Stompgrip Traction Pads

How many of you guys/gals use them?

I used to have them on my old GSXR and they restricted my body movement in transitions but worked really well during heavy braking.

I have new leathers now and think that they might not be as restrictive.

I like mine, but they get sort of gooey (at the edges where they slide a touch) when it's very hot. Which is all the time right now.

I like mine- at first it felt different, but then I got used to it. I really like them while braking hard. It also helps while in mid-corner to plant your outside knee when you need to.

As far south as you are, I'd call Patrick and order them. That way you can just ride up, slap 'em on, and enjoy the ride home.

I think it depends. Some people ride with their legs smashed against the tank. If you ride this way and have trouble with sliding around, this is a perfect fit. If you ride around like it's a couch just sitting on top, then maybe I'd find somewhere else to drop $50.

I love my Tech Spec's

If I'm not mistaken, Joe (Prodigy) uses this stuff on his stuntbike's tank. That says a lot right there about grip.

You can order it for your specific bike, or you can order a sheet that you can custom cut.

Mine were about $50 for the tank pad, tank sides and frame pads. Other sets minus frame pads are like $45 I think.

They are releaseable and reusable.

Well I am about 6ft and during hard braking my knees keep on hitting the front fairing. So I will order a set or two.

I don't know what some would consider "vertically challenged", but I suspect at 6'1, it's probably not me.

I use the Stomp grips, and I like 'em. You can order straight from their web site, and I think they only cost like $20 for the set. http://www.stompdesign.com/stompgrip/home.asp
