1. Terms and conditions

A) If a change or modification to the stock engine or its parts is not included in these rules then the modification is considered illegal 
B) The word "stock" mean un-modified factory original parts or components
C) No mixing of parts from different years and make engines even if made by the same manufacturer.  

03-04 Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 may use the 05-06 Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 cylinder head through the 2020 U6SA season. This is the ONLY mixing of parts permitted!

2. Overall Engine

· No limited production race motors allowed. Must be a Production Motorcycle Engine, 4 cylinder, 4 stroke

· No Titanium anywhere in or on the engine, unless it comes stock form manufacturer of engine on production bike or bolts in aftermarket rods

· Must have engine, clutch, and transmission all in one unit

· Must be Chain Drive

3. Bore and stroke

· 600cc Maximum displacement for an engine model that was new in 2006 or newer. Older engines maximum displacement is 637cc. Engine model is defined as a manufacturer redesign of overall engine. See specification list. 

· No strokers or de-stroked engines

4. Head and cams

A) NO PORTING or deporting of intake or exhaust runners.
I) Valve jobs, valve grinding, valve seating, valve seal modification and valve seat cutting are allowed. 

II) Valve seat inserts may be reworked or replaced with any seat of original dimensions. Any dimensional thickeness of the stock inserts may not be increased. Valve seats can be ground with multiple angles. Blending of the valve seat into the head is permitted but cannot extend more than 1/4 inch into the aluminum head measured from where the seat meets the head. 

B) OEM Head Only
C) Cam may not have a higher lift than the stock factory cam. (duration is open)
D) ​Valves can not be larger in diameter than factory stock valves

6. Bottom End

- No machining to remove weight from the crank (balancing  of crank is ok) (no after-market cranks) (no lightweight cranks) No polishing or coatings of any kind

-No Aluminum connecting rods

-No Dry sump systems are allowed unless it comes from the motorcycles manufacturer as original equipment. 

7. Clutch/Transmission

- No removal of clutch

- Clutch must remain operational 

· No modification to the stock transmission gears, no close-ratio gears or nonstandard gear ratios. All gears must remain in transmission, no removing of any gears. 

No polishing or coatings of any kind permitted

8. Ignition

A) No aftermarket ECU's, stock appearing ECU only. ECU must be a production ECU that was originally supplied by the same manufacturer as the engine. Racing ECU's may be used, as long as they were originally supplied by the same manufacturer as the engine. EX: Honda motorcycle engines must run ECU's that were supplied by Honda on their motorcycle engines. Reflashing of ECU and factory race ECU's are allowed. Rev limit for all 600cc (nothing larger than 600cc) engines is 16, 100 RPMS. Rev limit for all 636cc engines is 14, 800 RPMS. U6SA specified Rev limit must remain intact at all times (no switched or gear specific limiters). If a computer is hooked up to check the ECU it must be set to U6SA specific RPM's, no tolerance. See specifications list for RPM limits. 

B) All cars must have the PA standard connector for the track to check engine RPM rev limit. These are available from the chassis manufacturers and engine builders, and at the track. All cars must leave intact the RPM wire coming from the ECU. 

C) No aftermarket coil

D) No gear position sensor may be used. The sensor may be in place on the engine, but can not have any wires connected to it. Gear position wire from ECU may not be switchable. 

E) No traction control device  

F) No more than one ECU box present in or on the car

G) A 50 RPM over rev tolerance for the purpose of tech in section is acceptable. (Note: this does not mean you can turn up the RPMS in any ECU by any amount)

H) Switchable wires for changing ignition maps, fuel maps, or rev limits must be contained and secured in the wiring harness. (the wires must be taped up, not visible, and unable to be switched in any way)


9. Induction system

· No mechanically forced induction (turbo charging, supercharging)

· Any carburetors may be used on any engine, regardless of year of engine
I) Note: Switching to carburetors on engines that came with fuel injection usually increased the rev limiter due to the removal of the injections as the ECU cuts fuel to limit RPM's before it cuts the ignition. A reflash of the ECU will be required if using carburetors in order to comply with the rev limit rule 7, A)

· If the engine did not come from the factory with fuel injection, fuel injection may not be used

10. Exhaust

· Any exhaust may be used, as long as there is a muffler included with the system that will keep noise levels within individual track limits.
