Snake Skin pattern works great with leathers or jeans
I highly recommend the snake skin pattern. I ride street and track, this pattern works well with leathers or jeans. You get great traction on either, and it won't ruin your expensive jeans.

As an added bonus the snake skin pattern is also highly wear resistant.

The snake skin pattern is fairly dense material, it's very different than the C3 material which is much softer and substantially more subject to wear. It's also a great deal thicker than the C3, which I like. I've had both, and the snake skin is the one to have. Honestly, I don't see any drawbacks to the snake skin pattern.

I wanted more coverage on the center of the tank than what is offered by the tank pad which comes with the 2015 R1 kit. For this reason, I purchased a TechSpec Tank Pro 6 "Spine" center tank pad and used it instead of the smaller one which comes with the 2015 R1 kit. You can see the "Spine" in the photo which I have enclosed.

Great look
I got the tank pro 6, it looks great. Easy to install but since it has some sharper sides, make sure you heat it up a little to get it to stick really well, otherwise, the corners may come off a bit.

If you are taking a pizza home on your bike, it holds it in place well, don't even have to hold the pizza box really lol

TechSpec Snake Skin tank pad
There are many tank pads our there. Inevitably, tanks get some light (or heavy) scratches due to wear and tear. My kevlar mesh jacket is somewhat abrasive, so I wanted something to protect the tank finish against it. I was drawn to the tank pad from TechSpec because it was more substantial and functional instead of just for show. TechSpec has a couple of patterns, but I like the Snake Skin pattern best. The center pad pattern matches the side pads and overall makes a nicely finished look for my Ninja 1000 bike. This pad is holding up well against my jacket and other rough interactions that happen.

Great product, increased control
These are a great addition. The first time i used them was for a track day at Auto club speedway and they performed flawlessly. I felt like I could lean forever and be stuck to the bike like glue. They are even comfortable to use around town when in casual clothes. I haven't had them for very long so I can't really comment about the durability but I see no wear at all so far.

Custom sized tank protector
I read a bunch of reviews for the different type tank protectors available... I am not a big fan of large, weird shaped tank protectors so I bought TechSpec Snake Skin Center Tank Pad that was closest in size & shape to my bike... a 2013 Aprilia Shiver 750. TechSpec didn't offer one made specifically for my tank shape so I picked one whose dimensions we more than enough to cover the area directly in front of my belt/jacket zipper. I then cut the material with regular scissors to a rectangle approximately 2 inches by 5 inches & applied it to the tank. Been on there ever since with no problems.... Doesn't take up a lot of space, just covers where I need it to. I really like the way it came out.

Easy to install. Great product.
I actually ordered this, then returned it for the same brand full protection kit. Install is easy, just read the directions. It was about 50f outside when I did it, so I took a blow dryer and heated the tank and the pad itself to 80f, and just eyed it carefully and slapped it on. I didn't have any bubbles or problem areas, just make sure to work a section at a time and work your way through. Great product.
