They are kinda small, but a lot better than big and ugly! How do they look with a flash?

well i shined my flashlight on them and they lit up decently
plus i am not really worried about someone seeing them
if they cant see my headlights the reflectors wont do crap
also why i want the hid's

Blue reflectors are probably more illegal than no reflectors haha :D

Your rim tape install looks clean, which kit is it?

I consider reflectors more useful for vehicles not running into the bike when it is parked at night anyways.

I guess it all depends on the area.. Cops around here get pissed about anything blue or red.

That cycle gear rim tape always rips on me.. I guess I need to go slower haha

Certain colors cannot be used, etc. I'd check with the local laws and any places you plan to travel. "I'm not from here" usually doesn't work =\

I think red can only be used on the rear of the bike here in VA and it also much be at a certain height.

yea guess i shouldnt say red in the case of a reflector since they come that way haha.. But red lights = busted..

I personally think you will be OK though, but you do never know...

I believe red marks the rear and yellow marks the front (hence the way they come on the bike and on vehicles), so lets say if I were to add red reflectors on both front and back of my bike (as I plan to add red accents all over) I am sure I may get in trouble for that somehow for a stupid reason.

Ok here is how i do it

Step 1 : Put bike on stand
Step 2 : Clean the inside rim with alcohol wipe
Step 3 : Go over clean rim with shop cloth to get excess off
Step 4 : Insert rim tape into rim guider thingy lol
Step 5 : Hold down rim tape put one finger behind the guider to smooth it as it rolls
Step 6 : Have someone else spin the wheel down (clockwise) so the tape applies in
upward motion

I an actually make a video of it but it works out great
If you do it correctly you can do all 4 sides (both sides of both wheels) on one roll of tape
