I use these large (6x8 inch) cell phone sticky gel dashboard pads that I found on Amazon for around $ 8 each. They stick right onto the tank, cause no damage to the paint and adhere firmly to the tank.

I used the Snakeskin by Tech Spec.
I think it was around $80 delivered to my door.
They are awesome and can be taken off and reapplied.

Why the F do you need knee grip pads? -- just squeeze them, man! :biggrinjester:

Most cycle shops have Knee grip pads that come in different colors and textures. They even had clear so the color of your bike showed through.
When I was looking I think they were $14 a set

Maybe 10 years ago a friend turned me onto 3M window sign vinyl. Its static cling application and the same stuff the preformed kits are cut from.

I've used it on a couple of track day bikes where speeds over 150 mph are routine. Lap after lap, it stays put and protects. Downside is you have to cut to fit. Do not run with the scissors ;>)

You may find a local sign printing shop willing to sell you some off his roll. My friend bought his from amazon or ebay. The matt black fuel tank on my 650 is vulnerable and scarred. I may take my own advice someday.

If you feel your Strom needs improved knee grip (I do not), Stomp Grip is pretty hard to beat. Should look weird enough on a Strom too.

I use 3 (one on either side of the tank and then a rectangular one at the tank/seat junction) and have already replaced one. Keep the backing for use as a template, and you are golden for a long time at that price. Glad to be of limited assistance...
