Yamaha YZF-R1 (2012-current)

Not much has changed with the 2012 R1, but the big news is it now has a six-stage traction control system, incorporating anti-wheelie in its two most intrusive levels. It also has a restyled nose, a slotted YZR-M1-style top yoke and a longer, softer rear shock. The changes aren%X92t enough to compete with the new-generation of hardcore superbikes, like the...

Yamaha YZF-R1 (2007-2008)

Yamaha%X92s latest R1 features new-found midrange drive from junking Yamaha%X92s tried and tested five-valve per cylinder in favour of the traditional four-valve set up, but at the same time installing some of the %X93bad boy%X94 engine manners the original model was famed for. The chassis also gets updated by way of new frame, swingarm and suspension to make this latest...

Yamaha YZF-R1 (2009-2011)

This is like no in-line-four cylinder sportsbike ever produced. It%X92s simply sensational.  The Yamaha R1%X92s ultra-short-stroke engine has a cross-plane crankshaft, with its crank pins set at 90%XB0 and has irregular firing intervals, which is technology lifted directly from Valentino Rossi%X92s factory YZR-M1. At a standstill the motor spins up like a two-stroke and on the move the R1%X92s ability...

Yamaha YZF-R1 (2004-2006)

It%X92s hard to fault the clinical, precise and devastatingly fast Yamaha YZF-R1. Its chassis can cope with all kinds of road surfaces and demolishes tight hairpins at any track. But it does demand skill and rivals like the CBR1000RR and GSX-R1000 are simply less work. For purists the Yamaha YZF-R1 still has something unique; a superb focus on the dark...

Yamaha YZF-R1 (1998-2003)

The third and final great sports bike of the nineties. The FireBlade set the agenda, the 916 added finesse and the Yamaha YZF-R1 topped them off with extra power and madness. Even today the original Yamaha YZF-R1 is a sports tool to be reckoned with and updated Yamaha YZF-R1s are even more potent and easier to use too.

2006 R1

Hi. My local dealer has offered to take my 11,000 mile GSXR750K5 plus %XA32500 against a pre reg (0 miles) 2006 R1. Previously I had a 2001 R1. Is there a huge difference between 06 & 07 models ?? If I wanted an 07 model it would be another %XA31500 to swap. Do I or don't I ?? Cheers Mike

Crash related to TPS recall

I purchased a new R1 in March 2004 and from 3000 miles onwards I noticed that the bike occasionally hesitated while pulling away from road junctions. The bike would begin to pull away normally and then suddenly stumble as if the fuel had been cut off. There was no pattern to the problem at all and weather conditions and miles travelled were irrelevant. The bike could do it 3 times in one day and then go a whole month without doing it at all. I discussed it with my dealer but they were unaware of any problems. In September 2004 ...

If you aint done this, do it!

Just gutted my '05 stock cans as per the "How to" on the R1-Forum site. The sound is fantastic and there is a noticable improvement in performance in both midrange and top end. I got my perforated sheet for the tubing from B&Q of all places for %XA37.25 each. I've retained the looks of the stock cans but turned them into race cans. Go get your drills out.
