Inexpensive insurance against a potential serious injury. In the case of a crash that places your leg near the rear sprocket, the shark guard will help deflect your foot out of harm’s way.
Other toe guards ask you to drill & tap into your stock swingarm. The average swingarm today is 4-6mm thick aluminum, which can leave you with mounting bolts that can easily strip out. Woodcraft supplies two rivet nut inserts, hex wrench and a friction wrench installation tool with every kit.
Please note: To properly install the toe guard the swingarm must have a flat area of at least 16x70mm. Please note that some cast swingarms have a draft angle on the bottom that may prevent the toe guard from being parallel to the wheel/sprocket.
