Europe: Yamaha Racing Parts Available

Yamaha R1 / R6 Racebike

Those already planning racing schedules and track-day activities can now place orders for YEC’s 2011 Yamaha Racing Parts to assist the augmentation of their YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 and hone their equipment for competitive use.

The deadline for the second of three European ordering rounds for the exceptional kits – produced with care and diligence by Yamaha Motor Engineering – is Jan. 14 to ensure delivery for late April 2011 and the start of many series and events across Europe.

As is widely recognised, YEC is the only and definitive option for YZF-R motorcycle owners with a passion for getting on the race-track and making the most of formidable Yamaha performance.

The Racing Parts range for 2011 contains a wide spectrum of components for engine and chassis upgrades, as well as parts suited to older R-series machines and the inclusion of several tools to assist with the set-up and installation of the material.

The renewed parts for 2011 include camshafts, air funnel sets and valve springs for the R1 and a new camshaft for the R6 and for both models updated ECU race mappings are available.

YEC Racing Parts are developed "in-house" by a dedicated team thus allowing thorough testing and evaluation of every component before a new model is released for sale to the public. YEC Racing Parts are developed using valuable input from Yamaha’s officially supported racing teams, as well as from factory test riders, such as 2010 World Superbike star Cal Crutchlow.

YEC racers are in good company as the equipment is embraced by the likes of 2010 European Superstock 600 Champion Jeremy Guarnoni and 2009 FIM World Endurance Champions Yamaha Austria Racing Team, to name but a few.

The third and last ordering period for the 2011 racing calendar will be up until May 16th for delivery by mid-August, so do not miss out on the January cut-off date for the latest refinements to the YZF-Rs.

More information and recommend retail prices can be found here.

YEC Racing Parts are for closed-circuit use only and are sold through the official Yamaha network. For further information on specifications and availability in Europe please contact a local Yamaha dealer or national Yamaha Distributor.
