2006 Yamaha R1 Limited

This R1 is number 455 of 500 produced for worldwide distribution. This was Yamaha's attempt to trump the other Jap manufacturers with a Limited Edition special. Yamaha opened the check book and added Ohlins forks, and Ohlins rear shock, a slipper clutch and Marchasini light weight wheels. They finished these bikes off in a special bumble bee yellow Yamaha racing paint job. To enhance the already stout power plant I added a full titanium Graves exhaust, YEC velocity stacks, YEC cams, YEC head gasket and a PC3R Power Commander fuel controller. On the Dyno Jet 250 it produces a very healthy 173.6 rwhp. It is a very top loaded type of power and extremely exciting when riding it to its full potential. The 5 valve per cylinder motor just loves to scream to redline. It has a very noticeable power band type of delivery. Great for super high speed wheelies! I have owned this one since birth and I have been the only rider. A great liter bike bike without the electronic age taking away all the drama!
