You may need to change fuel after our flash, it will certainly be different in some areas.

Small update for today. We got in our gold titanium RCS lever bolts, which look absolutely trick. I quickly got one onto the Brembo.

why the hose clamp around the Master Reservoir line? don't they make a cleaner looking piece to do the same thing?

2 wraps of safety wire works well

I went ahead and had some Brembo 6mm clamps included in our next order, so that should clear up the hose clamp issue.

I have some more cool stuff coming in soon. Should have an update by week's end. It's funny, my list never seems to get any shorter.

First, we wanted to continue blinging out the RCS a little bit, so I opted for a CNC red handlebar clamp, like the one seen on GP style masters.





Next, to celebrate our new partnership with Attack Performance, we decided to order a set of their rearsets, which have a very lightweight, racing inspired look and design. Another really cool thing about them, is they offer footpegs that are 10mm shorter, which we selected.





Lastly, we have ordered and acquired everything needed to complete one of our long-discussed projects and something I've wanted for some time.



All flashed and ready to go:



We've got a new OEM display, speed sensor and TC rotor on the way, as well as some other goodies I'll be posting about in due time.

Some new updates!

Some nice stuff came in -

OEM speedometer, TC rotor and and speed sensor:


RK's Chain Tool and the new EK ThreeD chain:




Both of these pieces are awesome. The chain is lighter and stronger than just about anything. It's a really innovative design. The chain breaker exceeded expectations greatly. We used it to break our RK GXW and removed a couple of links from the EK, all without any grinding. It didn't break a sweat!

TC installed!





I also took the opportunity to install new Driven sprockets.

More to come later.

SO are you going to be running the stock TC Rear Rotor or is this an Add on that will work with your aftermarket rear rotor?

The TC rotor is only used on the front. Yamaha uses the speed sensor off of the input shaft to determine rear wheel speed. All I basically had to do is modify the fork leg to accept the speed sensor. I'll post pics of the whole thing after Christmas.

Well, I had to buy the new speedometer, sensor and rotor. The rest I traded a linkage for. So you could say around $1,200.

That was what my guess was going to after what I found looking at the speedo housing.

TC conversion is complete, the front fork leg has been modified to accept the speed sensor.





We also installed an EK 3D chain and new Driven sprockets.





Lastly, we replaced a scratched Lacomoto swingarm cover with a shiny new one:




And installed Lacomoto's MKII version of their M1 Airbox Cover.







Needless to say, this cold weather can't end soon enough.

Some new updates - We've got a lot of cool stuff coming in, in preparation for the new season.

Here's a teaser with a few of the new parts.

Attack Peformance Adjustable-Offset Triple Clamps As well as a couple of offsets, fork clamp for the Ohlins steering damper and an ignition mount, which may not be used.













Amazingly, these things are incredibly light! They look like they'd weigh as much as a boat anchor, but not so. Attack has done an amazing job on these. They look absolutely sweet and they should offer better front-end feel and more precise handling.

Next, we have the Graves Motorsports Clutch Kit and YEC Clutch Springs, for better engagement and feel.




Lastly, we upgraded our front wheel spacers to Fast Frank Racing tapered, captive billet units, to match our rear wheel. These keep the spacers from falling out, allow faster, easier wheel changes and we also dropped an ounce of weight.




More to come!

Thanks, it's best that we don't tally up expenses, believe me! I appreciate the compliments. I do think we're nearing completion, although my "wish" list is still very long. It will probably never be quite done while I have it.
