Abstract:
The new titanium fuel tank has been developed to reduce weight of the fuel tank of production motocrossers. While the titanium permits deep drawing to shape a tank by presswork, the processing of titanium material is difficult, hence no past application of the material for a motorcycle fuel tank. This project was aimed at development of new techniques for mass production of titanium fuel tanks, and succeeded in mass production of titanium fuel tanks having an adequate durability to apply to a motocrosser that can receive a strong impact while driving. As a result, approximately 40% of weight reduction from the plastic fuel tank having the same fuel capacity was realized.
