Re: Race-seat mod

SS tail with stock seat or anything replicating stock seat (ie saddlemen) legal in ss

sbk seat with foam, not legal in ss. same as it's always been when you were with jake.

Sorry you are wrong. SBK tails w/foam are legal in SS in CCS, WERA, and CMRA (probably the rest as well).
So it was you that was confused
Just a note: We used HotBodies and they do not even make a SS tail for the R6.

Re: Race-seat mod

well F. Guess I need to reread the tech rules again.

Are you coming to any AMA rounds to watch Jake next year? Think I saw you at Mid Oh but was busy with the team.

Re: Race-seat mod

Damnit there it is. Chpt 8 Sec H

Quote:
h) Exact replica replacement bodywork (this includes the tailsection) may be used on machines equipped with bodywork from the factory. If the stock bodywork includes air-ducting tubes they may be removed. If they are utilized they must be stock or exact replica parts. Solo seat cowlings may be added when not supplied by OEM. If an aftermarket tailsection is used that incorporates a solo seat cowling when one is not offered by the manufacturer, the tailsection must conform to the shape and size of the stock bodywork that is provided by the manufacturer. The solo seat cowling portion of said bodywork must start at the position of the stock bodywork on the rear and rise to no more than 1.5 inches above the seat when measured from the top of the bodywork to the top of the seat on a stock motorcycle. The shape of the bodywork must conform to the shape of the seat (no huge rises in the middle etc.). A “Superbike Seat” is allowed (i.e. the seat is molded into the tailsection). Tinted windscreens are allowed, double bubble type windscreens are not. Windscreens must be the exact same dimensions as stock except for thickness. Windscreens may not be less than 75% the thickness of a stock screen.
Sorry dudes, I'll duck in a corner for a while.
