Tank Pad

Has anyone found a good self adhesive pad that is for the bottom of the tank near where the seat is. It's to protect the paint and surface from the jacket rubbing on that part. I think R1200GS comes with a very nice piece from the factory.

I have ordered those ones. But I was thinking about the one in the middle of the tank like in this photo for R1200GS.

It seems strange that the G310R has a plastic center section for this exact reason, but they chose to leave the GS with paint. I didn't even know the GS was like that until I read this post.

Got the TechSpec Tank Pro 90 snake skin. It fits perfectly, narrow at the bottom and wider at top to match tank contour.

Nice choice! Looks great! Thanks for the pics. Techspec makes nice quality products. I just ordered the exact same one (Pro 90).

Hey KiwiJeeper,
I was looking at the same techspec tankguard this morning. Good to know that it is a perfect fit. What are you using on the sides though?
