    I know techspec & stomppads seem to be the top grip pads. Do either of these stay stuck on aftermarket plastic gastank? Stomp pad has the glue stuff you can get but neither seem to have perforated pads like graphics have to be to stick to these tanks.

    I have a newer IMS tank if that helps, iv heard they have change the plastic some over the years.

    I guess there isn't anything that works then? Techspec and Stomppad have neither one responded yer in emails I sent either.

    Have you used it on a tank before? I was hoping for some first hand experience with something that has worked.

    eBay, live with the shame and buy something with GSXR or R1 on it. 'official' tank pads for my bike were ~$80, ones with GSXR on them cost $14 ;)
