So I had no tank grips and wanted some. I've had stomp grips before, but they tore up my leathers. Wanted the techspec stuff but they didn't have an 03 shape and wanted 40 quid for a sheet to make my own. I figured if I'm making my own I'll make them out of something cheaper, so went on ebay and found some waterproof non-slip rubber decking/shower room tape, so thought I'd have a go at making some grips.
Step 1 - Get piece of paper, draw shoddy outline:
Step 2 - Get strips of rubber waterproof non-slip tape, stick 2 together with tape
Step 3 - Draw round template
Step 4 - Trial fit paper to bike
Step 5 - Mask round paper. This is the outline to show where the grip will go. Black lines in middle will help line up each strip.
Step 6 - Ready to apply
Step 7 - Trial fit the real thing
Step 8 - Split tape into strips again
And done! Sorta matches the seat too!
Total cost = 6 quid and some masking tape.
