Track day mods for a 9'r

Not sure if this should go here or in the 919 stable, so if it's wrong, can a moderator please move?

I've read the Corner Speed rule book about how to mod a bike for a beginner's-type track day experience (or any track day for that matter). I've looked at the pictures, and now would like to know how the oil filter and oil filler cap mods are made. I don't see any good chunks cast into the block to tie into, so what's the best way to do it on the 9?

Thanks!

Rodney

Get a large enough hose clamp to go around the oil filter and then find a bolt head close enough to drill through. Safety wire through the clamp screw and to the drilled bolt head.

Edit: Better yet, you're only an hour away. Bring it over to my garage and I'll show you how.

are they requiring safety wire for a track day? if not then i wouldn't do it. I've ridden my 9ner on a few track days and never had a problem with either of those items.

normally the beginner group does not need to be wired.

If he is riding with Cornerspeed, Aaron requires it to be safety wired.

Bike Preparation Requirements:

Bikes must have oil fill cap, oil drain plug and oil filter safety-wired.
Liquid cooled bikes must run water only or racing approved coolant only, no anti-freeze.
Remove mirrors, tape over all glass and lights. AND Tape over the speedometer. You do not need the speedometer on the racetrack. It is an unsafe distraction.
Tires must be Sport or Race compound with good tread depth. New tires are recommended.
Side stand and/or Center stand must be secured in the up position using safety wire or zip ties. We prefer that you remove it but it is not required. You are required to have the stands secured in the up position before going onto the racetrack.
We reserve the right to turn anyone away whose bike does not meet the above requirements. It is your responsibility to have these basic requirements done. No refunds will be given.

Thanks, Ridge. I'll take you up on that offer.

That's what I call secure, MisterMike! Thanks for the pics! Where do you ride that requires that much prep (not that that's a bad thing)?
