Jennings GP trac prep help

What are the specifics for getting my bike ready for the track. I'm going to Jennings and I have searched but not much luck. Also what has to be done cause I'm still riding on the street.

PM me if you have a red clip for an Arai side pod.

taped off lights, removed license plate and mirrors, also unplug the headlight and taillight connectors so the lights dont run.
you cant remove the fuse though.
Ive run at Jennings with coolant in the rad, but it was winter time and near freezing at times when I was there.

make sure your tires have at least 50% tread life left on them, as well as your brake pads.
that should be enough for B and I groups.

If you are going there with a organization like STT look on their website to see what the requirements are..

Jennings is a fast track have fun! I would have been going this month but a broken femur due to Talladega GP is not allowing me to lol

They're not gonna inspect it, but you should hook it up anyway. A ride-off will get pretty exciting if you don't have a rear brake.

BTW, take off the mirrors and license plate, tape the lights (with painters tape)and you're ready to go. Simple.

BTW, take your mirrors off using the two small fasteners, not the one big one.

Definitely true!

BLUE,

Check out the track day checklist stickied to this section. It has what you need for a track day.

As for Jennings,

Who are you going with? If it is a Jennings run day, you won't get teched. But, if it is another organization, you may have to have some of the things done like a working rear brake.

Your minimum track prep is to tape the lights, remove the turn signals, remove the fender, and zip tie anything that could fall off (like passenger pegs).

Thanks for driving that hybrid...and saving all the gas for me!

Why? I've always done it that way. It doesn't seem to be a problem and leaving the mirror plate on helps hold the fairing in place.

To the OP, ask the trackday provider. Each one could have slightly different specs to follow. Usually you don't have to safety wire your bike unless you're running in the elite/advanced group.

I mainly asked about the rear brake because for some reason the pad in the caliper is kinda twisted so like only half the pad actually touches the caliper. I am also planning to go with that trackday event on the 19th -20th from I believe it niner1000. Hopefully there not booked up yet.

PM me if you have a red clip for an Arai side pod.

Niner will be doing Tech, so I would ask him. I know he doesn't ride with fluid in his rear, so I don't know that he is against it, but...better safe than sorry...

yea EVERY track day organizer has their own tech requirements.

For us, check the flyer on the sign up page, it has everything that you will need to know.

;)


"at 8k i often get the tire to slip a bit(kinda like stoner in motogp) when i start to get on the throttle"

I've never been able to get those big fasteners off. I also saw another guy having the same problem at the track. I figured they were locktited or something.
