It's not often that a championship-winning superbike goes under the microscope for all to see. With the amount of research, development and testing that each time goes through to get the upper hand on their competition, it's obvious why teams would want to keep their secrets to themselves. But with the current homologation rules under the current AMA Pro Racing regime, there are no more secrets. Here, Dave Moss of Catalyst Reaction Suspension gets intimate with Mat Mladin's 2009 GSX-R1000 American Superbike. Dave gives us a tour of the superbike's trick bits and design, most of which would be valuable on a normal bike too.
