There is a Suzuki tank Cover which looks good that i would like to have. Is there anyone out there whom have one installed? Would like to know the installation process if possible. Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the detailed descriptions to amvince.:bigthumbsup:It is a simple installaion. The instructions come with the cover. The steps are as follows. The cover has elastic bands and plastic clips. You can remove the chrome housing on the tank if you want but you shouldn't have to. It would make it a little easier to stretch over the tank if you remove the housing. All you have to do is remove the the bolt that holds the housing on ( If you are leaving the housing on do this after you stretch the cover over it. . You stretch the bands over the front of the tank and pull the whole cover onto the tank to the back of the tank. Place the cover in place and place the plastic clips under the tank lip. The front part of the cover goes under the housing and replace the bolt. That is it.
Now that could pose a problem. The reason i am thinking of the tank cover is that i am using a magnetic tank bag. As I am afraid that i will scratch it, I am putting a piece of towel to protect it but it is a hassle as it keeps falling off every time I remove the bag.The cover will scratch your paint after a while. Use with caution. I've had one on my tank now for a few years and it WILL scratch the soft paint. When I finally do replace it, I'll be putting 3M paint protective film under it to protect the areas where it touches the paint.
Note: The problem is not the cover but more the contaminants that get under it just from normal riding. If you rub something with your finger, eventually it will cause a spot in the paint. Same issue with pollen, dirt, etc etc
