No fun. So much no fun that some riders have been known to tape-up the levers on winter hacks, using gaffer tape for extra grip and some insulation.
There is a much more effective, quick and cheap solution, however; lever sleeves… which are available from Wemoto. The sleeves slip straight over the levers and the foam material has enough give and texture to allow optimum grip and feel, even in heavy rain.
Unlike wrapping levers with tape, the foam sleeves are quickly removable, so there is no problem with worn-out tape or sticky residue on the levers. Lever sleeves offer padding as well as grip, providing insulation from vibration.
They fit the majority of motorcycle control levers and cost £1.99 per pair including VAT from www.wemoto.comEnjoy more Classic Bike Guide reading in the monthly magazine. Click here to subscribe.
