Yoshimura Japan Co. Ltd. is developing a range of racing parts for the Suzuki GSX-R1000.

According to Keiko Oshimi of Yoshimura Japan, the company has already developed camshafts, a stainless-steel racing exhaust system and an ECU, and is working on a piston kit, valve spring retainers, head gaskets, a close-ratio transmission, an oil sump to go with the racing exhaust system, a 24-liter aluminum-alloy fuel tank and various ignition components.

Chassis parts being developed include a rear link and front fork inner cartridges.

“We do not know which parts will be available for sale and when and some products are used only for Yoshimura team,” wrote Oshimi in an e-mail written to Yoshimura customer Nigel Murison of South Africa. Murison posted the e-mail on gixxer.com.
