Tank protectors
« on: June 21, 2019, 02:06:40 PM »
Noticed with the flat black my tank sees alot of smudges and got about 1/2" of Pro Honda wax on it so far.
Looking at protectors for the front + sides, what's the collective using?
Pics would be great  :028:

A bunch on Ali X - Harder style, some look rubbery with nubs??  35-60 day shipping time though.

Like these but $75, center pad not included!

for the most  part I buy my tank pads form Immortal graphixs and have had great luck with Tech Spec ( cut my own shape ) for the knees

Techspec are excellent quality and provide exceptional grip for your knees... theyre so good my only complaint is that they almost provide too much grip!

Have a look at the Eazi grip PRO protectors. Centre tank pad is about 16 and around 30 for the pair of tank side pads.

I have the Tankslapper on my whole tank! Transparent film you put over the paint to keep it protected!

Techspec is the only way to go. Once you have had them theres no going back.

I put on a full set of TechSpecs a few weeks ago, so I can't comment on their long term durability. But I love 'em! They fit great, look great and really make a difference in my riding. Highly recommended.

Got my set here... https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/techspec-snake-skin-tank-pads-kawasaki-z900-2017-2018

I read on the concours board a couple people have had trouble with getting some black residue rubbing off from them onto coats + pants.
