Safety Wiring 2020 S1KRR

I did some basic safety wiring of the 2020 a few weeks ago to make it track ready. Thought I'd share what I did. If anyone has better ideas, let me know. I'm here to learn.

I just did the basics, Oil Drain bolt, Oil filler cap, Coolant filler cap. Everything else was optional for MidOhio and pretty standard for motorcycles. Attached are some pictures of how I wired it. The only one that scared me is drilling the oil drain.

that was some good drilling workout.

I just buy predrilled bolts and caps now. Too lazy to drill that stuff these days.

You didn't mention the oil filter. The easiest way to do that is with a hose clamp around the filter and then safety wire around the screw on the clamp to a place on the motor or a bracket. It may not be required but it is nice peace of mind.

I was ballsy enough to drill that one in place... I wouldn't recommend it, but it's possible.

I wrapped the oil filter in a layer of gorilla tape (for a little grip) and hose clamped it. Apparently I forgot to take pictures of this.

That filter with the predrilled nut is banned at most of our tracks, if you're referring to K&N. Hose clamp and safety wire passes tech every time.
