TechSpec Snake Skin Tank Pads Yamaha R1 / R1M / R1S

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

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.

Did not like it at first!
It felt weird at first and I almost peeled it off and called it a day. It does not look cool, it does not feel awesome, but like my gloves and boots, it really connects me to the bike, something I find especially important for squirrely bikes like the R1. It will also protect the bike from zippers and other metal on your jacket or jeans. Once I got used to it, I would not want to ride without it. It even saved me from an unexpected 12 o'clock wheelie once. I am buying my second set for my new bike as one of my first mods if that helps anyone.

Good stuff
Easy to install. Use a heat gun or hair dryer. Take your time and have patience.

Works great, adds a lot of grip. Will use this grip again.

1/5th stayed put 110º hot!
The techSpec is does what is is supposed to do if it stays glued to the surface you're applying it too. I followed all installation instructions exactly as directed waited the required 24 hours for drying before use.
The side tank pads stayed down fine on my R1M the lower side pads lifted just tiny little bit at the far back edge closest to my knees. not really an issue. My main problem was the center tank pad. it completely came off during a trackday. Lucky for me a friend saw it come off so I was able to retrieve it later in the day. I reapplied it with 3M Super 80 Rubber and Vinyl Adhesive and it's been staying so far.
I would recommend these over other brands. I do have to say it was 110º in the shade the day of my trackway so the temperature could have had something to do with the center pad coming off.
Aside from all of that these grip pads work great and do what they are meant to do. they just cost to damn much for some rubber and glue.

ALWAYS NEED PROTECTION
R U on Jun 13, 2017
The snake skin pattern grips leather or denim equally well. It doesn't inflict excessive wear on denim. It's a harder compound than the other TechSpec patterns, and doesn't wear anywhere near as fast. Looks good.

I grip hard with my knees and ankles, I did off road mountain riding so it is natural. I am somewhat aggressive, I slip and move without it, it connects me to the bike. Saved me from an unexpected 12 o'clock once, not that I can do expected ones, lol..

needed the additional grip and they look cool on my bike.

I've seen it in the dealer. I live in Reno and these are produced locally. I think they look great and are nice and grippy.

Is this included the side and center pads?
Ka Fai C on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I just ordered the kit and it includes 5 pads. Two for the sides of the tank, one for the center of the tank, and two for the side plastics just below the tank.
The pads stick great to the tank, but mine don't adhere that well to the plastics. Overall provide a lot better grip on the bike when moving around on it.
