Blackened Posted July 21, 2021 Report Share Posted July 21, 2021 I'm going through the motion of preparing my bike for August 3rd at VIR which is my first ever track day. The bike is a 2002 VFR in good shape and I don't expect there to be any problems when I get to the track, but I'd hate to show up and find out my bike won't pass safety inspection because I missed something. What I've done so far: Checked all fluids for level and quality confirmed there are no leaks anywhere Installed new brake pads and bedded them in Verified Chain and sprockets - These were replaced about 1000 miles ago and are in good shape Tires have maybe... 600 miles on them and have not been ridden on aggressively. A few questions: I have the original factory cover over the pillion section of the seat. Do I need to remove this? Do I need to remove my mirrors? Is there a checklist I can find somewhere that has all of this information? I have to think there is one out there somewhere but this was all I could find at the CSS site: Good tires (90% TREAD) Good brakes and throttle action No fluid leaks NOTE: We will tape your mirrors at the track. If that's it then I am good to go, but as I said it would be awful to show up and find out different. For Safety gear: 1 yr old Bell Helmet (Qualifier DLX with MIPS) Riding gloves with knuckle protection Leather boots with 10'' upper I'll be renting a suit so hopefully that covers my bases there. My thanks out to the more experienced! B Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
