Default What tank protector do you use on your K1200S??

I'm hoping to get a tank pad or protector before my bike arrives, anyone have a recommendation?

Possibly edging on the side of a clear film at the moment.

Bike is a White Aluminium K1200S.

Cheers.

Transparent self sticking foil. Totally invisible, and works like a charm. I have it on my tank, my sidecases.

Is there a brand or supplier you can push me towards? I've seen a couple of pre-cut kits for the K12S.

First off the one from MV Motorrad - I've ordered from them previously - fast delivery to the UK...

http://www.mv-motorrad.de/lshop,showdet ... .0019,.htm


I know you want clear...but also worth looking at the techspec - I have them on my bike...they offer grip as well as protection.

http://www.techspec-usa.com/products/gs_bmw.html

Also the kit from Nippy Norm

Looking at the MV Motorrad product, do you know if the shape of the panels is similar to that of the Nippy Normans item? I want something that offers max protection.

Which finish did you go for on the Tech Spec item?

Don't know the brand, just put it for fancy as after three years the painting is still like new

What do you guys think of the carbon fibre protectors that Wiz (Bikers Oracle etc) had made up by the F1 carbon guy? Know the ones I mean? He has a few left at 45 pounds.

Here it is on a bike...

I'm quite liking K12Rider's snake skin item too.
