Longer tanks skins?

Recommended Posts

DewMan

I'm currently using TechSpec tank skins but they do not cover forward enough on the tank for my knees to grip them. And with the relative width of the tank, my thighs aren't gripping the skins either.

A perfect blend of surface tack and grip pattern, Snake Skin provides unparalleled tank traction to boost rider confidence when braking and cornering.

Anyone know of any tank skins that will cover most, if not all of the cut out on the sides of the tank where your knees grip? 

I know I can get sheets but I was hoping for an easier peel & stick solution without having to deal with cutting out for all the curves and indents.

I like the looks of the snake skin pads but they're just not long enough.

I have these Eazi Grip Pads and covers pretty well. I even have some (Clear) for sale in the buy sell trade area.

Thanks for the response but those aren't any longer than the ones I have unfortunately.

Longer than the tank skins at least. 😆 I mounted them as far forward as the pre-cut would allow as shown on the pictures that are on the Revzilla link

I also used full sheet of Tech Spec, 3-years with no issues. Warm up the curved areas with heat gun to help conform. Adding bevel around perimeter minimize  edge peel.  They are larger than needed but not worth messing with.
