When Yoshimura took a Yamaha R7 and developed all the parts needed to go racing in the MotoAmerica Twins Cup class at Laguna Seca last year, the point all along was to make those parts available for sale to the public. That time is now. See below for all the different parts available and their descriptions. For more information on all of the parts below, and other models Yoshimura builds products for, visit www.yoshimura-rd.com.

Yoshimura AT2 Race Series Titanium Exhaust

When it came to crafting a special race exhaust for the Yamaha R7, we pulled out all the stops. Created with premium alloy material then prototype after prototype until we reached the final test system. On a stock engine with no mods and 91 octane pump fuel, this new system creates +6.2% max HP and +2.7% max torque. This system is designed to create even more performance with motor work and our airbox so the gains we publish are just the start of a powerful package.

Loosing over 11 lbs. from the stock system our AT2 is ready to make your R7 move! The design of the AT2 tucks nicely under the lower cowling to keep it away from harms way as much as possible.

Product Details:

  • Full titanium construction made with premium titanium alloy from Japan
  • Saves over 11lbs from the stock OEM exhaust system
  • Includes M18 lambda sensor bungs on each header leg and at the tailpipe

Yoshimura #ProjectR7 Camshafts

Camshafts are the heart of any engine and is where tuning started for us. In 1954 Pop Yoshimura was grinding cams by hand. A lot of time has passed since then, one thing has not…passion. Today, Yoshimura cams are created in Japan from a special steel alloy billet and is just what the CP2 engine needs to make more grunt.

Product Details:

  • Full billet intake and exhaust cam, made by Yoshimura Japan

  • Intake lift 9.60mm / duration 250 degrees
  • Exhaust lift 8.35mm / duration 246 degrees

Installer should be familiar with engine building, these are not drop in replacement! Cams must be degreed during installation.

Yoshimura will offer complete engine build services for the Yamaha R7. Engine build package details, services, and pricing coming soon.

Yoshimura Swingarm Pivot Kit

Optimizing the Yamaha R7’s chassis for the increased speeds and lean angles of racing is extremely important, millimeters count. Our Swingarm Pivot Kit gets the Yamaha R7 pointed in the right direction and helps keep it there giving the rider confidence even in turns where the grip is marginal.

By flipping the two pivot inserts the racers can increase or decrease by 1.5mm. That may not seam like a lot but the changes are dramatic, enough to make the R7 feel like the podium contender it is! When combined with our Suspension Link part #400BG137200 the two components enhance the handling of the R7 perfectly!

Product Details:

  • 6061-T6 billet aluminum, black anodized with laser etched logo

Yoshimura Suspension Linkage Kit

OEM linkage is designed for street and 2-up riding, low ratio, high progression. Engineering the Yamaha R7 to be more stable at the higher speeds for racing is crucial. So we enlisted a world renowned suspension/chassis engineer to get the R7 right for racing.

Our suspension link system works by modifying the linkage ratio and progression with a higher ratio and adds more linear progression. This set up is designed to work well with the stock OEM R7 front end.

This link is designed for enthusiast track days and professional racing.
