Any recommendations on a Tank bra

Looking for something to protect tank easy to apply and doesn't look cheesy for the Gray niner.

I was gonna buy the stomp grip but the little nubs are too much for daily riding. I ordered some clear protective stuff from the bike shop. I think it was from Lockhart Phillips. When it comes in I'll post how it is w/ pics.

i too have tankslapper stuff. works good. i have big wear marks on it, where i would have worn through the paint/ clearcoat from my pants. plus if you mess up putting it on, just take it off and try again.

+1 on the tank slapper. Super easy to install and you can barely tell it's there. I also ordered the tank topper from the site for protecting the top of the tank from my tank bag. The tank topper was a PITA to put on.

What about a full tank bra? So cover the whole tank....say to cover a big dent?

most of the non-adhesive,, strap-on bras (rofl) will eventually get dirt and grime under it,,, no matter how hard you keep it clean,, and will sand away the finish... It's just like the automotive world,, in an ideal world... nothing,,, NOTHING,, would ever touch the paint, even a sponge!, but since it's obviously not an ideal world, you have to do with as best you can... keep it clean,, and keep it waxed, especially clean before waxing... then... let only what nature throws at it touch it, no cups on the roofs, no leaning on the car, not even touching unless the handles to get in... if your that anal about it all.. :P so in this case,,, even the adhesive "pads" would be better than a strap on bra (of course the pads will not allow the paint to breathe, but thats not a problem really) if you've got a dent,, and well from the sound of it,, the looks of the paint aren't going to be as important.. slap one of em on, but if you ever get it repaired,, toss it in the trash!


ALSO... for those of you that are handy with scissors or a razor... this tank slapper stuff is just the same stuff you can get in small rolls from most any auto-paint supplier, or high end detailing custom shop.. it's a 3M film that is used to cover the noses of cars and such.. but the stuff really is cool.. so cut yourself some for the bike,, and you'll have a good bit left over (and trust me you'll find something for it)
