$20 to tape your headlights? I see why all their products are for ducatis. Gotta look good for the track day photographer.

Great idea... the hassle is putting the conventional tape on. I tried doing it but quickly said fuck it it's too much hassle and nor mandated by the providers I do trackdays with

Actually that's pretty cool. My Gen 1 is track only and I could put that on and leave it on for all the track day's I like it.

Some people can afford paying $20 for good looks.

There's no market for it, there's just plenty of internet for silly things!

Honestly there have been few times I would have paid it. Doesnt make you any faster or better but Im just not the kind of person that can slap patches of duct tape all over the front and contend with getting all the goo off of my pristine street bike. I usually took my time and taped it neatly with painters tape. That was typically at least a 45 minute job. Now if it happened to be a particularly humid day chances are in the 2.5 hour drive to the track some would come off and I would have to re tape. There are days the 20 spot for saving time and effort would have been an no brainer.
