Track Day Numbers - What & Where

Getting ready for my first track day... I already have mirror blanks on the way, will disconnect & tape the lights.

Where does one go to get number decals? Is there anything for our specific bikes?

My n00b track skills should provide ample entertainment; I don't need janky crooked, wrinkled, bubbling vinyl numbers half way falling off my bike to add to the list.

You can just stop by Home Depot and get some basic vinyl numbers... that's what I did. Down the road you get something more professional if you choose to.

Does the track org require everyone to have numbers? Unless they specifiy, you don't need them unless you're club racing.

It's easier to pull the fuse for the headlights and painters tape for the tails to avoid the warning light in the dash.

Because they will improve my lap times by 21.7%. A guy with a civic told me that secret. It's why he has the big ass H symbol in vinyl on his hood and a 4' spoiler.

Or they require it for this particular event.

Most of the orgs I ride with require numbers... easier to meatball someone when there's a number.
