Safety wire question

Greetings,
Can someone take some pics (or point me to someone who already has) of what should be safety wired and how to do it? I've heard that I need to do banjo bolts, oil fill cap, etc. but would like to see how others have done theirs as this will be my first time to do this. I appreciate any help you can give.

front/rear caliper bolts, oil fill cap, rad cap, oil filter, oil plug bolt, front/rear axel bolts too.

depending on what you are riding in ie... trackday or racing... trackdays usually only require certain things but even if they don't require anything.... always wire your fill and drain holes like oil drain and fill, oil filter (put a hose clamp around the filter and wire the clamp to something) at least.

different series require different things... some want all bolts that retain fluid and some want all caliper bolts, pinch bolts, brake pad pins, banjos and axle nuts. most of which is a pain but I will be honest, I was in a hurry once and got distracted and forgot to tighten the caliper bolts and Im sure you can imagine the rest (i didn't crash).

another thing I would wire is your front brake lever to the master cylinder (usually a hole that goes through the mount). My friend went into a turn w/out a front brake lever!!!!! he crashed!

another good one that makes it very easy to pull axles is a couple holes drilled in the chain spacer with safety wire inside some tubing so you can grab the tube and pull the axle out on the other side, drill the axle and put a huge cotter pin through it so the nut can't come off.

hope that helps.

I was reading that banjo bolts have hollow heads and can't be drilled straight through but must be drilled at an angle. Does anyone know if this is true of all banjo bolts? I'm getting ready to drill.
