    Gear and Throttle Levers - What to use as a dustguard?

    The title says it all , .... The dustguards, ... something that, in my opinion is really important... what have you guys used?

    I am thinking of the plastic foil that they use for linings garden ponds with or some rubber from a bicycles inner-tube. I will go and have a look at the plastic foil tomorrow and see if I can get a small piece to play with at home.

    Haven't tried it but how about some wide windshield wiper blades or that rubber trim that goes between the door and window of cars??

    There was a thread on here i'll see if i can find it but i remember the general consensus was to use cut up door draft excluder, the type you fix at the bottom. They stop all the light bleed too.
