Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Winter lever savers

Post by Jameshambleton on Tue 14 Nov 2017, 11:14 am

After somewhat dropping my bike twice and smashing the brake lever both times I've purchased some of these. Since on Sunday I lost the front a few times on black ice and the rear spun up a few times in the grit, thought I may as well get them purchased as they're cheaper than the cost of a lever.

They should be good for protecting the levers from any impacts and they're used in racing to stop the front brake getting hit and locking up the front.

Looks sweet! 

Having already dropped the bike a few times and changed a brake lever, that may be an interesting option for me (though I keep trying to persuade myself I will drop the bike less and less with experience ...).

Keep us posted Wink

ICE! what is this? never happens in sunny Mallorca, however rain affects the roads here just like ice! Never go out locally when it rains, Torvill & Dean never experienced Spanish roads in the rain! Go carefully in the UK! Busby
