The FAA has "Safetying" procedure instructions;

Paragraph 7-122.

I have a bike with a single side swing arm.  The rear wheel is held on with five lug nuts.  The axle itself is has a large nut that is torqued to 184# and has a large retaining clip that further retains it.  Will anything else be required?

One of the best post I've seen. Thanks

Everyone that works on race vehicles should read (and save) that document.

For years I've kept a small reference book close at hand. It's the "Standard Aircraft Handbook" by Leavell and Bungay. It contains similar information to the above document plus a lot of information on materials and fabrication procedures. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who's doing any sort of racecar or racebike preparation. I believe it's still available and is commonly found in aircraft and pilot supply stores usually on or near airports.

If you go into one of the aircraft supply stores such as Aviall you'll generally find the staff rather helpful and the prices for hardware aren't nearly as astronomical as you might think. It can open up a whole new world.  :-o :-o :-D

It looks like the newest edition has been upgraded and has different authors but contains the same information, also updated. Again my age is showing!  :roll: :roll: :roll:

It appears it's readily available through Amazon and most booksellers.

Milton, thanks for all the bike advice.  I followed it to the "t" and Guy even approved my non-Tiger Racing chain guard.  We had a great time last weekend and hope to be back in September.

Pinch bolts are no longer required to be safety wired,  and if you have a hidden front axle it's also not going to require safety wire.

There are a couple of small changes but it goes along with being more inclusive.

Are you talking about SCTA? or ECTA?

Folks here run several venues, so that comment could be confusing if not related that all.

I'm not trying to be a smart Acura Rouse but Ohio is ECTA. At the same time your point is well taken and newbies should be careful to note where items like this are applicable.
