    As in mats that go on the floor? Shocked





    I mean are they retrofit, or standard issue?

    Rubber floor mats on scooters have a terrible habit of trapping water and rotting your floor pan, so if you must, I'd use self tapping screws thru holes drilled in the floor and smear a load of 2 stroke/oil under the mats periodically.

    I suggested maybe clear silicone all around the edges to help keep the water out.
    It would be easily removable to with little or no damage to paintwork ect...

    but personally, fit grip tape Smile
