed front fork kits, rear shocks, pipes, and ECU but that's it.

I don't know the difference between Super Bike and Super Stock. Do the Super Bikes have engine modifications and adders that aren't allowed in Super Stock racing?
Where do I find out the differences?

Thanks...

I don't know the specifics. But I do know they are two DIFFERENT worlds of classes.

Superstock- Out of the box with adjustments to chassis and a few other things only. Aftermarket suspension and brake systems are in play. I'm not sure if they are allowed to play around with the electronics or not.

Superbike- Pretty much the entire bike is fair game. They change out anything they can for aftermarket parts. Engine adjustments such as gear ratios and valve adjustments are in play. I do know however they are restricted to some regulations. Like shaving down certain engine parts is a no no. They may have to stay within some weight limits, but I don't know for sure. One of the full blooded racers on the forum could probably explain all this in better detail.......I just watch and learn what I can from reading and talking to others. There are others around here who have followed the sport a lot longer then I. Differences in what fuels/fuel systems are allowed also seperate the two as well.

In a nut shell, Superstock is for the most part ecxactly that....."stock". Superbike is a un-holy beast with the industries best parts and the sports best set-ups on the machine. The next best thing to MotoGP.......the first bikes to see prototype material, commercialized and on their way to us peons.

I hope this helps draw a better picture for ya.......but then again I'm not the most educated feller on the issue.
