    I can fully understand Governments putting a stop to modifying Self Drive Vehicles in the name of safety and people fitting exhaust systems that create more Co2 emissions but obviously we need to oppose legislation that restricts other modifications such as tuning.

    would this include changing brake pads and tyres from the ones the manufacturers fit too?

    The way I read it it is to do with things that affect pollution and performance. Service items like brake pads and tyres or oil and fluids would be excluded as I assume would things like mirrors or handlebar grips or other items that don’t relate to emissions.
    The wording may be a little all encompassing at the moment but you can be sure that it will be tightened up before anything serious happens with it.
    I’m more concerned with the proposals that vehicles will have automatic speed limiters that is floating around. Your vehicle, including your motorcycle will use GPS and camera data to work out what the speed limit is on a road and will make it difficult for you to exceed that limit. The reverse side of this is the the authorities will be able to reduce the max speed of vehicles remotely at say accident or road works sites.

    I'm not sure how much it's likely to affect modifying your bike, but from the anti-tampering proposal document:-

    Tackling tampering

    We define a system, part or component as:

    "software and/or hardware that impacts on:

        the environment;
        road safety; or
        security”

    This would include examples such as those which assist or fulfil the driving task,
    control power, speed or emissions, protects road users or protects the vehicle from tampering.

    You can download a copy from the DfT and take part in the survey to read more and give your views.

    We may end up with the German style TuV standards for any non OE equipment you buy for your bike??
