  • Re: Yamaha YZF R3 Owners Reviews and Experiences



    After washing.

    Mandatory accessories needed for a stock r3,

    1) fender eliminator


    2) clip ons with 7 degree drop angle + lowered fork (3 inches)
    No pictures for this, but just to look and feel sportier.

    3) rear set relocation bracket, for the same reason as above


    And here's a shot with its older brother

      [MENTION=8432]abhisheksircar[/MENTION]: Can you please provide some details about the paddock stand that you purchased from Mumbai? I saw it in your Team BHP thread.
      We have some questions like:
      1. What are the swingarm contact points made of-rubber?
      2. Do we have to mount at a certain point on the swingarm?
      I had one from the R15 and it worked in the same way. Just wanted to confirm.
      2. Can the seller ship to other cities as well?

      For 2200, it's a great investment as it doesn't even need spools.
      Some pictures would be welcome as well!

            +1 to this. Eagerly waiting for the answers. Its really good deal. I saw one in Redline plus, but its 3k and out of stock😞. Moreover it requires spools for mounting.

                      2. no specific point. anywhere under the swingarm.
                      3. yes, anywhere in india"

                            It is very much comfortable with Ladies/any pillion even for long rides also.
                            Apart from having grab rails it has greater comfort level for pillion.
                            In 1st week of Oct'15, I we were accompanied with [MENTION=61712]ArnabC[/MENTION] to and fro Goa from Bangalore with Pillion.
                            He said both him and her pillion had a good ride and even she was fine with 15 hours return journey due to torrential rains while coming back from Goa.

                            Though the seat and foot pegs are higher, comfort level is good and even calf muscles are not in strained position.
                            But be cautious as there is no proper Tyre guard, in rains Pillion's leg is gonna have slushy shoes.
                            [MENTION=22648]royaldesigner[/MENTION] is also accompanied with pillion atleast ion city and hey may also give you more information.
                            [MENTION=61712]ArnabC[/MENTION] can give you more insight, right now he is busy riding back from Kolkata on his R3.

                              The pillion comfort is far better compared to Rc390, Duke200, Yamaha R15 V2.
                              Even the bike doesn't have grab rails. the panels have a strong flat land where the pillion can hold comfortably.

                                Test rode R3 today in bilaspur ( Chhattisgarh ) and it definitely doesn't looks likes R15 but not as aggressive as R15 in terms of looks but it doesn't mean bike looks bad it looks good especially from the front. Seats are comfortable and are good for touring. Riding posture is relaxed not as aggressive as R15 or RC 390. Instrument console looks good too, every information is clearly displayed. Now coming to engine its smooth and vibe free and has very good low end torque. Brakes are good but rear brake lever was something i was not liking but it can be adjusted. OTR price here is 3.74 L and i am thinking that this is suitable upgrade from my current duke 390.
