    Default Tech Inspection

    Everyone, I'm the Tech Inspector this year and Brian is my trusty assistant. Below is the list of requirements from the rule Book.

    1. Drill and safety wire oil drain plugs and filler caps – may substitute with silicone sealant or equivalent.
    2. No leaking fluids of any kind; oil, water or fuel.
    3. No antifreeze in cooling system; wetter water or equivalent ok.
    4. Carb and fuel overflow hoses MUST be routed into a suitable catch container – radiator overflow recommended.
    5. Number plates must be securely attached and be easily read from 50 feet.
    6. Remove kickstand – mini classes may retain kick stand if secured.
    7. Wheels and tires in race condition; no loose spokes, flat or damaged tires.
    8. Throttle operates freely and smooth.
    9. No loose parts.
    10. Lights and turn signal indicators should be removed; tape over glass head lamp ok.
    11. Properly mounted peg sliders are mandatory; and other devices that protect the racing surface such as axle sliders are HIGHLY encouraged.
    12. Failure to abide by the technical regulations may result in not passing technical inspection and not participating in the race event.


    Saturday afternoon 3:30-5:00PM tech will be open. This is the preferred tech time as we will all be in a rush Sunday morning.
    Sunday morning, tech will be open 8AM-9AM (Practice should start at 9AM).

    Tech will be in the hot pits. Look for the Tech sign.

    No bikes may enter the track any time Sunday without tech sticker. Bikes having gone through tech on Saturday do not have to be inspected again on Sunday.


    Also note that sound checks will be done this weekend. This will not be part of the tech inspection but will be done during practice and during race day.

    See you at the race.

    Yeah. good point. For the minis, I need to find out if we're going to enforce the sliders on them. Might be just for 200cc + bikes. I leave the final word on that to Ron and Kurt.

    For any bikes that sliders aren't made for, cut a piece of plastic, drill a couple of holes and zip tie them to the bottom of the foot pegs. Make sure the zip ties are inboard of the peg so they won't wear as the day progresses. Ron said he'll have some plastic at the track that people can do this with, but prolly best to get it done ahead of time.

    For a place to buy the plastic, I suggest TAP Plastic. That's where I buy mine for my boot sliders.

    You should be able to buy some small pieces of UHMW and make a simple peg slider.

    OK, I spoke w/ Ron and Kurt, for the mini class bikes, peg sliders are not required. They're only required for the big bike classes.

    Having done some Tech inspections last year... and hearing loads of excuses, etc...
    The biggest problems I found were 1)lack of catch cans, and
    2) sticking throttles!
    A sticking throttle is bad, bad, bad...
    It's pretty simple, if your throttle does not return on it's own,
    you've got a problem and you should not, will not, be allowed on the track.
    For your own safety, as well as, everyone else's.

    However, if you do get in a bind with something, ask around...we are all willing to help someone out when in need.
    (I usually have a good supply of zip-ties, duct tape, safety wire, etc)
