Hammergrips! Nice, affordable tank grips

Finally got around to putting grippy stuff on my tank. I was checking out the name brand stuff but I could never catch it for a decent price. I remembered this guy from when I had an SV1000 (briefly) and reached out to him.

Turns out, he has a pattern for the FZ1 and they fit and feel great on the bike. Material is like a neoprene rubber and they're about half the cost of the name brand stuff.

Just wanted to spread the word if you're looking for tank grips!

It looks like a very fine sandpaper damn near. I rode with a guy at track-day that had something like that... It was like techspec on steroids, but he said it was too grippy. It'd catch his leathers on transitions and he'd get hung up on it.

I use Tech Spec. I'm curious as to how long the neoprene will last.

He's been selling these on the SVRider forum for several years now, I don't recall seeing anything negative.

Looks similar to what we use on our sailing boats for grip. If it is the same, I have had it on the boat for 5+ years with no issues.

I find that when I wear low-cut shorts, my thighs stick just fine to the tank!

To shave or not to shave that is the question.

The leg hairs act as velcro, it's very effective!
