while im sure an exact replica of them would be perfect any start gate you build even close to them would be just fine to practice with.

This is the only thing I could find in the AMA rulebook about starting gates.

9. Starts

a. A mechanical device is used to start a motocross

event—a rubber band, gate, or when facilities permit

and with the referee’s approval, electronically

controlled starting lights.

b. At the starting line, the course must allow 1-meter

(3.2-feet) of starting space for each machine.

As you can see it just says "gate", I would call a local track promoter and ask them what they use. Or just go to a local track and measure one.
