I have a 06 r6 raven, and i'm looking to pick up something to protect the tank from all the rubbin:hump, just looking for something plain back without all the "cheezy" graffics and stuff. Anyone have anything? pics? point me in the right direction?

I have a small Pro Grip clear one on mine and it looks good and doesnt stand out. I got it at cycle gear and they had the clear and carbon fiber. Here is a pic...

The carbon one from ProGrip is amazing. It blends in with my raven nicely. Whatever you do, get the large one. I got the small one like Bullitt4110 posted (but in carbon) and I still get some scratching around the bottom of the pad. Do now I get to go spend another $20 to get the longer one.

just put your belt buckle to the side where it is out of the way
Ive seen jeans cause the swearl marks so bad that it look like someone to sand paper to the tank. And it took a lot of work to buff it out too. its extra protection.

Only Squids have to worry about belt buckles. :fact Zippers can scratch also. And even if there is nothing hard to scratch the bike, your clothing will eventually leave abrasion marks. I had marks on mine in less than 500 miles.
yeah no shit, im not stupid, and not a squid..just because i dont post on here like crazy doesnt mean i cant ride a bike through some twisties..and my tanks fine:321

Settle down buddy, it was a joke. I wasn't picking on you.

My tank had marks on it from my motorcycle pants in less than 500 miles, so I guess it just depends on the way you ride. I'd go with the longer one just to be safe.
