i like these ones. plain and simple and have good coverage. i got the clear one on my bike.
They're only huge if you're buying it for fashion. Are ya, pretty boy? :killingme
Tank Slapper non-3M is pretty good - but the edges b/t the rider side of the tank and the knee locations is unprotected. And, make sure you read the instructions on the website as the tank slapper didn't come with instructions (you shouldn't put them on dry).
I just ordered some from here.http://www.riderforums.com/3rd-gen-z1000-z1000sx-ninja-1000/65380-tech-spec-tank-pads.html
Im pretty certain this is the way ill be going on my Z.
