I have used the StompGrip pads before on my R6 and they worked wonderfully. At the track they help hold you tightly on the bike which gave me more confidence and on the street they even let you use your legs and torso to support your weight rather than your arms and wrists...it's a nice change on a R6. Only problem with them was that the adhesive wasn't all that good and the pads tended to slide a little over time with the constant pressure of your knees. They also peel at the edges. However, they are cheap to replace and peel back of fairly easily. I would reccomend them.
I had a car-oriented shop apply a single piece of 3M clear film that covers the back and sides (knee areas) of the tank. It's very nearly invisible and is more resistant to scuffs than the paint, so I'm very happy with it. Since it was a custom job, it cost me $100.
Let's see...checking out recent posts....Ahh, knee protectors...hmmmm sounds like knee pads, that'd be funny if I could find a humorous looking set of knee pads...and post it....Oh krap, what's this!? Look at this guy! and he's wearing the new AlpineStars SuperRe-tard suit!!!
This guy is almost worse than some of the Triumph models on the website!
