Holy shiite!!! That's a nice looking bike.

Check out that exhaust pipe though. IMHO it sticks out WAAAYYYY too far. My FMF TiPowercore only sticks out about 3" past the numberplate.

Looks like the airbox and subframe are all one piece. Very trick.

that is only one thing....look at the oiling lines or lack of them with combo water cooler
the rear brake resevoir/cover
the forks and shock are also trick

The FIM sound limits are tighter restrictions - therefore a longer muffler

And it just looks BAD@$$ in Black!

I thought I had read that while they DB number is lower because of the way they do the testing it is comparable to the AMA standard. Can't swear to that how ever.

That is a nice looking bike!

I wonder how much those are? Rumour is that when Yamaha goes fi that airbox subframe will be part of the package.

Is that the FM powerbomb header? Or is that the stock European header?

That is an Arrow header, a copy of the powerbomb. Am I the only one that hates the way black bikes look?

New swingarm and linkage setup. I thinks it looks amazing KJ. Wish the monster logo was blue though, just to keeps some yamaha hertiage in their.
