This is not what you might think it is...

Please note that this is not a consultation into the EU Regulation, but is a consultation into the UK Government's Impact Assessment of the Regulation. Very Different!!

It's a 95 page document full of stats and reasoning. I understand MAG officials are to be discussing the content with the DfT later this week.

Anti Tampering Laws

This is just another way for the government to reduce the number of motorcycles on the road.......reduce the number of people using motorcycles reduces our ability to fight ever more draconian laws...this is another example such as the farce over the testing, along with maing it more difficult and a lot more expensive to gain a licence.......The government (along with Europe) want us off the road, and they will just keep chipping away until we all say "enough, I'm getting out"..........mark these have been warned......!!!

OBD Port

I give it a couple of weeks before there are a plethora of ebay OBD cables available, and software suites designed to allow us access to the OBD functions. (Already in existence for many types of car)

The more function and control you try to put into an ECU, the more function and control you effectively give to your end users, because the desire to alter it becomes stronger.

I'm not personally worried by the suggestions, after market parts will be available for "track use only", and will be more subtley badged so as to not look out of place. Provided the new parts don't make the vehicle offensively loud, or clearly unbalanced, the police will have better things to do with there time... And if the onboard OBD says it's fine.... :D
