4 ft lbs is greater than 5%. I'm really looking forward to seeing some validations and comparitive charts! Then obviously some enhanced versions.

It seems to me (and I'm no mechanic!) bigger diameter pistons allow / provide more torque than smaller and shorter stroke allows / forces more rpm's to provide the same amount of power. From the spec chart we have a larger bore and smaller stroke.

If my engine physics ring true and the referenced dyno chart above can be validated (even if it's flat model to model but then certainly to a lesser extent) then something may be (is) out of whack with the production version.

Conventional wisdom is that a longer stroke produces more torque, may actually be true.

Wardog,

Isnt the exhaust on 2006 R-1 4<1<2 not 4<2<1 as stated in your comparison chart. Not that it makes a hoot.

Barry :-)

Beats me. I got that info direct from Yamaha. Maybe one of our members with an R1 can confirm which it is.

Hey Guys, I just checked my month old 06 R1 and can confirm that the exhaust is 4-1-2. And also, the last spec I saw for horsepower, the '06 has 183 up from 180 in the 04-05's, not that it makes much of a difference

I have to say, I absolutly love the R1, I started riding on my '01 FZ1 4 years ago, and it is still in the garage. It was my first bike and I will always have a place for it in my heart, but the R1 is so much more visceral that I cannot go back. At least not until my knees go out and I can't get on it anymore ;)

Anyways, sorry for the rant.

Very good info Wardog, indeed looks like the 06 FZ is a carbon copy of the R1 with a few tweeks. I'm very interested to hear from 06 owners when they have a chance to get some performance mods to see what that awesome machine is truely capable of!

Thanks Wardog, it really helps understanding of the tweaks of the new bike.

I'm pleased to see the charging system output - I was concerned my Gerbing might cause difficulty.
I wouldn't get too excited about the increase in charging system output until you understand the load requirements of the EFI system--those solenoids use a lot of power.

I wonder if the charging system for the 06 will fit on the first gen bikes?
This is an interesting exercise -- more output translates to more stator package space from the increased wire size. Also, if anyone plans to do this, please make sure that you upgage the harness (red and black) from the regulator/rectifier to the battery, and replace that anemic 5 pin connector (3 whites, a red and a black) under the fuel tank--those terminals can't be good for more than about 10 amps continuous.

If the footpegs are higher than the R1 , then why do they drag so easily? Preload is up, I weigh 210. I changed out the rubber things for tapered short pegs. Now my foot drags and I am up on my toes. Any suggestions short of new bike? Are there some inexpensive rearsets?

Rearsets, yes (you can do a search for them), but inexpensive.....I guess that is relative to what you are willing to pay!

11.5 to1 compression is high as you neeed I always run93 octain fuel detonation is a killer
