1) strength is really good. Been down on rocks a few times, and although not cosmetically pretty still 100% on protection.

2) using RTV sealant was not such a good idea. These tanks "breathe" fumes and one of mine simply fell off while riding. Spent ages looking for it but it's gone for good :( There was no sealant stil on the tank, the vapours had lifted it off & I guess it was all still on the cover. I have now taken my other off, re-RTV'd it, but also put some gaffer tape around the edges (and under the tank, orange cover) to stop the last one going walkies when the vapours release the sealant again.

I'd buy another set (or just the one) if they were cheap, but what with import duties it's just too spendy for my right now.
