Track bike set up

I removed my clutch switch, but is there a way to make it where I can still start it in gear with the clutch pulled in?

For those of you who have relocated the rectifier where did you move it to and how did you mount it?

Did you guys keep the kick stand or remove it?

I'll update this as I have more questions. Thanks

Re: Track bike set up

Why would you remove the clutch switch? Do you mean your blinker controls on the clutch side clip on?

Ye I removed all the controls on the left side. Blinkers, lights switch etc and the clutch switch was tied into that wiring harness.

Re: Track bike set up

Just out of curiosity, why would you need to start it in gear? The only thing I can think of is stalling out while in gear, but not sure when that would ever happen.

My kickstand is still on, but only because I can't break the bolts loose even with a 1/2" impact wrench...wtf.

best spot for the rectifier is on the left side of the frame above the radiator, drill a hole and tap it to mount.

Just for convenience really. I always leave the bike in gear so it would be easier to clutch it and start it than to find neutral.
I'm torn on the kick stand. seems like it would be a pain to always have to get off, hold the bike, and put it on the stand.

searched and that popped up but Melk man advised that was A bad spot for air flow and I'd rather not drill into my frame.

I do that anyways and it is kind of a pain, but I've yet to drop it even after a particularly tiring session. If you have someone with you or even in a nearby pit, they usually offer to hold your bike while you get the rear stand up anyways. At least that's been my experience.

Now that I've mentioned I've not dropped it yet, I'll probably drop it next time I go to put it up on stands.

but leave it where it is up in front of the radiator. i have seen frames broke when that thing gets pushed in when they relocated it upward on the frame. But more importantly, it doesn't get enough AIR up there. It's where it is for a reason, cause it gets wicket hot.. excess voltage gets turned into heat. Excess voltage generated from the higher than typical rpm's the bike sees on a track vs. putting around on the road. Heat has to go somewhere. the fins on the rectifier don't do the job they were designed to do when you move it out of the air flow (where it is now).
i lost 3 rectifiers. (2 on one bike, one on the other.. ). The first burned the plug on the DYNO the day i was buying it at Daytona. then 6 months later it burned another one (this was back in 2009). I moved it to the stock position, NO ISSUES SINCE. 2nd bike, burned up in 2010 at Carolina Motorsport park. Moved it.. NO ISSUES.
yea, pro teams found it cool to move. They also only race the bikes for 1 season. Or, if you live in a cold climate it may not be as big an issue. But EVERYONE that i know that moved it away from the stock position has burned it up.
Leave it.
