These combined weight limits now disadvantage smaller riders. In the smallest category, they make it fairer. The more weight and power the bike has, the less fair the rule becomes. Heavier riders can put more weight where they want it through the corners, which gives them a massive advantage on the bigger bikes. Heavier riders are also usually stronger too, so they can muscle the bigger bikes, especially when they have less weight to muscle than a smaller rider. The only real advantage the lighter guys had was in accelerating on the straights, and to a lesser extent, braking. Combined weight limits don't make racing fairer, they simply shift skew natural advantages. Next they'll give fuel penalties for talented riders, so that crap riders have a chance too...
