Hey guys, my tank pad completely came off... Is there any kind of glue I can purchase or anything else I can use to glue it back on the tank without damaging the paint?

Thanks

Heavy duty automotive adhesive spray glue.Spray the under side of the tank pad completely.Then apply the tank pad back on and firmly press all areas for a few minutes and that bitch will never come off again.+1

Why would you even recommend a way to do this? lol It's not worth..Dear god they are so cheap and probably cheaper from some places than a can of adhesive. If you can drop a few bucks on this, you shouldn't have a toy like a bike.

Thank you very much!
I was just gonna say to the above posted quote.
Who says this guys tank pad only cost $3? Maybe it cost $20 and they no longer make the tank pad or is simply just hard/a pain in the ass to replace.In that case,reapplying the tank pad with automotive adhesive spray glue is the way to go.Plus,its a part of the challenge to reapply the original tank pad instead of just ordering a new one that comes with the lowest of lowest grade of adhesive as it is.

BMJ,Automotive adhesive spray glue (under $10 for good stuff).Coat it on the under side of the tank pad,apply the tank pad back on,hold firmly for a few mins making sure all areas of the tank pad contacted the tank,let cure,done.And that bitch will never come off again.+1

I'd have to agree with CBRKILLER... The above titled post asked how he would glue his tank pad back on. He wasn't looking for opinions on whether he should buy a new tank pad or not.

Most of us don't like to halfass things. So thats where it comes from.

Halfassing stuff on a bike can lead to your untimely death. Obviously not in this case, but that is just how we are.

Theres no halfass about it.Professional job,using real professional automotive adhesive.Using wood glue,super glue or tape? now thats a halfass job.If he truly loves his tank pad,automotive adhesive glue that bitch back on and never worry about it coming off ever again.

Much love

Automotive adhesive glue shouldnt phase hardened urethane clear.Iv used automotive adhesive glue for tank pads before and taken them off before with the paint still being mint undernear.After using automotive adhesive glue,you can still take it off,but it will NEVER come off on its own.
