  • 2015 rules proposals, voting summary – AHRMA
    Committee Yes Discussion DJ made a motion to accept the concept but limit the overbore to 020 417cc which is in line with AHRMA s general overbore rule for four cylinder engines FG seconded The vote was 12 0 in favor of the motion I would like to see the BMW R65 stock 649 6 cc s be allowed the standard twin cylinder overbore of 0 060 The Honda 400F and BMW R65 are the only two bikes in VSBLW that have no room for wear related overbore The R65 has a Bore x Stroke of 82 x 61 5 mm 3 22 x 2 42 in so 0 060 would put the limit at 670cc s Jim Buckalew July 24 2014 at 11 39 pm Reply Since the ever decreasing supply of parts one issue that should change due to safety and parts supplies is the use of newer wheel assemblies Riding motocross and Offroad almost my whole life I can t see one reason why we shouldn t be able to use newer wheel assemblies and double leading double arm front brake hubs The class that I m participating in states No major components can be later than 1974 I e frame fork engine gear box wheels etc I installed a 83 YZ490 front wheel and 82 YZ250 rear wheel and rode a little bit and noticed a little more braking power but not enough to write home about My thought was to shave some weight but was informed that s illegal for the Sportman 500 class Just due to safety this rule should be changed Eric Matthews July 25 2014 at 3 54 pm Reply FIRST OF ALL EVERYONE WHO HAS A COMMENT ON THE PROPOSALS PLEASE ALSO SEND IT TO DAVID LAMBERTH SO THAT HE CAN FORWARD THEM TO THE TRUSTEES BEFORE OCTOBER 13TH THAT IS THE SURE WAY IN WHICH THEY WILL GET THE INFORMATION AND ONLY WAY IN WHICH THEY WILL CONSIDER IT Concerning the 11 3 12 6 Novice Rule AHRMA proposal for VMX and PVMX I do not do a lot of riding but when I do race I like to think that I am doing the very best I can and try to improve I enjoy riding with the novices even now because I don t always win and it is great fun to battle back and forth with someone your own skill level and displacement leveI Here is my point with the Novice Rule This rule although meant for just novices SHOULD BE OF CONCERN TO EVERYONE THAT RACES IN AN AHRMA EVENT not just NOVICES If you write the trustees about their revisions to the ESS proposal or any other I URGE you to give your thoughts on the 11 3 12 6 Novice Rule which essentially combines ALL novices in one class regardless of displacement It would combine the 60 and 70 novices to compete as one class FOR NOVICES ONLY My thoughts 1 I cannot race my ESS bike in an ESS class PERIOD THAT IS WHY THIS ESS RULE PROPOSAL WAS MADE TO SEPARATE ESS FROM SPORTSMAN BUT EVERYONE ELSE CAN 2 I cannot race an ESS bike in an ESS class and my Sportsman in a Sportsman class on the same day while everyone else has that choice 3 A trustee told me and this is a direct quote It was felt that a true novice would not be hindered by displacement My first bike after I started back up racing was a 1975 Husky 175 I can tell you I also run the Historic class when I can Bellingham and Spokane with a 175 Husky I can also tell you I never have a chance of winning when there is a Novice out there with a 400 Husky PERIOD Nor could I when with that in an AGE class because again most that run the age class have 400 s or 250 s 4 IT IS SAID THIS WILL PREVENT SANDBAGGERS IN THE NOVICE CLASS There are MANY DIFFERENT SKILL SETS in the INTERMEDIATE level too why is the intermediate level so disproportionally large 5 There are MANY times when there is only ONE EXPERT IN A CERTAIN CLASS AND THEY TOO GET A TROPHY 6 I am not interested in getting a trophy I am interested in being treated like everyone else 7 I am not the only one affected by this SO this NOT a personal attack 8 I did not re introduce the ESS class proposal so that ONLY A SELECT GROUP of Riders could benefit from it 9 THE ARE MORE ESS NOVICES THAT WILL COME OUT IF THEY WERE GIVEN A CHANCE 10 IF THIS RULES CHANGE PASSES THERE WILL BE A LOT OF NOVICES THAT WILL DROP OUT OF RACING thank you please consider writing the Trustees and getting involved on this and any other proposal that you have a concern Eric Matthews AHRMA 8600 Tim Jackson July 25 2014 at 4 10 pm Reply I suggest another change to the proposed Early Sportsman Stock rule Delete the phrase if the original exhaust is replaced a dimensionally accurate replica of that pipe must be used My rationale is that some tracks where AHRMA events are held such as Hollister require bikes to pass sound restrictions The B50 MX came factory equipped with a reverse cone megaphone and no silencer The only practical way to make the B50 quiet enough for tracks such as Hollister is to remove the stock reverse cone megaphone and replace it with a short section of straight pipe followed by an aftermarket silencer Deleting that phrase would enable racers to install aftermarket silencers and spark arresters Respectfully Tim Jackson Rick Teegarden July 25 2014 at 9 44 pm Reply Early Sportsman Stock could be positive game changer for AHRMA bringing bikes and riders in that previously were left with no competitive class to ride in However restricting the rims to stock materials makes no sense I recently changed the wheels on my SL350 back to the stock hubs and also removed the CR fork legs and put on the stock legs so that I would comply with the hoped for rule change When I changed to the stock hubs I had the old rusty steel rims removed and broken spokes and laced up aluminum rims Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be required to lace up steel rims Why is it the British bikes have such tremendous leeway in the rules nickle plated frames CZ hubs and alloy rims Ceriani forks and little left of the stock bike but the motor admin July 26 2014 at 12 45 am Reply If the class is formally approved in October British bikes on the Early Sportsman Stock eligible bike list would be required to follow the same rules as bikes manufactured in any other country Rick Teegarden July 30 2014 at 11 05 pm Reply My point is about AHRMA Brit bikes in general not the Brit bikes that would participate in the proposed ESS bikes was that in many cases the only thing left from the original machine is the motor The finest of materials alloys nickle plated the best of everything money can buy Yet for the proposed ESS class requiring stock rim material It is hard to understand the logic of requiring steel rims Also not allowing a 1 welded swing arm extension very common period correct when many other classes the swing arms are completely new fabricated chrome moly or alloys Stock paint and graphics is that required in any other class Allowing a viable ESS class with a reasonable set of rules will potentially help AHRMA grow Overly restrictive rules aimed at one class only just send the same message as now that you ESS guys can stay home Is that the message being conveyed Neal Siegel July 25 2014 at 11 17 pm Reply As a loyal AHRMA member and as one of Dick Mann s perpetual Novices I feel like Ive been slapped in the face I have always felt like a member of the AHRMA family but now feel like a second class citizen Im finishing up a Rickman 125 Honda to run next year gee whiz thank you trustees I get to run against the big bores Well Ill just go back to racing my 2 pemiere bikes oops cant do that only one premiere class I guess you felt a need to reduce classes to make room for the ESS class but what a poorly thought out solution It seems to me we need more participation and limiting options for Novices is a strange way to do this Ive missed most of this season due to 3 surgeries and was eagerly anticipating next season now Im wondering if I should quit Neal Siegel July 29 2014 at 2 28 am Reply Can anybody explain the rationale behind the Novice class changes It seems to me to be an answer to a question nobody asked Im sure if we knew what the problem is we maybe able to come up with a solution better than decimating the Novice class Reese Dengler July 30 2014 at 3 30 pm Reply Of all the changes the AHRMA Board made to the as submitted ESS proposal this is the most offensive to me personally Not allowing older Premier Classic bikes to bump up to Early Sportsman is a slap in the face to many of the AHRMA members that have supported and participated in Early Sportsman since 2007 at the AHRMA Northwest Regional s Don Matthews RIP on his 250 Twinpipe CZ Kevin Blackburn on his 250 Twinpipe CZ Sean Fromhold on his Premier 500 Matchless Terry Dale George Baseley on their Classic 250 OSSA s and myself on my 360 Twinpipe CZ and others that I cannot think of at the moment No other AHRMA classes have a no bump up clause Since joining AHRMA in early 1992 I have raced my Premier Light Jawa in the Classic 250 class I have raced my 250 Twinpipe CZ in the Sportsman 250 class One year I had the honor of racing Fred Mork s Premier 500 ESO in the Classic 500 class at Chehalis And my 360 Twinpipe CZ I have bumped up on that bike the most to ESS many times beginning in 2007 at NW Regional s to the Sportsman 500 class on a few occasions prior to 2007 and in 2004 I even raced my Classic class 360 Twinpipe in the Historic 500 class at the Madera California AHRMA Post Vintage national Bumping up brings extra entries to promoters and that is a GOOD THING Extra entries for promoters are one of the things that Early Sportsman is about second only to the goal of bringing out more 1968 to 1972 era motocross motorcycles The no bump up provision added to the as submitted ESS proposal is back stabbing and ridiculous Reese Dengler August 6 2014 at 5 06 pm Reply This is how the 2014 AHRMA Board Revised Early Sportsman Stock class structure rules would have affected the AHRMA NW Lumberjack Early Sportsman Stock ESS

correction to the original list above Cliff Mee tells me the Swingarm on his 4 Speed Husqvarna has been lengthened 1 inch So technically it would also be illegal under the AHRMA Board revised Early Sportsman Stock rules Reese Dengler August 7 2014 at 6 43 pm Reply More corrections Jerry Visman s and Bob Holmes Square Barrel Maico frames are Wide Frames so they would be legal under the AHRMA Board revised ESS rules Visman still has the Akront front hub on his Square Barrel which can be seen in all the pictures I have of him Kay Mann July 31 2014 at 2 52 am Reply Neal Siegel asks a legitimate question Can anyone answer it admin July 31 2014 at 1 58 pm Reply The webmaster and staff of AHRMA cannot speak for the Trustees Comment or questions can be submitted directly via email to the National office and they will be forwarded to each Trustee Remember that only the 12 Trustees vote and have final input on any rules proposal submission eric matthews July 31 2014 at 8 57 pm Reply I think because of the importance of this thread that the webmaster might make an exception and forward these comments to David Lamberth David Lamberth August 1 2014 at 3 14 pm Reply Eric I have emailed each trustee to advise them of these comments on the 2015 rules proposals I ask that members take the time to send comments directly to me so that I can forward to the trustees Dave Lamberth eric matthews August 1 2014 at 6 12 pm Reply Yep Sorry Dave that was my mistake Didn t mean anything by it it eric matthews August 4 2014 at 3 15 pm Reply Early Sportsman Stock Proposal Early Sportsman Stock has been in the Northwest region for the past seven years and has been quite successful and growing It has been looked at and policed by the members who participate in it The rules have existed for the NW Region and have worked just fine AHRMA s revisions to the submitted ESS proposal are not in the spirit of what its members have participated in and who have increased its visibility to the vintage motocross scene I would like to take exception to some of the revisions that the trustees made to the originally submitted proposal a To preserve this historic period of American motocross modifications are very restricted and no other model from an earlier period may bump up to this class This is unnecessarily restrictive No other class abides by this rule It is discriminatory b Must retain stock frame and swing arm without modification They were modified back in the day c Must retain stock wheel hubs rim diameters and rim materials must remain as originally equipped OE At the very least this is a safety issue And at best it will price many of the people that are currently participating in the ESS class out of the sport This makes little
