CCS Bike requirement... tail section

Does the tail section have to be a one-piece unit?

I'm converting the bike to mostly track, so I'd like to keep the street tail section (with cowl, no seat) and put numbers on it. Would this pass tech?

Also, does the side-stand have to be removed?

I've heard some of CCS's rules are not written in stone, I'm wondering where they are lenient.

Thanks!

some race tail are two pieces. I guess that would be okay but might have a strange look on most people seeing a semi street/race bike in races.

I don't know about CCS, but CMRA would be OK with it as long as the number plate met the requirement.

My guess is that they'd be fine with it- I think they're more interested in getting racers out there rather than being nit-picky about the type of tail section you have....

Regarding the kick stand, it's just not a great idea to have it on there anyway- taking it off is a good idea and it's easy to put back on.

Is there a quick-disconnect for the kick-stand kill switch wire? Or can I just cut the wire and be good?

Thanks Tom!

Un-plug the the kickstand switch and put a jumper in the plug.

You can also cut the wires and tie them together.

I've seen some people just tape the plunger switch closed (like the kick stand is up), but you risk it opening and killing the bike while you're in full lean!

Two piece tail is good to go as Tom stated, just need to meet number plate requirements. As for the kick stand it's too easy to take off, but you can wire it up and pass tech.

kick stand off....

and about lenient (sp?)......they are far from that. only thing i would say is "easier" is the safety wire rule.....but why they don't require brake calipers, axles, pinch bolts, radiator cap, etc.....is beyond me. those are as important as the oil drain bolt, filler cap, and clamp on filter.

Radiator cap is needed there Tony, but as for the rest of it I'm on the safety side and wire EVERYTHING. Plus you'll have it done if you wish to run CMRA.
