Lever guards are among the few tasteful modifications sportbike. And naked bike enthusiasts can opt for to enhance the aesthetic of their motorcycle. And add a functional piece of protection in the event of a tip-over.
It isn’t surprising that the most common parts to break during parking lot tip-overs and low-speed crashes are clutch and brake levers.
Installing a pair of lever guards adds a safeguard and protects your levers should your bike end up on its side.
They could also come in handy for those who ride in heavily populated areas. Where it is likely that your bike will slide into other parked motorcycles.
Lever guards are a popular choice among most sportbike riders, but they’re not all created equal.
There is no standard for lever guards from one manufacturer to another or even from one model to another of the same brand.
