Stuff is getting real now.
Still don't have Supplemental Regs back from FIM yet but they can't be too far away.

Only thing holding up my Licence application at the moment is the Electrocardiogram which is booked in a fortnights time,,

The 12 now has a turbocharger hanging around out front,, although I have full A bodywork, it will be running naked as I don't wont to be chasing possible handling problems, and wish to concentrate on the engine tune,, will run 1350 M/BF at our DLRA event, and 1.A1.A 11.3+ at the FIM gig 8)

The IMN is the FIM registration number for the event. You will need it to complete your entry form which is part of the support regs.

Haven't heard anything from Leslie so far. I see Valerie Thompson has a go-fund-me page to finance her trip. Looking for $20.000US

Ruedi is coming to Australia on the 6th of Nov to finalise a few things and check out the lake. Also got Kody from the Target 550 team out here as well. Big thanks to Michael Brixton and Peter Noy for hosting them in Adelaide and taking them out to the lake.

Any idea who to talk to on tech stuff , prefer to be the person who will be at the meeting , Charles maybe ??

reason for asking is i need new leathers and want airbag type (that first bounce was pretty rough ), the airbag has a hump which hold for the electronics and gas canister
Depending on interpretation it may not be allowed on a naked bike ???

Well Ronnie It appears we will both be attempting the same class in the FIM event , sadly the FIM rules are not as generous as the DLRA/ SCTA regarding the permissible oversize for bore wear of 20 thou ( 0.508 mm), after measuring mine( I have used the permissible 20 thou)it comes out at 1011cc from 998cc, where as FIM max is 1003 cc,1 tenth of a mm per bore so for a pis ant 8 cc,s I get booted up to the 1350 class which places me at a severe disadvantage :(

Question If one enters a class say 1000 cc and its found that the limit is exceeded is the entry disqualified or bumped up a class???

Gary, 8cc that's a bummer,, mate, for a quick/cheap fix could you desleeve one pot ? the speedway boys used to do that on those old motors, just as long as the pistons weigh the same it wont be a problem,,

Thanks Ronnie and Greg :) I have neither the time or money to reinvent the wheel for a lousy 8cc's, (new block or liners and pistons) I will either not attempt the event and save a motza or enter in the 1350 class.
