If you can't decide on a color, there are clear versions. I have one on my white Yamaha FZ1. If you look closely at the 1st pic, you can see it. Obviously I like the fact that it doesn't obstruct my red stripe.
The second pic, you can see the cool

The second pic, you can see the cool graphic example on my yellow/black Honda CBR1000RR.
Brand names such as PROGRIP, and motografix are popular.

I used a Progrip tank pad, but because the 125 has those grooves in the tank I tried to follow the lines and ended up putting it too high... Might peel it off, but it's just for looks anyway, I sit far enough back on the seat that I never really come

The one above was great it has a gel like feel that molds to the curves. All you have to do is heat it up with a hair dryer and press on!

Thanks! This is exactly what I have been looking for. I just had my 916 completely paint corrected, so this will help keep it that way.

Hopefully they will have a kit for the 125 soon. It looks like they do a pretty good job of keeping up with new models, so it probably won't be too long.

I'm gunna give the ProGrip 5005 a try. CF should look good over white, and it was on sale at motorcyclesuperstore, $20. I've seen these things positioned all up and down the tank; generally, how close should the base of the pad be to where the front

I'm gunna give the ProGrip 5005 a try. CF should look good over white, and it was on sale at motorcyclesuperstore, $20. I've seen these things positioned all up and down the tank; generally, how close should the base of the pad be to where the front of the seat meets the tank? Since the riding position is so vertical on these bikes, I would assume that the nearer the seat, the better.

Both of those are sick. Love the white accent on the first one, but the carbon looks great too.
