    If it's a new bike surely this should be dealt with under warranty?

    I bought my tank pads off eBay 2nd hand although as new, stiction obviously gone off though so I got 3m double sided tape from the Craft shop, works a treat, no sign of either of them coming off or lifting.

    I think some people don't realise they're an add on. I bought some, within week 1 both were half off. I retried carefully , they've been ok for about a month now. I thought i'd maybe put em on when the temp' didn't match or left an air bubble in the middle .

    Same problem here! Fitted them carefully and used the alcohol wipe to clean the tank first. Right side keeps peeling off. Got a warranty claim in so let's see what happens.

    That'll teach em to put em on in the factory instead of squeezing another 55 out of us. Mines matt black so my knees will shine it up without them
