That's a good idea.
I thought so, and it was thanks to Tekime & chicken_strippin in this other thread:

Tank grips is an excellent idea but you might have a tiny bit of red still peeking out with a pre-cut.
would look sweet on that bike. Actually, snake skins cut down to that triangle shape would be pretty sweet looking too and fully cover it up, give it some character and might even help with some grip
Here's the history of those pads:
[QUOTE=Lagarto;3476233]So here's how it went...
step 1: call TechSpec
step 2: cut a template
step 3: mail template to TechSpec
step 4: pay for the work
step 5: install and enjoy!
They told me "Yes, we do custom cutting. No, we don't have any design specifications, make your own with cardstock or heavier paper." I opted for a manila file folder as the design I needed was over 11 inches long. My design came in at 15.5 x 6 at the widest points. I used a razor knife, straight edge, and the bottom of a quart can to refine the design.
I could have bought sheets and cut them myself, however, they do very nice edge finishing and use a CNC machine for precision, so I don't mind paying extra for that.
