1. RESTRICTED 125 CLASS DRIVERS
If you are a RESTRICTED 125cc Leopard class competitor, you have until the 1st January 2010 to comply.
You may change over at any time during this period.

2. IF YOU HAVE A KEY START IGNITION
If you own a new DIGITAL KEY START IGNITION, you have until 1st of May 2009 to comply.
For State and National Championships, you can stay as you are for all races until the 1st of May 2009.
After the 1st of May it is compulsory for Leopard class competitors to have a CDI Rev Limiter to compete in Leopard Class.

3. IF YOU HAVE A PUSH BUTTON IGNITION (Green & Red button)
If you have the OLD Green and Red push button type ignition - it is not eligible for State and National Championships or major Leopard-only events. But it is allowed at smaller club-day type meetings until 31st December 2009 (always check the supp-regs).

But if you wish to compete at any Major events then you will need to change-over to the new digital-K Key Start Ignition.

The cost for the change-over is $200.00 +10% gst

To be eligible for the change-over from the old green & red button to the new Digital-K Ignition you must first comply. You will need to download the application forms from the Official Leopard Engine website www.leopardengine.com


4. NEW GREEN CDI UNIT - AKA20L
From the 1st May 2009, the only eligible ignition module to be used in Leopard Class is a GREEN module marked with AKA20L.

You will need to have a DIGITAL-K KEY START IGNITION for the new GREEN CDI unit to work. The NEW GREEN CDI unit is digital technology, all old Green & Red push button ignitions are analogue and must be changed over by the 1st January 2010.

All NEW Leopard Engines purchased will include the green CDI unit at no extra charge. Use your old black CDI unit until the new Green CDI unit becomes available. The price of the Leopard engine remains the same at $2,995.00
