      I can tell you how I mounted rubber knee pads on my classic Triumph, I
      used a black RTV silicone. Clean the tank area with a paint friendly
      cleaner to get all grease and wax off...then apply a thin bead of
      sealer around the outside edges and a few thin lines in the center
      areas so everything sticks down. Key is to keep it off the edges by
      1/4 inch or so so you dont end up sqeezing a bunch beyond the outside
      edges (you can clean that up VERY carefully once dry if you spots that
      leakout). you don't need alot of sealer! Also I used some masking tape
      to indicate a top and side reference point so when I put it down I had
      a guide to follow.

      Some of the others may have a different method. Mine have been on my
      Trophy for over 2 years now with no signs of comming off or lifting.
