Those are Gripster 'tank' pads from techspec-usa.

They don't have precut pads for the 6 or 8GS, but they sell 7.5x13" sheets (2/pkg, $37) so you can make your own.
You can bevel the edges with a grinder or sander so they look almost 'factory'.

I ordered the snakeskin style and had them to throw in one sheet with the sportbike adhesive (removable)
and one with MX adhesive (stronger) to try on my dirtbike IMS tank.

They help grip the bike with your knees seated or standing and should help protect the paint as well.
