Whip the mirrors off, check and lube chain, drop cold tyre pressures to about 32psi front and rear, then ride it like you stole it!
That's all the prep a Striple needs for the track. Never taped lights up. Bit of tape wont save them...and if the bike is crashing hard enough to damage the lights on a Striple, a couple of unbroken lenses will be the least of your worries!
Get out there and have fun, never worry about who or what is behind you and just concentrate on taking smooth, tidy racing lines.
