That's it Martin. Where R clips are used, lock wire them. I use an R clip through the castle nut on the rear axle for example.
You need to fit a shark fin as well.

No it's mandatory for a race bike competing in any FIM or ACU event.

If this bike is just to be used on track days, you won't need one and you won't need to lock wire anything either.

ACU regulations do not apply to track days.
