I take it you are talking about Pre 78 as the Pre 75 rules haven’t changed.

Why will, as you term it “ average punter “ be disadvantaged because the suspension level has been lifted 1 1/2” ?

We have 2 Pre 78 bikes that will remain 9” and won’t feel disadvantaged at all.

I will be there. Interesting rule change for pre 78 good to see common sense win over. I can now put my CR husky back to standard and get the balance right, I will keep my KTM as it is with 10"
BigK did you help get this rule change in?

My 2c opinion re the pre '75 class... go for the simplest option: As a starting point anything that is as per the original manufacturer spec is legal. That way all unmodified bikes are legal, nothing for the happy vintage racer to do in order to compete.

If there is concern about competition across brands perhaps allow competitors so inclined to modify their machine to match a nominated spec. For example a '73 maico (or whatever) could be altered to '74 specs (or whatever).

Those two basic ideas allow both easy access to the class and room for the tinkerers to tinker. You know, same as it was back in the day.  :-)
