    Pre shaped wheel rim stripes?

    Hi Guys & gals, looking to add a bit of styling to my 2015 CR. Considering some pre shaped wheel rim stripes?. Wondered if anyone has managed to find an outlet that can supply something as close as possible to the bikes Candy Arcadian Red?

    Any suggestions or recommendations appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Take a look here, it's where I got mine. They have some red ones, but lord only knows how close they are to the standard red. I'm really not sure you'll spot if it's not quite the same though.

    Thanks for your replies chaps. Was there supposed to be a link in your reply Skids as if so it appears to be missing?

    Please can you re-post it?

    Many thanks

    Doh! My apologies. Thanks for clarifying. Interesting site that Moto Discovery. I may well take a punt on a set.

    Cheers for that.

    Further to my last post, I took Skids suggestion (thanks Skids) & ordered a set of from Moto Discovery. Recently fitted them (bit of a faff  :033:) & thought i'd upload the pics. Probably not everyone's cup of tea but I like them & they are a reasonably good match for the Candy Arcadian red.

    Cheers all. Stay safe.

    They look good.

    They are a bit of a pfaff, especially getting the distancing between them right, but you can't actually tell they're not exactly spaced.

    I'm just wondering whether a set would look good on my 1200, but with light grey wheels and a dark grey bike, I'm not sure what colour would work.
