Building a motor cross starting gate entails several steps, including developing a design, assembling all the required materials and actually constructing the motor cross starting gate. It takes a period of three to six weeks to build a motor cross gate. Some of the qualities that a motor cross gate should have are accuracy and precision.
The first step when building a motocross starting gate is to look for a design. One should search for an appropriate design while taking into account the amount of money available and the expertise needed to build the gate. There two types of starting gates, including a manually controlled gate, which is controlled by a manual lever, and an electronic gate that contains sensors.
After settling on the design, one collects all the materials needed to build the gate. This includes a welding machine, metal and screws. In case one decides to develop an electronically controlled gate, one should develop a software and transmitter with sensors attached to the gate. Therefore, information is electronically relayed to the transmitter and opens the gate randomly. For a manual metal gate, gears to control the gate are installed. When the lever installed on the side of the gate is pulled, it should open automatically. Manual gates are cheaper to build but might lack precision and random opening ability.
