I didn't do anything artistic or special on this. I simply followed lines on the bike that would best reflect light back to the headlights of another vehicle.

Re: Stock Appearance

Or another variant...they don't make a reflective color that matches the 2007 Executive , so I used black...TapeWorks RimStealth (this was before I discovered StreetGlo, sorry dude!) and the larger patches are commercial-grade reflective graphics material. The front forks use 3M Solex, the rear fender uses Reflexite...these don't blend well, but that wasn't the point...Solex and Reflexite are ultra-relfective.

Front 3/4 View
Rear 3/4 View
Side View
Daytime View of Solex on Forks
Rear Fender Reflexite (you can also see the black relective pinstripe on fender)
Daytime View of Hump Reflectives

Now that I've discovered this 3M commercial grade stuff, and realized the little black pinstripes are not as visible as the camera would have you think, I'd remove the pinstripes and just stick to large patches if I were to do it all over again.

I've discovered that you don't get much conspicuity in the tape until you get to at least 1/2" wide stripes (i.e. "double pinstripe width). 1/4" just isn't enough to draw attention to itself. The reason is that our reflectives don't function in a vacuum...it's not enough to be reflective, it's got to be reflective enough in a crowd of cars, street objects, and other visual clutter.

Re: Stock Appearance

I would have to agree.I did'nt buy the burgman to be the coolest guy in town. I bought it for fuel economy, all the neat asseccories, and the most comfortable ride in town.

Re: Stock Appearance

You might want to check with them first before ordering them. I get the feeling that they are made for larger wheels.

I cut 1-1.5 inch strips of white reflective tape and put them on the rim. When stopped, they look like individual strips. Once you get moving just a few mph, the eye/mind fills in the gap and they look like a full circle.

Streetglo has a BurgmanUSA discount. The details are in the "Burgman USA Coupons and Discounts" section of the forum. I just ordered some new reflective tape on Friday afternoon and it shipped today...for free. Their prices also are the same as they were about 3 years ago.

[attachment=0:1k5c6lv9]burgman night 003 compressed.jpg[/attachment:1k5c6lv9]I used the street glo red reflective to change the appearance of my bland 05 650 so it would not look like the others, it came out looking a little more like a sport bike then i wanted but it does bring atttention to t day and night. I was asked if i got a new bike by one person.

Re: Stock Appearance

Your 650 looks great! I just purchased a 400 that is about the same color. What size stripes did you purchase? Is it just standard red or some other color description? Thanks!

+1 on wanting to know the size. I am thinking of doing the same, torn between blue and super black. I like the blue look better during the day but I like the white reflectivity of the super black at night. I emailed streetglow about getting some samples to see how they look in person. Have not heard back yet.
