Thanks for the video. An earlier discussion concerning the size of the front end forks. Yamaha lists, in their Spec Sheet for the 2019 R3, the size as 41mm. If I heard correctly, you measured them at 37mm. That'll make Jim happy to learn for certain. He originally questioned Yamaha's specs in an earlier post, based on a moto magazine early ride review.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question! ... Anon

Makes me glad I have 1st gen forks for the track, looks like putting carts in the '19 forks will be a biatch for us DIY'ers.

Good news everything swaps over, I haven't gotten race bodywork for my bike yet and I'm now considering getting the new style. Do you have to put a 2nd gen fairing stay on to mount the nose fairing?

Yeah, the fairing stay is different, so you'll need a 2019 fairing stay and 2019 gas tank to use 2019 bodywork. And the fender is different, so if you keep 2017 forks, you'll need a 2017 fender.

Cheers,
Jesse

Hmm sounds like a lot of work for cosmetics. Think I'll just stick with 1st gen stuff. Thanks!

It's awesome, way better, way easier to grip the bike while cornering/braking. I'm almost more excited about the new gas tank than the forks lol
