I Ride: Ducati 899
Gas boiling in my tank

Hi ,

I just installed a new engine in my 899 was quit a process .

At first start up I let it run to 20 mins , started up fine no issues . After I shut it off I could hear slight boiling and narrowed it down to my gas tank.

The bike after about 10 mins of idle hits 102F seem normal. , my question is, the boiling normal because Bike is just sitting at idle. heat is rising heating up tank? .

I have checked all my vacuum lines and all appear to be correct , I canít figure this out and have never noticed this issues before when I would idle bike in garage when Iíd work on it .


I know I missed something just canít figure this out .

Any suggestions?

I've had boiling after hard riding. i also had some extreme boiling and my gas cap shot off after my exhaust pipe cracked right at the cylinder head (vertical) and was cooking the bottom of the tank.

just curious how common this is. i know the rear of fuel tank sits just inches above vert. head but would take lots of heat to boil. I had a heat gun to my tank to warm up for installing stompgrips per instructions and barely would heat up due to liquid in tank.

I guess like trying to solder copper pipes filled with water.

Any way since I was installing engine covers with heatshields I decided to insulate bottom of tank since was already there just in case lol.

Hey. Thanks for the great idea - I ended figuring it out .
I Barley had any gas in my tank and after it running idle was enough heat to boil. Since then I have filled my tank and no issues what so ever .

Note to self donít let tank get below 3 lites

Looks like you just added some unnecessary weight and wasted some good foil.

Possibly lol! Not sure if it will help but donít think will hurt. Weight is a few ounces.
