A bit pricey, but I like the removability (is that a word) of their tank protectors. www.mag-knight.com

I own a mag-knight and while it is removable I have never gotten it to fit to my satisfaction. No matter what you do it never lines up 100% or has small gaps. If you look at their site there is a picture of one on a 919 and I can see the sloppy fit on that one as well. Needs Work.

I've been using clear vinyl cling material that is used by scrapbookers. It works great, has no adhesive at all, but is not only easily removeable, but doesn't come off in the wind, conforms pretty well to curves, and works over and over (I pull it off when I wash and wax the bike, and then clean it and put it back on.) It is almost invisible on the tank. The best part is, you can get several 8-1/2 X 11" size sheets for a couple of dollars on eBay and cut it to whatever shape(s) you want with scizzors. The scrapbookers use it for mounting "unmounted" rubber stamps to acrylic handles. I like this better than anything else I've tried, as I didn't want adhesive on my tank, and wanted it to be fairly unobtrusive to the look of the bike. This stuff also works good to protect your paint from saddlebag straps, bungees, etc. Here's an example on eBay.

I am going to be looking hard for a tank cover as over the weekend I collected about 5 more little chips in my paintwork on the tank. With all the dabs of black and clear touchups it's beginning to look like a teenagers zitty face... As for my knee, it collected the biggest stone of all, right on the side of the knee cap and it hurt like hell, leaving a small bruise, even with leathers on but at least I heel up all by myself and for free too...

hmmm...I was looking at tech spec's website and I like the snake grip over the fusion griptape looking one. They have another grip called "ice" but I don't know, the website's not clear about it. I might have to get the "make your own" kit at the bottom of the honda section its cheaper too. would black or clear be better on a candy red 919? Anyone have pics? ...ceebee, I picked up a bee on my throttle hand on the highway and it stung me before I could shake it off, then let go of the throttle to remove the throbbing stinger, then resumed riding at 45mph. Imagine if that sucker got stuck in the helmet. Maybe it was a hornet?

I emailed Tech Spec and if you can send them a pattern of what you want, they'll cut it for you for something like $49. I'm thinking about doing that for my 919 just so the cuts will look better than my hack job would end up being.

I went with the "full kit" from here their shipping was god-awful slow, but the product is great. Installation was a breeze (I am used to applying this kind of film to SMALL gadgets, so large areas with little to no curvature is easy). It is invisible unless you're looking for it, and provides a little bit more grip when squeezing the tank. I like that they include protection for pretty much all the forward-facing painted surfaces: sides and back of tank, front and both sides of the the front fender, tops of the tail section, and head light (pretty much anything a rock will chip when driving). I do wish there was more complete coverage for the tank though, since I am sloppy when I fill up. Also, I ended up using the headlight piece just above the center tank piece for a little added help.
