Motorcycle Tank Grips, or Stickers and Pads as they are otherwise known, are seen on race bikes throughout the World. British Superbikes, World Superbikes, MotoAmerica, ASBK and MotoGP bikes nearly all have them, and their riders won’t ride without them. So, what are they, and why should you have Tank Grips on your bike?
What Are Motorcycle Tank Grips?
Tank Grips are self adhesive, usually bespoke cut, pieces of material that go on the tank where your knees sit.
We offer 3 materials for our Tank Grips, Evo, Pro and Silicone because grips are very much a personal choice, and what feels best for one rider, may not suit another. The Evo surface has pronounced domes and offers the highest level of grip. This is our most popular grip for racers, as they are usually hanging right off the bike with their knees and elbows down. The Pro is smoother and offers slightly more movement on the bike. Pro is our most popular grip with road users and riders that take part in the odd track day, as it covers both aggressive and leisurely riding. Silicone is our cushioned material that is best for commuters and touring, creating comfort as well as grip.
Our Pro and Evo materials are available in black or clear, while our Silicone material is charcoal grey.
What do Tank Grips do?
Our Tank Grips are designed to reduce pressure on your shoulders and wrists whilst riding by creating more contact points between yourself and your bike. Without Tank Grips it takes a surprisingly amount of work to keep planted to your bike, as you have to grip harder with your knees and assist with your arms and shoulders. With our Tank Grips, they take the pressure off your body so you don’t have to fight to stay in position and therefore make riding your bike even more enjoyable.
Eazi-Grip Motorcycle Tank Grips also protect your tank from clothing rubbing the paintwork, as well as zippers/buttons scratching your tank, therefore keeping your bike’s resale value and its looks safe.

What if I cannot find Tank Grips for my bike?
Get in touch with us. If it’s a new model it may already be in production. If your bike is an older model we may be able to create them, or our Universal cut-your-own sheets are an option too.
Can Tank Grips help with a pillion rider too?
Sometimes if you ride with a pillion passenger, they can slam into you under braking and force you forwards into the tank. A gentle squeeze on the Tank Grips with your knees helps you manage the weight of a pillion better, avoiding the dreaded ‘nutcracker’ experience.
How are your Tank Grips made?
As we design and manufacture our own Tank Grips we ensure the best fit and quality. Each is bespoke to each motorcycle model and is specifically cut to size. We cut our Tank Grips to order usually the same working day, or day after your order, on our specialist machinery. They are then packaged with instructions, IPA wipe and Eazi-Grip badges to ensure you have everything you need to install them on your bike.
Are they easy to install?
We are only a phone call away or on social media messaging if you have any questions.
