Re: Targa 1/2 tank bra

Took off the pro-grip tank pad to put on the bra. The bra isn't as tight a fit as it should be. Not too mention, it didn't quite conform as well to the bike as it could have. So, ordered 2 more pro-grips, one clear and another black. If I could afford it, I'd get me a second look tank cover!

Re: Targa 1/2 tank bra

'tankslapper', that's still one step higher than a squid right?

Re: Targa 1/2 tank bra

You guys serious? Looks good in theory, but how many here use it? It says re-usable, I'm assuming it clings onto the bike. If so, how durable is it? If it's the ####, then I'll certainly get it. If anything, my concern is protecting the tank sides from leg abrasion.

BTW, thanks for the quick link Conq.

Re: Targa 1/2 tank bra

I just paid the $21.45 and ordered one!!

I just read over the site and was sold. Thanks a lot fellas. Just when I thought I'd run out of ideas on how to spend my wife's money!

So, I'll put the tank side pieces on when I get them and am thinking about putting on the black pro-grip center pad versus the tankslapper center piece. Yes, it'll look great. Thanks again.

Re: Targa 1/2 tank bra

The Tankslapper is one of very few products that work just like it's supposed to.

Another great site to visit.

Re: Targa 1/2 tank bra

Got my tankslapper today, put it on, and

Now I have just a minor question... Will what very few and very minor bubbles that I was not able to get out eventually dissappear (evaporate) like those that do with window tint? Provided they are the result of trapped moisture and not lint of course. I probably have 3 or 4 micro bubbles on each side.

Even still, if they don't, overall I'm satisfied with the application and appearance.

Re: Targa 1/2 tank bra

They should... but if they don't, it's easy enough to reapply
