Suzuki GSX-R1000RR Yoshimura Limited Edition

The Yoshimura Race Shop (YRS) has prepped the 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 in accordance with AMA American Superbike rules and they’ve come up with the totally awesome GSX-R1000RR. The engine features YRS’ ST-R Type R high-lift cams, different head gaskets for increased compression, BMC air-filter for increased air flow, a quick shifter and an R77 Titanium/Carbonfibre exhaust system.

The Suzuki's suspension has also been suitably tweaked, with a new swingarm pivot insert, revised rear suspension linkage and Showa rear shock with race-spec valving. The front fork also gets race-spec valving and an extra 25mm of ride height adjustment. Other new bits include Galfer stainless steel braided brake lines and Galfer front brake pads, YRS chassis protector and Yoshimura R&D graphics.

At a recent press conference in California, Brant Russell, Vice President of Marketing for Yoshimura R&D of America Inc., spoke about the newly set up Yoshimura Race Shop (YRS). ‘The super secret days of racing are over. The fact that we are now racing production based Superbikes makes it a good time to open our doors and offer parts and services to the general public. It's time to share our success and lineage with our customers and that is why YRS was created,’ he said.

YRS will deal in engine and suspension parts and will also offer engine tuning and blueprinting services. The main thrust will be on the GSX-R1000 though YRS will also provide parts for the Fireblade, R1 and others. All parts will carry the ‘Yoshimura’ branding. ‘Although these new YRS parts are designed by the Yoshimura Racing Division and have race proven pedigrees, they are mostly moderate in price, and very accessible. All of these parts are manufactured in either the United States or at Yoshimura Japan out of the highest quality materials available,’ says Russell.
