Inseam scratching tank

Anyone else having this issue? Im a big guy, but short legs, I have a 30" inseam. My pants are scratching my tank already pretty bad, and Ive only had the bike on the road 10 days. What is anyone using to protect the tank up against the seat? Ive tried Meguires Scratch X, but it didnt do much to help. Each time after riding I scratch X, but my pants are doing a number on the tank already.

3M makes a protective film that's reported to be virtually invisible. Can't speak for it myself, but some forum members have reported varying degrees of satisfaction.

A similar solution:

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Somebody caught my coverup story . Never heard of that clear film. Seems like a great idea, but I just dont want something noticable. Then again, if it will help the paint, Im all for it.

Oh, no, here we go - another hijacked thread. Every time Refi starts talking about his balls, bad things happen.

Used this on my Sportster. Worked great.

I'd get it for the Glide but would stand out with the blk denim.

Ride Safe.

Wow, that stuff will cost $200 just for the front of the faring. Maybe if I had a custom paint job...

I just had someone else also tell me about this stuff. I purchased the pieces needed for the rear of both sides of the tank. A little pricey, but Im ok with spending the money to protect the paint. I spend tons of time keeping my stuff spotless, so me and scratches, do mix too well. Thanks for the link.
