Went to the site and found more stuff like:
SS Braided brake lines
Rear cowl
R3 frame sliders
R3 Radiator guard/screen
GTYR fuel cover carbon accent
Nice jacket and some tie down straps for just under $600 with the filter.
I was about to check out and remember the dealer telling me he would get me a discount on parts.
Printed out the list and taking it to him tomorrow!
OR
I can get a SATO rear set?? I'll wait on them and see if they will go on sale later.

Haven't installed mine yet. Waiting to get base dyno numbers. Then will be installing the filter, power commander and full yosh exhaust. But the current filter is paper. So I'd assume there will be an improvement.

Anyone have any comments on the air filter? Any noticeable difference?

Haven't taking the bike out much since installing it. But also added a power commander and full exhaust. So unsure of what difference is being cause by the air filter itself since I changed it all in one day. But you can see the different between the stock filter and the yamaha performance air filter. That stock filter had about 450 miles on it when I changed it out.

The change you would see would be absolutely minimal unless the stock filter is really dirty, then you'd get the same results with a new clean stock filter.

Got mine installed today FINALLY.

This filter is superior to the KN I mentioned 'may' work in this thread hereKN Air filter

Because the pleats run the opposite direction, the build of the rubber frame is far less flimsy than the KN, so bending in the middle shouldnt be an issue.

Also this Yam OE Performance filter has a slightly thinner frame with softer sealing rubber edge which seats nicely under the lip in the back of the air box.

Id recommend this filter over the KN any day. But Id still like to hear about the quality of construction and fitment of the BMC filter.

The blue Yamaha accessories filter is actually made by K&N. KN is also stamped right on it in the rubber, so while it might be superior to a K&N, it actually is a K&N. Obviously K&N must of out did themselves on the build. I have the same filter that I got directly through Yamaha and they told me their supplier is K&N; hence why you don't see the filter on K&N's parts list yet because they have a non-compete established with Yamaha :)

I noticed that on mine as well, I wasnt gonna mention it as I wasnt 100% sure.. The construction is very similar to the KN I mentioned in another thread but the sealing edge is far superior.

i Install two different "performance" air filter are K&N and this one because with the paper oem one dirty my throttle response is really bad and i found this differences:
Pros:
- More Torque
- Better Throttle response
- My R3 sounds difference like more crispier so i like that.
Cons:
- Gauge of heat is going crazy like five bars or four when idle after 10 minutes ride, and if i run it like really hard during fifteen minutes when idle is five bars blinking so i think that the PCV or Bazzaz tunning is required cause the mix is to lean.
- Smells like burn and like one the bike is new and i can see my oil when to slight brown to darker.

Higher flow filter = more air = lean mixture = overheating = BAD. Get a dyno tune setup for this ASAP. You can burn out your rings really easily running lean.

Just an intake won't cause it to run that lean besides fuel injection can compensate some.... Now if it was a full exhaust eh maybe

Running no muffler, Yamaha Air Filter and PCV map 4 (yoshi slipon + stock or aftermarket filter). Works great, smooth powerband, slight increase in power and fuel consumption overall. This, as compared to no muffler, stock filter and PCV map 1 (stock exhaust and stock filter)

Back to OEM

that's correct but only want to test it to see the results, actually running OEM paper filter that cost me 14.89$ at yamaha dealer here, but still this bike is an oven on the hot tropical weather of Panama.
