I just want to try them to see if I like how they feel. I think my body position is ok, but I would love any/all pointers from those with experience or those who see things on which I can improve. All ways looking to get faster...

if you rattle canned your tank.....the stomp grip will surely rip the paint off if you don't like it.

i used the stomp grips previously (purchased from patrick, he usually stocks them)....they are awesome for hard braking, but they hinder body movement mid turn. that's my experience with them, i stopped using them.....but it's all preference....try em out and see what you think.

My understanding is that all your weight should be on your pegs, therefore you do not use your legs against the tank to pull yourself up, or to hang off. This is contrary to some body position teachings that I have seen where people actually hold themselves off the bike with thier knees against the tank. In that case, maybe they are good.

My right side stomp grip came off at the track. Then I heard this opinion so I took the other one off. Not going to buy again.

That absolutly right you should never hold your body wait up against the tank it should all be on the inside foot peg.

In the Texas heat, the stompgrip has a good reputation of sliding down the tank. I now have Tech-Spec and it's a much better product. Stompgrip looks like some sort of shower mat that's been glued on to a tank.

weight is on the inside peg during turning...thinking it may help with braking and set-up for the corner?

You MUST put weight on your foot pegs under breaking because if you hold onto the gas tank thats what gets the bike unstable and it's more prone to take weight off the rear tire.

Only reason i still have the stop grips is because they came with the bike and i dont feel like scrubbing all that stick off. Other then that i cant notice a difference.

I'm not sure I buy the whole "stompgrips move your weigh higher up and make the bike unstable during braking" argument though.

Have you actually used them?

Youre taking weight off your wrists (higher up and at the extreme front of bike) by clamping down with your knees... NOT your feet. You can still weight your feet normally. I'd think if anything this would help center your weight during braking.
At any rate, if you have trouble holding yourself off the tank during braking, its better to have stomp grips on and be able to hold your weight further back on the bike, than to have no grip and slide forward and slam your weight into the forward portion of the bike.

Thats mah two cents. I've ridden with em, I've ridden without em. I love em and don't want to ride without em anymore. My friends that have ridden my bike all agree they help under braking.

yeah that's Larry Myers.

I decided to check them out on my bike despite that Larry M. said they are junk. I figure for $40 what the heck. Well honestly I donít see the big deal on the track either way. Since like someone mentioned you should be on your feet in the turns anyway so to me I donít fill they do anything while leaned over and they donít hurt me to get into position either. I really donít notice them unless Iím breaking. Of course Iím not someone that has an exaggerated body position to get a knee down and I know you aren't either. If the person canít hold there weight up in a curve with your legs on the pegs then yes Iíd say the stomp grip works great to keep your leg attached to the tank without sliding off in a lean. But from what Iíve been tought thatís the wrong body position anyway. Now where I do notice the stompgrips are great is under heavy breaking. It helps keep me in the seat especially at the end of the day when my legs are tired already. So for $40 try and see if you like them. Heck Iíve seen them on a few AMA bikes like Ben Spies and the Haydenís Kawi at the bike shows and last I checked they are a lot faster then the CMRA racers. Of course they probably have them on because thatís one of there sponsers, but it doesnít seem to slow them down is my point on that.
Anyway good for breaking and no difference to me in the curves.

ever felt the bike move around under heavy braking?

instead of squeezing the tank with your knees....try focusing all the weight on the pegs and almost standing up on the pegs....you can brake much harder and with less effort.

and in the corners....focusing the weight up high on the tank is a good way to do it wrong.
