How strict is Nesba?

I am starting my first trackday with another organization, and I was comparing that one with NESBA and it seems to me that NESBA is really strict on their bike prep inspection. My bike is not perfect by all means, I have two screws not doing their job, one on my front fender and on a side panel. I was just wondering if I do decide to change to NESBA next year do i have to fix those and every other imperfections, and make my bike almost perfect?

Well the side panel should be fine because i am guessing thereare other fastners holding it on. It is for your saftey and the others on the track that your bike is prepared. You would feel pretty bad if something came flying off your bike at 100 MPH and hit someone on the track with it and killed them just because you where to lazy to prep your bike.


You should be fine with 1 or two fastners missing. Your bike doesn't have top be perfect as not alot of the bikes on the track are they just have to be safe. As long as you bike is not falling apart and leaking stuff you will be ok

BTW if you want any track guy can take a quick look at your bike just to give you an idea. I live in Chicago also by Sox park so i can even do this for you for peace of mind.

If there is a safety hazard, they will call you on it. And if its a safety hazard, wouldnt you WANT to fix it?

Zip ties hold my bike together.

Ask anyone that has seen it.

They are your friend.

The only thing holding on my tail section and keeping it from hitting nobody since im so freakin slow is 6 zip ties.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

Nesba isn't strict, they just make sure we are safe. You will see some mangled ugly bikes out there with missing bodywork, but all parts on your bike to have to be secure so they don't fall off. Use zip ties if you have to.

NESBA is strict when it comes to safety. When it comes to appearances, we don't care if you even have body work on. So... YES! NESBA does a great job of Tech Inspection (I am clearly biased, but I have heard from others that we do a very thorough inspection and that helps catch things that might put you on your head). NO, NESBA doesn't want to look for excuses to keep you off the track.

Take Steve up on the inspection points. He is really good with that kinda stuff. Also, feel free to read the Riders Manual on the NESBA web site.

that is so true.

I once made it through a "tech inspection" at a non NESBA event. All they seemed to care was whether the drain bolt was ... now read this ... covered with silicone (which is a fine adhesive for its purpose) ! Mind you , my bike does not look perfect. However that kind of tech inspection "rigor" really made me concerned who I ride with.

Thanks for the advice. I just thought that I was going need to look over my bike over with a micro-scope.

NESBA isnt strict when it comes to tech inspection, they are thourough. What they are looking for in the tech inspection are all legitimate safety concerns. Other orgs that i have ridden with give you a very brief once over of the bike and slap a sticker on your bike, at that point I usually re-tech my bike myself if i havent already went over it myself. It just gives me piece of mind.

Jesse couldn't have said it better.

If you need a hand settin up the bike and you are coming out near the Autobahn, look me up. I'll be more than happy to get the bike where it needs to be.

Exactly.......



Imagine that getting jammed in the rear wheel with five of your riding friends right behind you.



I look at tech inspection differently..... I RELY on a good set of eyes to look
my stuff over before I go out and ride it to it's limits. We all get rushed and
forget stuff..... I would rather have someone say "hey, this thing is loose" in
the pits and make me fix it that have it come loose on the track and bite me.

If you are up North, I'll gladly tech your bike pre track-day to insure that your
trackday tech will go smoothly.


Someone else said that other orgs give it an easy once over... when this
happens to me... I buddy up with another friend and we harshly inspect
each others bikes before we go out.


Additionally, If i wrench on the bike mid-day ( tires whatever ) I ALWAYS
have someone else re-tech everything I touched.

Ride the bike to work dummy I can go through it for you. I think I may have told you this 1 or 100 times already. I also offered to help you safety wire it, change fluids and check everything else out multiple times. Hey what do I know.

I have zip tied many a panel together to keep it from moving

What Blarney said. Even though most all of the CRs tech bikes every weekend.... we still send a CR out to the CR pits to tech bikes every morning. I always try to have someone else tech my bike.
