TechSpec Snake Skin Tank Pads Kawasaki Ninja 1000 / Z1000

The Snake Skin Tank Pads are the flagship product of the TechSpec line. Each Snake Skin Tank Pad features the most aggressive pattern available, which provides unparalleled grip and increased control. You'll feel the difference right away, as the pads allow you to decrease the pressure on your wrists, elbows and shoulders, improving the relationship between you and your machine! Perfect for any rider hitting the track!

Body position and weight control are essential techniques for all riding styles, not just aggressive riding. By griping the tank with your legs, you will improve overall control of your body motion, position and posture.

Features:

  • Bike-specific tailored shape
  • Special adhesive back allows the tank pads to be removed and repositioned if necessary
  • Eliminates sliding
  • Improves riding style
  • Will not damage leather or textile pants
  • Includes 2 left and 2 right side pads

Note: Please use care when removing the paper backing from the adhesive so as not to pull the adhesive away from the Tank Pad. Installed image for shape and size reference only.

Perfect
These tank grips are simply the best.

Install was super easy. I cleaned up the areas on my tank with 91% alcohol. Then I heated the wax paper side of the grips with a hair drier(Grips were already warmed by direct sun light) I had no issues with adhesive sticking to paper. Finally I placed the grips where I thought I wanted them. Oops little off slowly removed and reseated and it went down like the first time. Very good quality adhesive. I even used the smaller pads too, stuck no problem. Worth the price if your not confident your going to get the right placement the first time.
Adds confidence in the corners, hard acceleration/deceleration.

Easy to install.. Works great!
Looks great and easy to install on my Ninja 1000. Makes a huge difference in control-ability when cornering hard also reduces sliding forward. I highly recommend this product.

Excellent, despite a hiccup
2015 Ninja 1000 checking in here... I ordered these pads, were on backorder because the manufacturer was backed up with orders but got them recently.

For the 2015 Ninja 1000 you get four pads, two larger and two small. The two large pads are excellent, fit well on the leg area of the tank and easy to apply. I heated things up with a hair dryer and kept it on the pads while I applied them.

The trouble was with the small pads, on the Ninja where these would go typically are on the matte finished plastic, typically adhesive doesn't stick too well. I decided not to apply them there as rough plastic tends not to wear and it's so close to the other that I doubt they'd add much. One of my small pads had the adhesive right from the paperbacking come off, rendering it mostly useless. I didn't go to the vendor just because I wasn't too concerned. If you've got a Z1000 take the small pads and use them elsewhere. Put them on your car dashboard to hold your phone or something.

Overall excellent product despite the adhesive pulling a little. I was extremely careful too, and even heated up things a little bit to make sure the wax paper pulled evenly away.

That wouldn't stop me from buying again but just keep it in mind when applying them.

Very good grip
This pads are ideal for track day enthusiasts. They are a bit thick but the tank grip you gain is second to none.

Best tank pads ever!
Although a little pricey, these pads from TechSpec are worth the price. I put them on a new Ninja 1000 and they give my knees somewhere to grip during serious curve-carving activities. As part of my riding gear, I wear Kevlar ultra-mesh over pants (from Motoport), which are somewhat abrasive to tank finishes. These tank pads show no signs of duress dealing with the kevlar fabric.

Awesome tank pad.
I put these on a Ninja 1000. Fits great, lines up great. For the Ninja 1000, it comes with 4 pieces (2 go on the tank, 2 go one the trim under the tank). It does not cover the center of the tank directly in front of the rider. I had these on my previous bike as well.

They stay on well and are super grippy. I've had no issues with them messing up my jeans or the rubber wearing down. This will be one of the first things whenever I get another bike.
