Prepping your motorcycle for the track remains one of the biggest concerns for new riders, but it’s actually a very quick and easy process. In most cases, your bike can go from street-trim to track-ready in just 15 minutes and by using some very common tools.
No need to tape over your headlights, turn signals and brake lights. If you do, we suggest using painter’s tape in order to make removal cleaner and easier after your event. We do ask, please disconnect the brake light.
Tape or remove. Again, we suggest using painter’s tape for this application.
Tape over with duct tape.
Remove or cover with tape.
If you are using a camera, make sure it is tethered down to your bike with safety wire or an equivalently strong alternative.
- Make sure your throttle snaps back into place by itself.
- Make sure all of your controls operate and function normally (front and rear brake controls, clutch, etc.)
- Visually confirm that your oil and brake fluid levels are sufficient.
- Check your chain tension.
- Wipe down your bike thoroughly and check for fluids and leaks.
- Check for any loose parts that may be at risk of falling off of the motorcycle (rearsets, exhaust, sliders, bodywork, etc.)
- Make sure your oil plug and drain plug are on tight. We recommend safety-wiring or using silicone on these components, but this is not required.
