"For events held entirely in these trickier conditions, a heavier flywheel weight is used to help the rear Dunlop find traction."
So much for reducing reciprocating mass to make the bike feel lighter !

Flywheel weight is only part of the equation there. The piston, con rod and crank all play a part as well. Bigger displacement means more weight for all those components, and more reciprocating mass affecting handling.

Midlifecrisisguy doesn't have a battery/starter/etc... he might be able to do it.

I've seen Stefan race Six Days before. It's insane what he and the other top Euros can do on a bike in the nastiest conditions that are nearly impossible to walk let alone race on. That bike is awesome!
