TechSpec Snake Skin Tank Pads Yamaha R1

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, 2 right and 1 center tank pad
  • Please use care when removing the paper backing from the adhesive so as not to pull the adhesive away from the Tank Pad

This works absolutely how it's advertised Without the snake skin tank pad I'd slide all over the place when I decelerate. Over all good choice July 21, 2014
Simple but works well. I was just looking for a decent tank protector and decided to go with this kit. It looks good and helps you stick to your bike. Simple concept but does work pretty well. July 29, 2014
Awesome tank pad Bought this after my first track event. At my second event it was much easier for me to relax my body in the corners since now my legs had something grippy to hold on to. The pad also looks great and works well with any pants. Also, won't hurt you when wearing jeans like some of those knobby plastic tank grips I see all the time. No problems with install.

A simple, very very good product. So, I've used the TechSpec '11 ZX10R kit for since...well 2011...and it has performed fantastic. On the track & street bike it just give you a solid grip feel to your bike. Doesn't damage to jeans or leathers. Haven't had to replace them on either bikes nor has the adhesive come off at any point I've used them. The kit is preformed or precut to fit your model of bike and give you ride a nice race look. Like I said above just a very very good product. Notes: The Snake Skin is best described as a tire tread for your knees and thighs so the rubber tends to rubber off onto you leathers. So depending on the colors you'll see it, but it cleans off really easy with leather conditioner and a micro cloth. FYI Tips: Also, when apply the pads, really clean the surface with windex or whatever you feel is safe for your paint finish. And use blue painters tape to mark the corner and edge of where you want to put the pads b4 you just peel and stick...trust me it works so much better and you get it lined up perfect. Hope that makes sense. Peace MD July 9, 2014
these are great! These tank pads make it so much easier to grip the tank! Install was really easy - cleaned area with rubbing alcohol, used heat gun to get the surface temp up to 80ish degrees, then stuck them on. Start slowly - peel back a corner, stick it then as you pull back the adhesive, use the edge of your palm to stick it to the side of the tank. I didn't get any air bubbles. They have been on my bike for the past 6 weeks or so, and no peeling. The kit comes with the two pieces for the edge of the tank and a center tank protector piece. It was alittle too long for my SE model, but I cut it down and it looks very nice. July 3, 2014
strong grip I gotta say these pads have some amazing grip!! Easy to Install, although right of the bat the edges started peeling off( I'll be updating the condiotions).price range is a bit high but you get what you pay for. Overall worth the buy. July 2, 2014
Great grip, mediocre design for a tall rider - 2013 Triumph STR Bought this for my 2013 Triumph Street Triple R. The grip is very good but the pads don't cover enough of the area where my legs contact the tank. I am a taller rider (6'3" 155 lbs) so my knees and thighs probably extend longer and higher than most when in the riding position. I also use an Airhawk R seat cushion for longer trips, which raises my leg height even more. Installation of the pads was very easy. In order to try and cover more area where my legs weren't getting any grip with the side pads, especially when using the Airhawk seat cushion, I cut the center tank pad in half and installed each half on either side after some small cuts. There is still a small area where my knees contact the tank where I get no grip (see photo), so I'll probably have to order more material. June 25, 2014
Feels Pretty Good I have to say they are pretty grippy and does alleviate some of the stresses put on your body when riding a sport bike. You also don't slide around and slam into your you know what into the tank while braking. They look really good on the bike also. I think other than the looks and protection, what also impressed me is the ability to remove them and re-position them. While I only been using them for a week now, overall a great addition to your bike. Hopefully they last long. June 17, 2014
