The technical requirements for motorcycles contained in the rulebook are not to be regarded as all inclusive relative to safe race preparation. It is the responsibility of the rider to make sure his/her motorcycle is prepared in a safe, workmanlike manner.

If you have any questions or need clarification of any parts of these rules, don't hesitate to call or e-mail the AFM. It is far better to ask and be clear on something and act accordingly than to be unsure or make possibly incorrect assumptions and find out later that you are not legal.
