TECHNICAL REGULATIONS

5.2.7 MCRCB SUPERSTOCK REGULATIONS

Machines competing in the National Supertock Championships must comply with the MCRCB SUPERSTOCK REGULATIONS. These are as follows and are correct as of the printing of these regulations but which are subject to any amendments made by the FIM or MCRCB which will be issued by means of an MCRCB Bulletin.

EVERYTHING THAT IS NOT AUTHORISED AND PRESCRIBED IN

THESE REGULATIONS IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN

The motorcycles must be homologated by the original manufacturer only.

As the name Superstock implies, the machines used are allowed limited modifications. Most modifications that are allowed are only allowed for safety reasons.

Superstock motorcycles require FIM Homologation (see art 5.2.9) or

MCRCB approval.

All machines must comply with all requirements of Road Racing as specified in the MCRCB Regulations.

The Appearance from front, rear and the profile of Superstock motorcycles must (except when otherwise stated) conform to the homologated shape (as originally produced by the manufacturer). The appearance of the exhaust system and engine case and tank guards is excluded from this rule.

5.2.7.1 Machine Specifications

All items not mentioned in the following articles must remain as originally produced by the manufacturer for the homologated machine.

5.2.7.2 Balancing various motorcycle concepts

In order to equalize the performance of motorcycles with different engine configurations, changes in the minimum weight can be applied according to their respective racing performances. The decision about applying a handicap system to a respective class will be taken by MCRCB/MSVR at any time. These handicaps will follow the system like described in 5.2.6.2 of the Superbike regulations, but will be adapted to the Superstock class.

5.2.7.3 Displacement capacities

The following engine configurations compose the Superstock 1000 and

Superstock 600 classes.

5.2.7.3.1 Superstock 1000

Over 750cc up to 1000cc 4-stroke 3 and 4 cylinders maximum

Over 850cc up to 1200cc 4-stroke 2 cylinders maximum

157

5.2.7.3.2 Superstock 600

Over 500cc up to 600cc

Over 600cc up to 675cc

4-stroke 4 cylinders maximum

4-stroke 3 cylinders maximum

Over 650cc up to 750cc 4-stroke 2 cylinders maximum

The displacement capacities must remain at the homologated size.

Increasing the bore size to reach class limits is not allowed.

5.2.7.4 Minimum Weight

The FIM decides the minimum weight value for a homologated model as sold to the public by determining its dry weight.

The dry weight of a homologated motorcycle is defined as the total weight of the empty motorcycle as produced by the manufacturer (after removal of fuel, vehicle number plate, tools and the main stand when fitted but with oil and radiator liquid at the prescribed level). To confirm the dry weight a minimum of three motorcycles are weight and compared. The result is rounded off to the nearest digit.

The minimum weight value is determined by the dry weight value (kg)

1000cc 4 cylinders 174kg

1200cc 2 cylinders 174kg

600cc 4 cylinders

675cc 3 cylinders

165kg

168kg

In the final inspection at the end of the race, the checked machines will be weighed in the condition they were at the end of the race.

The established weight limit must be met in the condition the machine finished the race. Nothing can be added to the machine including water, oil, fuel or tyres.

At the time of the event, the weight of the whole machine (including the tank and its contents) must be not less than the minimum weight.

During the practice and qualifying sessions every rider may be asked to submit his motorcycle to a weight control.

5.2.7.5 Number and Background Colours

See MCRCB General Technical Regulations (G-3.29).

In case of dispute concerning legibility of numbers, the decision of MCRCB will be final.

5.2.7.6 Fuel

The MCRCB Control Fuel must be used in every practice session and race.

This is supplied by WP Racing, see F-Championship Conditions and any

Bulletins issued by MSVR.

158

5.2.7.7 Tyres

The MCRCB will impose a controlled tyre. Further conditions will be stated in

F - Championship Conditions and any Bulletins issued by MSVR.

The use of tyre warmers is allowed.

The rear brake calliper bracket may be fixed on the swingarm, but the bracket (support) must maintain the same mounting (fixing) points for the calliper as used on the homologated machine. A modification of these parts is authorised. The Swingarm may be modified for this reason to aid the location of the rear brake calliper bracket, by welding, drilling or using a helicoil.
