They help, mostly if your jacket has a exposed zipper......I like mine
Hey Devious, when you took your tank pad off, was it a bitch?? Will most tank pads take off your paint if you decide to take them off??Devious2xs said:I bought the Triumph 'carbon look' one when I bought the bike. The stock paint is amazingly soft. but the first Triumph pads would not stay stuck to the tank, so I replaced the adhesive.
When I repainted my bike, I decided I prefered the look without it (that may change at any time). I haven't had any scratches yet, but I try to do what I can to prevent them.
