Is front fender necessary?

Alright...stupid question. Is it really necessary to put my front fender back on the track bike? I did not get the sharkskinz fender and I'd hate to trash the stocker. Will rocks and shit fly up and screw up my brake lines and radiator?

Per CCS rulebook:

"All oil/fuel and coolant carrying hoses or lines must be secured at all conneting points by clips,clamps,safetywire or other approved means"

" On 4stroke machines crankcase vent tubes must be routed into a heat resistant catch can of at least 350cc capacity or to the airbox."

"Radiator overflow and battery vent tubes may be routed to a separate catch can that need not be vented into the intake area."

damm good find mark
i was about to suggest just routing them over the back wheel threw the sub frame guess that wouldda been a bad idea


p.s. that was a joke..and never route them as such..those slippery fluids will get on your rear tire and cause an accident!

Basically yeah...

I prefer a classy beer can like Natural Light . It is heat resistant and of more than 350cc capacity. So have a beer and install your catch can.

Can I put it in the belly?

Or should I rerun the hoses under the seat somewhere?

Last time I checked most trackdays Advanced groups tech requirements pretty much mirror clubracing tech rules. You wanna be ready for that bumpup to advanced don't ya???

Never seen a catch can in a belly pan...???

I'd put it under the seat just to be safe...it would suck to miss a session to have to redo it at the track if tech didn't approve.
