Yamaha Motor Engineering is devoted to the development and manufacture of YEC Yamaha Racing Parts: high-performance engine and chassis racing parts for the Yamaha YZF-R1 and YZF-R6. Yamaha Motor Engineering, wholly-owned by Yamaha, is the only officially-approved supplier of racing parts for the R-series machines.
Featuring an advanced technical specification, the latest-generation Yamaha R1 and R6 are recognized as being two of the best machines in their respective categories. For 2008 the YEC line-up includes a range of advanced engine and chassis racing parts which are designed to transform these class-leading machines into full-on race bikes which have the potential to win at the very highest level. Yamaha YEC Racing Parts are used by Yamaha's winning superbike, supersport, superstock and endurance teams, and the very same parts that have helped these teams to numerous successes over the years are now available to the non-factory rider.
Because Yamaha YEC Racing Parts are developed in-house, we are able to finalize new racing parts before a new model is released for sale, and this allows us to thoroughly test and evaluate every component well in advance. This means that as soon as any new R-series model arrives in the showrooms, the very latest generation of fully-tested Yamaha YEC Racing Parts are soon to follow.
Testing and development of Yamaha YEC Racing Parts is carried out in association with MG Competition, the highly-respected team that runs the racing squad of Team YZF Yamaha. As well as using input from our World Superbike and World Supersport teams to evaluate new parts, we also use top development riders as Shinichi Nakatomi to carry out intensive track testing.
In addition to this demanding on-track development schedule, MG Competition also carry out thorough workshop evaluation of all Yamaha YEC racing parts jointly with engineers from Japan at their world-class testing facilities, and employ three dedicated development engineers who work exclusively on the Yamaha YEC program.
All Yamaha YEC Racing Parts meet Yamaha's rigorous corporate standards, so be assured that with YEC you will only get the highest quality products for your Yamaha R6 or R1 bike.
