    Tank side pads suggestions?

    I've never had side tank pads, but would like to give them a try. Dropping $75 for a set of SnakeSkins seems dumb, but the cheaper FZ6 alternatives get bad ratings. I'm liking the idea of clear instead of black, but can't find any for Fz6. I see a lot of clear options for other bikes for around 20 bucks, and am thinking I'll buy a set and just cut them to fit. Has anyone done this before? If so, what model bike did you choose to start from?

    Thanks for any suggestions,

    Snake skins, no doubt....

    $65 here: https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...-fz6-2004-2010

    The rear one, I trimmed down from a larger one (you can just see the edge of it-rectangular).

    They are removable should you wish to put on another bike.

    Looks OEM (IMO) and still appear brand new (about 10 years old now).

    I agree the snake skins are great! I had mine for years and they give me great grip.
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!
