I was not entirely impressed with the wire clamps that make this little piece of wire into a brake saver. We haven't tested it with a hard crash on hard pack, but I think the wire clamps will slide right off the wire and allow the brake pedal to bend. The wire is thin and the aluminum wire clamp is thin. I've used other brake savers that incorporated much more burly wire clamps.

Have one of these on every bike I ve owned. I ride a lot of woods and trails
FIT PERFECT. LOOKS GOOD.
Havent had any pedal issues yet. just put on in case and is easy to install and doesnt effect brake function at all.
very easy install, so long you have a aftermarket skid plate, it will lace right through, and all you have to do is crimp the copper sleave. will hold break pedal in location best as possible, during trail runs and close bike to bike races
My friend installed this on his 07' limited editionYZ250 for trail riding and he nicked a tree with the brake pedal. Brake saver saved the brake from completly bending out! Great buy!
i've been using these since 1998. these really are brake savers like they say. very simple yet effective. i have still bent my brake levers in a crash but it was still usable. i put these on all my dirtbikes.
easy to use and great!!!! confused by the look of it? heres how it works: when you get it you slip the metal loop apart and slide the plastic wire guard off. you drill a hole in your foot brake and slide the wire through til the metal stop reaches the brake pedal, slide the plastic cover back on and loop the wire around your frame. then reinstall the metal clip/crimp. crimp it down tight onto the wire and then ride! if anything snags you pedal it will only bend as far as you allow it to(adjust wire when installing to help this) $5 now or $150 later for a new brake pedal!? you decide
yes it is cheap I didn't like the fact that doesn't comes with the oval type predrill washer that you install on the frame to tie off the cable instead you are supouse to run the cable around the engine mount not a wise design
I'll prefer paying few more dollars and get a complete system not a incomplete kind a tie it off were ever you can!!!
I trew it to te garbish simple as that
i think this thing cost me like $5, and its saved me from having to buy $100 worth of brake levers. if you ride like you stole it and crash a lot, this is definatly worth the $5.
This product installs super easy and does a good job of protecting your brake pedel.
