AMA Pro Road Racing Competitor Bulletin #2012-22

To: All AMA Pro Road Racing Competitors

Date: October 17, 2012
Effective Date: Immediately
Subject: Mandatory Brake Lever Guards

Starting with the first round of AMA Pro Road Racing competition in 2013,
front brake lever guards will
be mandatory for all classes
. No later than December 1, 2012, AMA Pro Racing will post an “Approved
Lever Guard” list in the Competitor Information section of the AMA Pro Racing website, located at

Lever Guards do not need to appear on the Eligible Equipment List; however they must appear on the
Approved Lever Guard list. This is to ensure that only lever guards of a suitable quality and construction
are being used on the race track.
During the 2011 Daytona 200, During the Final lap, A crash occurred due to brake lever
contact (it was a pretty controversial race too).  This was not the first time, but it was the
time that broke the camels back.  We spend so much money on our bikes, and yet we
never apply this simple lesson the Dirt guys have known for years.  Bellissimoto has
heard the call and we know offer a full range and style of Lever Guards for our
customers... Ride safe Guys!
