That would take for ever using a drill to twist. Safety wire pliers are where its at, just clamp and then pull.

Concur with John.

There are a lot things in the rule book that are based on common sense and good judgment. Some of these things are hold-overs from days gone by when bike fit, finish and QC were not quite as good as they are now, and a lot of bikes were largely built by hand. If you want to wire your clamps or put a dab of RTV on them to help prevent them from coming loose, that's cool. I won't flunk you in tech if you don't, though. You will flunk without wire on your radiator cap, and I always like to see the drain bolt wired or dabbed with RTV.

Also something I missed when I started racing, is the timing port. There is usually a capped hole on the flywheel end of the crank to set timing. I dabbed some RTV on that.

ok,i assume you mean the radiator drain bolt?
ok, what about these catch cans i keep hearing about?
is it just for the radiator over flow,or all the lines hanging off the bottom of the bike?
so far i got,
pinch bolts
caliper bolts
axle bolt
banjo bolts
oil drain bolt
oil filter clamped and tied
radiator cap tied,
what else am i missing here?

You can probably remove the rubber boot that goes over the threadless shaft and drill a hole in the middle of the bolt. That way it is wired in between the front and back part of the caliper

If you need any advice feel free to PM me. The only coolant piece that must be wired is the rad cap. Be sure you flush ALL of the anti freeze out of the rad and MOTOR. If I find anti freeze in a race bike, it will not be allowed on the track until it is flushed completely out.
