Tank Foam is a special open-cell sponge-like material which only reduces the tanks volume by 3-4 percent. Tank Foam absorbs some impact energy and most importantly, CONTROLS FUEL SLOSHING.
Fuel sloshing in a motorcycle is a significant factor in upsetting the center of gravity due to the violent positive and negative accelerations that are imposed during racing. This sloshing acts like a heavy uncontrolled weight that has to be compensated by your suspension system, something like a liquid monkey constantly playing havoc with your handling. With a half tank of fuel, (common for most sprint races assume 3 gallons), that's 18.6 pounds slamming into the front of the tank when brakes are applied. Then slamming to the side after you have established your lean angle in the corners. Then slamming to the back of the tank when you hit the gas. But due to physics, that 18.6lb can act more like 60lb for that initial moment the fuel sloshes to a stop at the ends of the tank!
Riders report that installing Tank Foam gives the impression that they had their suspension done, even to the point of having to adjust their riding style because they were always making minor adjustments compensating for this fuel slosh. Tank Foam will enable you to ride more precise lines on the track thereby decreasing lap times.
