Our Tanks sliders are designed to reduce the chance of fuel spillage and fire caused by the design of the R6 fuel tank. The R6 tank can impact the ground in a minor crash or lowside, causing the tank to leak fuel, resulting in fire. Many R6s have had minor crashes at the track that have resulted in an entire bike being destroyed by fire. Made from High Impact, Heat Resistant ABS plastic. Easy installation design attached with Auto quality 3M adhesive. A certified tank protector will be required by most race organizations for 2008. Removal not necessary for tank removal. The “after” pictures below are after a 120mph crash at Road Atlanta. Scuffing on tank is from gravel in the runoff area. Tank was not dented by asphalt and there are no scuffs or scratches from the asphalt.
