Stay away from Lockhart, they are cheap and the mounting plastics break too easy. I do have a Targa tank bra that has nice strong mounting clips but have opted for a more cleaner look with a full carbon tank pad from Geelong Carbon Craft.moomoo said:Looking for a Tank Bra (2003/954). Any Recommendations? Comments? Reviews?
Really?... I've had a tank bra on several bikes ('93 F2, '95 RR, '99 XX & '03 RR) and never encountered this problem. Guess I've been lucky. :idunno:nedro said:MooMoo, The reason Booth was so short with you is because we've been around this subject before and it seems that people who remove their tank bras usually find spots of warn off paint.
Well, I went with the Tank Slapper (the regular version, not 3M). I found it real easy to put on. And I am the worst sticker slapper in the world. Rode over 1000 miles this weekend in the NC twisties and it worked great. No rolling, no pulls. The sqeege is the ticket. And time will tell.cbr99xx said:Really?...

my 929 came with a LP tank bra on it and it was the first thing I took off. still have it if anyone wants it. my tank slappers are great, haven't moved at all since I put them on. they took a little work to get all of it down but I think it was worth it. It might be me but the 1 inch above the seat that they recommend for the middle piece is a bit low so I'm gonna take it off sometime and move it up some. Could be cause I'm short and have to lean on the tank a little anyway when riding as straight up as I can (short arm disease)bubba said:i for one did not like the tank slapper for the 929, it came off several times, it was not clear (some off clear color)
HOWEVER, I recently put the one i had leftover for the 929 on another japanese bike and it was great. used it at the track, slid all over it and it stayed put.
BTW - i used the LP for my 929 and loved it
