Starting out to give the 2005 Yamaha YZF-R6 more horsepower and a new fork, the R6 nearly became new motorcycle with new camshafts, bigger throttle bodies, improved fuel injection, revised intake funnels and more, resulting in a smoother, fatter powerband with three more horsepower at 13,000 rpm.
To channel that power, a new, fully-adjustable inverted fork with 41mm tubes was added for the most precise handling possible. It was too good a place to resist mounting powerful new 310mm front disc brakes, radial calipers and a radial master cylinder to even further exploit the R6's amazing front-end feel. The added rigidity of the new fork led to a redesign of the main frame to accommodate new rear suspension linkage. YZF R6 Fairings
