SACU set to make Lanyards Compulsory for 2020

Just an early ‘heads up’ that all machines used in SACU competitions may have to have kill switch lanyards fitted for the 2020 season.

At present they are only required for Championship trials, but there is an indication that they will need to be fitted to all machines for all SACU trials from 2020 onwards.

The main problem is that they cannot be fitted to older 4 stroke classic machines which use the magneto electrical system, so these may be the only exception.

It is not clear if this will apply to ACU riders who ride in SACU events as they have ACU licences and the rule at present does not apply.

More information will be released from the SACU at the appropriate time, but it may be a good idea to get a lanyard kill switch fitted to your bike sooner rather than later.
