Tank Knee Protection

Not real fond of the protectors on Wingstuff, any suggestions? White bike, dark color is not good.

I Just ordered a set a few days ago for my 2013 after seeing them on a few bikes here on the board. Yours included. They will be here today. I also ordered a small sheet of matching snake skin padding to make some rub bumpers for the back of my bags where our helmets will rub against the paint when using the helmet locks.

Could you cut them down to a smaller size so they aren't such a large distraction from the bike color especially if the color is not black? How are they formed and would cutting them look bad?

I am a lousy trimmer, I think it would look unprofessional.

Techspec looks great!... But boy, they are not shy when it comes to price...😦 I'm sure it's worth it, though...

Another one here for Techspec rubber protectors. Like mudbug, I have 3m (carbon fiber looking) protector on my other bike where I wanted a much larger coverage area.

Yes, they are expensive at $69.95, for one? I don't think so.
