Anyone know of any decents ones to fit Ninja tanks?
So far I have gone threw 2.
One was a stick on I got off ebay, and that started pealing off ina few weeks.
Other was a magnetic that was always moving around, and finally just fell off.
Like stick on idea better, but it needs to have a decent glue.

Rascal Graphix have a good range, and when you apply them, grab your wifes Hairdryer (Or maybe it's yours, I don't judge :p) and use the heat to make it stick better. Mine has been on for over 2 years, and doesn't even look like lifting.

Tank pad glue.....
I ordered a nice black rubber tank pad....
Came in today......
Kinda checked out the sticky behind the paper....
Same crap they all seem to use.
I know it will last maybe a few weeks like all the rest....
Anyone ever try a spray adhesive that worked?
I used silicone once, and it lasted about 2 weeks.
I do have a spray contact glue, but u need to put it on both parts to work.
I guess i can make a cutout from paper to keep overspray on the tank down, but....

I have never had an issue with the stock glue. If you use a heat source while applying the pad to the tank and keep pressing it down it should stay with no issues. I borrowed the wifes hairdryer for the task and it has been in place for 2+1/2 years.

The one i'm putting on this spring.....as weather warms a bit....
Will be glued on with GE silicone. People on some other forums are saying this works well. Just don't slosh gas on it when filling tank.
Who does that?
