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.
