Safety lock wire

Lockwire is essential for securing parts on racing and track day conditions. It prevents parts from unintentionally falling off the bike due to vibration or other forces. On motorcycles, the most common safety lock wire is 0.8mm stainless steel but lighter-heavier gauges can be used as well depending on application (lighter gauge for grips, heavier gauge for bolts, springs etc).
