a. If a change or modification to the stock engine or its parts is not included in these rules then the modification is considered legal.

b. The word “Stock” means unmodified factory original parts or components

2. Overall Engine

a. No limited production race motors allowed. Must be a production motorcycle engine, 4 cylinders, 4 stroke

b. No titanium anywhere in or on the engine unless it comes stock form manufacturer of engine on the production bike

c. Must have engine, clutch, and transmission all in one unit & must be chain driven.

3. Bore and stroke

a. 600cc Maximum displacement for an engine model that was new in 2006 or newer. Older engines maximum displacement is 637cc.  Engine model is defined as a manufacturer redesign of overall engine. See specification list. 

b. No strokers or de-stroked engines

4. Head & Cams

a. NO PORTING of intake or exhaust runners. 

1. Valve jobs, valve grinding, valve seating, valve seal modification and valve seat cutting are allowed.

2. Valve seat inserts may be reworked or replaced with any seat of original dimensions. Any dimensional  hickness of the stock inserts may not be increased. Valve seats can be ground with multiple angles. Blending of the valve seat into the head is permitted but cannot extend more than ¼” into the aluminum head measured from where the seat meets the head.

b. OEM Head only.

c. Cam may not have a higher lift than the stock factory cam. (duration is open)

d. Valves can not be larger in diameter than factory stock valves.

5. Bottom End

a. No machining to remove weight from the crack (balancing of the crank is ok)(no after-market cranks)(no lightweight cranks)

b. No after-market connecting rods. Must use stock factory connecting rods. 

1. After-market rod bolts may be used.

c. No dry sump systems are allowed unless it comes from the motorcycle manufacturer as original equipment.

1. Clutch must remain operational

b. No modification to the stock transmission gears, no close-ratio gears or nonstandard gear-rations. All gears must remain in transmission, no removing any gears.

7. Ignition

a. No aftermarket ignition systems; must use factory stock or factory racing ECU, No hot ECU boxes, no physically modified ECU boxes. Factory race boxes are ok, but must have the rev limit set to the street bike stock rev limit. Stock Rev Limiter must remain intact at all times (Ex: no switched or gear specific limiters). If a computer is hooked up to check the ECU it must be set to factory stock specifications, no tolerance. See specifications list for RPM Limits. 

b. All cars must have the PA standard connector for the track to check engine rpm rev limit. These are available from the chassis manufactures and engine builders, and at the track. All cars must leave intact the rpm wire coming from the ECU.

c. May use different year ignitions from same manufacturer as long as stock rev limit or engine (not ignition) is retained.

d. No aftermarket coils

g. No more than one ECY box present in or on car.

h. A 50 rpm over rev tolerance for the purpose of tech inspection is acceptable. (Note: this does not mean you can turn up the rpms in any ECU by any amount)

8. Air Induction System

a. No mechanically forced induction (turbo charging, supercharging)

b. Any carburetors may be used on any engine, regardless of year of engine. Note: Switching to carburetors on engines that came with fuel injection usually increases the rev limiter due to the removal of the injectors as the ECU cuts fuel to limit rpm’s before it cuts the ignition. A reflash of the ECU will be required if using carburetors in order to comply with the rev limit rule 7. a.
