Tank grips

Recommended Posts

Are stompgrips the ones to buy? I’m just riding around town no track days. But I would like to feel planted to my bike.

Stompgrip is good for the track and leathers but could be uncomfortable in other pants. I reckon it could wear through jeans pretty quick.

I got the STOMPGRIP Volcano traction tank pad kit for 2014-2017 YAMAHA FZ07 / MT07, #55-10-0098 for my bike and really like them, I haven't seen any wear on my pants, they are grippy, but soft silicone like nubs.

I had tank grips on my first set of tank plastics for about 3 years. I swapped to a different color and did not re-apply the grips. I noticed no difference. If you want em, get em for looks. Tank on the FZ is too narrow and short for me to really take advantage of something like that.

I have the Techspec grips on my FZ07.  Grip-wise they don't do much,  As AlbatrossCafe mentioned, the tank shape doesn't work too well for grip anyway.  I had the same grips on my 06 ZX6R and they made a world of difference.

will these tank grips help?

3 choices- cleated for icy, rubber for asphalt and regular for off-road 😀

That gives a new meaning to "track day". ;)

^^I've got the same. Haven't really found the affect very noticeable either. I have the same on my Ninja 250 race bike, and they're a bit more helpful on that than the FZ. Must be a tank shape thing

Will FZ07 grips work on 2018 MT-07?

i wernt with the large volcano stomp-grips, maybe its just me but they actually do help a bit but that might also be due to my fat-ass thighs and the much thicker seat.

LOL! Being a former tanker myself, I see the humor here.

I have the tech spec, but they really only come into play when you are hanging off the bike pretty good.
