I recently bought a tank pad and stuck it on myself. I was more worried about cleaning the bike and making sure that the pad was centered and level on the tank that i must have bumped the sticky part of the pad onto something because one of the branches off of the pad is not sticky and seems to peel up after 5 mins of me pushing it down. What can i use to permanently keep it down but that wont hurt my paint in the event that i feel the need to remove the pad altogether?

Take it off and throw it in the garbage. Go here and order up a kit. Here are some pics. It offers much better protection. Also you can take the tank pad off and put it back on. Its not adhesive.

I already went through 1 tank pad. It kept coming up. I went with Progrip and it came up a couple times. I used a blow dryer to re-heat it and melt the adhesive and then I let it cool and it hasn't came back up. :cool:
