Taping off your bike

What do you all use to tape of your bike? Blue painter tape or something else?? Looking for something that will be easy to take off and not mess with the paint or leave residue.

thanks

Blue Scotch brand, do not buy any of the generic equivelent tapes, they don't have good adhessives and will peel at the edges. Make sure you have a completely clean surface for thr tape to bond with.

I use the blue painters tape. 3M brand I think... Sticks well, and peels off with no residue.

Be sure to pull the fuse to your lights too.

Blue Painters tape from 3M. Works well and comes off with little to no residue.

Yeah the heat from your lights will make a gooey mess. You can just pull the plugs on the lights if you prefer.
