Tom, there's been a lot of discussion about this on the LSRM LinkedIn group that Carol Carpenter (Rainbow Aviation) moderates. Here's part of the answer (I need to research the rest):
FAR 91.327 (b) No person may operate an aircraft that has a special airworthiness certificate in the light-sport category unless --
(4) The owner or operator complies with each safety directive applicable to the aircraft that corrects an existing unsafe condition.
There was apparently a Letter of Interpretation from FAA Legal that opined "safety directive" includes manufacturer's service bulletins. Note also that it's a little worse than I thought -- this reg applies to all LSAs, not just those in commercial service.
I'll post the 100 hour inspection and TBO rules when I have time to research the references.
