GENERAL
a. Amendments to the technical regulations may be made by the Alpe Adria Road
Racing Commission at any time.
b. Each rider can pass the Technical Control with one motorcycle only. The
Technical Stewards should re-inspect any motorcycle that has been involved in
any accident, and if it is necessary to issue a new technical control sticker for a
rebuilt motorcycle. If a motorcycle is completely damaged, the Chief Technical
Steward can allow the rider to pass the Technical Control with a second
motorcycle. But at any time of the event only one motorcycle per rider and class
is allowed.
c. During practices: If a motorcycle is found not to be in conformity with the
technical regulations during or after the practices, its rider will be given a
penalty for the event such as a ride-through, a drop of any number of grid
positions for the next race, suspension and/or withdrawal of Championship or
Cup points.
d. After a race: If a motorcycle is found not to be in conformity with the technical
regulations after a race, its rider will be given a penalty such as time penalty or
disqualification.
e. If during the practice sessions or the race itself a Technical Steward states a fault in a
motorcycle that could represent a danger for the other riders, he must immediately inform
the Clerk of the Course.
Random technical controls may be carried out during practices and at the end of practices
in the technical control area.
The rider is at all times responsible for his motorcycle.

not allowed with the following exceptions: Local specific reinforcements made of Kevlar or
Kevlar-carbon is allowed around the holes and other stressed points.
c. Overall size and dimensions must be the same as the original parts, with a tolerance of
+/- 10 mm, respecting the design and features of the homologated fairing as far as
possible. The overall width of the frontal area may be +10 mm maximum. The decision of
the Chief Technical Steward is final.
d. Wind screen may be replaced with an aftermarket product. The height of the windscreen is
free, with a tolerance of + 40 mm (FIM +/- 15 mm) measured on the vertical distance
from to the upper fork bridge. The screen must conform to the same profile from the front
as the original. From a top view the length of the windscreen may be shortened by 25 mm
to allow clearance for the rider. The screen must have no sharp edges.
e. Motorcycles that were not originally equipped with streamlining are not allowed to add
streamlining in any form, with the exception of a lower fairing device, as described in (g
and h). This device cannot exceed above a line drawn horizontally from axle to axle and
must follow the specifications described at point g).

Isobutyl alcohol, tert-Butyl alcohol; Methyl tertiary butyl ether, Ethyl tertiary butyl ether,
Tertiary amyl methyl ether Diisopropyl ether.
Road Racing FIM SBK and SS World Championships and FIM SST Cup Regulations 145 update 22
January 2015:
e) Manganese is not permitted in concentrations above 2.0 mg/L. For the present this is
solely to cover possible minor contamination by other fuels.
Lead replacement petrols, although basically free of lead, are not an alternative to the use
of unleaded petrol. Such petrols may contain unacceptable additives not consistent with
the FIM Fuel Regulations.
2.7.3 Air
Only ambient air may be mixed with the fuel as an oxidant.
2.7.4 Primary tests
2.7.4.1
The FIM may require tests of fuels to be administered before, or at the time of
delivery to, an event at
which such fuels are to be used.
2.7.4.2
Fuel companies supplying “race” fuels (fuels other than those obtained at public
fuel stations) to
participating teams must submit ten litres (2 x 5 L) to the laboratory
appointed by the FIM/DWO for
analysis in accordance with the specification. Providing the fuel
is within the specification, a certificate
containing a test report number will be issued to the
fuel company. The fuel company must provide a copy of the test report number to the

2.7.5 Fuel sampling and testing
1. The FIM Superbike Technical Director has the sole responsibility for the administration
and supervision during the taking of fuel samples.
2. The preferred fuel test method is gas chromatography or GC Fingerprint method.
Gas chromatography (GC) is an analytical technique for separating compounds based
primarily on their volatility and polarity. Gas chromatography provides both qualitative
and quantitative information for individual compounds present in a sample. Gas
chromatography is widely used for the analysis of fuels.
The GC Fingerprint is a comparison between the given reference and the fuel drawn
from the competitor. With the fingerprint method any changes in composition and
concentration of the fuel against the reference is detected. The separation is done with
a non-polar column suitable for fuels analysis. The detection of the components is done
with a flame ionisation detector.

January 2015:
3. If other test methods are required, fuel samples will be transported to the appointed
laboratory by an official courier, using the appropriate containers.
4. Riders selected for fuel controls will be directed with their motorcycles to the inspection
area.
5. Only new sample bottles will be used for the fuel samples.
6. The fuel to be tested will be transferred into three bottles (3 small sample containers),
marked A, B and C, and identified by reference to the motorcycle from which the
sample was taken. The bottles will be closed, sealed and labelled by the FIM Superbike
Technical Director and/or the Fuel Analysts.
7. The Fuel Sample Declaration form will be filled out immediately, containing all
information as shown on the sample sheet, including the riders’ name and race number,
date and place of fuel sampling. A responsible team member will sign this declaration,
after verifying that all the information is correct.
8. Sample A and B will be given to the appointed laboratory staff, present at the event for
analysis or be sent to the respective laboratory by the organiser if no trackside
laboratory is available. Sample B will be kept by the laboratory staff as a retained
sample in case of a dispute. All samples will be accompanied by a copy of the Fuel
Sample Declaration form. Costs for the analyses of sample A and B will be paid by the
FIM.
9. Sample C will be handed over to the FIM for safeguarding in case of protests and/or
requirement of a counter-expertise by the FIM appointed laboratory, accompanied by a
copy of the Fuel Sample Declaration form. Costs for the analyses of sample C will be
paid by the team concerned.
10.
As soon as possible after receipt of the samples and completing the testing, the
Fuel Analyst/FIM appointed laboratory will inform report the results of the fuel sample
analyses directly to the FIM Superbike Technical Director, with a copy to the FIM CCR
and CTI Secretariat ([email protected], [email protected], [email protected]).
Road Racing FIM SBK and SS World Championships and FIM SST Cup Regulations 147 update 22
January 2015:
11.
In the case of non-conformity, the FIM Superbike Technical Director must notify the
results to- the FIM, the Race Direction and the rider/ team representative concerned.
Failure of the sample to correspond to the FIM fuel specifications will result in the
disqualification of the competitor. The result of the competitor’s fuel sample analysis
(“A” or “B” sample) more favourable to the competitor will be taken into account.
12.
Within 48 hours of the receipt of the notification of the results of the test of sample
A and/or B, the team must notify the FIM and the FIM Superbike Technical Director if a
counter-expertise is required (or not required) for sample C.
13.
The Race Direction will take a decision at the Superbike, Supersport and Superstock
Cup event immediately following the notification of the results of the final expertise.
Any appeal against the decision of the Race Direction will be heard by the FIM Stewards
appointed for the Superbike, Supersport and Superstock Cup event at which the Race
Direction decision is taken. This will take place after the C sample has been analysed.
2.7.6 Fuel Storage
Fuel must only be stored in metal, sealable containers in the competitor’s pit.
Fire fighting equipment, protective devices and staff must conform to the requirements imposed
by the local authorities and by-laws. The organiser must have fire extinguishers of a size and type
approved by the local by-laws, available to each competitor in the pit area.
2.7.7 Coolants
The only liquid engine coolants permitted other than lubricating oil shall be water or water mixed
with ethyl alcohol.

APPENDIX E: SOUND LEVEL CONTROL - 2016 FIM-Regulations
2.11
SOUND LEVEL CONTROL
Sound limits in force
The maximum sound level shall be measured at a mean piston speed of 11 m/sec. The
fixed RPM specified in Art. 2.11.6 may be used.
2.11.1
With the microphone placed at 50 cm from the exhaust pipe at an angle of 45°
measured from the centre-line of the exhaust end and at the height of the exhaust pipe, but at
least 20 cm above the
ground. If this is not possible, the measurement can be taken 45°
upwards.
2.11.2
During a sound test, motorcycles not equipped with a gear-box neutral must be
placed on a stand.
2.11.3
The silencers will be marked when they are checked and it is not allowed to change
them after the
verification, except for any spare silencer which has also been checked and
marked.
2.11.4
The rider shall keep his engine running out of gear and shall increase the engine
speed until it reaches the specified Revolutions Per Minute (RPM). Measurements must be taken
when the specified RPM is reached.
2.11.5
The RPM depends upon the mean piston speed corresponding to the stroke of the
engine.
The RPM will be given by the relationship:
30,000 x cm
N=
l
in which:
N=
prescribed RPM of engine
cm = fixed mean piston speed in m/s
l=
stroke in mm
2.11.6
Noise control
Due to the similarity of the piston stroke in different engine configurations within the
capacity classes,
the noise test will be conducted at a fixed RPM. For reference only, the mean
piston speed at which the noise test is conducted is calculated at 11 m/sec.

2.11.7
The maximum sound level for engines with more than on silencer will be measured
on each exhaust
end.
2.11.8
A motorcycle which does not comply with the maximum sound limits may be
presented several times at pre-race control.
2.11.9
The surrounding sound must not exceed 90 dB/A within a 5 metres radius from the
power source during
tests.
2.11.10
Apparatus for noise control must be to international standard IEC 651, Type 1.
The sound level meter must be equipped with a calibrator for control and adjustment of
the meter during
periods of use.
2.11.11
The “slow response” setting must always be used.
2.11.12
Sound control after the competition
In a competition which requires a final examination of motorcycles before the results are
announced, this examination must include a sound control measurement of at least the first
three motorcycles listed
in the final classification. At this final test, there will be a 3dB/A
tolerance.
2.11.13
Sound control during a competition
In a competition which requires noise control tests during the event, motorcycles must
comply with the
noise limits without the tolerance in Art. 2.11.
