Tank protectors.
« on: May 06, 2018, 07:09:37 AM »
I’m looking to have a tank protector on the RS.  Any recommendations?

I’m not looking for something expensive, but I do want a quality one.  I’m really just concerned about protecting the tank from zippers and belt buckles.  I don’t really need the side pads.

Baglux are good but very ugly. Also known as Bagster. I'm sure you'll get them in the States.

That’s what I went with...or the kit for my bike.  I just wanted the center strip, but they didn’t have one in the right shape.  At least I’ll have the side pieces if I need them.

I installed the sides because of my 'stich suit. The inside zippers tend to scratch the paint.

Have you thought about a clear film?

The PO put the tech skins on my GSAW  I actually love them functionally both on the center and the tank sides.  But then again, it's a GSA so looks ain't the priority  8)

Jimmy,

I specifically was thinking about your bike when I commented above. Cost effective and zero disruption of the lines on the bike.
