Will barkbusters prevent the levers breaking, havent fitted a new one yet but ordered one.

They should but the won't stop the bike rolling forward off the side stand on anything vaguely down hill.

Re: rolling off the sidestand....Leave it in 1st gear if your parking on a slope.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

Correct but many people dont release how easily Tigers roll off the stand in places almost no other bike does.

Yes, BarkBusters will protect against broken Levers, clutch & (front) brake.
It's good to develop the habit of leaving the 'bike in first: always.

Welcome aboard Pa1nter, you're gonna love your new to you triple.  I am a recent convert too, coming up for a year's happy ownership.  Love this little jigger more and more every time I get to throw my leg over it and turn the key.   :417:

Welcome fellow qld'r 
I learnt quickly to leave it in gear on a hill when I stop and barkbusters are a must. Some foldable levers don't go astray either I found.

Yes i stop it in gear now  every time now,even in the garage.
Barkbusters have created a buzz in my mirrors that im working on,ive tried a few things that have slowed it but annoying..
