Pirates Lair has been searching for a "worthy" tank grip material for years and now we've found one in TechSpec's Gripster Tank Grips. If you want some serious paint protection for the highly abusive gas tank area of your BMW K1600GT or K1600GTL .. we've got your back.

Also.. by gripping the tank with your legs, a rider can improve the overall control of a motorcycle, control of their body weight, and obtain a more positive seat position. Improved control of the riders body weight will help improve overall handling. Increased control equals a smoother, less fatigued, and more enjoyable ride.

The material , called Snake Skin , is a standard rubber product that is about .125" thick and molded with a low profile diamond grip pattern to help increase the coefficient of friction. It's suited for riders of all skill levels and all conditions but especially for aggressive, higher skilled, track day riders. Snake Skin also uses TechSpec's "Releasable/Reusable adhesive" which means you can peel it off and reuse and not have to worry about all kinds of adhesives being left on your tank.

Each Tech Spec (5) piece tank kit includes R & L Grip Skins and (3) tank protector pieces. And for those wanting to protect your hard bags from flying debris as well as boot scuffs from you and/or your inconsiderate passenger.. we also carry Tech Spec Saddle Box Covers! (pic at right) in the same Snake Skin material.

Note: The center tank protector of the K16 TechSpec Gripster Kit does NOT fit the limited edition K1600GTL Exclusive due to the decorative aluminum-looking trim piece that lies down on the center of the tank.Only the (4) side pieces.
