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

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.

Good product, not what I expected though.
So I got these around Christmas time, so I've done enough riding with them to form a solid opinion. They look really good, and do provide extra grip while braking and such.

I think they are great if you're commuting or just looking for extra grip on your tank. But if you're looking for the max grip possible, go with Stompgrip Tank Pads. I was expecting something similar to those when I bought these. I thought "if they cost extra, maybe they're better." I wasn't right.

Like I said, they do give extra grip, just not as much as Stompgrips.

On the bright side, when I had stompgrip pads and would ride in jeans, I noticed wear on the jeans in the spot where the jeans were contacting the stompgrip pads (after a few weeks or months). That doesn't happen with these, they're much nicer on your jeans.

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

Excellent product for my short period of use
I got exactly what I was looking for with this product.
Confidence while cornering, due to the grip I felt stable and planted on my tank.
While stopping there was a mark reduction in me sliding forward onto the tank, even with the added weight of a pillion.
There was also the benefit of added grip whilst accelerating aggressively, this was unexpected from my research.

I did notice the slight thickness increase in the size of the tank but this was neither a + or - for me just a general observation.
The grips have also shown a small amount of wear on the edges as pictured.
Also i did notice some of the adhesive on the tank after application but a very small amount which was easily cleaned up.
Some pants, such as slacks or gym track pants, which i use with under armor, do grip and slide around due to the tank grips, and my knee guards which add extra bulk work ok, though not as comfortable, jeans and leathers grip well.

I would recommend these for both daily street and occasional track/spirited riding.

This stuff works.
This is a great anti-slip product. It truly adds a lot of stability in your ride allowing the light touch required when flip flopping through twisties. It all so allows you to use your knees more on longer rides, so there's less fatigue on your hands and wrists. It's a little pricey at its suggested retail price, but I got mine from Revzilla, when I purchased my exhaust, so I was able to use a gift card to pay for most of it. I would certainly buy it again.... in fact, I got it for my wife's bike, and she loves it.
