toe guard (also called shark guards) - September 16, 2010, 02:51 PM

When I was reading "Riding Man" by Mark Gardiner about his attempt to race the Isle of Man, there was a section devoted to shark guards, a metal guard placed on the swingarm in front of the rear sprocket to prevent one's foot, toes, fingers, etc. from getting sucked into the rear sprocket during a crash.

Anyone run these on their bikes? Since I'm thinking about tracking the bike more often, I was thinking about getting one.

This is what I'm talking about:

Graves Motorsports Chain Shark Guard - Tobefast

Puig Toe Guard for R6 06-08 - Fender Eliminator & Bodywork - Solo Moto Parts

"Bolt one of these on and give your bike that race bike look!"

really that was in the description of the the product info.....

yeah I get paranoid of the laces....

What do you value more? Life or Image?

"I don't ride, I usually just sit around wearing a tshirt and my icon back protector and talk shit about anyone who does not have a liter bike. That's how you can pick me out of a crowd. I also wear a red tophat."

At AMA races in NJ they required them on all the bikes. Had a couple of friends that just bent a heel gaurd, then drilled them, tapped holes on the swingarm and bolted em right up. Worked and looked great.

Buying a sportbike to go the speed limit (which you do not do in your car) is like buying a condom to look at it.

Do you buy a condom to look at it? No you buy it to fuck.
Thank you Rossi
