buy lots of drill bits your gonna break them.
take your time drilling it takes a while if you rush you will break bits

fork bolts
brake caliper bolts front and rear
axle bolts front and rear
radiator fill cap
oil drain plug
oil fill plug

make sure you drill mulitple holes on each bolt this makes wiring it much easier at the track or race just a FYI.

^correct me if I'm wrong but all of that is needed ONLY if you are going racing.
If you're just gonna do trackdays, I don't think you are required to safety wire anything.

Nevermind, I just looked at your list of bikes and I see you already know what I said.

Tape up your lights and turn signals and also unplug the front and rear lights if you can. Make sure your throttle is not sticking, brake lever has a good solid feel, make sure your oil filter, oil bolt, and filler cap are tightened. Make sure your rear sets are tightened and chain is not too tight. Tires are in decent shape and clutch lever has good feel! See you at the track!

Just do it. For your safety and ours. The last thing you want is to pay to be somewhere for a fun day and the oil plug or the oil filter come loose and you and your friends and up crashing... It happened in COTA...

I crashed because someone lost their coolant cap :(

Safety wiring your oil drain and filler as well as your coolant drain and radiator cap is definitely a great start, for your safety as well as everyone else's
