Decibel Level Policy

Many race tracks have a decibel level requirement that you must abide by. ACE does not check noise levels during tech. Stock exhaust systems are not usually a problem. However, IF you have modified your bike with a competition or other aftermarket exhaust components or systems, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to verify that the bike is within track noise requirements. ACE does NOT check sound levels, but many tracks are using portable sound meters to verify compliance. IF the TRACK flags you for excessive noise, your day will be forfeit with no credit due except EFP if applicable. Prepare your bike for the track. Track rules take precedence and if the track rules do not conflict, here are the guidelines:

- Kickstands: Kickstand removal is not required for the novice and intermediate group.Kickstand removal is STRONGLY encouraged for advanced group riders. -

Centerstands: It is highly recommended that centerstands be removed due to clearance issues for all groups but not required in novice or intermediate. Centerstands are required to be removed in the advanced group. -

Your bike in top mechanical condition (no leaking fluids)with new or near new tires at leat 80%,

- All glass, headlight(s), turn signals, and plastic lenses must be taped over or removed. - Both mirrors must be removed or taped over. -

Proper safety gear for the racetrack (i.e. gloves, helmet, boots, one or two-piece leathers) - Textile riding suit w/full zipper in beginner only. -

Check the chain for lubrication, tight spots and overall tension -

All motorcycles must have an operational handlebar mounted kill switch/button and self-closing throttle in good working condition. - All bodywork must be mounted securely -

No coolant change needed in Beginner, it is recommended in intermediate, and mandatory for EXPERT

We will have tech inspection each morning that we ride.
