CSBK Recent Competitor Updates

1. REAR SAFETY LIGHTS required for WET EVENTS in MOPAR CSBK

As discussed during Competitor Meetings during 2016 Mopar CSBK National events, rear warning lights are required in 2017, with rules matched to the FIM standards for 2017 World Superbike and Supersport (John Bickle will have approved lights available at each venue):

All motorcycles must have a functioning compact red light mounted at the rear of the machine.  This Rear Safety Light must be switched on any time the motorcycle is on the track or ridden in the Pit Lane and the session is declared Open or Wet.  All Rear Safety Lights must comply with the following:

a. Lighting direction must be parallel to the machine centre line (motorcycle running direction) and be clearly visible from the rear at least 15 degrees to both left and right sides of the machine’s centre line.

b. The Rear Safety Light must be mounted near the end of the seat/rear bodywork and be approximately on the machine’s centre line, in a position approval at Technical Inspection.  In case of dispute regarding the mounting position, the decision of the Technical staff will be final.

c. Power output/luminosity equivalent should be approx. 10 -15 (incandescent), 0.6 – 1.8 W (LED).

d. The output must be continuous – no flashing Rear Safety Light permitted when on track, flashing is permitted in the Pit Lane when pit limiter is active.

e. Rear Safety Light power supply may be separated from the motorcycle (battery operated acceptable).

f. The Technical Inspection staff has the right to refuse any Rear Safety Light system not satisfying this safety purpose. 

2. OIL RETAINING LOWER FAIRINGS with Drain Holes and Plugs

Every machine approved for competition in CSBK events must have an oil-retaining (sealed) lower fairing.  Each lower fairing must have at least one hole for drainage in the bottom of the fairing, with a removable plug that allows this water drainage hole to be sealed during typical dry racing use.  Please see the Technical guidelines on the CSBK web site for complete details. 

3. FRONT BRAKE LEVER GUARDS or Protectors

Every machine approved for competition in CSBK events must have a device to protect the front brake lever from contact with another competitor while on-track.  This can be a bar-end guard or a separate protector that runs parallel and in front of the brake lever.  Each device must be specifically approved for race use by the CSBK Technical Inspectors.

4. CHAIN GUARDS

CSBK require the use of a chain guard/protector below the swing arm and in front of the rear sprocket on all competition machine 

5. AMB TIMING DEVICES NO LONGER PROVIDED FROM 2018

Due to changes in the availability and pricing of AMB Timing devices, 2017 will be the final season that CSBK provides the no-charge loan of AMB Transmitter for CSBK National events.  Competitors should plan to purchase their own permanent AMB Transmitter for their use, either rechargeable or hard-wired.

6. DOUBLEHEADER SUNDAY RACE GRIDS based on lap times from previous RACE RESULTS (race day one)

See CSBK series release from July 15, 2017 for details
