  • Results of the 2014 U6SA Meeting

    The U6SA tri-annual meeting was held Wednesday November 12th 2014 6:30 PM at the Hyper Shop.

    There were two individuals running for U6SA director. Jim Young and Zach Light. A closed ballot was taken at the end of the meeting. Jim Young is new U6SA Director
    Rule change proposals.

    #1 Remove all of rule 7. (this rule did not pass)

    #2 Change rule 7. a) to remove the words No aftermarket ECU’s, stock appearing ECU only. Reflashing of ECU and factory race ECU’s are allowed. The new rule would be this:
    7) Ignition
    a) Stock factory rev limit must remain in place for all engines larger than 600cc. Rev limit for all 600cc (nothing larger than 600cc) engines is 16,100 rpms. U6SA specified Rev Limit must remain intact at all times (no switched or gear specific limiters). If a computer is hooked up to check the ECU it must be set to U6SA specified rpm’s, no tolerance. See specifications list for RPM limits.
    (this rule did not pass)

    #3 Change the U6SA rev limit on all engines larger than 600cc's to be 14,700 (currently it is set to be the stock rev limit of each particular engine) This would make tech of the rev limit a little easier.
    7) Ignition
    a) No aftermarket ECU’s, stock appearing ECU only. Reflashing of ECU and factory race ECU’s are
    allowed. Rev limit for all engines larger than 600cc is 14,800 rpm’s. Rev limit for all 600cc (nothing larger than 600cc) engines is 16,100 rpms. U6SA specified Rev Limit must remain intact at all times (no switched or gear specific limiters). If a computer is hooked up to check the ECU it must be set to U6SA specified rpm’s, no tolerance.
    (this rule did not pass)

    #4 Change rule 7. h) from a 50 rpm tolerance to a 100 rpm tolerance. It can be difficult to hold a Yamaha R6 to 16150, the person doing the check has to be real easy on the throttle and not cause the engine to run past the limiter. Here would be the new rule:
    7) Ignition
    h) A 100 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)
    (this rule did not pass)

    #5 Add Rule
    7) Ignition
    i) Switchable wires for changing ignition maps, fuel maps, or rev limits must be contained and secured in the wiring harness. (the wires must be taped up, not visible, and unable to be switched in any way)
    (this rule passed)

    #6 Remove rule 8. d), which it would also make sense then to eliminate rule 8. e) since our rules are a set of rules of things that cannot be done, there is no reason to say that it can. The rule currently is:
    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.
    i) 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)
    c) If the engine did not come from the factory with fuel injection, fuel injection may not be used.
    d) No after market throttle bodies.
    e) Mechanical Fuel Injection (MFI) can be used.
    (this rule passed)


    #7 Change rule from:
    2) Overall Engine
    b) No titanium anywhere in or on the engine, unless it comes stock form manufacturer of engine on the production bike.

    2) Overall Engine
    b) No titanium anywhere in or on the engine, unless it comes stock form manufacturer of engine on
    the production bike or on the after market rods.
    (this rule passed)


    #8 Standardized location for the transponder for all tracks.
    (this rule passed)

    #9 Limit the number of on board adjusters to 2.
    (this rule did not pass)

    #10 Right rear tire must be a spec tire and durometer 50 before and after the race.
    (this rule did not pass)


    Thank you!

    Was a standardized location determined for the transponder or is that still TBD?

      Yes, it is 21" back from the axle. You can go to the top of this U6SA section and view the complete 2015-2017 rules. It is listed in there at the end of the rules document.
