MotoReflective: Pre-Cut Reflective Kits for Your Saddlebags and Trunks

Thousands of you already now us as MotoEquip.com, and have our products on your bikes. We’ve been making the pre-cut Reflective Kits for motorcycles for about 15 years. Up until now, it’s been a part-time gig, because we had regular jobs, too. Now that we’ve retired, we’ve made this a full-time job, with growth plans, an expanding product line, more kits for more brands, and a new name.

We’re now MOTOREFLECTIVE.COM, although the old MotoEquip.com website still works and both sites will run concurrently for a year or two. Our new name simply does a better job of describing what we make. We design, cut and sell Reflective Kits for Motorcycles. We use only the highest quality 7-Year/7-Mil 3M Reflective Vinyl for our black and silver reflective products. And everything we sell is 100% Made In The USA, from raw materials, to design, to the labor. We’re proud of that.

Up until now, it’s been mostly BMW’s . . . GS’s and GSAdv’s, RT’s, and K12/13/16’s.

Oilheads
Hexheads
Camheads
Wetheads
Brickheads
Slantheads
And some for the F700/F800 Twins.

Saddlebag Kits
Trunk Kits
and some Helmet Kits

We’ll soon be working on developing kits for other brands, so if you’re on a KTM, a Tiger or Trophy, or even a KLR with popular aftermarket panniers, we will eventually get to you and deliver a kit that looks, and fits, perfect. Thanks to all of you who are already our customers, and to the many dealers worldwide who also carry our products.

Below are photos of a couple of our Reflective Kits. The full list, and prices, can be seen at now MOTOREFLECTIVE.COM . These first kits are for the early Oilhead RT’s, GS’s and the brickhead K bikes. We’ll be showing more of our kits in later posts.

Oh, and if you “Like” MotoReflective on Facebook, we’d appreciate it. Now that this is full-time, we’re just starting to get our toes wet in the social media game, and it would really help.

Thank you.

GIVI is on our to-do list, although someone used one of our RK-99 Reflective Sheet kits years ago, and made their own reflective pieces for their GIVI luggage. Then they claimed that the 3M adhesive just wouldn't stick to the GIVI plastic. I think it was something else, but we'll find out for sure as soon as we can get some GIVI saddlebags and topcases to work with. It's not like they're in stock at every local dealer, so often we have to get cooperation from a manufacturer to loan us some bags so that we can do all the prototyping work that's required to get a precise fit.

For BMW bags and trunks, we've got a couple of local dealers who help us out a lot. And we've just put together an agreement with a local Triumph dealer. But to do GIVI, or Jesse, or other independent luggage brands, we usually have to go straight to the manufacturer or importer.

Still, it's on the horizon because GIVI customers are a BIG market. So as we grow, please keep an eye out for GIVI kits.

Looks great! I'd like a kit for a Ural hack, for the back of the tub and fenders.

Unfortunately, we don't have a kit specifically for the Ural. But we've had many Ural customers over the years who have made their own, using our RK-99 Reflective Sheet Kit, along with something like our RK-22 Checkered Flag Helmet Kit.

The RK-99 Kit comes with two 8x11 sheets of black or silver (your choice) reflective material. Using a ruler and an X-Acto, you can cut 32 rectangular pieces measuring 2 x 2-3/4, for the tub (perimeter, or stagger, or make Tetris shapes, i.e. whatever you like), and then use the Checkered Flag Helmet Kit on the rear fender. Or just use the Reflective Sheet Kit and put 26 or 28 of the pieces on the tub, and then stagger 4 or 6 pieces horizontally at the rear of the fender. Or cut fewer but bigger pieces to place where you need them most. Whichever way you go, you'll create a substantial presence on the road and you will Be Seen a lot more than before!

It did disappear for a bit, Bruin, after we made some edits to it. But we contacted Moderator GB and he's apparently fixed whatever was wrong. It might simply be that, as a new vendor, we have to have our first 10 posts approved. As GB explained to us, this is SOP and is designed to protect against spammers. That's perfectly understandable. Perhaps the edit caused the first post to go back into the approval queue. Anyway, it's fixed now, so Thanks GB.

Here are some more photos, this time of the MOTOREFLECTIVE Kits for the Hexhead and Camhead GS's (2005 - 2012). For GSA riders, we'll be posting pictures of those Reflective Kits shortly. Again, these are 100% Made In The USA.



RK-11: Fits the Vario bags on the R1200GS (2005-2012). $29.95
RK-11 Daytime


RK-11 Illuminated (Nighttime)





RK-11X: Fits the X-pattern embossed on the lids of the Vario Bags for the R1200GS (2005 – 2012). Adds a distinctive look as well as great lateral conspicuity. $29.95
This kit is relatively new and is flying off the shelves. As beautiful as the GS is, that plain old Vario Bag lid is just begging for something other than an almost invisible embossed X. This Reflective Kit fits that X beautifully, leaves space for the "R1200GS" decal that BMW applied to the bags, and just explodes in reflective brilliance when illuminated laterally by vehicle headlights at night.
RK-11X Daytime


RK-11X Illuminated (Nighttime)





RK-12: Fits the R1200GS Vario topcase (2005-2012). $19.95

Thanks for asking. Actually, I used to have a 650 V-strom with 1550 cases (great little bike and those cases are plenty tough), and I used our RK-99 Reflective Sheet Kit (contains two 8x11 sheets of reflective vinyl) as well as one of our RK-22 Checkered Flag Helmet Kits. The RK-99 was cut to fill the inside half of each 1550 case (the rear-facing part). There isn't any really usable room on the rear-facing part of the lids, so I used the rest of the RK-99 Sheet Kit to fill in between the vertical ribs on the lids, giving me some lateral visibility. Then I added the Checkered Flag Helmet strips to the upper edge of the lids, just to give it some flair.

Specifically, though, a kit for the 1550's is in the plans. But it will be pretty much as described above.

For the ultimate in Sport Touring, there's BMW's new R1200RTW, which has been winning all of the shootouts lately, and the incredible BMW K1600GT and GTL, which are on-road ballistic missiles dressed in comfortable clothes. Interestingly, both of these bikes have the same rear and side facia on their saddlebags and trunks. So both of them accept our RK-18 and RK-19 Reflective Kits. Here are a couple of photos.

Next up, F800GS's with the BMW Adventure Bags and Trunk, plus Reflective Kits for Hexhead and Camhead R1200GS Adventures.



RK-18: Fits the K1600GT/GTL saddlebags as well as the saddlebags of the water-cooled R1200RTW. Kit includes rear AND side reflective pieces. $29.95
RK-18 Daytime


RK-18 Illuminated (Nighttime)





RK-19: Fits the K1600GTL topcase as well as the topcase of the water-cooled R1200RTW. Kit includes rear AND side reflective pieces. $29.95
RK-19 Daytime


RK-19 Illuminated (Nighttime)

If you're an owner of one of the new R1200GSW's, we haven't forgotten you. Not only is there a Reflective Kit for the rear of your BMW Vario Bags, and one for the Vario Top Case, but we've also got one that fits the embossed "X" on the bag lids. And let me tell you, getting it to fit right, with all of the angles and dips that are pressed into that X, was enough to give a mathematician a headache. But we got it figured out, and it fits beautifully.

Check out all of these kits below. And next time, we'll talk about the 1200GSW Adventure!



RK-36: Fits the rear of the BMW Vario Saddlebags for the R1200GSW (2013+). $29.95
RK-36 Daytime


RK-36 Illuminated (Nighttime)





RK-36X: Fits the X-pattern embossed on the lids of the Vario Bags for the R1200GSW (2013+). Adds a distinctive style as well as excellent lateral conspicuity. $29.95
RK-36X Daytime


RK-36X Illuminated (Nighttime)





RK-37: Fits the BMW Vario topcase for the R1200GSW (2013+). $24.95
RK-37 Daytime


RK-37 Illuminated (Nighttime)
