No carburators with accpump. If the bike has newer parts than it originally had, it belongs to class according to these newer parts. For example, bike with motor from 1975 assembled in frame from 1972 goes to class C.

Folding footrest in all solo classes. All bikes must have silencer. In paddock there must be a carpet under every bike to prevent soil pollution from oil & gasoline leaks. Stop-button is recommended.
