Tank Protectors
« on: August 28, 2018, 08:27:04 AM »
Has anyone affixed any form of tank protector that suits the Motorsport colours. I am finding that my coat is catching the tank

Don't like tranditional tank protectors so I cut a piece of 3M Ventureshield transparent film to shape and used that.

You can buy small sheets online and places like ebay etc. Like the fact that you can peel it off at a later date with no damage.

It's fine for protecting the tank from coat zips etc.   :038:

Hi
Had 3M venture shield on my last 3 bikes fitted professionally including the soon to be gone red XR
Motorsport XR is due to be covered next week
You can get a kit just for the tank and fit it yourself
I've always used Russell at Invisible Patterns near Haydock as he's always done an A1 job
