NESBA is requiring that your kickstand killswitch is in working order (they will check this in Tech). If not, they will require you to ziptie it etc.

This was the policy in April anyway. For more specific answers you might want to check out their website, or give them a call.

Different organizations have different requirements... best to check with whomever is running the individual event.

Yes. At Blackhawk this isnt up to the trackday orgs anymore. Track rules now state sidestands are either wired up or removed. After the incedent last year, track management made this ruling.

Rob, unless this is a very recent change, I believe (as stated) that NESBA will allow you to ride there as long as your killswitch is working properly in tech. I rode two days that way in April, and plan to do so again this weekend.

FYI

Well they haven't been enforcing this then. I have ran there this season without safety wiring, zip tieing, or removing the kick stand.
Best bet is like Kim said, check with the org. running the event.

Good info, guys. I haven't done anything with my stand and I don't want to have to take it off.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I had mine wired up and I was asked to remove the wiring at a NESBA trackday at BHF. They do want it working if the stand is on the bike.

Call Cindy at BHF.

If the org's tech isnt enforcing it, then they arent doing their job. There is a post here that was made after the crash about BHF's new rule.
