Since theres no air-oil cooled section, it falls under air-cooled

Section C. Formula Xtreme
3. Twin-cylinder air-cooled motorcycles:
Engine modifications are unlimited




4. Multi-cylinder and liquid-cooled twin-cylinder motorcycles:
The following engine components may not be altered from the
originally approved model except as noted:
a. Engine type, configuration, stroke and any modifications of
engine components to alter the stock OEM firing order of the
cylinders are not permitted.
b. Stock crankshaft
1. Bearing surfaces may be polished or surface treated.
2. Balancing is permitted only by the same method used by
the OEM. For example, heavy metal (i.e. Mallory metal)
inserts are not permitted unless they were originally specified
by the OEM.
3. Attachment of aftermarket ignition components or sensors
is permitted.
4. Primary gears cannot be changed or modified.
c. Stock cylinders, cylinder heads and crankcases.
1. Machining, welding and the addition of material are permitted
2. Cylinder liners or coatings may be replaced or added.
d. Aftermarket or modified valves, springs, retainers and other
valve-train components are permitted. The original number of
valves must be maintained.
1. Valve diameter, including stem, must remain stock.
2. Valves must be made of the same basic material as the
OEM valves. This restriction does not apply to twin cylinder
engines.
3. Valves must remain in the same location and at the same
angle as originally installed by the OEM.
e. Aftermarket camshafts are permitted.
1. Cam lift and the resulting valve lift must be no greater than
stock. This restriction does not apply to twin cylinder
engines.
2. Aftermarket cam drive components are permitted, but must
be in the same engine location as the OEM drive.


g. Transmission shafts and gear sets
Two options are available for these components:
1. Stock transmission shafts and gear sets
Undercutting and surface treatments are the only modifications
allowed.
2. Approved transmission shafts and gear sets
Each manufacturer will be permitted one alternative set of
gear ratios per approved model. Approved shafts and
gears may be interchanged with stock components.
Undercutting and surface treatments are the only modifications
allowed. Only shafts and gears sold through the OEM
distributor or its dealers are permitted.
a. Approved transmission component must be available
individually or as a set to AMA Superbike-licensed riders
for the entire current season (or the remaining part
of the season). Orders determined to be legitimate by
AMA Pro Racing and accompanied by a 50% deposit
must be filled within 15 business days of receipt by the
OEM distributor or dealer.
b. Retail price of individual approved transmission components
may not exceed twice the manufacturer's suggested
retail price of the components they replace. If a
manufacturer does not offer optional AMA-approved
transmission components, then the stock components
must be retained.
h. Fuel injection throttle-body assemblies
1. Assemblies include all attached parts with the exception of
fasteners, cables, cable actuating pulleys, flexible fuel lines,
vacuum lines, air box connection tubes and velocity stacks.
2. Variable-length fuel injection intake tract devices that function
while the engine is operating are prohibited.
3. The stock OEM throttle body sub-assemblies must be utilized.
a. Modifications are not permitted to the following controlled
components:
1. Intake bore castings and associated housings
2. Butterfly valves and shafts
3. Non-flexible fuel rails


b. Fuel injectors may be replaced with aftermarket units
provided the original mounting locations are maintained
and no modifications are made to the throttle body
assembles for injector fitment. The total number of
installed injectors must be the same as originally produced.
c. Secondary butterfly valves may be fixed in the open
position.
d. All other fuel injection system components may be modified
or replaced with aftermarket items.
i. Intake air boxes
Stock air boxes are required with only the following modifications
permitted:
1. Air filters, internal flap type valve, sensors and vacuum fittings
may be modified, replaced with aftermarket parts or
removed. Any holes in the air box to the outside atmosphere
resulting from the removal of components must be
completely sealed from incoming air. All incoming air must
pass through the original, unmodified air box inlets.
2. Ram air tubes or ducts may be modified, replaced with
aftermarket parts or removed. If tubes/ducts are utilized,
they must be attached to the original, unmodified air box
inlets.
3. Velocity stacks may be modified, replaced with aftermarket
parts or removed. The only modification permitted to the air
box to allow use of alternate velocity stacks is the removal
of internal debris deflectors/plates. Variable-length fuel
injection intake tract devices that function while the engine
is operating are prohibited.



My only question is,"Why havent they been winning all year long?"

They havent been winning because the engines keep breaking, at least thats what I read. Hope they fixed the problems.

not true, a lot of factors and no one expects them to win. its their first season racing while honda has been racing for ages. this season has been to work out the kinks and major changes have been made since the first XBRR was raced. this week a new muffler is being tested on Jeremy's XBRR. Its a major achievement tpo have finished in top 10 in laguna with a new bike and its racer that was his first time at the track and had only a few hours to rest before he had to do his qualifying race.
a lot of people are putting a lot of hard work to make this great bike.

there has been many reason and not all engine prolems. a lot of development changes have been done and continue to be made.
i think a top ten finish at laguna was a great achievement under the circumstances.
on todays race another change was been made and ti will be tested.
this is no differetn then when the US started making 4 cylinder cars, we sucked at first while the jappas had been making 4 cylinders for a long time. they fixed all the bugs and there cars were better then ours, not any more. our 4 cylinders are just as good as theirs.
unfortunatlly the japps 8 cylinders are still crap and cant compete with US V8s.
its liek their NIssan Titan, a ford F150 would tare that truck appart.
lol
Buell will get there. patience and will to do it will triumph.

oh how we turn a blind eye to Toyotas entry into the Craftsman Truck Series. Aside from the fact that they won 4 out of 25 races and 25 top-5 finishes in their first year...aside from that, they suck.

But what about the 05 season?? 9 wins and 13 pole positions.

This year?? Currently ranked #1 with 10wins. You can check out all of their win ads on the Toyota.com website
