safety wire...

did some drilling today. got everything safety wired. bought some more drill bits. the titanium bits say they last 6x longer than regular bits lasted about 30 seconds before they were useless.

anyway, here's some pics:

front axle pinch bolts:

oil fill & dipstick. i used small clips so i don't have to re-wire every time i check the oil:

used a hose clamp on the oil filter. you can't see in the pic, but i used a clip on the oil drain bolt so i can re-use the wire, too:

not sure if anyone wires the rear axle or not because it doesn't have a cotter pin like my kawi did.

anyone think i missed anything?

edit: sorry about the bad pics. i was using my phone...

Re: safety wire...

when you wanna go to the track, in the non noobie class, most places require safety wire so that something stupid doesnt happen and you wreck at high speed

I picked up a safety wire kit recently so I can wire my grips so they stay put. Had to wire my old cracked reservoir too. You can get pre-drilled bolt kits to make the job easier from probolt usa. Mad $$ tho

Re: safety wire...

Thanks Chief, quick google search and I found that.

Too keep bolts and stuff from backing out, that was an easy answer. Not sure how I was suppose to get that from 'track'

It's a good thing to have also (wire pliers and wire). There's so many other random uses for it that come up too!

Re: safety wire...

Surely the caliper bolts are going to be a pita to rewire every time you change wheels?
