get the rubber netting style stuff and put it under the tailpack with over hang on the sides where the bungies are against the bodywork. The bungies will still rub through the tape/clear plastic.
this stuff or similar: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Motorcycle...item45ff8d9e57

Problem with the rubber mesh is if you get any grit in there eg, riding through rain on muddy roads, the rubber holds it and it will also eat through your paintwork pretty effectively. Best bet is both rubber mat and tape (tape under rubber) but depends how precious you are about the paintwork.

I did 1500 miles in bad weather through France with the sellotape method and suffered no damage or rub through at all.
