I plan to run a stock(except pipe) Kawasaki ZX14 in September to get licensing passes and was trying to determine what I will need to get legal-
New chain guard, tether kill switch, steering damper, anything else? Do I need to come up with some kind of safety wire for the front axle? What about fuel lines/petcock? The fuel tank has no petcock but the fuel pump shuts off with the ignition. Are the factory fuel lines considered fire resistant(2006 model)?
Thanks for any advice you can give. I'll be riding 600 miles to get there and would hate to not be able to run due to lack of preparation.

Have you looked at the ECTA rulebook yet?

Dan's right in suggesting you find out the information for yourself - as a way to get familiar with the rulebook under which you'll be racing.  I'll give you a bit of peace of mind, though - - darn near nobody who shows up to race at Maxton gets sent home for not having the safety bits all installed.  You'll find someone in the pits that has whatever you need and might even help you install it/them.

Tiger Racing has a specific chain guard that meets the requirements for LSR whether you're SWB or stretched.  Definitely take a look at the rule book, you get one with your membership payment.  Front axle nuts as well as the pinch bolts need safety wire.  The fuel system is fine.  You can also shoot me an email at richard.haskins1@gmail.com  I ride an 07 ZX14.

Thanks to all for your help-especially Slim, I really appreciate it.

I've read the rulebook several times, I ran another bike at maxton in april and spent hours reading and verifying everything. I just get a bit confused about the specifics sometimes, simple mind and all.
I was not planning to just wing it , I have spent plenty of time reading the rulebook, was just hoping for a little advice/insight .
I tried to run my zx11 bracket racing bike, was fully prepared for tech, but found the course a bit too choppy for the ridged rear on the drag bike and was not at all comfortable in the 150mph range. So I'd like to try again in September on the 14.

If so, I remember talking to you a bit in line.  Definitely a good looking ZX11.  My 14 is green and black.  Good luck with your 14.
