What do I need to do to race?

If I can make the race at sugar river, what are the bike requirements? I'm running water for coolant, and have safety wired the oil drains / screens / filter covers, and have axle sliders.

I imagine I need to remove the sidestand and disable the switch? Do I need handguards? Anything else?

Kevin

Ask me how to get a free kick in the teeth!

Sounds like you have it all set - Just remove that kick stand - Hand guards are not needed

From SMJ:


1.Drain Plug's and oil filter bolt's Wired and also Waterpump drain plug.
2. no antifreeze allowed = Waterweter or Water depending on some track's check out http://www.supermotospectacular.com/...moto/index.php and http://www.superbikers2.com/
3.Numbers on the bike = Pretty open just make sure they can read them is about the only thing they are concerned with.


And a lil vid for help

You can use anything - Geo used a "NOS" Can as pictured below held on w/zip ties
