To sop up leaking brake fluid from incompletely tightened brake reservoirs. Typically a noob move on the street. Some, but not all tracks require it. That's pretty much the only reason for doing it.

sometime the front reservoir sweats due to hard braking or stoppies. It just need it because brake fluid is very hard on painted surfaces. It will remove paint within a minute or so. Be careful!:laughingr

I use one to protect my reservoir from sun damage. If seen some which have become brittle and crack and need to be replaced due to exposure...

The sunlight can break down brake fluid, so if you ride the street and have your bike sitting in the sun for long periods of time it is a good idea. ALso, if you crash and your reservoir gets damaged it will help soak up brake fluid, I have seen this happen first hand on my racebike. Plus it looks oh so cool..LOL

You could just as easily throw a quick splash of matching paint on it, and use real screw clamps! "Tada!" it looks good and won't leak!

You gotta make sure you have the Famous (F), or Tap Out logo, or SRH on your sweat band. Trendy and dousche are where it's at...BRO! :rofl:

Before I learned to ride, I saw a Suzuki sweat band. Thought it was pretty cool.

only cool people do this :lmao:
comments like this make me believe I am on gixxer.com.:headshake

But I have one on mine but bought it to cover up the cheap plastic look of the resivoir. Cause I'm a squid that cares about looks.:headshake

If it serves a purpose then fine, if not its alot better then looking at cheap plastic. If we all had a guideline on how our bikes should look then we would all look the same.:headshake



And check out my super squid rear one!

+100, plus the fluid will burn and break down if left in the sun like mine does here at work during summer time. 110 deg weather
