Windscreen passing tech
« on: October 05, 2004, 11:18:18 am »
Quick question.

Does my windscreen have to be completely intact in order to pass tech?  That is, would it fail it a part of it was pieced together with glue and packaging tape?

I know that I'd be allowed to finish a race with a damaged windscreen.  But what about starting a race with a repaired windscreen?

Probably not.

Just race without it.

Seriously?  A windscreen isn't a required part?

I seriously don't think you need it.  For instance, I've seen a Ducati Monster, and a few Buell's on the race track, and they didn't have windscreens  :-/  I can't see why you'd need it other than "aerodynamics."

When you're as slow as I am, every little reduction in wind resistance is a good thing ;)

Yes, last year, I raced with a broken windscreen for a few weekends.

No one seemed to have one available for new bikes.  And the number plate was part of the windscreen...so...

Thanks to everyone for the feedback.

Super Dave, are you saying "yes" to the question that the windscreen is required to be completely intact (if one is pressent)?   If I apply your "yes" to either of my first 2 questions, then I'm a bit puzzled how you got past tech with a damaged/repaired windscreen.

No one required me to get one.

And none were available.

remember bodywork is not required either as long as it has a catch pan and fluid retention. even on newer bikes.
