FULL RACE Preparation is not required for the PENGUIN SCHOOL or any NESBC classes except F300 & Motard.

Preparing a motorcycle to race is quite different from preparing a motorcycle for the school, which can be typically be done in less than an hour.  Riders do 
NOT need to race prepare their motorcycle to participate in the mock start for the Basic course. 

Race bikes need to have all of the street gear removed (lights, mirrors, signals and stands).  Most riders will purchase race bodywork with an oil retaining belly pan for their motorcycle, although it is not required in all race organizations (including LRRS) for all models.  The strongly recommend this as it adds to both the safety of you and other competitors in the case of a severe oil leak.  The antifreeze must be completely flushed out of the cooling system and be replaced with pure water or an approved coolant (see rulebook link below).

Race bikes must also be safety wired.  A good rule of thumb to start is that anything that holds oil or water (like drain bolts and fill plugs) needs to be wired, as well as anything that holds on your brakes or wheels (like caliper bolts and pinch bolts, etc...).  Rear axle nuts can be held with clips or cotter pins.

Finally, all bikes must be equipped with number plates on the front and on either side of the motorcycle.  If you have bodywork and are painting on number plates - always make the plates bigger than you think you need them to be (small plate backgrounds is a very common error).

This list is a good place to start.  For a complete rulebook, click the link below.  We are happy to help with any questions that you may have.
