Grip the tank.

Damn I’m having a difficult time gripping the tank with my knees, my leathers just keep slipping. Is there anything beside a “tank bra” (hate the looks) that I can install so I get a little grip with my leathers on the tank.

It's not the bike, it's the rider.

I use something called Stomp grip that works great for me. I think it was only like $20-30 or so and I got it from indysuperbikes.com. Great stuff and really helps when leaned off the bike.

this link just shows it for the zx-6r but it is made for a lot of bikes including the zx-10r. Just give indysuperbikes a call. I believe they are still one of our site sponsors...
