Sit in race position. Your nuts are far from the gas tank.

sometimes my nuts hurt in race position on hard rides or at the track because my leathers are snug in the junk area, and im leaning over so much they get squished against the seat.

i've heard of people wearing cups when they ride.

use your core to keep u farther away from the gas tank, along with the help of just a little leg clamping, its almost effortless. never had problems

they only problems i've had with my nuts is when i ride in the spring time when its still cold.
i rode for over an hour with jeans on, and it was so cold that i could feel my balls tuck into my body hahaha

wear a cup. You can also get something to put on your tank that has some padding. Can't remember the name though.

You shouldn't be hitting the tank anyway. Means you've probably got too much pressure on the bars/wrists which means you've got no tensed core and you're sitting too close. Of course in emergency braking situations it could happen.

Be conscious of the weight on your wrists and hold your upper body up with your core, not arms. You can sit farther back without feeling out of control
