Just put on Rim Tape on my Bike. Original reason I put it on was for safety reasons, but it also looks pretty cool. I got it from Customtaylor33 off of Amazon (if anyone is interested). Let me know what you guys think

Reflective rim tape? It looks great in red since you have a black kawasaki z650, but green would go great with the factory green paint.

The Wheel size is 17 inch. My Bike is all black so chose the red. If you have the green frame then green rim tape is the best way to go.

Got my rim tape in yesterday. Quick question, is one sheet enough for the entire bike. Ordered from the seller you said and sent one sheet of it. Not sure if its enough and will order more. Just don't want to put it on and it not be all of it I need.

Yes, one sheet is enough. I actually did the install of the rim tape this past Saturday and it came out great. If I recall correctly I believe I used 7 or 8 strips per one side of the wheel and when I finished all 4 sides I had 2 left over strips. I only overlayed each strip maybe a 1/4 inch or less.

jpbillings,
I really like that green too! sweet. I would encourage everyone to use the rim tape. It definitely will help with the safety factor. I was riding the other day near the evening and the sun was almost down. I was at a stop light and a car pulled up next to me and the guy rolled down his window. He said "Wow, those wheels really glow! I could see you so well" He went on to say that all motorcycles should have those so everyone would be able to see biker's much easier. I gave him a thumbs up. This just confirmed my belief in the rim tape. The more visible you can be, the better chance that you have of not getting hit.
Ride safe everyone!!

This is what it looks like in the day light. Also a picture during the day (that I had the flash on). Pretty Killer either way.
Thank you for sharing those pics. I was torn on red vs. green tape since I love red and black, but everything I've seen is green. It looks pretty good and I think you just sold me on going red/black :)

Was out last night with a friend. Arrived before her but when we went out to leave it was like... check this out. Pulled out my phone, turned the light on and she was like, thats bright. Then turned on the camera with light and showed her what it did on the phone lol. Basically neon lights.
