    Double-sided adhesive for tank knee pads.

    I've had my bike refinished and had to pull off the pads on the sides and rear of the tank. There is a sticky, double-sided film on the knee pads. Anyone know where to get something like that? I would rather not resort to a glue/adhesive unless that was my only option.

    Double-Sided Turning Tape from Lee Valley might work. Put it on in 2 inch strips and trim to fit the shape before revealing the other sticky side.

    Thanks, Ken. Just called them and they have it in stock.
