Our Yamaha R1 FuelCel cuts weight by more than 55%, up to 7.75 lb lighter than the stock unit it replaces. Re-designed so that you can lie down for more aerodynamic efficiency without bruising your chest! We have re-contoured the filler cap area, making it much more comfortable for you to lie down on your R1. The new Yamaha R1 FuelCel includes the cosmetic side panel shape adding to the total fuel volume. We have also relocated the petcock to the left side where it is accessible to the rider! Just bolt on all your stock components and you’re ready to go.
This tank ships with our Standard Cap, if you’d like a Drybreak, click here to add it to your order.
Due to the reduced weight, the acceleration increased and it greatly reduces the bikes polar-movement allowing you to turn in faster than before, you can really feel the difference! This is due to ETI’s efficient use of Kevlar and Epoxy in its construction. This also eliminates tank warping due to ethanol blended fuels!! The stock brackets and rubber inserts are used from your old steel tank. Finish sanded down to 150 grit, we apply a two-part sanding primer making your FuelCel the nicest component you have ever painted. Lock option and or Drybreaks available at an additional cost.

Painting & Mounting Instructions
CONFIRMING THE TANK PRIOR TO PAINTING. The outer surface of the tank is sprayed with a thick coating of catalyzed polyester primer. This buff tan color must not be sanded through! Underneath this tan layer is a white epoxy primer, DO NOT sand through this white primer as the structural matrix is just below it. Sanding through the white primer can cause leaks to occur, especially around the bottom edges of the tank.
If your tank has a place for your pump to bolt on (I.E. 1098, GSXR, 749-999, etc) DO NOT PAINT OR PRIMER THE GRAY PRIMER AREAS. This can cause the pump to not seal. These areas are precision molded within thousandths of an inch and must be maintained as is, also DO NOT SCRATCH these surfaces.
Install all necessary plumbing and hardware before mounting on the bike, then fuel it to capacity and run at least half of it through by running the engine BEFORE PAINTING THE TANK.
Following the above procedure first will greatly help avoid any costly re-painting repair.
All tanks come with a set of instructions, please read them in full to avoid costly mistakes.
