Are those guys doing their hose clamps in a way that will pass tech with CCS?   If so, that'll save me a TON of time...

Do you have to safety wire hose clamps to pass tech with CCS?

from the 2007 rulebook:

Quote
5.2 MOTORCYCLE TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

5.2.13 All oil, fuel, and coolant carrying hoses or lines must be secured at all
connecting points by clips, clamps, safety wire, or other approved
means.


So do we NOT need to 'secure' them... or are the hose clamps condsidered the 'securing device' ?

Hose clamps are the securing device.

Off the top of my head I believe I have only had 3 things safety wired on all 3 of my race bikes over the last decade, that would be the oil drain plug, the oil filler, and the oil filter. I have never been questioned as to anything else not being safety wired, so I would assume that anything beyond those is pretty much an optional thing (not that more is a bad thing).

Are there any tech inspectors on the boards that can clear this up?   What exactly is gonna get me tossed out of tech?
