Brake Snake???

Brake Snakes are designed to prevent the pedal from bending/breaking if it gets hit by an object. Not for preventing something getting in the gap!

You'll change your mind if you catch the lever on something and bend it backwards, ending your race for the day. Really no money to waste if you make your own. Here's the cheapest & easiest way to do it, plus, it's removable, since it bolts onto the skidplate & lever.

Get a worn out throttle or clutch cable, some heat shrink tubing. and some ring terminals.

plus if your lever bolt backs out and gets lost ,at least you will have your lever still.brake levers cost alot

can get Tusk (rocky mt atv) brand for $5.. THey are not totally fail safe, but worth $5 if you ride brush/trails. I have ripped them off sometimes, but i use em. There is a hole already drilled in the stock honda brake petal. You need to drill a hole in the skidplate though.
