Saftey Wiring?

Can someone explain to me how this works? What the purpose is? Can't seem to figure it out, thanks.

It's mainly for bikes that race on the tracks. It deals with safety wiring hardware (bolts and crap) on the bike.

keeps bolts from vibrating loose and spilling stuff like oil, coolant, and brake calipers all over the track

So by drilling out your bolts, and doing other things, how does this prevent them from vibrating loose?

Re: Saftey Wiring?

You drill a hole in the bolt and put a piece of wire through it, then attach the other end of the wire to a permanent spot on the bike. If you do it correctly, the wire running through the bolt only allows it to turn a 1/4 turn max before the wire tenses up and stops the bolt from backing out any further. It might not be a great solution if you need something torqued correctly, but it will definitely keep fluid retaining bolts like your radiator drain and oil drain plug from springing a huge leak.

Re: Saftey Wiring?

actually if you wire things really good you can keep them from moving at all

Re: Saftey Wiring?

What these guys said, to helps from things coming loose and getting fluid all over the track, and causing yourself and others to wreck.

With NESBA its only required for A group but it doesn't hurt to do it for others. You are required by them to do the oil filter, the oil drain bolt, and the fill cap. There is a tool to help you safety wire, it basically spins the wire for you and i seen it go for around 35 bucks.

Read the Nesba manual on the website and it helps explain safety wiring and gives you idea's on how to make it easy.


Again not required for you, being in B, but never frowned upon. Just don't get bent over it if you don't have to time to do it before next weekend.
