B4 - best tank grip pads ?

What are the best brand of tank grip pads for the Brutale ?

I want some clear grippy stuff as I find the tank a bit slippery to grip with my knees, especially as I wear jeans most of the time these days

thanks

cheers

Well so far we have a choice of :

Stomp grip - the original - 40
R&G Eazi grip - 30
Generic from China on ebay 7 !

I can only find the R&G in pre cut parts so will try some of those

cheers

Bogie, avoid the R&G Eazi Grip, they're not great. I've tried all of them, Stomp, Tech Spec H2 and Snakeskin, R&G.

So far I like d the Tech Spec Snakeskin, for a balance of wear on leathers and comfort. The downside was that the thin parts came off the bike after about a year. but I did take these completely off the old tank and reapplied them to the new one.

The best grip are Stomp, but through jeans these could be a bit uncomfortable.

I have been recommended Easy-Grip (I think they are a bit like Stomp) by Hampshire MV. I mainly wear leathers on the MV, so may opt for these.

Depends on what you want really. I prefer a balance of comfort with grip.

The importers (Speedycom) don't have MV ones, I contacted Techspec via ebay and they sent me some. They were very helpful.

the stomp grips are ok but they are not tailored specifically for the bikes tank contours, they require cutting and although grip ok you can't really cut them to suit so with their dimple patterns so don't look that great

I've had Stomps on 3 different track bikes. They work great for gripping leather. Bet as mentioned, are a bit too aggressive thru jeans.

Bogie, I need to get a new set of pads for my F3, I've contacted TechSpec USA and asked about a set for the F3 and a B4 in the UK.

Also, are you the same Bogie from SELOC?
