Do a Trackday

Step-by-Step Instructions on how to prepare for and participate in your first motorcycle trackday

Preparation and Track Etiquette

OOne of the most common questions we get asked relates to participating in a trackday. It seems there is a long-standing misconcepton that in order to access the track, your bike needs to be fully race-prepped; safety-wire, oil catch basin, etc. While this may have been true many years ago, anymore, virtually every bike can participate in a trackday with minimal preparations.

The Products We Use

While Water Wetter by Redline is the most well known non-glycol coolant, we prefer Motul's MoCool. It's a non-glycol based radiator additive for use in racing/track applications where a glycol based product cannot be used. Engines run cooler up to 30°F (15°C). Improves thermal exchange and engine cooling system efficiency. For use in straight water or anti-freeze/water systems. Plus, it's legal in AMA, WERA, CCS, WRMMA and probably every other race club in North America.
