Help! Brake lever guard
on: 26 Apr 21, 02:09:30
Help. Booked a track day for this Friday and just found out it is compulsory to have a brake lever guard.
Anyone know of where I can get one quickly that will fit? All the ones I can find on line are universal and fit inside the handlebar but I think on my 2015 Z1000SX that the bars are not hollow.
Any advise and help appreciated. Thanks

Not official brake lever guards, but you might be able to wing it and kill 2 birds with one stone for winter riding by just fitting the frame kit part only  :027:

Thanks - thats the kind of thing. I don't ride in winter anymore so wouldn't want the full guard. Its an option though.

The frame kit simply screws into the bar ends once you remove the weights  :028:

Barkbusters is the way I'd go. Much cheaper than actual brake lever guards and dual purpose!  :001:

There are a couple of track days I have lined up soon. Can anyone recommend any standard, decent brake lever guards that fits our bikes and wouldn't cost an arm and a leg? I don't want the Barkbusters like ones.

I ended up making my own.
Hopefully photos attached. Bent bar and a longer bolt and some black spray paint. Did the job.
