For those interested in serious power gains, the YRS Engine Kit Parts include many specialized engine components developed from the team's racing exploits. Each part not only provides additional performance, but also was designed to increase strength over the standard OEM design. These include race-spec camshafts and sprockets, valve cotter sets and retainer sets, high-compression pistons, different thickness cylinder head gaskets, heavy duty clutch drive and driven plates, clutch spring sets, race-spec wiring harnesses, close-ratio transmissions, inner rotor/magneto case cover, and the EM Pro Engine Management System.
Engine Services include the Yoshimura ISF Process for transmissions. This metal surface treatment process reduces friction allowing internal reciprocating parts to run cooler, reducing wear and operating costs. Other specialized engine services include blueprinting, cylinder head service (three levels), machine gasket service and a complete race-spec engine service.
"Although these new YRS parts are designed by the Yoshimura Racing Division and have race proven pedigrees, they are mostly moderate in price, and very accessible," added Russell. "Anyone can now have a smattering of parts, or all the way to virtually the same bike that Team Rockstar/Makita/Yoshimura/Suzuki is racing on," Russell said, He then added: "All of these parts are manufactured in either the United States or at Yoshimura Japan out of the highest quality materials available."
Most parts are available now at your local dealer or directly from Yoshimura. Please contact YRS directly regarding services.
YRS also introduced a new product line of YRS Race Suits. These one and two-piece suits are manufactured by Pilot, Inc. and sport Yoshimura branding. YRS Race suits are available from Yoshimura directly or through Pilot,Inc.
Lastly, YRS is in the process of designing a dedicated website for the YRS line, however many products can be accessed by going to www.yoshimura-rd.com and clicking on the YRS logo on the bottom of the homepage.
