Lever guard Use

Usually, if you aren't racing I wouldn't bother thinking about it. Its main use is likely to protect levers from breaking. They will prevent the brake lever from being activated if you rub up with another rider mid turn. They're great if you do a lot of lane splitting.

Lever guard Protection

Like a user rightly quoted, ""I use one on the brake for track days (intermediate). Honestly, if it was just for the bubble you are supposed to leave, you wouldn't need one. But shit happens. For example, there was a crash in Sonoma last year due to two riders accidentally touching on B group. The faster bike tried to pass on the straight after the carousel and the other guy closed up on him, causing the other guy to hit him, hit the front brake and he flipped.

It's not really necessary unless you are in A group or racing, but shit happens, so why not? If you can afford it, it doesn't hurt having one.""

Well, I don't want to go to the expensive side as seriously, its like tiny bit of metal, doesn't even need to be high precision, why should the going rate for a lever guard be $150? Quality, Yes, but you might even find videos on YouTube to make your own. So lets keep the stuff quality + economical and start picking our guards.

"The picture does not depict the style of retainer that is on my Suzuki GSX-R750. Instead of the expanding retainer as in the picture, the Suzuki version has a star nut, which will not tighten sufficiently to keep the guard in place on impact, it has fallen out two times. I will replace it with a competitor's product."
