I have read the thing a couple of times and I dont see anything about safety wiring brake caliper bolts or axle pich bolts. Am I missing something. Also it states a kickstarter must be retained. Any ideas on a safe and easy way to do this on a KX450F Supermoto.

Actually it says "Kickstarter, if retained, must be secured at 2 points.". You arent required to keep a kickstarter, but if you do, you must make sure its secured at 2 points. How to secure it depends on you.

Brake caliper bolts and axle pinch bolts arent listed as "required" but its a pretty damn good idea to do them. Guy at blackhawk had a front caliper come off going into T1. Being it was a Buell and only had one front caliper, imaging what was goiong through his head when he hit the front brake and NOTHING from full speed.

I fully understand safety wiring as much as possible and have always done them but I thought is was manditory to do them. You can never be to safe.
