So what do I gotta do to run a street bike, even though some may say it looks like a track bike?

They are still looking for chain guards. VELCRO will get you by on the kill switch. NO DRILLING REQUIRED

Pretty much nothing but rig up a BS kill switch with a lanyard and velcro

There's no workaround for the deadman's switch? I'm not drilling a hole in my Beemer's kill button, which is, by the way, a push button and not a toggle switch.
Tires dont matter

There are at least 4 of us on the list that can give pointers.I'm just hoping mine still runs after this meet. I have to try to run without spray. It's gonna suck but my newly built motor is not right. It's gonna be a I'm sure. It will be worth it if this goes as well as the last 2 did. I was hooked after the first trip. We need more drag racers.
