Been doing some more performance mods and cosmetic to my R3.
Performance wise:
- Dynojet Quickshifter
- Preload Adjusters
- Vortex Sprockets (14/46)
- Vortex Chain
- Healtech Speedo Healer
Cosmetic Wise:
- Black out Tank Piece from a 2016 R3
- Immortal Graphix tank pad
- Luimoto Seat Cover
That's not all I have done of course, but will be doing a part on that in the future. Going to be one long video lol.

Do you have the ABS version of the r3? I bought the speedo healer from healtech, but I am afraid of installing it. It seems like you have to cut one of the ABS cables but I dont know which one. It would be awesome if you could make a Video or a Post about it!

Can you describe the difference in detail? ;)
Acceleration is amazing, i have a lot more torque in every gear. I actually have enough to pass cars alot faster. I use my R3 mostly for street and Track (1.3 small course). Rarely I get on the highway. it's perfect for me, but if you take highways 85% of the time, probably not the best. at 70mph im at 7800-8400 rpm. It works if i need to get on the highway for a small bit, but wouldn't go long distance. Ill have more stuff on it after I test it. will do speed test/acceleration test with times etc.

I do not have the ABS version. That's weird, you shouldn't have to do that (well Idk because mines isn't abs lol) but for mine i just connected it to the speed sensor and the oem plugs into the second plug it came with. I made a video on installing it, just haven't edited it yet. But I will have a video on how to install it, sorry i couldn't be more help

Same - Seeing your journey and how well it's been for you was one reason I decided on an R3 as well. Thanks for the videos and keep on making them!
That's awesome! Thanks for watching, I'll definitely keep em coming!

Could you review the preload adjusters? Is it effective? Did you buy online?

Sure thing! still have the video edit of installing, but overall they seem to help some of the "diving" the suspension has when braking hard. couldn't beat the price for what they do. And yeah I bought them off of ebay.

Wait, doesn't changing the gear in fondly really affect when the power comes in and not the actual power output? That is what I though original,y but when I read this post, I dug into it more and found this article. I'm confused now.

I do feel though that in stock confiig I had enough power for passing, and that's in SoCal freeway traffic. You just gotta know where the engine makes power to pass, and how long it takes to get decent acceleration. I wanted to change my gearing for the track initially but now I want to keep the bike the way it is and start maxing out on every gear first. So far most sections between corners at third gear are wheee I am at with the exceptions of the straights where I get to 5th before having to brake and downshift. This track day business is addicting.

You are correct. It only changes where the power comes into play. I'm not saying i gained power, but for city riding i can be cruising at a lower rpm and if need be twist the throttle and be gone (for the most part lol it is still a 300). vs when i had stock gearing, i had to be in a higher rpm for the power to kick in. Both ratios are good, just depends where you want the power. The track that I run is very tight and I feel changing my ratio will help with a edge with exiting the corner at higher speeds. Picture of the track below. Sorry for the confusion.

Wow for that much money and trouble just get an R6 and be done and have REAL acceleration.

Gotta love people who get a 300cc bike and pour money into it trying to make it something it will never be. Now I get wanting the bike to have a one-of-kind look, but mechanically, I leave that to the engineers at Yamaha.

Yea you get a bit better acceleration but at what cost? More engine wear, worse gas mileage, etc.

Nah, I'll stick with stock and if I want better acceleration I'll upgrade the part that matters most, the engine. ;)

I've spent more on aftermarket parts then it would cost to buy a 600. Does this make me unwise? I'd say no because I all ready have an R6 and an R1. My R3 is totally tricked out and smokes 600 and 1000 in the canyons. Here's my list.
Graves Full system
FTECU flash with custom Graves mapping
Ohlins shock and fork kit
Graves frame sliders
Graves 41m riser bars
Graves break lever guard
Graves fender eliminator
Graves front turn signals
Dunlop Alpha 13 tires
Graves captive wheel spacers and chain adjustet retention kit
Graves 90* aluminum valve stems Active adjustable folding clutch and brake levers
Speed cell light weight battery
Steel brake lines from Goodridge
Next up is light weight forged wheels from Galespeed. I tried to get carbon wheels but rotobox doesn't have them.
Anyway ya this thing is trick and halls ass
When I reach 5000 miles I'm going to do the engine. ?

He really hasn't spent that much money, definitely nowhere near the extra cost of an R6! I don't think he ever said he wanted it to be a superbike! It sounds like he's just made a few adjustments and additions to make the bike suit his needs a bit better and I don't think gas mileage is top priority for him. As for more "engine wear"... lol, time to wake up if you think any of his mods will make any noticeable difference to engine wear.

Maybe when you "upgrade the part that matters most, the engine" I'll tell you how you never rode the R3 to its full capabilities so you wasted your money getting a bigger bike ?
