R&G Rac­ing plas­tic lever guards £39.99 each

Motorcycle News (UK) - - MCN Garage -

Since be­com­ing com­pul­sory in rac­ing, lever guards have grown in pop­u­lar­ity with track­day­ers and even road rid­ers get­ting in on the act. The idea is that they stop front brake levers be­ing squeezed on when there’s in­ad­ver­tent con­tact be­tween han­dle­bar and an out­side ob­ject like an­other bike or rider (on a track) or some­thing like a bus (on the road). Th­ese new of­fer­ings from crash pro­tec­tion peo­ple R&G are made from plas­tic and meet the reg­u­la­tions laid down by world rac­ing’s gov­ern­ing body, the FIM. They’re avail­able in black, blue, red, or­ange or green and are avail­able for both brake and clutch side. R&G have had pure car­bon-fi­bre guards avail­able for a while, but they in­volve a more sig­nif­i­cant out­lay of £150 per guard. www.rg-rac­ing.com
