I bought this product to help shield my gas tank from the engine heat when running at low speeds in technical single track riding. Before application my gas would actually boil up into the vent tube. Product worked very well for my needs. My KTM EXCR 530 hasn't overheated in the woods again after application.
The tape is as expected tricky to work with but sticks well as it's applied to the underside of the gas tank.

Very pleased

It works

I use it to keep the gas cooler with an oversized tank (clark) the expansion chamber is only about 1/2 inch from the tank this product does keep the gas cooler. However I remove and empty the tank after every weekend of riding and gas never sits in the tank when it's not being used. The adhesive (as you might expect) is becoming gooy it is still holding up and working properly just maybe a little floaty. I believe this would not be a issue in most other situations.

Seems to work

This product is very thin but seems to work. I used this in conjuction with an exhaust wrap and haven't melted my side panel again. So far so good.

Great product!

Deflects the heat like it's supposed to! Great adhesion to almost any surface.

This is a must

With the way number plates are made or cost cut backs .. Who knows.. You pretty much should just order this when you buy new number plates because all the major plastic manufacturers don't seem to put a heat barrier on the exhaust side anymore or hardly ever this stuff is a very good replacement and holds up very well a little pricey but worth the money..

Easy to apply and effective

This was easy to fit to the inside of my side panel/number plate and thusfar has kept it from melting. :) Great product.

Thin insulation

I bought this to line my lowers to protect it from a close running exhaust pipe. However, I this product is much thinner than I expected, and while it may reflect well, it doesn't insulate well.

Perfect for oversized tank and number plate area

This stuff works great bought an over sized tank for my YZF400 and didn't want to over heat my fuel as well as wanted to replace my number plate heat tape. Well worth the couple bucks for the tape rather then plastics or other heat issues.

A must for oversized tanks

I installed this heat shield on the bottom of an IMS 2.7 gallon tank for my KX450 after noticing the new tank rode very close to the cylinder head/exhaust header. Keeping the fuel cooler not only helps performance, it keeps the fuel pump col so it lasts a long time. The fuel stays noticeably cooler now.

Installation is easy, just clean the bottom surface of the tank with WD40 to get the grease off, then alcohol to get the WD40 off. Peel a little backing off of the heat shield at a time and apply it with your fingers, avoiding any air bubbles. Use a razor blade to trim off the excess. The 24" sheet was more than enough to do my tank, the back of my side number plate (muffler side) and still have extra. Great product!

Seems to work

It was easy to cut and shape. It has been on my tank now for a few months and is still holding.

Great product for the inside of my rear number plate on the exhaust side. The material is light weight, so it forms and cuts really well. I have an aftermarket can, it gets hot, and so far no issues at all with warping the plastic in four track days. One 12x12 sheet covered the entire inside of the plate on my RMZ, had a bit left over too.

Works OK.

Purchased and installed this heat shield after painting bike. Edges dont have much adhesive and will come up. Make sure surface is clean and free of Oil and dust as this will not stick if its not.

Did the Job perfectly

Great and easy to manipulate. I used it for my track bike 07 Suzuki Gsxr 600, and put it on the belly pan of Armour Bodies race body. I ran bike on a stand and check for body temp. stayed cool to the touch even when the thermostat kicked in at 220*

Side note -I have aftermarket headers on as well

Paper thin. It's ok to put over stock or original heat shield.

Heat protection

This is a good replacement for the factory heat protection under the exhaust side number plate. The 12 x 24in sheet was just the right amount for the whole number plate. I almost ordered the 12 x 12in sheet which would not have been enough. Cutting it to fit is easy, just takes a few minutes. I am not sure about the durability yet. The factory stuff didn't last any time when using a power washer. Based on looks and install time I give it 4 stars.

Helps keep plastics near exhaust
from melting. I put it on the whole
underside of the number plate by
the exaust. It forms really well to
uneven surfaces and stays intact.

Keep cool

Great product for keeping parts of your machine cool. New or old this stuff can really help you out. Helps keep your gas from boiling in the tank on long or hot days which increases performance, protects plastics from the heat of the engine and exhaust, and you can just cut and stick it anywhere. I have some on my cannondale quad next to the exhaust and on the bottom of the tank, kx250f tank, and on my Aprilia sxv.

A: The DEI Reflect-A-Cool will work great and has an adhesive back so you will just peel it off and place it on the area of the fuel tank you would like to protect against extreme heat.

A: Will work great! Just make sure to clean the bottom of your tank well! Using a grease and wax remover works great! Can be found at almost any parts store. Used to prep plastic before painting because it will hold oil residue. I did my grizzly and wolverine.
Q: Is this good for protecting fairings?

A: This is an excellent product for protecting fairings. I put a chin fairing on one of my bikes and lined the area of the fairing that's next to the header pipe with this tape. I have not had any issues with discoloration of the paint on the fairing. In fact, after a ride, the fairing area next to the exhaust is not even hot.

can this be used like the cv4 rolls?
Over 8 years ago Location: Townshend, VT
A: It is used like the cv4 adhesive mats, not the header wrap. Dont put it directly on the exhaust pipe.
Q: How does it work?

the pipes on our bike is burning my wifes legs. do you just wrap the pipes with it? And does it crack the pipes?
MotoSport Staff Expert

A: You would use it as a heat barrier. It is used quite often on the bottom of saddlebags above the pipes. I would'nt put it directly on the pipes. You might want to re-locate the passenger pegs higher to avoid the heat from the pipes. Give us a call to discuss the options.
