Just wondering if you could explain your taping technique please (or maybe a photo?)? I just got me some aerojackets for an 808, haven't yet fitted them but would like to know about this taping method. As I don't understand.
There should be a better description or how to somewhere on this forum but you tape the drive side to the spokes (I use packing tape). Then you go around the perimeter of the cover (half on the cover, half on the wheel) with 3M Super 33 electrical tape. Do not stretch the tape. The other side you use just the electrical tape.
I have used this technique and raced in all conditions including 6 hours of pouring rain and heat and cold. I have also left them on for months at a time in all temperature conditions and never had one come loose. I do wipe the rim and cover with rubbing alcohol before I put the tape on.
