Most Motorcycles (M/C) will pass tech inspection if they are in the OEM condition (I.E.; - not modified). EXCEPT 3-wheel motorcycles and motorcycles with automobile or marine engines (NOT permitted). Also NO Scooters or Mopeds Allowed. However many large displacement M/C's are capable of achieving elapsed times and speeds that require extra items not found as standard equipment.
If your M/C runs 10.99 seconds or SLOWER in the 1/4 mile (6.99 in 1/8th mile) or slower than 120 MPH in the 1/4 mile we will check for the following items:
∙ Valid state issued drivers license or NHRA competition license

If your M/C is capable of ET’s quicker than 10.99 to 10.00 in the 1/4 mile (6.99 in 1/8th) besides the items listed above, you must install a lanyard with a positive cutoff switch to cut off the ignition system should you become separated from the M/C. Switch must be on low-voltage side of the ignition circuit. Many stock machines are equipped with a handlebar-mounted thumb switch that can have a lanyard easily attached for the above purpose. OEM cutoff permitted in plac of lanyard.
If your M/C is capable of exceeding 120 MPH in the 1/4 mile, besides the items listed above, you must wear full leathers or two piece leathers with metal zipper that zip together at the waist or a SFI Spec. 40.1/1 or 40.1/2 suit mandatory.
