    Tank pad. They all look stupid.

    Trying to find a sticky back foam tank pad that I used WAY back in the dark ages...the 90s.

    It was a nice tombstone (for lack of better description) shape with some holes in it (again, for a lack of better description). Everything I'm finding would just look plain stupid on the Enfield.

    Anyone know the one I'm talking about? Are they still available? I stocked the damn things back then and can't even remember the maker or distributor.

    I could get a sheet of race seat foam, but it'd be easier to open the package, trim a bit for fit and go ride...

    Still available, but now it's called a mouse pad and two sided tape.

    Or what TR said with a mouse pad and some double sided tape.

    they have these always ultra pads which you can attach to the leathers or the tank... they prevent scratch and are super absorbent......

    Do you remember back in the 90s the big rage with tank bags? They even had ones color matched for the bike. I know they are available now but not that flamboyant as back in the day. They even had them for atc's. beat to crap on ebay today they're $300

    Same year ZX7r would be the shit, or beat to shit. Probably no in between.

    No, but it's not the r model. Just a BS line about it being the r engine.

    Yeah? Where's the bodywork, suspension and brakes that go with it?
