        The area in which the difference is made is in unsprung weight and very slight reduction in centripetal farces forces - but you wont see any benefit unless you are heading to the track - it's when you need maximum wheel contact with a rapidly undulating road that the difference will be made - basically the suspension can maintain the surface area of the tyre in contact with the road and the force on that tyre much less erratic manner.

        Forged rims will make a massive amount of difference as the weight saving and the related reduction in centripetal forces are much larger - in terms of track gain this modification will probably decrease you lap times more than a full exhaust etc (allowing for suspension adjustment to accommodate the change too)

            think of it as throwing the chain overarm by holding one end. If the chain is lighter its easier. A standard chain and sprockets for an 09 R1 weighs 3.69 kilos, if the 520 chain is 700grams lighter it would make a noticiible difference to performance in rate of acceleration
