below tank thigh grips?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Anyone know of a manufacturer that makes a thigh grips for below the tank? OK, I'm 5'5". my thighs ride perfect on the plastic piece right underneath. Maybe I just need some some material to cut some out. Ideas?

I'm in the same boat. Nobody makes anything I've seen, maybe wrap in skateboard tape.

The other further out idea I had was to laser stipple them but I need to find a extra set to try it on first.

Contact member BigHammer. He can make any shape you want.

You can try Stompgrips. I got them for mine and it came with 4 pieces, 2 for the tank, 2 for below.

Alternatively, you could try rearsets that could get your legs in a higher position. Ideally you'd like to get your legs on the tank but if you control the bike fine as it is then I wouldn't go that route.

I did get a hold of Pete (bighammer). Looks like he's going to supply a pair.

Thanks!!

Post a follow up, curious to see.

I got full tank grips now but only use the bottom half at best haha.

Yep, those ones below are what I'm looking to get. I want them a bit bigger though so if fills entirely that front portion of the panel.
