    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…

    Installing a Norton Racing Soft Pull Throttle Return Spring on your R3

    In this video, I am replacing the Throttle return spring on my Yamaha R3 with a Norton Racing Soft Pull Throttle Return Spring. This Spring is softer than the OEM spring and provides a much lighter, easier pull on the throttle when a race throttle system is installed. As a result you will need less force to twist your throttle resulting in a more “gentle” throttle and offering better throttle feel and control. This small change will make a big difference when spending long hours/days on the track. This is a fairly easy modification and shouldn’t take much time to complete. You will be able to feel a BIG difference…
