Custom text ideas for rim tape...

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by TR15tan, Dec 2, 2011.

  1. I have a blue Yamaha YZF-R15. I am thinking of purchasing reflective chrome blue rim tape for the bike. I also have the option of customising the rim tape with font so I may as well take advantage of that too.

    Any ideas? My thoughts so far.. "Girl on top... of bike" or just my name "Kim"... or "Live fast, Die young" although that doesn't sound very nice :p

    Also if anyone has any idea on the appropriate size.. I think it's 17" and 9mm could be okay. I measured the diameter of the wheel but hard to measure with exhaust, and everything else in the way.
  2. How about "if you can read this you must be caught in my spokes"
  3. what about 'FFFFFF damn too late'
  4. "my other bikes a Honda, I'm just slumming on this one"

  5. Just work it out, cast your mind back to year 7 maths.

    Oh and "If you can read this I am running over you"
  6. how about with miniture "My Family" stickers

    ... *hides*

    or "If found please return to Pub"
  7. The rim diameter is on the side of your tyre, but in case it is hard to read:-

    from the ymaha website
    Tyres Front 80 / 90-17
    Tyres Rear 100 / 80-17

    17 being the wheel diameter in inches.

    Steer clear of tram tracks!
