I was wondering if someone could explain the way weight has an effect on horsepower

IE 2 riders on identical bikes (same HP & CC) but each rider weighing different weights say 1 weighing 60kgs and 1 weighing 100kgs.

So how much horepower does the 100kg rider give away to the 60kg rider

and how many 0.00 seconds would there be difference over a 1/4 mile given they both had perfect runs.

It would show why some 750cc riders with less horspower and weight beat 1000cc riders with more horsepower and weight down the 1/4 mile.

Thanks
