    So I signed up for the 26th st Roebling Road and the bike is pretty much all set up, but I don't know where or what to use to display my number required. I know it has to contrast the color of the bike, be on windscreen and tail section for the corner workers, but what should I use? It still has street fairings so something I can peel off after the day is over would be preferred.

    Ccyle Gear has some if you want to look official. They come right off. I've used electrical tape with great results also.

    For street fairings, depending on your bike color, blue painters tape works just fine. Simple numbers like 1 & 7 or combinations of the two are very easy to make from scratch. The manual states that the number should be on the front OR both sides of the tail section. If you only have a number on the front, that is fine.

    I remember my first track day. The guy pitted behind me did just three strips of masking tape. His number was 111.

    Yea right, all that BS was started by over zealous dads in the paddock. If that were true MotoGP would have only one team, one bike and Mark Marquez putting on a riding clinic.
    Is your mind really that narrow?
    Go out and have fun even if your racing.

    So, I’m sure there’s no one working on their bikes A LOT in the past few days.
    I just want to be sure Big Jim’s answer still works. I’m laying out the decals on my SV and if I put numbers on the tail, they would be tiny, or really distorted from all the curves. I’m going to have numbers on both sides of front fairing. Do I have to have numbers on the tail? 85DA55CD-DA46-44F3-AA6A-2DDDA431A55E.jpeg

    Another option may be on the sides of the belly pan. . Also on the top of the rear tail section. Most of the corner worker stations are elevated.....

    If the numbers are just for N2 as long as we can read them from 4 sides of the bike I don’t think it matters, you could even go under the tail if you want. If it’s for actual racing you’ll need to check with that org on rules, for instance the current gen R1’s doesn’t need a number plate on the tail because it’s too small.

    From the N2 manual:

    "You will be assigned a riding group and your bike number must be displayed on the front and/or tail section of your bike."

    AND

    "Bike numbers can be displayed either on the front or sides of the tail section, or on both; at least 6 inches high with no special background required (Intro excluded)"

    Thanks guys. Just front numbers it is. No racing for me, just track days. Maybe I will do a flag on a whip antenna on the back. :):)

    Just a # in the front is fine. No need to go crazy. :)
