DEI’s new motorcycle fuel tank cover (MSRP $69.95) reflects up to 90 percent of the sun’s heat away from the fuel tank to help keep the fuel temperature stable. Just as racers are known to use tire warmers to maintain tire temperatures between race sessions, in motorcycle racing it is equally important to maintain stable fuel temps for maximum horsepower. Hot fuel not only reduces horsepower potential by making combustion less efficient, but it greatly increases fuel pump stress and can cause vapor lock. Most race fuel manufacturers highly recommend keeping fuel cool for maximum performance.
DEI’s slip-on, one-size-fits-all fuel tank cover is made of 2mm felt-backed Mylar material. The cover can be installed or removed in seconds and will not scratch or harm the fuel tank.
