I keep an eye on the Canadian website for new accessories and not much has been added besides chrome led signals....

Decided to look into R25 accessories.... I would imagine these will be available for the R3 in due time.

Japanese Yamaha Accessories R25

The storage cowl looks neat.

Does look nice but i assume that i've got to cut into the fenders for the assembly?
According to the Yamaha Canada website, you have to drill a 7mm hole in each fender.

There are R25 Bobbin style frame sliders that mount through the gap in the fairing. These same style will be available for the R3 in no time at all after release.


Its your choice of the sleek factory look (but drilling your fairing).. or having the round bobbin style slider that sticks quite a few inches out from the side of the bike...

Factory sliders would be better if you went down @ speed and the bike went for a curb/pothole/grate..... if you have the bobbin style @ 30mph if those snag anything in the slide they can do damage to whatever they're mounted to... or worse case, send your bike cartwheeling and causing more damage. This is rare but I know people who have seen it happen at higher speeds.

True, though i dont think the factory protectors do their work as good as the good old bobbin

I think I'd rather have it stick out a bit more and protect the bike more. I don't really think it looks bad. Hopefully I never fall in a way that it would be put to use though.

The factory frame slider looks very good, it brakes the massive silver colour on the main fender. I'm considering to put both bobbins and factory sliders on my R3 when it arrives at the dealer. Is 2 protectorset pure moneywaste or will it protect even better? I've tried to imagine how it will functionate, no results ;)

Well if you do post up some pictures for us to see how it looks.

I heard that these will be a originale accessoire:


These (on R25, same idea) are the non-official bobbins. These always did what they were bought for.


Next to the fact I live in the Netherlands ( speed limits, tickets, dangerous kamikaze drivers with phone in their hands on the highway at 120 km/hour ), I'm not much of a racer. Still i love the looks of the factory accessoire slider, it just doesn't looks like a real protector for the R3. If i would add both I'd be more sure of little damage when something happends.

What do you guys think?

From the picture above I posted, you can see with the aftermarket bobbins going down at speed, they protected 98% of the fairings minus the very top sharp edged corner.... if you're putting the bobbins on, the factory sliders arent really doing much.

Its hard to see the damage on the front axle sliders but they probably helped in that picture as well.

More is always better when it comes to protecting your bike as it acts as easy "insurance" against what could happen without it.

Superbike planet has a short informational article on the collaboration between Yamaha and Yoshimura for an exhaust for R3/R1 to be available from the dealer. Looks sweet.

The Yamaha website says it is $399 but I got mine on Ebay from a Yamaha dealer and it was $345 and free shipping.

The R77 is the proper carbon from Yoshimura, but try to find one. Two brothers has one for less money, but has little affect on the power/torque. Akrapovic carbon has one made for the R3. It looks good and cost less than the other two.:|
