I've read in a few places that up until 2006 all SPS, S, and R superbikes came with Ti connecting rods (Pankl) is that true?

Not that I would notice the difference but just saying titanium makes me smile ...

Thanks Ducshop -

I meant (was quoting) up to 2006 so what ever the last iteration of the SPS was I guess, what would that be a, 98 916SPS?

'97 916 Does not. '98 916 does. I believe the '99 996 SPS does not.

I checked with my friend, Falloon: :)

'94 916 SP did have titanium rods.

'95 SP Steel rods.

'96 SP3 used steel except for the very rare '96 SPA (just 54 made to homologate for AMA Superbike--these were also the only bikes to ever come from the factory at 955cc.)

'97 SPS Steel rods.

'98 SPS Titanium.

'99 and '00 SPS's retained the Ti rods.

'01 996 R and '02 998 R each use titanium.

Turn your head sideways. H and I are the same thing (with respect to rods).
