Door edge molding for the tank

you know how kawasaki tanks have than nasty crimped or welded edge look all the way around the bottom (right next to the frame. chrome door edge molding fits perfectly around the bottom of tank and gives it a cleaner TRICK look!!

did that a while back on the gixxer and it does clean up the tank a whole lot. So far no problems with it scratching or peeling off and it has been about 4 months.

It looks really tight!!!! I put this edging that is chrome look with black trim on it. Everyone who sees it, likes it a lot. Probably one of the cheapest mods you can do to a bike and really make it stand out.

Yep, they sell it in kits or by the roll at your local auto parts store. It comes in black or chrome but I haven't decided on which to go with as my bike is Blue/White. Chrome is too bling-bling especially w/o a polished frame and the black stands out too much on my white tank so I'll have to pick ups a little of both to try out. Good Luck
