Default EFRA exhaust homologations!


Am curious as to what happens to exhausts that have an EFRA homologation number on them but the homologation has expired and not on the current list?


I realise rules change and some may not meet current 2014 rules, so does this make them illegal?

Thanks in advane a curious rum-bear!

If they are not on the current list then they are no longer allowed and therefore illegal. Sometimes the manufacturer will resubmit the item for renewal but sometimes it's an item that's been superseded and so no longer applicable. If you've got an item that you want to query you can speak to the Efra section rep.

First thing is that brands do come and go (like GRP) or change from manufacturer (Ninja, IDM etc). Exhaust from such brands do disappear automaticly because the different made engine needs a different exhaust.

Indeed a lot of exhausts are renewed on the list, even the 1st 3 chamber 9901 is on the list. Today there is no homologation but registration which need to be renewed every 1 or 2 years.

But these are only for EFRA events and a lot of countries do use this list. But outside europe or even with a lot of races within europe these pipes are still used (like the 2013) so if the need is high they still will be produced.
The quality of an answer comes with the quality of the question.
