    Suggestion Needed for good side grip need pads

    Hi All,
    I could not really find anything specific for the FZ6, I did find some random ones on Amazon and Aliexpress but they do not have any reviews.
    Does not look like cycle gear or revzilla carries them for our bike unless you want to make your own and I do not want to.

    any suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks

    They make them for the FZ6. I have them on my SV1000s and they are great!

    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Motogiro is right on. I've got snake skin on my FZ6. Lots of grip, made for the bike, easy to apply, looks great!

    Thanks. I ended up getting some cheap ones... which probably won't work.. I will wait and see.. if not those will be on my list. I'll post pics of whatever I get if they work and stick on. For reference here is the link.
    These seem to match the dimensions I wanted.

    +1 ^^^^. Excellent quality, still look brand new and they are removable.

    Nope, sticky only. The side ones came pre-cut (as shown). They are their top of the line and follow the tank and seat lines really nice (IMO).

    The rear, I didn't like what they had so I ordered a larger piece and cut it basically rectangular.

    I bought the same ones last season, they look good, nice and grippy, and they haven't moved or let go at all so far.
