Rider and Bike Requirements.
Everyone must read and understand
before riding on the track.
Axle sliders, peg sliders are a must. We can not gouge the track.
Rigid hand guards, like Acerbis, Cycra are required.
Gas vent lines must be routed into a catch can. We can not drip gas on the asphalt. A Red Bull can can be used.
Tires and brakes must be in good condition. No visible cracks or dry-rot.
Valve stems should have caps.
Check for oil, fuel and coolant leaks and missing bolts/screws. All parts must be secure. No loose bolts/fasteners.
Check your tire pressures! We don’t check it for you. Use tire manufacturer’s recommended pressure.
Headlights, turn signals, and all glass or plastic lenses must be removed or taped over. Remove mirrors. Try not to use a tape that will leave too much adhesive behind. Most use blue painter’s tape.
Kill-switch must be functioning and throttle return should work smoothly without sticking or hanging up.
Regular Glycol Based coolant is not permitted .Glycol based coolants are as slick as oil on the asphalt. Bikes must run alternative coolant such as water or a non-ethyl glycol based anti-freeze. Approved brands are: Engine Ice, Super Cool, Kool Aid, Water Wetter, Evans, and 7th Gear. You will be asked what you are using at Tech.
It is also highly recommended, but not required, to safety wire the oil drain plug, oil filter, and oil fill cap. Keep in mind that if you spill oil on the track; not only is your day over, but you may create a hazardous condition for the rest of the riders as well.
If you can not safety wire it, a dab of Silicone sealer applied to the fastener and case can be used.
Chain not too loose or too tight. Spoke wheels check for any loose or broken spokes.
Kick-stands must be able to remain securely in the up position, or be removed. Center stands are not recommended due to clearance issues.
Full face, damage-free helmet: Motocross style helmet with goggles.
Gloves are required. Gauntlet style that cover the wrist are recommended.
Over -the-ankle riding boots are required.
One-piece or two-piece leathers that zip together. Keep in mind that leather is the most abrasion-resistant gear. Gear must provide full body coverage and have reinforced/padded elbows, shoulders, knees, and spine/back areas. Hip padding is also recommended.
Back protector is highly recommended for all groups.
Motocross style gear is allowed.
Pit – Things To Bring:
Food: Liquids (Bring water and an electrolyte replenishing drink, i.e., Gatorade. It’s best to drink both throughout the day); snack foods (power bars, granola bars, etc.)
No alcohol permitted.
Clothing: Hat, sweatshirt, shorts, T-shirt, and sandals.
Miscellaneous: Sunscreen, chapstick, sunglasses, camera, canopy and weights/heavy objects to tie canopy down, chairs, gas, aspirin/ibuprofen, driver’s license, health insurance card, cash, credit card, pen, first-aid kit.
Tools: Duct tape, compressed air, bike stands, wrenches and other tools, tire gauge, tape measure, battery charger, extra bike parts.
Don’t forget your ignition key if your bike needs one!
Relax. Prepare ahead of time so you’re not rushing.
If your bike needs extra attention, take the time to get it right. It’s better to miss a few minutes of track time than to have a problem on the track, at speed.
Pit - Things to do, not to do .
This is a Cold Pit. You can push your bike to the hot pit with it running, but there is No Riding in the Cold Pit.
Fueling is to be done in the dirt area, Not on asphalt. Spills happen, and we dont want to be responsible for damaging the asphalt.
