Yea what the fuck? must be mad he gave up 5 hp all season.
And how is it easier to cheat on a 2 stroke vs 4??
What I'm trying to say is if a rule is put in place like the stock engine rule for the 2 stroke engines then it needs to be kept on the up and up. I feel like it wasn't and there isn't much more I'm going to say about it other then that.
So the CMRC is doing a bang up job enforcing all of the other rules? This is the only rule (that I've heard of, and I follow mx better than the average guy) anyone including yourself has been consistently vocal about. It'd be different if everyone complained about the CMRC enforcing rules in general, but everyone bitched about this one and this one only so much that it got changed. Its very suspect when people bitch about enforcing only one of the rules, and not the entire rule book.
I'm still interested in hearing your thoughts on how its easier to cheat on a 2 stroke vs. 4 stroke. Leading edge has had questionable bikes in my mind for years. Yet no one complains about how they tear down 4 strokes. The CMRC must use the snap on tools to measure 4 stroke stuff, then get out the hammer and chisel to measure 2 strokes......
I ever actually said that it is easier to cheat with a 2stroke then a 4stroke. I said it's easy to cheat with that engine when it is not thoroughly checked during a tear down. I am also not saying Kaven was necessarily cheating, what I'm trying to say is that I was not satisfied with the system of how the engines that were tore down this year were checked. If an engine is to be stock I would expect more to be done then a cylinder pulled off and looked at by eye and slapped back on. If that's the case then don't bother having the rule.
I understand you obviously don't like how I answered the question but if I'm going to answer a question I am going to answer it truthfully and whether you like my answer or not I gave you my honest opinion. I feel like I have strong reason to feel the way I do about the rules regarding the situation and the cloudiness of the rule book on it. As for enforcing other rules, I'm sure if you asked the head referee he would let you know that this is not the only rule I have questioned for clarity. You say this is the only rule that I am vocal about but that is because it's the only one that I am asked about every time I do an interview lately...
At least my answer gave you guys something to talk about on the forum considering how boring it's been on here lately ;)
I appreciate your honesty, I hate the bullshit that most people have to talk when you ask them a question in this sport.
I still think your concerns wouldn't be concerns if you weren't getting beat by one.... I guess well never know.
