Get it try it, use lots moistness, possibly cut it down a bit...it will protect tank from scuff marks and be nearly invisible.

When I remove it, will it damage the clearcoat?

I have used both the tankslapper, and it worked ok. there are pros and cons to the "vacuum" stick method.... it worked well for a while, but any break from the surface typically at the edge will cause it to come off. It is usually caused by dirt, or washing. I lost one side and ditched the other. I figure if it comes loose at any part, you need to completely remove, clean and reapply.

I found that the other clear stuff with the removable adhesive works well and stays put....I have removed some as well with no paint damage.

Thanks Lewdog. I will play around with both. Just seems like a matter of time before the tank gets messed up without them.

This is the kit I put on the Tamburini...Works great, and practically disappears into the paint. I am a big fan.

Question

I am also very much interested in this product. So auto trim is full kit and tank slapper is three pieces? Any other difference it looks like a same thing?

I really need it on my both bike I already got very light scruff marks on my Duc's tank from aerostitch.

keep us posted.
