What do I need to do to my streetbike?

For my first ever track day. I literally have no idea. I know the coolant needs to be changed out for water wetter, but what else?
Thanks in advance to all

It totally depends on who's hosting the trackday. Also, do a search, this has been asked and answered (very well) many times in the past.

Here's an example:

Also, look at the NESBA info:

And don't forget to have one of us take it out for a few laps first, just to make sure you have it set up right. That's it to check your set up...

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

That's it? No safety wiring, water wetter, etc?

I'm all safety wired up thanks to the help of a CCS racer

With the weather being as cold as it's supposed to be do we even want to remove all the antifreeze? I drained mine and replaced it with Distilled water, but is that going to be safe?

It depends on what class you will be running....there are minimums for each class, but more safety prep is always welcomed.

Most beginner/intro classes require only minimal prep.

Since you will be in the beginer class, that is the minimum. Of course no one is going to complain if you do more.

Sweet, thanks Jon. I intend on riding like a scared little bitch that day anyway, so all will be well.

Are you going to RA on the 21st?

Also read the riders manual out on Nesba.com. It will explain what is expected and what you have to do.
