Doc-Ram's R3 race build

Hey y'all

This thread will document some/most of what I'm doing to build my R3 for the race season

Bought a brand new 2016 R3 and put ~100 miles on the street before turning it into track/race only mode.

First up: Oil and filter change

Next set of mods:

Performance:
1. Akrapovic full exhaust (from Norton Fab)
2. Smog block-off plates
3. Eliminate pesky emissions stuff (charcoal canister)
4. Bazzaz Z-Fi
5. Annitori QS (stand alone unit controlling injectors)
6. BMC air filter

Chasis:
1. Andreani fork cartridge kit
2. Ohlins rear shock

Controls:
1. Norton fab rearset relocation plates V1 (coz I like my feet higher up)
2. Clipons relocated to below the top triple clamp

Brakes:
1. SS braided lines
2. Vesrah brake pads

Protection: (Bauce Racing)
1. Woodcraft case saver
2. Woodcraft frame sliders
3. Woodcraft rear spools (rear axle slider?)

Bodywork:
1. Armor bodies SS body work (Bauce Racing)
2. Paint to be done by MotoGloss

Others:
I'll have to see what else I bought, lol

I didnt take any pics in the stock form...just google the 2016 R3 in matte gray, haha

Re: Doc-Ram's R3 race build

Fork cartridge kit installed by local shop Hare motorsports

Mounted the forks flush with the top triple. Will let Dave Moss setup the geometry and suspension settings on June 5th at the track (Thunderhill)





Relocated the clip-ons below the top triple clamp



Rearsets relocated. Sadly, I could not get the rear brake reservoir mounted correctly, so zip tied it for now. Will work on that later (no pics yet)



Starting to mount the race bodywork. Should not have started with the tail first :|

I was real confused how this $hit mounts on as it was pretty tight. Glad I found Jesse' site (Yamaha R3 Racing - Home - YamahaR3Racing.com) and his useful video to mount the tail.



I still cant get the tail mounted with the seat ....most likely will cut out some bodywork with a dremmel to make space to take the seat ON/OFF without needing to take the tail off. Its quite a PITA to mount the tail

Paint ideas for bodywork

Some ideas for paint scheme ...one of my colleagues was helping with PhotoShop on this

Coming along nicely. I like the paint scheme in the top/right.

What's your plan for tires?

I got some take-offs from a RC390 - Pirelli Diablo street tires for $50, for now till I get comfortable with the bike and start upping my pace. For racing, maybe go with the Pirelli race DOT tires.

I think I'm smitten to this scheme....I'll place the Sun/Moon decals in a different spot though

Re: Doc-Ram's R3 race build

Man... I would love to zip around a track on a little bike. I have been contemplating getting a 300 or one of the 390's to race in the ultra light weight classes around here. Its easier on the wallet, just not as much speed!!

Excited for the updates here.

I recommend the 320 parallel twin. The 390 is a great bike but working on it is a PITA I've heard.

Oddly enough, I'm only 5-7s off my best pace on the 300 Vs my R6 at a horsepower track (Thunderhill). I do a consistent 2:15 on the R6 with 2:13-2:14 if I decide to push anytime. On a stock Ninja 250, my best time was 2:20. This track has two long straights and back section that's extremely fast (for me, lol).

I hope to learn a lot more better riding on the 300 and then get back on the R6 to turn in some sub 2:10 lap times soon enough
