Static testing seems almost pointless, load and throttle position make a big difference. Remember hearing the top teams having a neutral map for testing

They now place the bikes in gear for the test. That's why he's putting his foot on the rear brake and the clutch lever is pulled in. There's still mapping ways around the test and if you listen to a few in a row, you'll get a idea of who's getting through fairly and who's sneaking through.

For most of the top teams, it isn't worth throwing a different map in for sound testing as they can be pulled after an practice or race to be sounded tested again. Sometimes right on the floor of the stadium and if you fail, your best time will be pulled or you can get penalized a finishing result from a race.

Interesting. I was wondering why the clutch was pulled in. I didnt realize they were in gear. I kinda thought it was for more drag on the drivetrain.

The main thing that will push electric bikes forward is the noise put out by ICE bikes, especially 4t. The first thing everyone seems to do when they get a new bike is rip out the oem exhaust and put on a louder aftermarket piece.

In Tech after they pass and sticker 1 muffler They have put on another muffler and run it again so the back up is tested and stickered.

I thought the clutch was pulled because they had a bike drop into gear ( either at a national or a GP) and nearly pull a guy's arm out of the socket.

Noise testing in gear is daft, you can map per gear (we do for SM ).

Rock supplied some of that gear i think , he has been involved for some time

At a local race I got noise tested and failed miserably. I didn't have time before practice to change out the exhaust and ecu, so I put my number plates on a friend bike (same model) that had already passed.
Luckily the tech was an old dude that only looked at the number and colour of the bike.
