track supplies

Quick question....For you guys that do a lot of track days, what type of supplies would be good to bring? tools, shade tent, extra helmet, etc...What type of things do you find yourself needing? I am doing my first track day on Saturday and was just wondering what kind of stuff is good to have...

I usually bring zip ties, blue painter tape, air guage, e-z up, tools, air compressor (acc 12 volt works out of my truck) folding chairs, stands, extra batteries for my go pro, SD cards, and food and drinks

As I participate in more track days I find my list growing and growing

That's a good start! I appreciate the experience. I'm working on my tool box now and I'll throw a package of tie wraps in. I guess you never know when you would have to tie wrap something!! Would it be good to bring a generator and fans or would that kind of just get in the way?

I think a gen would get in the way, besides, I don't think many people will appreciate the noise, lol.

One more thing to bring are spares...like levers and rear sets if money allows it.

Bring a big fan on which you can put your helmet in between sessions. And an ice chest with lot's of fluids. Not just water.

a gen is a good think to have, because alot of tracks dont have power outlits and you will want a fan or 2. then if you go further in to trackdays you will need it for tire warmers. bring bananas it will help from cramping up plus start drinking plenty of water acouple days ahead of time helps alot to. bring tools if you have them and bike stands just incase you have to take your wheels off or something, if you dont have any the tire guy will help you also.

The Number One Thing Not To Forget Is YourKEY!!!!!


p.s. the gen noise will not get on other peoples nerves, those thing are all over the track and 90% of them are loud lol.....so I suggest bringing one

And bananas, you'll need the potassium, and good snacks, like nuts and beef jerky.

allright! I had my suspension tuned by Patrick and cooling flushed, got my generator, 3 fans, KEYS, tool box with the afore mentioned, gas cans, cooler, shade tent, and other junk....Now, I taped up my blinkers, head light, tail lights etc. and pulled the fuses for the head lights and tail lights...Do I need to tape my windscreen? Just not too sure about that!

No windscreen, just lights. Dont forget some chairs too. Ur gonna get tired. Also. If you start getting overheated and feel really worn out, then just call it a day. No use in crashing out over fatigue, or skip a session here and there so you can last all day

Its nice to change into a fresh pair of dry socks every other session.

OJ is a good pick-me-up.

Earplugs make your brain less tired.

Towels to dry your sweaty-ness.

Girl to massage your feet and legs.

Towels to soak in icy water and put on your head.

Chair.

Goldfish are pretty tasty.

ShotBlocks or other workout/energy foods (like what cyclists eat).
