Hi guys, I'm a newb here so please be gentle...

I'm looking for a tank pad for my 2009 Tricolor CBR600rr and wasn't sure what is the right size of tank pad will I need?

I was looking at this one from amazon...

Anyone have any opinions or suggestions?

Black

White

Thanks for all your help!!

I do like what you've done with your bike but I have the tri color model and haven been able to find an OEM tank pad that matches my bike unfortunately.
What places can I search? Any recommendations?

You sent $102 on a tank protector???
Yup..it's a sexy protector. Sorta like the difference between a hooker and an escort. Looked at the progrip print ones at first and they just looked cheap. Id go clear if I was to do aftermarket. It's real carbon not a print.

Honda has just the one piece tank piece for $45 I think.

Unfortunately, the carbon won't match my bike at all. That's why I was thinking about the two I posted. Plus I don't want to spend $102 on it.

I just wanted to get a nice tank pad and a white reflective rim tape on my black rims.

All the ones I've seen is kinda like a pearl white. Kinda creamy. It's the reflective part that causes that to look like that.

This link kinda shows it and tells you it's not white in daylight.

Oh I'm totally okay with pearl white since my tank is actually a pearl white. It's metallic white making it look pearly.

I'm going to have to find either a Canadian place that sells it, or order it off of Amazon.com to my cousin's place in the US and hope he's coming sometime soon....

Just get it on eBay. They'll mail it to you by USPS. You won't get charged taxes or duties.

yeah I thought about that after you posted the initial ebay link.

I found the two things I was looking for on eBay and at a decent price.
So I will order it when I get home tonight (work computer can't access eBay)

Thanks for all the help! Hopefully the Rim Tape installation isn't too much of a hassel. I've heard some people having a really tough time with it.

Just a side thought: Honda East Toledo has that carbon fiber kit for $95. Maybe Paulie can even hook up free shipping, IDK.
