Scotchlite Reflective Stickers
« on: February 04, 2014, 05:09:45 am »
I've been looking for a set of Scotchlite reflective stickers to attach to the black areas of the saddlebags and top case. I had them on my Concours-14 and really liked how car headlights reflected back.

Does anyone know a source?  Although there are precut sizes for the saddlebags on several other bikes, like the Concours, I haven't located any for the Trophy (yet). I know I could buy the reflective material in bulk, but don't have a good way of cutting a pattern so that they also look professional.

You could try and make up a thin cardboard template or use tracing paper.
I'm considering going to the local sign shop and let them make up something for the Trophy.

Don't think the Black 3M I've used would look good on the silver Trophy.

The other option I'm thinking about is using some narrow Class1 reflective tape, silver maybe ???

This is my FJR, can't normally notice the black 3M on the bike in daylight, black on black.

donmoe, I found mine on Ebay, they list them for the Sprint saddlebags, but they are a perfect fit. $18 I believe.

There is a forum member who seems to be able to make almost any kind of sticker or decal.  He seems quite talented. His name is davybull and here is a link to one of his posts

Rear reflectors must be red, unless you want to have trouble with the police
