I have the Tech Spec pads but the carbon corner covers sounds like a great idea. I was looking at getting the bundle through RD. thanks for the advice!

+1 on the traction pads.

Personal preference but I hate the Stomp Grips. Got them on my D6 track bike.

Put some tech specs on my road D675 and love them. Will be buying some for the track bike too.

I preferred the more aggressive nature of the stomps but they can hack into your leathers over time.

I had them on the road tank and the tech spec on the track tank. I would have preferred them the other way round.

The stomps do lift after a while. I ended up putting them back on with silastic silicone on the D6 years ago. The tech spec are meant to be able to be heated and lifted off, then reused several times - though I've never tested it.

You should pull the relay or connections behind the lights so they don't operate as the heat they generate will melt whatever tape you use making it hard to get off.

Plumbers tape is probably best as gaffa/cloth tape has a thick glue residue that can be hard to remove.
