Thanks for the discount, I just ordered a combo set and I can't wait to try them out.

Awesome to hear Craig,

Let us know what you think once received and applied! Cheers!

Slapped them on with ease, they look awesome and stop me from sliding forward on the tank/seat. They are also saving my side cases from getting scuffed up from my fiance getting on and off the bike. Great product!  :great:

Can you give any details about your new tank wrap designs?  <snip>

Bump.

Ditto on the question. Would this just be graphics, or grips, would this be for plastic gas tanks that are difficult to attach
grips to? Inquiring minds etc etc.  ;)

Ok, I put the snakeskin side case protection on, and it fits perfectly. I had to blue tape pieces until I figured out the correct layout though. The picture does pretty much give it away, so I had a starting point.

I also put the lowers in snakeskin on, and those could stand to better match the body piece they go over, but they are still very nice.

I had one of the side case pieces come loose from the adhesive film when I peeled the backing off. Actually it was already loose, and I peeled from the other end, but it would not reattach. So I just mounted it and pressed it down and then used some clear silicon adhesive between the film and the snakeskin rubber. If you have to do this, make sure you mask with blue tape carefully and press the tape down well. I let it dry for 30 minutes and then peeled the tape off, and that took the adhesive that was left after I wiped the excess off with the tape when I removed it.

Seems to be solid now.

I'd give it a 10 out of 10, because I don't mind fixing one little problem. It looks good, too.  :motonoises:
