GUGLAtech is an Italian company dedicated to making the world’s finest finest fuel and air filters. Our intrepid BestRest staff tested these filters under actual field conditions and they were so impressed, BestRest became the US dealer for GUGLAtech’s product line. Currently we offer products that fit most BMWs, KTMs, Ducatis, Yamahas, and Acerbis gas tanks, but other kits are coming soon.
Fuel Filters: Prevent fuel contamination with a GUGLAtech fuel filter. Most models drop right inside the neck of your gas tank and filter out contaminants such as dirt, sand, and WATER as you fill the tank. Other models require installation inside the tank.
The photo at left shows a GUGLAtech filter that we filled to the top with water. We wanted to see if the water penetrated the mesh (and would contaminate the fuel). It didn’t, even after 24 hours. We then poured out the water and filled it with fuel… which passed thru quickly and easily. Plainly stated, if your fuel supply has water or other contaminants, a GUGLAtech will strain it out, leaving your fuel free of dirt, sand, or water. And that means you won’t get stranded by the side of the road because of bad gas.
Note: Italian law requires a special ink when it’s applied by hand (the logo is hand-imprinted). That ink bonds with water and can pull a tiny droplet thru the mesh. After your first fueling the ink dissolves, and from that point (onward) water won’t penetrate the filter. We tested the same filter after flushing it with gas, and there was NO water penetration. We thought you’d want to know…
Air Filters: Filter your air with a re-usable GUGLAtech air filter. They meet or exceed OEM air filter specs. The filter has a 30-40 micron fabric mesh which cleans the air without restricting flow. The mesh is reinforced by a wire screen. This means the filter can be cleaned with compressed air and soapy water, WITHOUT DAMAGE TO THE FILTER. And that means you can use it over and over again. Basically, this is the last air filter you’ll ever need for your bike.
