Oleg232000 Here are the pics as promised. This is the Stompgrip side tank kit, and the center peice kit. Two separate items fyi. Fitment was not too difficult, it didnt turn out perfect, but I am more than satisfied so far.

Kevap I wasn't talking about the center piece, I was talking about the tank side pieces.

Kev...yes the small center tank pad that comes in the kit for the R1 seems custom cut, but it's tiny just covering the base of the tank near the seat. The other centers are generic and the R1 has the nice shaped tank that narrows. I'll call them Monday.

I think Stomp Grip looks better.

Techspec looks like plain thick pieces of rubber stuck on and around the tank.

Oleg232000 Ordered the stomp grip. Waiting to see how much it covers before ordering the center portion. Will post pics once installed.

Thanks everyone

That seems like the best choice. Im just stuck between black or clear? I feel like clear would show the paint more, but the fact that my frame is black (07 red and black r1), the black might actually work better. Opinions?
Clear might get nasty (yellowish) over time.

And no, paint will NOT get damaged when/if you remove them.

Kevap Yes, no paint damage. Might be some adhesive left over but you can remove it with some wd-40 and a bit of effort.

And these can be removed without damaging the paint you think?

Kevap I think this is what you are looking for...

TechSpec - https://techspec-usa.com/yamaha-r1-m...ips-xline.html

Stompgrip - https://www.stompgrip.com/street-bik...10-0006-detail

Check with other retail suppliers for better deals than what you can get straight from the manufacturer.

Thanks
Immortal Graphix did a custom tank pad for me with my own image and text just recently - Custom Tank Pad

I'm sure they can help you out, but they're not chinese ebay cheap. I'm happy though.
