What type of motorcycle can I ride at the track?

Pretty much anything! Depending on the track, your motorcycle has to be 125cc or 250cc and above. It must be mechanically in working order, and depending on the motorcycle you might have to ride in the Cruzin group. Please remember certain tracks, such as Laguna Seca Raceway and Sonoma Raceway, have sound restrictions, so you maybe be required to put a stock can or a baffle on your motorcycle.

Please contact info@funtrackdayz.com with any questions regarding your motorcycle!

What do I need to do to prepare my motorcycle for the track?

In order to remove distractions for yourself and other riders, you must remove or tape off and fold in your mirrors, unplug or tape off your lights, indicators, brake lights and your wheel weights. We recommend safety wiring GoPros mounted to the motorcycle or helmet. There is a bike prep station at the track in case you need help with any of the above. We also have several informational videos on how to prep your bike here: http://funtrackdayz.com/informational-videos/

What mechanical requirements are there for my motorcycle to pass tech inspection?

Check your brake pads, make sure they are not worn out. Your tires must be well above the wear bars, make sure to check your tire pressure. If you are not sure what tire pressure you should run, check in with Catalyst Reaction. Ensure your brake lines, forks, seals and any other parts of the bike are not leaking any fluids. Make sure your throttle is self closing. Check your oil, tighten your filter, drain plug, bars/rear sets and make sure all your bodywork is securely fastened. Additionally, check your chain adjustment and coolant levels.

If any of these don’t check out during tech inspection, you will not be allowed out on the track.

What riding gear is required?

You need a DOT helmet, one or two piece suit that zips together, gloves and boots. You can wear a textile one piece or two piece suit that zips together with protective armor in the Cruzin group, but we highly recommend wearing leathers.

What additional gear is recommended?

For additional protection wear a back protector or an air vest. Some of the bikes out at the track are really loud, we recommend wearing ear plugs.

Do you offer rental gear?

No, Fun Track Dayz does not offer gear rentals. If you rent a motorcycle from Feel Like A Pro, gear will be included.

Do you offer rental motorcycles?

It’s my first track day but I’m super fast on the street, do I still have to sign up for the Cruzin group?

What happens if someone crashes?

In the event of a crash, the rider is required to get away from the motorcycle. If the rider is injured, the rider is to stay down. 

A Fun Track Dayz staff member will be with the crashed rider almost instantly. If the rider is OK, we get the rider off the track on a two up bike and move the bike out of the impact zone. If the crash was very minor and there is no damage to the bike, an instructor may try riding the bike back to the pits. Otherwise, Fun Track Dayz staff picks up all crashed motorcycles during lunch and at the end of the day. If the rider needs medical attention, there is an ambulance on site and and a helicopter on call.

If the motorcycle is recovered during lunch and is able to pass a follow up tech inspection, the rider will be allowed back on track after lunch.
