   thanks jimg1au   for correcting my "500" to the appropriate 261cc and above. Cheers Tim754

PS but when my boys raced XL350's in pre75 ,we used the blue plates with white number thing! Still that has been superseded now.
I may not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

OK so there is a rule in the Classic MX & DT chapter (18). It should also be in Chapter 12 under GCR 12.6.3.1,(which says Colours must be as follows) but it isn't.  All the other different colour combinations (along with the straight capacity ones) are there.

Also the class is stated as 251 and over (not 261).  Anyway all that this means to me is that the class should be called 500 class with the capacity stated as 263 and over.  Why is it 263???? because Classic MX & DT etc have a 5% tolerance so a 250 that has been overbored to a capacity of 262.5 cc is still eligible for the 250 class.

47 that be 263.55  ;) Do agree with the oversize limit it makes sense for the older bikes. I think some of the older M.O Ms actually had the 260+ cc things written in.

I am looking for clarification on number plate background colours please.
In the MOMS below it says a bike/machine 236cc or above needs yellow backgrounds. Is this a new rule or is 236cc a typo?
If not does that mean if you have 246cc bike for example you can have the choice to enter it in the ‘250 class’ with either a yellow background or a green background? or does it mean if you want to ride in the 236cc and over class then it needs yellow but if you want to ride in 250 class then it has to be green?

Note how it says its for machine identification and not actually worded as colours for  'class' so i am wondering does this mean if you wanted to ride a 125cc in the 250 'class' you need to have a black plate and not a green plate for example?

I always thought big bore 'class' over 256cc? was yellow background but maybe things have changed now.




Wanted - 1978 TS185 frame or frame&motor. Frame # TS1852-24007 up to TS1852-39022

I'd say a typo, 263cc lets a 250 have a few oversizes without having to change classes & is a number that rings a bell for the big bore class
