For most street riding, I seem to be in 4th gear, I know the bike generally needs to be reved but I have found sometimes at low or mid revs flat spots happen, anybody else.

Maybe something wrong, fuel type, etc.


Mine pulls away from as low as 5-6000, **** stong from 7-10,500 then slightly tapers off.
goes a little flat from 11500-12,2250 but hopefully a Full system and fuel controller will tidy that up.

What rpm are you shifting at from 3rd to 4th?

shifting maybe 7k but then decrease speed but still stay in same gear, think it may be some bad gas or something, it is very slight

R3 s are rev Monsters, so keep your rpms up (After Yamaha approved break in, of course.). Ravens mechanic told me to keep her between 8 & 13k rpms. Ravens pushing 35,000mi these days, and shes an absolute Sweetheart! He said she doesnt even begin to make real power until around 9k rpms!!
