What tank grip pads are you using?

Hope to have my new F3 800 delivered this week .
I've always used Tech Spec gripster pads on my last few bikes, but i'm wondering what people are using and what they recommend.
I would like to have transparent ones but not a fan of stomp grip
Has anyone used the clear tech spec or maybe the R & G ones?
Cheers

I just installed the Tech specs on my bike yesterday. I haven't really had the chance to test them out but I can tell you if you want them then order them asap. I bought it from Techspec usa on eBay and it took a few weeks because they had to cut it etc.

I was using the Techspec Snakeskin pads as I had previously used their C3 pads. I've recnelty had to remove them as the adhesive came away from the tank grip and peeled off leaving a very nasty residue on the bike. The C3 ones weren't as grippy but the were kind on my leathers. The Snakeskin ones have chewed up my Dainese leathers a treat.

The R&G one offer, less comfort than Techspec, but the adhesive is much better, or they are thinner so have less chance to peel off. But they were even mroe aggressive than the tech spec.

I think I will go to the Tech Spec C3 for the next set as I can't afford to wreck expensive leathers.

And I'm not that fast.

I don't have any on my F3 yet, but I've been using Stomp Grip on my sporting motorcycles since it came out, in both black and clear, and it really seems to save a lot of energy. The adhesive comes off clean too.

I have stomps on the track bike and they are by far the best grips out there. But they're not comfortable on a long run out (or under Kevlar jeans) and are again pretty aggressive.

So I guess it depends on your riding.

I don't ride in jeans.

Stomp Grip doesn't tear up your leathers, and when you squeeze, it's like being bolted to the bike.
