  • Track rules

    What kind of rules do you typically run into at the track? I'm interested in both the obvious and not so obvious things.

    I know you have to tape headlights, turn signals, remove tags and mirrors, but other than that I'm not too sure.

    Surely the company that organises the track days has a website or a phone number that you can check the rules on.

    When I went there were 2 pages of rules on their website.

    FWIW, how much does an artificial foot cost? $200?

      Full length is going to be the norm in this case.

      EDIT.. I should clarify....

      If the boots do not come up and cover your shin area, they are not going to pass tech.

        Don't most racing organizations require a bit of safety wiring? Passing tech seems to be the most trouble people have with tracks

        Oh yeah and if you drive like an idiot you get yanked. There are a lot of rules about passing and how much room you give the other riders.
        90% of motorcycle forum members do not have a service manual for their bike.

          Out here almost all of them want the oil drain plug and filter safety wired. If you're in the Novice group you get alot more leeway.

              I'm totally content with the Novice group. I just want to get on the track and dog it out so I don't do it on the streets.

                Depends on the organizers but normally...

                leathers with a 360 zipper (if wearing a 2 pc)
                oil drain bolt siliconed if not safety wired
                signals(rear) and mirrors removed
                DOT Helmet
                full gauntlet gloves
                some require a "proper" back protector, not the chintzy foam one that comes with most jackets
                throttle must snap back when released
                water wetter instead of coolant

                and some tracks have a DB Limit, Calabogie was IIRC 95DB at 8-10K rpm

                  Most tracks have a very lenient set of requirements for novice riders using their own machine on the track for the first time... but they also tend to run slower speeds.
