I haven't been able to find any either so if you find some, please let me know.

BTW - Honda makes some for the ST1300 but they are a bit large for the 919.

Is it holding up well, tpirman? Not peeling or fading? Would you do it again?

I installed STOMP GRIP for a Ducati 999. I looked for the bike that has a similar tank shape, works great, like velcro.

They also make universal kits from Stomp. I recently installed these on the Tuono, and fell in love with them after my last trackday. Slowing down into turn one, and hanging off the bike was much, much easier.

How would those hold up as in protecting the tank from scratches.

I like the tank pads so far, they keep me from sliding forward on the bike and crushing my boys. Yes, they technically protect the tank from getting scratched as well.

The Stomp Grips are made of heavy gage clear rubber, so they stand up well to any abuse.

Hello, McFly? Sorry, I couldn't resist. They are called a traction pad ya know. Basically, stick your inside thigh where you want it, plant your opposite toe on the tip of the footpeg, point your knee in the direction you want to go, slide your butt off the bike, and the fun will commence shortly. With a high clearance bike such as the Tuono, it becomes even more of a challenge to get as much of the rider's weight as low to the inside of a corner as possible. The Stomp is just another aid to facilitate this.

Tank Pads

I bought my pad just to keep from scratching the tank surface. It is only on the top side though. It actually was made specifinally for the Hornet but it fits the 919 perfectly.

Thump, we are talking about the pads on the sides of the tanks.

They didn't stipulate, I assume it's the 03 and up, although I see no difference in the tank design of any year Ducati 999.

BARROSART. I personally wouldn't do that handlebar mod but I HAVE to say it looks really cool. That's a sharp lookin' 9'er.

hi, I just want to confirm that if anyone else have successfully fit the 03 Ducati 999 Stomp Grip on our 919 tank. I am about to get it based on the feedback on this forum, but just want to make sure. Thanks!
