    On the bike? fuck no, keep it servicable, simple. Split loom and leccy tape. Cloth tape in the elements isn't so baller. Great in a car, bike I imagine it'd get wet and shit.

      Just use some high quality wire so you dont need to wrap it. If it needs to be wrapped to stop it being chewed up by your foot or whatever, its not mounted in the correct spot.

          Brilliant.

          That seems to be the business. Annoying they only do a 12 pack.

            Fuck off out of my thread cunt. I've used more Raychem shrinks and Tefzel than you've used house wiring and sticky tape.

              I've used the tape in the original post and rate it. Purpose built and doesn't leave much adhesive behind if it needs to be removed for loom mods. Having said that, the last few looms I've done have been OEM style split conduit with taped junctions. Develop a methodology for taping junctions so that each junction looks/functions the same. Split conduit is so easy to work with when building/modding the loom. I keep a large bag of split conduit of all sizes and lengths that have been salvaged over the years as well as a few rolls of the common sizes.

                  Does anyone have any pictures of a braided sleeve loom, particularly the break outs and how they're achieved neatly?

                      Nitto do a loom wrapping tape, thinner and a lot less sticky.

                          Tim I was in Bunnings today looks like they have switched over to Nitto now.

                            If your ever stuck with shitty insulation tape or just doing a temp wrap, try the following.

                            Loom wires together in straight lengths, flip insulation tape upside down (sticky side up) and start wrapping one finger length from the end terminating. Continue to the other end just short, flip tape correct way (don't cut) and continue to the end then work back to the beginning.

                            100% is insulated, 1% or less is sticky and loom is nice and bound tightly.

                                Why not use just the 3M 1610? $14 for a 10 pack or what ever it is.
