what is needed to drag race your bike?

Hi, I'm looking for some answeres about drag racing a motorcycle.

More specifically, what type of gear do you need and what do you need done to your bike for tech inspection?

I've checked in to road racing, and there are specific things needed (mainly safety wire everything) but is there anything specific to drag your bike?

I'm not talking competitively, just once in a while down to Byron Dragway.

I'm assuming as much gear as you can, but do you need leathers? I have the helmet, gloves, jacket but no pants yet. The jacket is textile and the pants will probably be Icon textile pants. Do I need leathers, I know I should have them but what do you guys think?

Thanks

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Weird......all you REALLY need is a bike and a stop/go lights....you may not get a time slip but there's no tech inspection/gear requirements.
