I have no issue with Revzilla, I spend money with them all the time. However I didnt bother calling them on this after reading the return policy. To be honest, its been a few days and ive cooled off about it. It's 80 dollars down the drain. Meh. Maybe I will call TechSpec later on down the road. (I did get a over the moon deal on a new Dainese suit today)

I dont think it should be another distrubtors responsibility to take up the slack and hassle.

It did take a combination of alcohol wipes, hair dryer, and some quick hold rubber clamps but for the most part seems to be holding fine now.

I returned the Techspec kit and ordered stomp grip clear for my matte black 1199.
Thanks from RRnold

Marmoot. I tried all of that both times and nothing. I even tried using a clay bar to and wax remover then rubbing alcohol with heat dryer method and nothing. the 2 tank panels and the center tank piece came off at the edges and flapped around.

When I get my bike back from the dealer I will be putting on my stomp grips.

Yeah, stompgrip is nice and very good. Also, i never prep the surface at all with stompgrip. Just make sure it's clean. Mine still sticks like mad even after 1.5 years of almost-weekly track abuse.
Thanks from b9009b

I guess I am lucky. I just wiped the tank and applied tech spec 18 months ago and they still stick like new.

No experience with TechSpec on Ducs, but on my 1000rr, they have been awesome.

On my s1000rr they stuck great for almost 2 years, had the right side fail and they sent me a replacement and it stuck fine.

I think they should redesign the tank pads similar to the 848/1098/1198 series where they are more "fitted" with less curves and less material.
