Squirmy's 2020 Cb650r


General Info

First "big bike" :) Thanks to lockdown happening a couple weeks after my purchase, i had the next 2 months of torture of only being able to look at my bike and not riding it. So i kept busy by doing a few bits to it........and maybe cleaned it more than i needed to :) Still deciding on the suspension upgrade as not sure bike is worth it or if i'm planning on keeping it for longer than the 2 years i will have it due to A2 license restrictions as i might want another bike by then xD

Plans / Wishlist

- Custom Seat Cover (yet to choose what material/design)

- Quickshifter cuz why not ;)
- Rizoma "Shape" engine sliders (ordered)
- R&G frame sliders if the rizoma engine sliders dont protect much above the engine area. I want it protected but dont really like the look of sliders poking out. :/


Very nice! How do you like the R&G tank grip pads?
Ill be honest mate i haven't really put them to proper use xD I mainly got them to stop any serious scratches if get on the tank (or any scratches at all since gloss black is a pain to keep scratch free). My knees dont rest on the tank unless im giving it some in the corners so i cant comment on grip or feel of them as haven't been on track with it yet to properly try them. But in person they dont look "out of place" like a grip pad just stuck on a tank despite the fact, they are grip pads stuck on a tank xD

If your interested fitting wise, cleaned the tank with some isopropyl alcohol then stuck bottom corner first to match lines of tank with the pad, then just rolled it the rest of the way. I stuck them on when bike was new so it didnt have wax/polish on tank to start with so they are certainly stuck on there, 1500 miles later and been though rain, heatwaves everyday and not a slight chance of any lifting off or coming un-stuck.

Hope that helps :)
