GIVI V35 reflectors (not really)

I did finally get my Givi V35s and got them mounted up. I must say a very easy install as well. I read some of the posts regarding the clear red pieces of plastic and how they aren't reflectors and some folks using some "mirror" type materials to make them reflector like and wanted to share what I did. I went to Walmart and pusrchased some wide white reflective tape, allied that to the existing white cards that were there and now the reflect. I came home late the other night with the car and when the headlights hit the bags they definately reflect and even somewhat better than the OEM tail reflector.
Cost me all of about $5.00.

I never met anyone that knows I don't like them.....

That's cool. I've heard of some people using 3M SOLAS reflector tape. Is it easy to get the red plastic on and off?

it comes off when you take the panel off that some folks paint red. The panel os held in my small screws from the inside and then the red clear palstic piece will come out, the panel holds it in.

I ordered the LEDs for the Givi V35 cases from http://www.admorelighting.com/index.....php&subpage=9. They should be in later this week. You can also get them from twistedthrottle.com.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Sounds like a challenge to me!

Now I have four!
