Tank protector

Anybody ever put a tank protector on there CTX 1300? I just really want to put it from the front of the seat to the bottom of the gas lid. Seems like my big fat foot when I swing it over there I hit it sometimes. Anybody ever put one on.

Do a forum search. There are a few who did add protector/overlays on that area as well as both sides of the false tank.

Here are a few from the Appearance & Body sub-forum where this information is most likely to be found (and where I moved this thread as well).

Don't know that all links still work but should be enough info to search the web.

I bought these Snake Skin Tank Grip Pads and added one to that area. Solved it.

I bought this one from someplace online. Didn’t cost much. I did have to trim it down a bit. I only got it because my beaded seat cover rubbed in front at times. I also had to trim the thickness so the lid would open all the way.

Yeah, that's the one I mentioned above. Same same with the gas cap.


Smart person! No doubt good looking too.
