Tank pad
« on: June 25, 2012, 10:02:38 PM »
Hi All,

Picked up my CT today. Very impressed! I am interested in putting on a tank pad and there is a pic attached of the one I like. Has anyone fitted one and if so, do you have a part number and idea of cost please. Cheers!

I have one of these tank pads fitted. It's quite thick and not just a thin sticker. However I've noticed that my jacket doesn't touch the tank so now I'm questioning whether I need it. On my sports bike the riding position was different leaning over the tank to reach the bars. As I'm completely upright riding the CT the need for a tank pad is just cosmetic. I'm 16 stone which is 224 pounds or 101kg, so not a skinny fella by any means. Next time you ride your CT have a look down, hopefully your not as rotund as me.  :300:

Yep, I came to the same conclusion. The tank pad on my Tuono has certainly seem some action but my jacket is no where near the tank on the CT

Thanks guys, much appreciate your help. I will take a good look when I am next aboard. Thank you Mr T for the part number and price. By the way Strider, I'm not far off your build as well!

I also thought my jacket was no where near the tank during riding, until I found a few faint scratches on the tank pad area caused while getting on and off the bike.

The OE tank pad looks ugly, so I fitted a neat generic pad which I trimmed down to size.
