I always put tech specs on my bikes but they have failed too often on my pani. I'll try stomp grips on this new tank.

Had the same problem with the first attempt. However RevZilla made good and replaced it. Both TechSpec and RevZilla are aware of the issue with Pani's. Must remove seat, clean with lintless prep towel and alcohol. Use a blow dryer heating both pad and tank. Heat activates the adhesive. Mine is now stuck perfectly.
Thanks from sexparty and DoubleD

Thanks for sharing, I was just getting ready to install my kit. I was thinking of stomp grip, but concerned of paint damage in event of removal.

With stomp grip you can remove it. If u have matte paint windex helps it come off easier but its not reusable.

I would go clear. The black stomp grips are too shiny for it

I felt that black grip sticker on a white bike would be too much. Gotta go with the clear stompgrip. I've been using them and never had an issue with them.

Same thing happened to me.

My right knee grip let go mid ride. Ruined a good day of riding. I know the rep here well, so complained and got a new set even though it was my fault really. New set after I applied them properly was perfect.
It comes down to preparation and applying them properly, you can't just stick them on and expect them to stay on, on a bike like the Panigale with all the contours and shapes the bike has. If they came off and they are peeling you just simply didn't apply them properly.

Use mentholated spirits on the adhesive residue until it all comes off. Then clean and prep the area they are going on with metho again and a clean paper towel. Then heat the techspec with a hair dryer adhesive side down until they are hot to touch, should be painful for you fingers to hold onto the rubber, doesn't take long they heat up really quick. Then peel off the plastic and apply the now soft and very pliable techspec in one go. One go only, get it right the first time, if you need to rip it off and correct something then you've failed, throw it out, start again.

Be thorough when applying them and they will go on and never come off. It takes time and is a pain in the ass but once on they are the best product on the market for feedback and grip. EazyGrip suck (ive ripped holes in them while riding) and they don't support their product, Stompgrip is good, looks good too and easy to apply but doesn't offer the same feedback or grip, doesn't come with the knee grips and is harsh on leathers and painful if your wearing Kevlar jeans.
