We have been informed by Motorsport Vision (MSV) of some important changes that will be in place with bike events run by them from the beginning of next year.
Effective from January 2021, any customer who books onto a bike track day at an MSV Circuit (see list below) - will be required to ensure that their bike is fitted with front brake lever guards. Any bike that is not fitted with these will not be permitted onto the track.
Lever guards are installed on the levers, and are designed primarily to ensure safety by preventing the accidental engagement of the front brake lever during close riding, whether this is by accidental contact with another bike or another rider. An example of how they look can be seen in this image below.
They are also used outside of race and track day settings in road travel, for example, to prevent wing mirror contact/damage.
Lever guards can be easily found and purchased online, but at TrackDays we’re pleased to tell you that we’re currently working on making purchase of these available through our website in the near future, so make sure you keep checking back for more information as we have it.
