    Default Self-Adhesive teflon tape - where to buy?

    I'm not too sure if this is the right place to post such question, but I'd like to know where do you buy the sticky teflon tape... I tried to Google the obvious places, but no luck. Does eg. NAPA carry this stuff?

    Thanks!

    Are you sure you mean "Teflon" tape. Maybe it exists, but have never heard of it. Maybe self-stick velcro tape? or double-sided tape?

    You can get it but I doubt that it is something easily available locally. Do a Google search for "Adheasive Teflon Tape" and you will find everything that you can imagine.

    See if this works for you from McMaster Carr:

    I think I learned about it from Fred H. a number of years ago.

    Perfect, thanks. Yeah, I've seen it on Fred's site too...
    EDIT: ...and of course eBay. $10 for a roll. What was I thinking

    I buy it from Uline. It works good to stop the chaffing of the alignment tabs on the trunk and saddlebags.

    Sorry, it was Digger that I learned it from. Give credit where credit is due....although I've learned an awful lot from both Fred and Digger them.

    Thanks Fred, much appreciated. Uline has Canadian "version" too, that's cool.
