It's not the camera, the bike has blue LED pods . Seriously, that's pretty bad safety wire job for the oil filler cap.

safty wire is attached to a pin and can get pulled right out is the cap is being turned CCW.plus it is wired to the subframe which will vibrate at a different frequency than the engine it can pull that pin right out.

I had fun. I needed brakes. I had basically none. But, as the racing world works, I have three sets of pads waiting to be picked-up as of today. Go figure.

This man is thinking outside the box. Just like half a cup of water is it half full or half empty?

Bein as how I am a professional safety wirer (is that a word?) I can tell you that long section of twisted wire will vibrate enough to cause the part wrapped around the subframe to eat in to the aluminum.
It will happen faster than you think.

I have found that beating on the filler cap with a hammer will keep it in there.
When you need to add more oil just bust a hole in the valve cover, it don't need no wire, safety or otherwise.

The problem in that picture is that the bike doesn't have a muffler, which prevents it from being legal to run in the Superstock classes
