A3VE motorcycle eligibility

The event will be open to all licensed riders and registered bikes whether they be Enduro, MX, Trials, Trail, Agricultural or Road.
As Enduro and Trail bikes evolved differently to Motocross bikes our classes have been designed to try to keep bikes of a similar technology together with the emphasis on Trail and Enduro bikes.
Therefore, the classes are not based solely on model year alone but will have some other criteria to them however this will be quite minor.

We have done our best to apply the KISS principle by keeping the number of classes to a minimum and at the same time making a class for the major differences between bikes and their riders age.
We have allowed water cooled and aircooled bikes to compete together along with single and twin shock bikes. In the big scheme of things there isn't that much advantage to be had by either model in a trail scenario as in the early eighties single shocks were still finding their way while twin shock designs were at their peak.

Watercooled bikes were also still finding their way as the different manufacturers found ways of finding room for the radiators, some of which were quite vulnerable.
Disc brakes however were the game changer, discs were not only more powerful and required less maintenance they also still worked after climbing out of a creek or mud bog, therefore we have opted to keep discs out of the V3 class.
We are aware that there were some models that did come with discs in the V3 era however in order to compete these bikes can be fitted with a drum brake front end from any other V3 eligible bike or move onto the V4 class.

We have tried to make the classes easy to understand and as clear as possible, there will be a few bikes that fit into the 'Flow on' category, these bikes are essentially the same as there earlier counterparts, not just similar, please don?t try to flaunt the intent of the rules with bikes outside of these guidelines, they won?t make it through scrutineering.

If you have any queries? about a particular model feel free to ask and we will confirm the eligibility for you.Questions regarding bike eligibility can be directed to; eligibility@verivinduro.com.au

FAQ
Q: Will VERi be making all their events competitive from now on?
A:No, most likely only one big event per year.

Q:Can I ride my 82/83 KX250 in the V3 class with the disc brake as it was available in the day?
A:No, a disc brake would be a major advantage and the aim is to keep bikes of similar capabilities together. You can ride your 82/83 KX250 in the V3 class if you fit a period drum brake or you can ride it in the V4 class with the original disc front end.

Q:Why can?t I ride my twin shock aircooled bike in a class that caters for these old school bikes?
A:We have deemed that there is minimal advantage between these technologies in a trail situation and we are trying to keep the classes to a minimum.
