road legal rearsets in Germany for F3

Hi Al,

are any of the rearsets you offer road legal in Germany? I'm looking for some I can not only use on the track but on the roads as well and the rules here are kind of strict - either they need to have an e-number or they have to be tested by an official institution to be "legal".

As far as I know the Rizoma rearsets were are tested but don't offer the e-number. What about the others?

And if you would pick a set of rearsets, which one would it be?

Regards,
Nephalem

I'm afraid nearly all of the Rearsets are made for track use with road use and don't have e - numbers or certification from official institutes other than Rizoma which as you said don't have E- number either.

Regards

Al

Clearly, putting the small players out of the game in favour of the big guys (who can afford their parts tested and certified or "homologized" as they like to call it)... yes, the world as we know it, is coming to an end. our generation has failed to make a difference and make this world a better place for our kids.
Let's go back to bikes...

In some European countries especially Germany the Rules are terribly strict therefore many aftermarket items must be road approved or E marked Homologated for Road use.

Most manufacturers state that their rearsets are for Race use only to avoid government bodies pounding on them for selling to end Road users parts that are not road regulated by an official institute so to speak.

You may already see this with Exhausts but for Germany and Switerland its for other parts too. Makes no sense and such a shame

Tell me about it mate, not liking all these crazy rules and regulation put on aftermarket manufacturers.

just think of all the riders here - all e-marked parts are so expensive (due to all the certifications, testing etc) and you don't have any benefit from it.
We have extremely strict noise regulations, basicly all aftermarket exhausts are illegal even though they are e-marked, but certified in other contries so they could meet the noise requirements somehow (de-catting or using race manifolds is strictly forbidden for road use...). In real life once the police does the test and you fail it you have to pay a fee and it might even happen you are not allowed to ride your bike back home.

Additionally nearly all aftermarket parts must have this e-number or certification, including things like levers, rearsets, mirrors, even the lamps and so on. Xenon HIDs are forbidden as well, even if they don't affect anyone else (if properly installed).

Long story short: we are not allowed to have any of the good or fun parts if we want to ride on the streets...

They can't declare existing stuff as illegal Ralph, only stuff produced after their laws are brought into play.
