tank scratches

My r6 is fairly new and I have a few small scatches around the tank area, My tank is black so it stands out like a sore thumb! I believe the culprite is my jacket. I have been looking at tank pads but by the looks of it, none of them do a very good job of protecting the whole area and mostly are for looks. I think i'm going to go with tech spec's pads for the sides but what is a good pad for the top of the tank??? All of the pads that I have seen only cover a smal area. Don't hate, I like to keep my toys mint!

Re: tank scratches

Haven't seen anything much bigger then the regular old ones for the top.

BUT, if you're real picky, there is such a thing as a vinyl protector that's clear, you can have put on. Pretty sure most tint shops, and auto vinyl places do it.

Friend got the front end of his car wrapped in it, and works great.

Re: tank scratches

Buy some stomp grips as big as you can, flip em over, cut your own pattern for a tank protector. Buy more, and put them where they are supposed to go. Win?

Re: tank scratches

A buddy of mine was just telling about an entire wrap kit that was recoomended to him by Del-Amo motorsports; I think it's the wrap you guys are talking about but it on the entire bike.
I was told you can't even tell anything is on there...Dunno.

Re: tank scratches

My 2006 only has 1500 miles and my tank (which is black aswell) is all scratched up. I need to buff it and get a clear bra on it.
