When I first bought my S4Rs I tried using some clear vinyl specifically marketed for motorcycle tank protection, just like the tankslapper.biz stuff that I used on my last bike. It came in sheets that I had to cut to fit. It was a royal pita to get it to move around while fitting each piece to the plastic tank. It didn't look all that great and one side blew off during a very hot summer day. Is there anything else available out there? I'd love to see some carbon fiber to fit the leg cups of these Monster tanks.

Might help to wipe down the tank with rubbing alcohol to remove any wax or contaminants first.

I've got the Tankslapper 3M product on my S2R plastic tank and it has never even lifted a bit at the edges. I had the regular Tankslapper material on first and a plastic buckle on a vest I was wearing cut a hole through it. I wrote Tank slapper and they offered to replace it for free or upgrade me to the 3M product for a reduced price. Have had the 3M product on since and am very happy with it.

I like the tank stripe and did not want to hide it with a normal style protector...thus my choice for the Tankslapper.

Thanks for the responses so far. The tech-spec stuff is really good (I have it on my GSX-R 750) but the way the Monster's tank is contoured means that Dean has to make them pretty small and they only protect a very small part of the side of the tank. I guess the tank slapper stuff is once again the only route to go??? There has to be something out there for a tank design that's 13-14 years old???
