Many of you have been following the work we've been doing on the Tech-Specs - we're happy to announce that the design phase is complete and production is tooled up and ready to kick off. The kit isn't openly available to public yet; this is your chance to purchase the kit early and get a good deal. The product information isn't available on Home page, but here are the highlights.

What are these Gripster Tank Grips?
  • Provides additional grip between the rider's legs and tank during hard braking and cornering. Allows for proper body positioning while minimizing sliding around the seat.
  • Rubber grip pads, adhesively affixed to the tank. Tank pads are fully removeable and can be reused. Adhesive is clear coat safe and will not damage paint.
  • Protects painted surfaces from scratching.
  • Doesn't damage riding pants/leathers.
Available in 2 material choices
  1. Snake Skin - ~0.125" thick with a an aggressive diamond pattern. This material offers the highest level of grip and is recommended spirited riding, track riding, or someone looking for the most available grip. Edges are beveled to eliminate snap points.
  2. High Fusion - 0.035" thick with a light texture that loosely matches the stock seat's material. This material is suitable for all types of riding, but is not quite as grippy as the Snake Skin. However, it is the thinnest material offered and minimally impacts tank width.
It's hard to describe the benefits of the keeping the rider from sliding around during braking and hard cornering - but I'll try. Less pressure is needed at the knees to stabilize the rider, so you'll find body positioning easier and more stable with less fatigue after a day in the saddle or a few track sessions. These are one of those products that you'll take for granted until you hop on another bike with a slippery tank and seat.

A couple questions popped up about the availability of the other tank protectors. The other tank protectors are available for the regular/full price, but are not available for the group buy 'deal'.
