1. Engine kill switch. Which will turn motor off in event of rider falling off. Fuel injected bikes can use tip over switch but will be checked at tech to make sure it works. (yep)



2. Tires will be ZR rated D.O.T. tires, front and rear.

3. Rear Axels must have cotter pin, clip, or safety wire to retain nut in place

4.Oil drain plugs will be checked at tech to make sure they are tight but at this time safety wire is not required..

5. Drive chains if using a clip type master link must either be safety wired or siliconed and must not have more than 1.5 of slack .on side stand.

6. Motorcycles without an air box for the crankcase breather return hose must have a catch tank for the breather.

7. Leather motorcycle gear. 1-piece or 2-piece suits must be worn. Must be zipped up at all times while on the racetrack or riding in the hot pit area.
8. KevlarT panels can only be used for expansion flexibility (arms and legs) and not to replace other large areas of leather.
9. Leather gloves with no holes or other openings except breathing pinholes.
10. Leather boots (or boots approved for motorcycle drag racing).

11. Helmets certified by the Snell Memorial Foundation and bearing 1995 (or later) approval stickers; or have the British Standards Institute approval sticker BSI 6658-A. All helmets must be full coverage (no open-faced helmets). Helmets, in the judgment of the Tech Inspector, must be in sound condition, including shell, liner and strap.
12. Shields or goggles of shatterproof nature and in sound condition.
13. Tear-offs are not allowed.
14. Texas High Speed Shoot Out prohibits hydration devices such as camel backs during race events.

15. Steering Damper for speeds of 140+
