    HOW-TO: R&G Radiator Guard Installation on a Yamaha R6

    This video is documenting the process of installing the R&G Radiator Guard on my 2009 Yamaha R6. The process will be the same for the YZF-R6 from 2006 to 2016. The installation process is fairly easy and can be done in approximately 60-90 minutes (time will vary based on the type of fairings). This is a very inexpensive mod that will protect your radiator from flying debris.

    Review & Installation of the RS1 Hit-Air Wearable Airbag Vest

    In this short video, I am explaining how the Hit-Air RS1 airbag vest works and I am also documenting the process of attaching the coiled wire to the frame of the bike. This is a new installation of the coiled wired on my R3 project bike. However, I have been using this airbag system for the last four years. I used this vest with all my race bikes, and I am convinced that this is the optimal setup for track days. I specifically chose this model because you don’t need to charge any batteries. You can re-pack the system yourself in case of an incident (as long as the airbag…

    HOW-TO: Optimize your Quick Shifter with a Perfect Shift Arm Kit

    The Norton Racing Perfect Shift Arm kit contains a universal shift arm and eight different offset lengths to set the shift arm position exactly where you want it to be. This shit kit will allow you to adjust the clearance and optimized the shift angle. In my opinion, this modification is a must if you installed an aftermarket Quick Shifter and/or upgraded your rearset.  Before installing the Perfect Shift Arm kit, my shift knuckle was at the very edge of the spline, and the module of my HM QuickShifter was almost touching my rearset mounting plate. This kit from Norton Racing allowed me to properly adjust the knuckle, which is now fully seated on the spline.  Additionally, I was able to choose a spacer that extended the distance between…

    Installing Decals, Stompgrip pads & a Seat on my R3

    In this video, I am documenting the process of installing decals, some Stompgrip tank grips, and a Graves race seat on my Yamaha YZF-R3. Installing decals on a bike is so satisfying! If you take your time and do it right with high-quality decals, you can transform the look of your machine. I love my daily vehicles to have a clean look with very minimal badging and decals, but it’s a different story for my race bikes. I love the vibrant splashes of colors from the decals on race fairings. Installing decals isn’t very difficult once you figure out how to align and center the decals on your bodywork. You…

    Flash the ECU on your R3 with the Norton Racing Race Spec ECU Flash (FTECU)

    If you want a big performance improvement on your bike, this is the solution! This flash from Norton Racing will result in faster revs, increased torque, and increased top end horsepower. I strongly recommend that you take the time to install the smog block off plates and AIS Removal kit at the same time. After watching this video, If you don’t feel comfortable re-flashing the ECU, you always have the option to mail your ECU to Norton Racing and get them to flash it for you.

    HM Quickshifter Installation on your Yamaha R3

    This video is describing the full process to install an HM Quickshifter Plus SS (Seamless Shift) on a Yamaha YZF-R3. Topics covered: determine the length of the shift rods, adjust the shift rods, how to route the wires, how to test for a reliable grounding spot, how to connect the wires to the ignition coils and the last step will be to test everything and make sure that the QuickShifter can intercept the shift signals. These quick shifter are great and very reliable since they don’t have any moving parts. They are easy to install and there is no need to do anything to your ECU. The HM Plus SS…

    Rebuild and Install a GPR Stabilizer

    I currently own 3 GPR V4 stabilizers and just received a new V5 unit. I love these steering dampers! You can mount them without drilling, and they can be adjusted on the fly while you are ridding, and most importantly, you can service them yourself. If you live in the United States, it’s an easy process to ship your steering damper back to GPR for servicing, but it’s a bit more complicated for everyone else. Therefore, having the option to service the steering damper yourself is a big bonus. It’s also nice to have a unit that can be ported to a different bike when or if needed. You simply…

    Simplify Your Life with SpeedBleeder Valves

    Replacing your brake bleeder valves with SpeedBleeder valves is one of my favorite upgrades for a motorcycle. It won’t make you faster on the race track, but this modification will significantly simplify the process of flushing and replacing your brake fluid. This modification is also advantageous even if you are not racing or doing track days. In this video, I am documenting the process of replacing the bleeder valves on a Yamaha R3. In my case, I have a stock caliper on the rear wheel and an aftermarket Brembo P4 caliper in front with a Brembo RCS-15 master cylinder. The process will be very similar if you still have the…
