Bonamici Lever Guards - what does a Brake Lever Guard do?

Posted by

Handcrafted in Italy, Bonamici Brake Lever Guards are a must for motorcycle safety. Brake lever guards are vital for protection from the unknown, such as a fellow rider bumping your brake lever. Don’t think this just happens while on the track; it’s also a huge possibility during serious street riding, especially when lane-splitting is occurring among multiple riders.

In regards to the race track, you only have to look to MotoGP, where, like many other racing series both national and international, brake and clutch-lever guards are mandatory.

The International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) made these guards mandatory in MotoGP back in 2011, stating: "Motorcycles must be equipped with brake lever protection, intended to protect the handlebar brake lever(s) from being accidentally activated in case of collision with another machine.”

Brake lever guards obviously can keep your race bike from flipping front over (endo) if another rider hits your front brake lever. But they’re not only for the racetrack; protecting you bike’s brake levers on the street can prevent some serious crashes. They can save you some risk when dealing with reckless lane splitters.

Used in MotoGP and World Superbike, Bonamici brake lever guards are extremely strong, attractive, anodized for durability. They also only weigh 2.78 oz. A thread locking glue or tape is recommended for proper installation.
