ADR's SA...

Post by Prof » Fri Jul 30, 2010 9:00 am

Posted this elsewhere, thought it should go here too...

In SA ADR's were adopted in 61. But all bikes in SA except some of the very vintage stuff, are obliged to conform to a basic set of standards including 550 rule, central mounted taillight, a reflector, brake on each wheel, rear chain guarded up to 300mm from rear most peg, pillion pegs if a pillion seat, high low beam, horn. Number plate must be illuminated. Post 88 have some more requirements (mainly noise). Post 91 need indicators. Pre 75 need only one mirror. Post 34 need a stop light.

all hydraulic brake lines mus t have permanent ID markings

All bikes must be fitted with two mudguards that " catch or deflect downwards any stones, mud, water or other material which may be thrown up by the roatation of the wheels). How this is judged in practice I am not sure, but to be safe a gurad/numberplate that covers the rear wheel vertically seems the safe bet. Rear guards on cars need to finish at 45 degrees as measured from axle, so it could be argued that this si satisfactory for bike rear guards as well.

handle bars... Pre 88... lowest part of hand grip must less than 380mm above attachment point to motorcycle;
Post 88... Lowest part of handgrip must be less than 380mm above lowest part of upper surface of riders seat.

Max handle bar width for all bikes is 900mm

Noise levels... pre 85 100 decibels. Post 85 94 decibels. I watched a vehicle being noise tested by a local engineer recently. Vehicle had to drive by at 60kph and tester was set about 15m from vehicles path.

This information taken from the latest information bulletin (bulletin 6) this is what is received form Regency when enquiries are made as to what a person can and can't do to a bike. If you are modifying your bike, call the Motor Reg in your state and ask for this information telling them the year of your bike.

Adr's go into intricate detail including braking distances etc, but the above is what they send us, so presumably what we need to comply with.

Post 98 (ADR57/00) rules are much stricter and require operation of indicator/horn/high/low buttons with hand on grip, idiot lights must be labelled, foot change must be on left, self closing throttle, E marked lights.

I can find nothing in regs about welded handlebars.

NCOP8 Section LL. 2.2

'The heating or welding of steering components will only be accepted if the modification in question is accompanied by a satisfactory report from a Signatory or Metallurgist.'

This will be applied to handlebars according to engineer.

I was lucky and found the Moto Guzzi Bellagio 2007 has 1 1/4" T bars that are 22mm at the ends for switch gear and it is an ADR compliant bike.

So a set of 1 1/4" harley bars, sleeved, welded and powdercoated and Bingo.....bellagio bars mr engineer...honest...

Yeah Prof they dont give you much room to move on a standard bike unless you have the time & money to go an engineered bike.
I'm still reading & trying to make sense of the EPA's driveby instructions for the noise levels tests.
