OEM tank pad

Does anyone use one? What do you think of it?
I need something softer than aftermarket pad for my boys.

Honda genuine accessories are good stuff - and that looks the part to me. Most after-market ones are too narrow to protect all the paint.

I've had one on my 919 since day1. Won't do anything for your "boys" if you have the pad mounted in the right place, but it will protect the paint better than most aftermarket pads.

Thats because it's not sold as an accessory specifically for the 919. The tank pad in question is from an ST1100. Part #08P61-MCS-100

As you can, see it covers alot more area compared to the aftermarket pads. It also looks like it belongs there and it's "Boogie" the shop cat approved!

That is a nice one. I have the Honda one for the CBR and it doesn't cover nearly as much surface as that one does. I'll pay $63 to keep my tank from getting all jacked up.

I have used these on every Honda since my old ST1100. They are a very nice piece and they are raised enough to really keep you away from the tank's painted parts........ Also look at the side panels, they are made of the same material and are great.

sure it will, they are all over the place. You had your pad from day 1, you are not the one with nuts slamming in 919 metal tank
Pad is actually listed as an accessory for 919 in european catalog

I'm almost 6' foot with a 34'' inseam so I tend to sit a little farther back from the gas tank. I've also installed .95Kg straight wound fork springs so the front end dives a bit less under hard braking (I'm also in the habit of squeezing the tank with my knees) as well as keeping the fork higher in it's stroke during normal riding conditions, eliminating some of the "stink bug" effect (less likely to slide forward on the seat) you get with the stock progressive wound spring. These things go a long way in keeping "Larry, Darryl & Darryl" from smashing into the gas tank.
As for the Tank pad, if you want to purchase one from Europe, be my guest. The majority of 919 owners on this site live here in the USA.....where the Tank pad IS NOT listed as an accessory, so I posted the part # for the ST1100 where it IS availible. Sheesh, some people!

Thanks man.
who said anything about purchasing on in Europe? Did they legalize weed in so cal too? I just made the statement that this particular pad is A 919 genuine pad, despite US dealer telling you otherwise. No, you didn't invent its compatibility with 919, sorry.

I agree with HasBeen. I've put quite a few miles on my 919. Half were without a tank pad and half were with. Granted, I don't have the OEM pad, but I don't think it matters. Have someone kick you in the nuts, then have them put on a couple pairs or socks and do it again. Notice a difference? Didn't think so.

Press Any Key To Continue.
