Tank protector film.

Where online can I find the clear tank protectors that ship to the U.S. i like the ones listed on the suzuki germany accessory page that have the v strom logo.

The clear ones on Suzuki Canada will also do but they wont ship to the US.

I was also looking for a clear tank protector, but decided on the Tech Spec. Very glad I did. I didn't realize how practical they are for gripping the tank with your legs/knees, especially for fast braking, keeps you from sliding forward. I really miss them on my 650 when I ride it. I got the mid-priced one, high fusion.

I won't fit tech spec gripsters. I had them on my ulysses, yes they were nice but when it came to peeling them off, it was not like as advertised, the rubber separated from the adhesive. I called tech spec and they rwcused to replace them under warranty.

But now the only remaining red color of your DL1000A is a couple of small holes at the side of the tank and the beak.
