    Cant type the entire thing so here are bullets
    pre Austrian MXGP Jacky Martens testing new computerized ignition on his big 4 stroke, laptop tunable direct from the Ducati WSB racing dept. Jacky says he will not race yet with it, its too prototypical he needs points. Bike went from a fast 575cc to a faster long stroker 633cc engine. bike is now 231lbs just over the minimum and about the same weight as a CR500 Honda. Ti shock springs and Ti brake discs along with most all hardware. cool stuff from 93 season.
