Affected Discipline: Road Race

Rule Pertains to:

The use of aftermarket subframes

Current Rule in the 2018 Manual of Motorcycle Sport:

Currently, it is prohibited to replace the subframes as no rule exists in the Manual of Motorcycle Sport allowing for their replacement.

New Rule after Change:

9.17 Frames and Parts

19.17.1.7 Unless prohibited by individual class rules, the use of aftermarket hardware is permitted for the following purposes.

f) Subframes can be replaced with commercially available aftermarket replacements which are manufactured of the same material, and that allow for all components to be located within same area as OEM.

Relocation of any component originally housed within the subframe is prohibited.

Rationale:

OEM replacement subframes can be very expensive for a component that can be easily damaged during a crash. There is no advantage to be gained from using aftermarket subframes that fit the above specifications, and this change serves only to bring down the cost of racing.

Rule change effective from: Immediately

Jennings (Photojournalist), who is a big The X-Files fan (what the X stands for in KAJX) and motorcycling fan. “I am extremely passionate about motorcycles and have been riding a motorcycle since I was 4 years old. I was introduced to the world of motocross racing in 1998 and haven’t looked back. Everyone should experience motorcycling whether it be a rider, passenger, racer, official or spectator. KAJX is all about sharing the motorcycling love. I am honest, opinioned and if I don't know something I will say so and then educate myself to provide an answer. Living is learning. I worked as a Motorcycle Spare Parts Manager for 15 years, have an Outdoor Power Equipment qualification, been a photojournalist since 2002, have dabbled with computer code most of my life, have many skills now working on the qualifications. KAJX anything, photography, photojournalism, podcasting is a one girl show a genuine privateer with no sponsorship, I do what I can when I can.” Kendall Jennings.
