Tank Protection

Hi,
I am trying to track down something to cover the tank with so as to not get any scratches. I'm after something clear.
I can find a few products that are designed for specific models but nothing for the Dragster RR.
I have heard about a product that you cut to size yourself, but only word of mouth and I cant seem to find anything on google.
Has anyone ventured down this path?

Whereabouts are you on the planet lozdog?

Ventureshield has a good reputation, it's a 3M product. A competent supplier/fitter should be able to make up and apply a custom made kit for your bike. Might cost a bit more than an off the shelf kit though.

In the UK I've head of this company making kits to suit bikes not listed. Obviously you'd need to ride in, ride out for a custom kit, rather than order and fit yourself, so you'll need to find someone relatively local.

Hi, on my race fairings and road bikes I use KPMF 135 Aliphatic Stoneguard to protect the leading edges and the belly pan. Its fairly easy to work with, 130Ám thick.

If your local e.g UU, I can send a bit in the post to you so that you can see how it is to work with. Just PM if you want a bit.

Thanks, sorry for the late reply.
I went with the 3m product. was a lot of work and learnt alot. generally took at least 2 trys. and we learnt not to take on to much. its not for the faint of heart. you need a LOT of patients. Im glad I did it tho. Im more relaxed about the bike now and I want to do more. I only had time to do most of the tank and the nose cone.
thanks for your comments
