Saftey tip

A dirt bike mag down here recently posted a tip about taking the handlebars off and putting a chamfer on the mounts, as the edge of the triple clamp can sometimes be sharp enough to wear the bars and eventually crack them. They said it was a must if you do MX or jump a bit.

Anyway the last issue of the same mag had a letter from a guy who said that he wished he seen the tip before he landed a triple jump and cracked his handle bars. Apparetnly the bars were worn by a sharp edge on the triple clamp, and this caused them to break. The ended up with 57 stiches in his face from hitting his head on the triple clamp.
