Wheels shall be free of any defects, bends or cracks
Tires shall be free of any defects, cracks and dry rot. The manufacture date of all tires shall be less than 5 years old, i.e. 4012 or newer. (The 4012 indicates 40th week of 2012, any tire older than that will not be allowed). Absolutely no patched, plugged or in any way repaired tires will be allowed. Tires must be approved for the anticipated speeds of your motorcycle. No tubes or tube type tires allowed. Tires must have adequate tread, minimum 3/32 and/or not into the wear indicators. DOT tires are preferred although roadracing slicks will be considered. Drag slicks are not allowed.
Motorcycle must have a functioning front and rear brake in top notch operating condition. This includes proper fluid levels, pad or shoe wear, no cracks or abrasions in hydraulic lines, no leaks and rotors and drums in top operating condition. Brake lever and pedal must have a firm feel and must not impinge upon the handlebar. All brake components must be properly secured and torqued.
Frame, forks, suspension components, chain and sprockets must be in top operating condition, structurally sound and adjusted properly. This includes, but is not limited to, no cracks or shoddy repairs of frames, no leaking forks or shocks. Chain and sprockets must be in good condition and adjusted properly. An LSR rated metal chain guard is desired (.100 material) but the OEM chain guard specific to that motorcycle will be allowed. Rear axle cotter pin or suitable clip must be installed where applicable.
All axles, suspension components, etc., must be properly secured and torqued.
All controls including proper handlebar rotation from stop to stop (the bar hitting the gas tank or fairing is not allowed), self-closing throttle, a kill switch or key accessible to the rider are required.
Levers must not be broken or have pointed ends. They must have the balls on the end.
A properly installed steering damper is required.
A lanyard type kill switch that attaches to the ride and kills all power is required. Attaching to the existing kill switch or rocker switch is not suitable.

All bodywork must be properly secured.
Cameras and camera mounts must be secure and not interfere with the rider.
No leaks or loose items will be tolerated.
Approval of all of the above is at the discretion of the tech inspector. The motorcycle must be in tip top operating condition. This is for your own safety.
Safety wiring of the front axle and pinch bolts, oil fills, dip stick (where required), oil drains, and oil filter are highly recommended though not required at this time.
