IDK if someone else posted this, but I just saw that Ohlins has a ($$$) nice rear shock for the R25 and R3. I don't see it listed in the Ohlins US site, but Asian and EU Ohlins sites list it.

Model: YA467 Code: S46HR1C1L

From that source it would cost $852.00 plus shipping, since you don't pay the 19% VAT if you live outside the EU.

Still very pricey at 17% of the cost of the bike!

Here's a video of an R3 at the Bangkok Show that has the Ohlins installed

I paid $647.12, shipped to Missouri USA from KD Project Racing in Thailand. See my thread "Racing Shock $$$$$$$".
It took 5 days to get here.

I know! Their 21,300 baht about made me crap. That's a BIG number. Fortunately, their baht is only a fraction of the American dollar. So I take it you jumped on it? Ohlins build quality is impressive.
Penske and the others had better keep their prices "competitive", or they're gonna lose their arses on this bike...

That's a polished stainless Yoshimura tri-oval with a carbon fiber tip. I'm not sure that it's commercially available. It might be one of their prototypes. Oftentimes, when a manufacturer comes out with a new bike they take it to the shows with all sorts of knick-knack prototype parts on it which won't come from the factory (i.e. that snazzy paint job, the Ohlins shock and the deleted rear fender, just to mention a few items). Not to say that that pipe ISN'T available, it may be.

The exhaust in the video is the Yoshimura R-11 slip-on, with the Titanium cover variation. It's supposed to mimic the look of their WSBK exhausts, and it's not available in the US, of course:(. It's also not cheap at more than $700 :crying: sold on Yoshi Japan's website.

I wouldn't have believed it, but the YA467, with remote res, bracket and hardware weighs about 200g less than the stock shocker. (2791 vs 2999). Kewl.

We have a special sale going on these through end of this week.
So if you order before Monday , we can do.
YA467 Shock - $1000... Sale price - $885

Not what I'd call a special sale by any stretch but thought I'd mention it.

@t-rav_12, so?

> from KD Project Racing in Thailand

I posted a price from a proper US supplier. You can order parts from the EU and they are also frequently cheaper than US-sourced too. It was another data point for those who wanted to see what the domestic market offered and if they wanted to still go with an off-shore transaction.
