TechSpec Snake Skin Tank Pads Yamaha R3

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 left, right and center tank 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.

Got a ? about fitment before purchase
My knees don't go up that high on the tank. You guys must have really long legs LOL It appears from pictures that these grip only covers the tank portion which is fine however another purpose for me is to also grip the bike. My knees goes up just a tad on the 'tank' part. Most of my surface contact on my thigh would be the plastic piece.
Do these grips come with additional pads for the black plastic part right under the tank?
Hope my post make sense

Great Product, Much Improved Grip of the Tank
These tank grips are amazing. The quality of the material is good and it allows much more grip of the tank than without the pads. I rode my friend's bike that doesn't have these and my knees were sliding all over the place. Not to mention they also look good too.

Installation was super easy; however, they should be checked every hour or so to ensure that no parts of the pads are coming off the tank. I was in a rush to put these on and after waiting an hour, the pads were on perfectly so I left it like that. I checked it again the next morning and parts of the edges did not adhere properly. I had to use adhesives to make it stick. A good suggestion is to tape all around the edge of the pads overnight to avoid the problem that I had.

I wished TechSpec had made pads underneath the tank, where the side panels are like they have for other bikes. But other than that, fantastic product.

What a excellent buy!
The tech spec snake skin tank grip for the Yamaha R3 or any other motorcycle is the best tank grips for you bike period! The grips are large and cover a good amount of surface area on both sides of my gas tank as well as in the middle where my leather jacket and pants may touch. These grips are thick and plenty of meat on them which give the best possible grip in regardless weather conditions. These grips perform better then any other grips I have ever bought even under hard braking and cornering on the track these grips held up great. Tech spec tank grips are the last word in tank grips period no other brand compare to the quality fit and finish with install being a breeze only 5 minutes a must have and I recommend them 100% to anyone.

Follow Installation Videos + Stock Look
Make sure you use a hairdryer to warm the surface up before applying the product and also after it is installed. I was concerned at first thinking that this product might not adhere well to the tank of my Yamaha R3. I watched the manufacturer's installation videos and a random one on YouTube. It is not difficult to install and the final result is impressive. It looks stock. The padding is super thick. Watch the videos, use the hairdryer and take your time to apply and press the pads against the tank properly.
Also, the instructions say you have to let the adhesive cure for 12 hours.

It is totally worth it.

Weak adhesive but great product.
This product is meant to go on a gas tank but depending on your bike like me i want the knee pads to go where my knees are. The problem with that is the adhesive is not strong enough to stay where it needs to. I ended up using carpet tape and now I'm all set. Great material though!!

Great for track riding
Bought these to help grip the tank while riding on the track. I have stomp grips on my other bike and couldn't tell the difference. Great product and work great!

Function and style...
Very few tank pads actually enhance the look of a bike, but these look great on the R3. I'm 5'10" and the intended location for these matches my knee perfectly when riding on the ball of the foot.

The adhesive backing is the perfect amount to stickiness to stay in place, but light enough to be repositioned during installation (which I did many times because of my OCD).

The pads themselves do their job. They provide an excellent point of contact for aggressive riding, and have not appeared to deal any excessive wear to my leathers.

Excellent Product Only Problem Is The Adhesive *Easy Fix!*
Excellent Product Looks Amazing, And Works As Well As It Looks Five Stars Without A Doubt. My Only Thing Is The Fact The Adhesive Is Not Very Sticky, It wouldn't Stick On The Parts Of My Tank That Got Curvy (2015 Yamaha YZF-R3) But Its A Simple Fix Go To Say Home Depot, And Get Some Clear Double Sided 3M Adhesive Strips Cost Me About $3.00, Stuck It On Trimmed It To Shape And The Pads Stuck Like A Champ! This Is The Only Reason I Rated Durability As 3 Out Of 5.

Works, looks nice
The price feels a bit much for basically stickers but they went on easy, look nice, stay put. Techspec pads were recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad there was an R3 specific set.

I've used TechSpec on my other bikes, and have been reasonably satisfied (some exceptions). The materials are good quality, and application is straight-forward. (I have had issues with TS pads on my other bikes...center tank piece for my Ducati SF not cut to fit, thus would not adhere; And the lower side pieces for my 2015 R1 would not adhere, as those body parts are different plastic than the tank).

They seemed like they'd provide the kind of knee grip and protection I need to better handle the motorcycle. I am hoping they're as awesome as they look.
