Hi there!

We found this Forum completely by chance, which makes we very glad. On the ruNet there is not much information about R3, while here there is a lively discussion.

We selected R3 to go on the track on weekends. Before that, there were different motorcycles, but all had about 1000cc`s. And what was the surprise and even the delight of the baby R3, for the first 1000km of running-in. It is a very comfortable motorcycle, which gives a lot of emotion in the city and on the track.

Thanks for the Forum, we read it with interest.

Hi everyone!

A new rider here - picked up a 2015 R3. Love riding on two wheels (am an avid bicyclist) and looking forward to riding my R3 when the weather gets better in the PNW. I am mostly interested in exploring a motorcycle as a means of sustainable mobility, and pure, unadulterated fun :)

I am also planning to perform maintenance on the bike myself, so looking forward to learning about the ins-and-outs of this machine too.

Thanks!

Hi guys. Am from Australia, Canberra, Had my 2020 R3 for about 5 months now and absolutely love it, have previously owned a 2015 Kawasaki Njnja, 2019 KTM RC390 and 2019 Kawasaki Ninja and by far my R3 is the best bike I’ve ridden.
Vert happy with my bike and look forward to being a part of the community. 👍

Beautiful bike. Love the white&blue color scheme with blue rims.

Regarding your other bikes, I assume the 2015 Ninja is a 300 and the 2019 Ninja is a 400. If you so, you've now owned 4 bikes that are/were direct competitors to each other. Would it be possible for you to give your impressions from owning each bike? What you liked/disliked from each, reliability experience, strong/weak points, etc. The more detailed the better. The internet has lots of bike reviews comparing these bikes, but very few if any long term reviews from people that have owned all 4 of these. So you're in unique situation. Thanks in advance.

Hi all. New Rider from Sydney, Australia. New R3 owner. Picked up my new 2022 Yamaha R3 in Blue last weekend. So far i've ridden 150km and learning a lot about the bike and loving the bike! I had researched and read a lot about other 'entry level' bikes but I'm glad I decided on the R3. I have no previous experience on motorbikes but so far the R3 seems to have great handling, it's light and easy to control at slow speeds and manouvers (I haven't really had a chance to open her up as i'm still in the break in period) but the power delivery seems smooth and it's a great looking bike! I'm looking forward to what I can learn from others here and to any small improvements I can make to the bike in the near future (for comfort or ergo etc). Cheers. (y)

Hi guys, I recently got an R3 for my son. He started track days last year on a CBR250R at the age of 12. This year he wanted to race so I signed him up and it quickly became apparent that his bike was too slow in the race category he was in (up to 500cc's). So after two races I've upgraded his bike. His is a 2015 with ktech cartridges in the front and a ktech rr shock in the rear. Has a full Akra titanium exhaust, vortex clipons and vortex rearsets with a pc5 and quickshifter in GP shift. Also came with almost brand new tires chain and sprockets. The bike was used as a race bike so it's already predrilled. In short, he's quite excited about the bike. We're taking it to the track on Monday so he can open it up a bit. He rode it for a bit in a parking lot, but that's just not the same as a track or race day.

Will keep you guys posted about his race results.

As a side note, where can I get a spare set of rims for wets for this bike? I figured it being a 'beginner' bike they would be easy to come by, **** was I wrong.

Hi everyone.
I'm Adrian from Costa Rica. After riding a 150cc bike, a friend of mine sold me his 2015 R3 one month ago. It has 32.000km but for begining with sport bikes I consider it pretty good mileage.
By now, everything has been awesome with the bike. I use it mostly for commuting around 10 miles and I haven't traveled so much besides my work ride.
Any sugestion or advice with maintenance will bee appreciated.

Welcome and congrats on your new bike. I have a link to a 2015 R3s Owner's Manual below. The maintenance schedule and other data required are in there.
Also, if you have an authorized Yamaha Dealer close by, have them do a check for any outstanding "Safety Recalls" on your bike. There have been several on the 2015 model. Just give the dealer your bike's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and they can see if they've been completed, order parts if needed and schedule the repair. Since they are "Safety Recalls, it costs you nothing, Yamaha will pay for parts and labor.
