The All New Yamaha R1 Release Years

When working on your R1 or making custom mods, it is good to know which years the motorcycle was essentially the same bike.  The rule has been every 2 years except for the 2004-2006 R1 motorcycles where the bike was essentially the same release for 3 years instead of 2 years.

Here is a list of the years that the Yamaha R1 was basically the same superbike:

1998 – 1999

2000 – 2001

2002 – 2003

* 2004 – 2006 

2007 – 2008

2009 – 2010

SA Speed Trap Twitter Updates and Tool for Sprocket Gearing

Normally, this page is only for our R1 how to videos.  However, there are two sites we wanted to share that could be handy.

One is a Twitter page for updates on speed traps and unmarked police car sitings in San Antonio, TX.  We never suggest speeding (save that for the racetrack), but it is your right to know that you are being monitored on the roadways by marked and unmarked police forces.  See the updates here:!/sastreetriders

And if you are thinking about changing the teeth on your sprocket for speed or acceleration changes, this tool will be very handy:

Long live MotoGP!!
