Hey in regard to bagster covers.. I did a rally on the weekend for the 1st time with this tank cover on. Weather was very warm. I found the fuel in the tank was way way hot. When I opened the petrol cap to refuel, fuel vapour literally blasted out.
When I got home I opened the cap for the same thing to happen with at least ˝ a tank full. So I closed the cap for 10 seconds, opened it and so on. Each time pressure had built up. Looked in side tank ( using a match of course ,,haha) and saw the fuel moving about quite rapidly. The ignition was off .. was bloody hot in there, was like the fuel was boiling.
My point is has anyone discovered that the tank cover does not allow heat to dissipate away. The tank itself was hot as ****. Never had that before..
