V with StompGrips

Hi,

Wondered how the V would be with this?
Stompgrips are like traction pads on the tank and maybe tank cowling.

Why, are you having trouble staying on the V?

Nope, just to cover the stratches on my tank and looks nicer than normal tank protectors.

Shucks, didn't see this thread.
The review on MCN (linked in the
new thread I just started) seems
to indicate they liked the other ones
(from TechSpec) better. Check it out...

I learned knee-gripping the tank many
years ago for increased control. Many
older bikes came with knee pads.
They protect the tank and allow better
control during braking, acceleration
and other maneuvering. Second nature
with me as the Vs. lends itself well
to this. (Also referenced in Proficient
Motorcycling).

Do they make them for the Vs, or is there a generic kit?

I am not sure if they have them for Vs, they did have one for 650R.
You can always get generic and cut one as you like.

Read the MCN review posted on the other thread
http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ead.php?t=2762
Note that the generic kit is about $10 cheaper.
