ccs rules

anyone know off the top of your head if you can modify sub frame with CCS supersport rules? Ive got access to a CNC machine and Im itching to design a new lighter sub frame for the GSXR600.

I think you need a third bike for tolerance and accuracy purposes. I'll man up and donate my bike for the cause

I believe it to be this way as well.

I don't think there is a huge amount to be gained from making your own subframe. It's definitely not worth the time to machine something your likely to damage in a crash. I cut mine from rectangular aluminum tube. Weld it go with it. Much easier and much cheaper.

CCS always looks at Airbox and tires. except for the times I forget to tech

Greg, you the same guy that says it's easier to paint. I painted last year. I want to learn something else. And as far as "I got access to a CNC machine" I want to design and make something.... Kevin Hanson says there were several after market sub frames already. I thought it would be easy to fabricate a rear frame or two. Case covers are boring and should be made of nylon anyways. Theres and idea.

What you guys got for fabrication?
