TechSpec Snake Skin Tank Pads Yamaha R6

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.

A nice looking grip solution
This product was very easy to install and looks great on my Matte Gray 2013 R6. Just follow the instructions carefully and make sure that the surface is prepped for application (I used windex, it adhered quite nicely) and that temperature is as recommended. I made sure both the tank and the snakeskin itself were 80+ when applying.

Fit great, looks terrific, makes staying put much easier. It really makes you feel much more planted and helps with smooth throttle control. I am very pleased so far. I have worn my textile pants and it does not seem to tear them up.

tank grip started to peel off after a month
Initial thoughts: I installed these awesome tank grips on my motorcycle about a month ago. I love the amount of grip that they offer, which most of the time Im wearing jeans and the jeans make my legs slide around a bit.

Usage: For me, these come very usefully is when I break hard and instead of putting all my pressure on the handlebars and wrists, I just hug the tank with my legs and I take all the inertia off the handlebars and my wrists, which in result gives me more maneuverability

Installation: These tankgrips were very easy to install on my 2015 Yamaha R6, and they glued immediately. Just size em up before peeling the protective film attached to the adhesive.

Problems: After a month of usage, my tank grip started peeling off. Not the glue layer but the grip and bottom layer started peeling apart.

Conclusion: For the money, I would of figured I would get more durability out of this grip. However, I would still recommend the product given that the side tank grips are holding like champs! :)

Great product! Looks amazing and keeps your from sliding around on the bike. Holds your legs in place especially on the curves and when braking.

Best bet for good grip!
I've been using the Snake Skin since it came out and it's been on every Motosylum Racing 132 race bike I have had since then. The grip is good and it is easier on the leathers than other products. Even after years of abuse and a couple crashes the Snake Skin provides consistent feel and friction just like when it was new.

Better than stomp grip
Really like this product opposed to the stomp grip I had on my last bike. I ride in jeans most the time and the tech spec is far more comfortable than the stomp grip when gripping the tank. Only downfall is I'm having s couple corners not sticking one hundred percent to the tank. Other than that I love it and will get this for any future bikes.

Some adhesive problems.
Two of the pads had adhesive problems. Half of the adhesive was coming off and when applied to the plastic bike parts, they didn't stick. The pads that went on the tank, which I cared more about, stuck and work great!

R6 Snake Skin Tank Pads
I really liked the kit. However the glue on 2 of the pads were discolored and looked almost old. Sure enough they won't stay stuck down in those 2 spots. Overall quality product. Hopefully I can get some replacements from Revzilla or the Manufacturer. Great Grip great looks and easy Install. I do think they are a little over priced for what they are but not by ALoT.
