Please note***Will not fit 2018 Africa Twin and Adventure Sport models as the mounting point has been changed for 2018***
A true adventure machine is born as Honda introduces the new CRF1000L Africa Twin. Most big ADV bikes are built primarily for the pavement, but the Africa Twin trends towards the off-road end of the ADV bike spectrum. The small rear brake reservoir that resides on the side of the Africa Twin is plastic, and if damaged will spill the “lifeblood” of your rear braking system. AltRider’s Rear Brake Reservoir Guard was developed to protect this vital piece from debris and impact so you can focus your energy on the road or trail ahead.
The AltRider Rear Brake Reservoir Guard is constructed of laser-cut 5052 H32 aluminum, which is then grained to remove burrs, formed, and anodized for durability. What sets the AltRider solution apart is its unique design that folds back over itself. The result is a more robust protection piece with two mounting flanges instead of one as seen with other designs on the market. Viewing windows allow the rider to monitor the fluid levels, and the design also provides cap security to prevent tampering.
The Rear Brake Reservoir Guard from AltRider is available in black, red or silver, and mounts easily to factory hard points using the included stainless steel hardware.
AltRider Rear Brake Reservoir Guard for Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin is available in the following colour options:
- Black (out of stock)

More protection.By: Adam Kelly on 21 January 2018I purchased a red version of this... Probably should have purchased a black or grey to be honest. Considering how open the reservoir is I'm happy with the buy, but it is expensive for how little this plate is. It only takes one hit and your rear brakes are gone and this reservoir is open to the elements. Easy to install, but expensive.
