Yamaha Now Taking Orders For 2013 YEC Racing Kit Parts

2013 YEC Racing Parts: Perfect Performance Parts To Take it To The Next Level

Born from a pedigree of racing success in Championships across the globe, YEC Racing Parts continue to be the right choice for all R-Series machines in 2013. The full catalogue for the Yamaha YZF-R1 and R6 motorcycles is now available to order in Europe through the first of three distribution windows; the first deadline being November 30th for delivery by March 2013.

Yamaha's YEC division continues to work closely with the teams and riders racing their R1s and R6s at the highest levels and uses their feedback and experience to forge an indispensible set of modifications to ensure optimum competitive performance. With public track days becoming more and more popular, the YEC Racing Parts range is the perfect solution for riders looking to maximise the potential of their Yamaha 'track tools'.

Recent years have seen multiple champions benefit from the successful combination of Yamaha's R-Series machines and YEC Racing Parts. 2011 saw Chaz Davies dominate the World Supersport Championship whilst Tommy Hill swept the board on his R1 in the British Superbike Championship. Hill was back again in 2012 as one of the main protagonists in the fight for the title, taking the challenge down to the last round. The R1 also marked its strength by recording multiple race wins again in the German Superbike Series with Matej Smrz, finishing on podia at several rounds of the incredibly grueling World Endurance Championship and with American Josh Hayes winning his 3rd consecutive AMA-Superbike title on the Yamaha in dominant fashion.

There where numerous victories and championships for the R6 as well such as Jordi Torres taking the European Supersport Championship and Tatu Lauslehto claiming the German Supersport title. In the European Superstock 600 class, where the YEC ECU and wireharness are allowed, the strength of the R6 is shown by more than half of the field choosing the Yamaha as their weapon of choice during the 2012 season.

The 2013 YEC range consists of a wide choice of racing upgrades for engine and chassis for the latest YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 generation, whilst owners of previous R-Series models are also supported.

Despite inflation and exchange rate changes the recommended retail prices for all YEC Racing Parts have been kept the same as the current season price list.

YEC Racing Parts are for closed-circuit use only and are sold trough the official European Yamaha network. For further information on specifications and availability in Europe please contact a local Yamaha dealer or national Yamaha Distributor.
