3M reflective tape on Givi

As much as I love my Givi E45, it never looked finished. I ordered some red 1" 3M Scotchlite reflective tape, hoping to enhance the appearance of the case and increase my visibility at night.
I was hoping to run the tape all the way around the back of the case, but the curves near the latch made that impossible. Here are the results.





Not bad for $4 in product.

Red DL650K6- Givi E21, NEP CC-4, GPS, OE hand guards, Madstad, Scorpion slip-on, Genmar risers, SW centerstand.

06 Pearl White VFR- sold, missed.

That looks really good, almost stock! I am getting my new Givi top case next week, I may consider doing that mod! :wink: Does anyone know if that tape can be bought at a retail store?

Thanks,

Check your local graghics shops. They may sell you a sheet of it you could cut down for dirt cheap. I got a 2'x2' sheet for $5.
