Stompgrip Tank Pad Kawasaki ZX6R / ZX636 2009-2014
THIS SHOULD BE YOUR FIRST MOD HANDS DOWN!!
By FAR, this should be your first mod that you put onto your sportsbike. It's a night and day difference between having it and not having it. Do you love your precious "jewels"? Then this is for you!! These pads give you excellent grip, and I swear it's like riding a different bike after you have installed them.
I was up in the air if I should buy them or not. They seemed a bit pricey, and I read a lot of reviews saying it's difficult to install. The price isn't pricey when it comes to your safety and riding ability. It easily increases your riding ability by giving you a better feel for the bike. It actually makes you feel like you're "one with the bike". I'm just sorry I didn't buy it much sooner. For those of you that REALLY know how to ride, this will help give you more grip so you can really hang. It instill so much more confidence in you while riding, that you will slap yourself for waiting so long before buying it. I know this to be true, I did it! LOL...
OK, as far as the installation goes... Yes it is time consuming if you want to do it right, and not have any air bubbles. You really need to line it up correctly, mark your spots with some masking tape, and then begin slowly. Start on one end, and pushing hard with your thumb on every knob. By the time you're done, your thumb will be a little sore but it will all be worth it. It will come out right, it looks cool, and will really enhance your riding experience.
I actually consider this to be a safety feature for your bike. By increasing grip, you're becoming a better rider, which makes it much safer for you. Trust me on this, if you like to really ride, and you accelerate fast and brake hard, like to put a little lean into your turns, you can't go wrong with this. Your "jewels" will thank you!

Very good, except for just one thing...
The pads are made from a thick, fairly stiff rubber that grips extremely well. Be sure to read the directions (the adhesive takes a few days to fully cure).
Don't get the clear version unless you are prepared to spend a long time with a hair dryer trying to get the bubbles out. Even then, I don't think it's possible. Save yourself the trouble and get a solid color.

Must have item!
Easy to install, looks good and as far as I'm concerned...absolutely necessary. The extra grip provided for both street and track riding is amazing. Helps connect the rider to the bike for a better feel and provides more confidence in all aspects of riding. Get it now!
