Re: Safety Wire Question

Only way I can see someone doing that is if they replaced the factory key/ignition with a toggle on/off switch. Seems they safety wired this so they don't accidetally flip it while on the track. Not sure if different racing orgs would find that acceptable or not though.

Re: Safety Wire Question

you couldn't have it in place while racing, nor would you want it on while racing or even riding.. but it's a good idea, that i see done fairly often so you don't arrive with a dead battery when transporting the bike. Just leave enough wire length to clip it elsewhere when running.

Why, people can still turn it off with the key. I thought the whole point of it was so you wouldn't turn it off onaccident on the track

Go fast parts:
Pipercross race filter, Leo sbk slip on, 05 header mod, pcv, bauce racing ecu flash, agg smog block offs, quick turn throttle, 520 rk gxw chain -1-1 renthal sprockets, ebc hh pads
, Shorai battery.

Body:
Robby moto sbk rearsets, woodcraft clip ons & sliders, armor bodies sbk fairings, db screen, vortex v3 gas cap, keyless ignition mod, agg sbk res kit,

Or in my case when you and your buddies take turn buzzing by and flipping your kill switch as they scoot on by.

Assholes.

The purpose of a kill switch that is accessible with both hands on the bars it to shut down the motor if you need to. The most common reason would be the throttle is stuck open. Yes, the key will also turn it off. But taking one hand off the bars and attempting to turn the key while you are headed off the track at full speed is going to increase the likely hood of a crash.

That's probably my favorite thing to do to my friends in the hot pit. Roll by and hit it. Or even better is when you are sitting at the grid waiting for your session to begin; as soon as the starter says "ok, go" hit their kill switch and take off.

I have that on my track bike with keyless ignition, the clip is only in place during transport so the ignition isn't accidently turned on which would drain the battery.

But then yours would be the opposite of that picture, right? Look at the photo again, it's set up so that the ignition can't be turned OFF.

Yeah mine is opposite, didn't notice that in the pic. Not sure why you would want that
