Tank Grip Pads

For anyone interested, I sent a template to TechSpec, for some tank grip pads for the Brutale 800. My template is for just a small patch so as not to cover any of the graphics on the tank plus it will look better. (IMO).

You can have them cut you a set under $60.00 with shipping.

Allworld,

Sounds like a plan... can you possibly provide some details on your design? The current TechSpec tank coverage just does not look good.

https://techspec-usa.com/products/mo...snakeskin.html

You have a 2016 Brutale... is the tank the same as my 2018 RR? Any idea?

I am interested, and want a set for my 2018 Brutale 800 RR-- if they provide grip, and do not make the beautiful tank design look ugly.

Thanks!

Call TechSpec, 775-783-5110, ask for Scott tell him you would like a duplicate of order #100018159.

My Brutale is a 2016 RR so the pads will only be for a small patch, sort of a wedge shape. I will post some pictures once I receive them.

All,

Rodger that... I think I will wait to see what you designed unless you have a picture of your template on your tank.
I am a big fan of these TechSpec grips: had some on my Triumph STRX 675... and I miss having them on my Brutale especially under
hard deceleration... thanks!

Can I see a picture of the template? I'm interested in some grip pads but Cycle Gear doesn't have any clear ones and I have an America and would like to see the graphics..

Hi Rob, just an opinion...and you know you get what you pay for:

I'd submit that the proposed template is too large. Not by much. I am looking at the space around the template for an even "reveal" and what I see is no reveal at the seat/tank interface, about a 1/4" reveal at the parallel line along the frame tube, and no reveal at the tank line parallel to the ground.

I think I would strive for a 1/4" reveal around the perimeter as this would provide a nice aesthetic and plenty of protection.

Is the pad to be clear or black? Textured?
