I never had a problem with traction until early this fall season, with the temp difference and the low humidity I found it difficult to stay put.phukaduc said:if you are really hanging off the RC, this stuff is all but worthless if installed in manufacture suggested location. It really should be in the crotch area (uncomfortable) and a horizontal strip along the tank near the Honda decal for the forarm. But it does give it that race-esque quality. If I had it to do over agian, I wouldnt buy stomp grip...or I would buy the universal and cut strips to place where I contact the bike during cornering.
Sliding forward on the brakes, sliding back on the gas and using my legs way too much when leaned over. This caused premature fatigue and a lack of concentration.
I remember LDH mentioned the stomp pads, I think it was him.
I decided to have my seat reupholstered with a synthetic looking material, it looks like black suede. (kinda like the Bimota seats) It was fine when there's humidity but the stomp grip made an even greater difference. I got the clear tank pads and a large sheet of black and another seat, just incase the tank pads weren't enough I'd try plan "B". So far I haven’t needed to resort to the modified seat plan. Plus I need to be able to move about with little effort with out having to always stand over the saddle to position myself.:twocents
