Question Black reflective tape

Any feedback on where to buy black reflective tape - the stuff that shines bright white when shined upon? I'm looking for it to be in a 2" roll, not sheets.

Hello Sly,

I found a roll at a local fire safety house. It was relatively expensive.

Good luck.

Sly, you were THIIIIIS close!

Sly, did you look at the swing arm on MyStrom's DL1000?

He has exactly the tape you enquired about. Most of the time it looks black, but when bright light shines on it, it reflects bright white light.

You know where to find him.

Black tape proxemics...

Keith ~

Oh yeah, I saw it on MyStrom's bike - we had a lengthy discussion about it! The next question, then, obviously begs answering - "Why didn't you ask him were he got it?" I think I will plead the 5th on that, because ignorance is no excuse for the law (or so the Romans would have us believe:mrgreen.

With that, I bid you ado, as I hustle to the PM feature herein!

See ya, Keith. Be safe on your upcoming ride to the ride to the... you get it!

BTW, my wife was quite touched (as was I) at the showing of sentiment and respect you exhibit regarding your mother.


tucsonstrom ~

Good idea, thanks. But, as Keith pointed out I had it within my grasp, yet allowed it to slip away (momentarily).

go to ebay motors type in vstrom in the search block and look for reflective rim tape. i think its was $20 for enough pre cut tape to do both sides of each wheel. they have many colors but the black tape is black and at night when light hits it it reflects gold. looks very good.

Thumbs up Tape feedback

Thanks one and all for the links and other valuable info. I'm gonna try to wade through the different sites tonight to see if I can find that pefect match. I did find one site that offered tape in widths from pinstripe to 12", but the night time reflective value was not adequate - it shined a grayish color instead of the bright white I'm looking for.
