Anyone add reflective tape to inside of Givi top case red lens ?

I was wondering if anyone put reflective tape behind the red lens on the back of their Givi top case. I know twisted-throttle sells a kit for $25 but I can pick up the tape myself for cheap. If you have done it what color reflective tape did you use?

I put the tape kit (Twisted Throttle) inside the lenses on my 52 liter. The tape was a white/honeycomb tape.

I didn't do it to my top case, but I did to the two E360 side cases. I used some 3M SOLAS tape. I didn't remove the backing so it was easy to slide in behind the lens - works like a charm. It adds some reflective light, but isn't as bright as reflective tape out in the open.

I bought mine here...

Good luck,

I bought some 3M silver reflective tape on eBay and stuck it to the stock silver-ish non-reflective film GIVI puts there at the factory. I've got V-46.

Did the same to my V46 and E41's. Works well.

SOLAS (Saftey Of Life At Sea) Tape can be purchased at some boat shops. Nothing like it.

On a Shad Case under the lens:


Some over the lens as well:
