Drill a hole somewhere on your skid plate, nut and bolt from hardware store/Locktite, trim off excess. On the brake side, I'll drill a hole through the lever. Hey, if you know someone who plays, it's free, they're going to trash them anyway, except for the hardware. Leave a little slack, you won't even need a tuning fork. Hey, the blue bike guys have tuning forks on the tank.

Well as a guitar player - no matter what gauge guitar string, they aren't going to be stong enough - same with the bailing wire - my brake snakes appear to be braided steel(?) wire
