Tech Questions
« on: December 26, 2010, 05:12:35 pm »
I've begun preparing my 04 GSXR 600 to do some racing next year. I have a few questions I'm hoping some of you folks can answer.

1. Is Engine Ice allowed?
2. If I'm an Amateur and my bike is yellow, can I simply just put the vinyl numbers on the front of the nose with a plate?
3. Are ride-side engine cases required? I have one on the left (stator) side already.
4. Does anything outside of the list below, NEED to be wired or siliconed?

Pinch Bolts on Forks
Front Caliper Mounting Bolts
Rear Caliper Mounting Bolts
Rear Axle Nut
Oil Drain Plug
Oil Fill Cap
Oil Filter

not sure, don't know of many that use it (in fact don't know anyone that does).. have read where it can break down over time. Horrible for fuel system..

Been using fuel foam for years, just not the same foam.
And you will probably have to outline your #plate in a black line, I don't quite understand, but tech inspectors seem to want it

Just to be safe, you might want to safety wire the safety wire too.  :biggrin:

Safety wiring your butt to the seat has worked out pretty good for you, hasn't it Noid?   :biggrin:
