As a general rule do different tracks, and or organizations, require a specific or minimum gauge wire to be used -OR- if it is safety wired correctly it doesn't matter? Getting ready to run up to at least VIR this year with NESBA ad am starting to get the bike ready.

I doubt that different tracks and race organizers have a rule on what gauge of wire you use.

Best bet is just to buy the wire from a MC dealer to be sure

I have just signed up for my first track day with nesba and after reading the rules, only the advanced need to have plugs safety wired. It is recommended for others so i think i will do my plug at my next oil change.

Some tips on this subject would be helpful, Also can pre-drilled bolts and plugs be purchased?

yes you can buy predrilled bolts. We sell the predrilled oil drain bolts. As for the oil fill bolt that's easier to just drill yourself. You can purchase them all at some places, but you'll save a lot of money just doing it yourself. It's really not that hard at all. Smash the bolt in a hard vice and drill slowly/lube it if it's a damn hard bolt. titanium bolts are the worst to drill through, but oem bolts aren't that bad at all...

I'm sure someone here can whip up a how-to or lots of suggestions will flood in...

first track day...no need. Just change your antifreeze out for distilled water and water wetter, tape up your lights and pull the fuse, remove mirrors. Also make sure everything is topped off and good to go. A quick torque check on important bolts and your oil filter wont hurt either. Make sure you have plenty of pad left on the brakes and plenty of life in your tire you'll be all set.

Morning of - check your tire pressures. Check with people around you or the tire vendor for tire specific specs. Listen to the rider instructions and go have fun
