Try some premium in it. It will run better.
:D
LMAO. I did 2 tanks of 91 and didn't notice any difference other than losing 5mpg. I'm only running a slip on and didn't mess with the A/F so I don't think 91 is necessary for my bike. But if it makes your bike faster with your mods then keep at it.

WOW good looking bike!
Nice! The subtle yellow accents look really good.
Love the Yellow! IMHO, it needs a little more up high!
Thanks dudes. I might paint the matte black parts yellow and put the yellow Yamaha decal on the top of the glossy black side fairings. I do agree there needs to be more yellow.

I don't want my R3 to be faster. I just want it to run good.
If I want to go faster..... well..... you know.

Looks good! Have a link to the bar end lever guards?

Thanks dude. The lever guards probably won't do anything to protect the lever honestly, but it's a better bar weight than the stock. I removed the inner bar weight for this to fit. That inner bar weight is loose and rattles. Shaved at least a pound each. The bar end lever guards are lighter but there's way less vibration now even at 90mph.
