Pro Grip Wheel Tape
Id give this a negative 5 stars if it was an option. Even after reading other reviews stating that this product is difficult to work with, at best, I gave it a try. The tape tore while taking off the clear keeper! After several attempts to get it applied to the wheel with multiple breaks, twist and nicks, I gave up. Save your money and do not buy this product.

I've just recently added a whole pile of parts to my FZ07, and this wheel tape stands out the most of anything. Easy to install. I was concerned about how much a single roll would cover based on some other reviews, but 1 roll did just fine and had a few extra feet left at the end.

Good looks, difficult install.
The tape looks good, not easy to install. Did mine on a warm day. The applicator works fair. unwinding the tape to hard or the tape applied in narrow sections. This was likely my fault. You best get 2 rolls to get it right.

Got this as a gift to put on my girls r3, shipped super fast and everything, but this product was a complete waste. It doesn't stick to the rim for more than 5 minutes, the applicator and directions make no sense whatsoever. I'll never go with progrip on anything other than a tank pad again.
***BEWARE OF THIS GARBAGE!***

This was a total waste of money. The "instructions" are worthless. The "applicator" is worthless. Absolutely no idea how you are supposed to put this stuff on. After 30 minutes of trying to figure it out, I just tossed it in the trash. Lesson learned and $15 wasted.

Applied it to my 2012 CBR1000RR. Worked flawlessly with the applicator.
A lot of people in the reviews complained of botched applications and the tape ripping or skewing. I avoided these issues with
1. I applied the tape on a very hot day, and left the roll of tape in the sun for a few minutes. It became very malleable and easy to work with.
2. I threaded the tape in the applicator and then throughout the procedure I had my thumb pushing the applicator from behind while at the same time applying pressure to the tape as it was coming out of the applicator and onto the wheel rim. This ensured for a proper alignment and adhesion.
There was enough tape to do both wheels on both sides, with about 6 inches leftover which I'll be keeping for touch-ups if needed.
Tape is very reflective and looks amazing!

Good product, could use a better applicator.
I like the way this tape reflects at night. Time will tell how long it'll stay on.

Just recently received this Pro Grip Wheel Tape. I think it's a little difficult to put on with just myself. For my first try, I did alright. I ripped the tape a few times and it wasn't even throughout the rim. I couldn't reach the whole rim without stopping and rolling bike. I recommend 2 people. 1 to hold and roll bike, the other to apply it. Honestly, I still love how it came out. I already bought another pack just to try it out again with someone else. Went out right after riding, received compliments and a lot of looks!! Don't worry about messing up the first time everyone, it peels off fast with a fingernail and it's only $20 for another roll. Good luck!
