Its the GYTR(?) from yamaha. Its the OEM one that they recommend. It doesn't have autoblip for downshift but works as intended. Installation was approx 30mins including removal of the fairings. Smoooooooth shifting and smooooth acceleration! For $170, i think its worth every penny.

solid choice! I highly recommend Bauce Racing for his ECU Tune if you haven't already. if you going to go that route, look into buying Block off plates ( driven is nice company) and a air filter upgrade. and you have one fun machine!
