    Ultra light weight GP rules on quick shifters

    Can you run a quick shifter on a R3 in the ULW GP class?

    I didn't see anything specific in the rules, but thought I'd ask around.

    R3 runs Superstock rules in ULWGP (page 27). See rule 'hh' under the Superstock category (top of page 23).

    Page references are to the 1/1/16 rule book.

    Thanks Scott! I saw where the R3 is superstock rules for that class, but just got thrown off by the wording of HH. This is a new class for me, and someone said I couldn't use one, but I just couldn't see where the rule book stated that.

    You couldn't use a quick shifter on the R3 under the 2015 rules - last year it was allowed in ULWGP as a Supersport, which is more restrictive than Superstock.

    So much hate for the KTM. I thought it was going to get SuperSport status as well. I think this means no dry breaks allowed either. I'll take that project off my list as well.

    Jim,

    You CAN run a drybreak in Ultra Lightweight GP Endurance on the KTM. I'll make that clear in the print version of the 2016 Rule Book.
