Tricolore with tank grips

Hey All
Does anyone have pictures of a Tricolore with tank grips installed. I have searched for pictures and can't find anything. I see lots of pictures with tank pads installed on the all red or all white bikes, just curious if there is anything that functions and looks good.
Thanks

the tricolore owners are a wimpy lot and tend not to put their bikes on the track, you don't really need tech spec or stomp grip to park in front of starbucks (man am I gonna catch hell for this one!)

FYI, I have em on my red bike and love em they don't look so great the black tech spec looks much better than stomp grip IMHO

Once you start heading to the track, you really won't care how bad or good they look. Function will outweigh your aesthetics. They are a MUST have since the tank is so slippery. I have the clear version Stomp Grips and love them.

Last season there was a Tri at the track. He pipes up on this forum from time to time and is pretty serious track rider...even with the gorgeous paint job. They're out there Zvez, they're just few and far between. But I'd agree the majority are Starbuckers, lol.

too true about the tank grip. I did a track day yesterday on my streetfighter (no tank grip) and I've been doing track days on my pani with grips. Wow I was sliding all over the place and not in a good way!

Well I must say what a huge difference with the tank grips installed. No more crushed nuts.
The only issue now is the tech spec won't stay stuck and keep lifting on the edges. I cleaned the tank properly but they won't stay stuck. I even heated the tank and the pad with a heat gun to get them warmed up but no difference. The two small ones on the fairing are fine.
The store is replacing them so I'll see if these ones stay stuck down.
