Protector tape?

I'm thinking that my thigh will be rubbing the panels below the tank. Has anyone use a clear plastic tape for this? I'm thinking of something like heli tape.

I don't want to use a patch kit that's a different colour.

There are lots of companies making clear paint protection film. I went with R&G Stickers instead for protection and grip.

I ordered my R&G protection (like hawaiianbrian has) and I asked about the clear ones. They said that will turned into yellow after a while, the material will aged and change color.

I suppose it depends on the tape. I've been using heli tape on my mountain bike frames for years and never seen it go yellow.

I'll look into the R&G stuff anyway. Thanks
