Tech Inspection List for STT

This is what track coaches look for when we are teching your bike. Just a FYI.

START FROM THE FRONT OF THE BIKE

-Check brake pads
-Check clip ons are tight
-Pull front brake lever.....
-Does throttle return correctly
-Does kill switch work
-Is chain too tight or too loose (many are too tight)
-Tire condition and recommended air pressure
-Foot pegs on correctly
-Shifter linkage connected to shift shaft tight (i have found a handful are too loose) please double check this
-Exhaust on tight, not falling off
-Body work secure
-Lights, blinkers taped
-Mirrors removed or taped up
-Wheel weights taped
-Drain plug wired pulling tight (Advanced)
-Fill cap wired pulling tight (Advanced)
-Ask about coolant.. I and A group

The oil filter is optional.. what we REALLY want is that drain plug wired and the filler can be RTV if not wired.

Also advise Intermediate riders that they should consider at least RTV silicone on the drain plug and filler cap...

I won't be at RA this weekend. I'm flying out to Edmonton this afternoon and won't be around. I could either spend a boat load or make a boat load. I chose to make some money.

Any good quality duct tape is fine. Just make sure the surface is clean on the wheel where you are sticking the tape.

Duct tape is good for the wheel weights but DON'T use it on your lights!!
Use blue painters tape on your lights. (if you can't pull the fuse, make sure no light is leaking from the tail light.)

Using duct tape on the lights will leave a sticky residue that's a PITA to get off. Painters tape sticks well and comes off clean.
