ehh... while that is debatable, it is more to prevent any potential leaks from getting onto the paint and ruining it

It's so people can't see how dirty your brake fluid is and give you about it.

I need one... I put superblue in my bike and people keep asking me when the last time I changed the brake fluid was. It's getting old.

Of course. Zuki Blue, Yami Deep Red, and rainblow for the gheys. And for my friends at MH, I'll offer you a deal - 2 for $50.00. That way your left kickstand will match your right kickstand. Some of you might prefer the ribbed for your kickstand . ... .. well, your gf might prefer it.

BEAT THAT !!!!

That's up, but a good thing it was only a brake reservoir sock.


They will take anything on or around your bike/vehicles, not a good idea to leave a lid on your bike either.


At work - I park in a nice parking garage with a gate, key card access, and we also have a team of security guards. We have a cop that shuts down traffic for us when anybody leaves for lunch of after 5pm and I still wouldn't feel comfortable if I left any of these articles attached to my bike.
