Ducati performance tank protector install help

Hey all, dumb question maybe but does anyone have instructions for installing the Ducati performance tank protector for the v4? It came with what *looks* like a piece of black cardboard in the shape of a template and a alcohol wipe and that's it...no real instructions. Sorry if it's a stupid question... Just got my V4 today and don't wanna ride it till I know I won't scratch the tank to hell.

Tank pad has been on backorder for me for a month now. Every day on the bike with my leather, as well as my mesh jacket. No scratches.

Piece of cardboard allows you to line up the distance from the gas tank cap. Place it there and the top piece of the pad will line up with the bottom of that template.

Clean the tank with the wipe provided.
Transfer the pad pieces to the provided clear adhesive tape , that way they won’t shift and the pattern will be exact. Peel it off from the original backing plate and stick it to the tank. Pay particular attention to be in the middle. I actually figured this out after the fact and had to move the piece a couple of times until I get it perfect. The bottom piece should end up at a credit card distance from the seat when credit car is placed on the seat right next to the tank in a horizontal orientation.

I agree the instructions should have been included. But it seems to be the norm with the accessories from Ducati to make you pay for service... the only piece of accessories that came with the instructions was a carbon battery/tank cover. But that one is mega simple.

Good luck
Thanks from cavlino and tiki240
