Standard Features

 Lightweight and compact, 320 cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valves (4-valves/cyl), fuel injected, inline-twin cylinder engine. The engine has been designed to provide solid performance right across the rev range, with very linear throttle response, low vibration and excellent fuel economy  
 Downdraft style, compact combustion chamber  
    4-valves per cylinder  
    Straight intake path into the combustion chamber for excellent power output  
    4-valves per cylinder enhances the low to midrange torque  
 The YZF-R3 uses regular 87 octane gas  
 Intake valves are 26 mm in diameter and exhaust valves are 22.5 mm  
    Isonite surface treatment on the valve stems for improved durability and wear resistance  
    Valves feature carbon cutters on the valve stems to help reduce carbon build-up during slower speed operation  
 Valve adjustment interval is every 42,000 kms  
 Automatic cam chain tensioner  
    Reduces mechanical engine noise and maintenance  
 Lightweight, all aluminum DiASil cylinder (die cast all aluminum cylinder with silicone content)  
    Offers outstanding cooling performance / heat dissipation for consistent power delivery  
    Reduces weight since there are no heavy liners and cylinder is made completely of aluminum  
 Offset cylinder design  
    Offsets the cylinder 7 mm relative to the crankshaft (to the exhaust side)  
    Reduces frictional losses between the pistons and cylinder wall during the power stroke  
    Improved power output and improved fuel economy  
 180 degree crankshaft with uneven firing order  
    Helps reduce "pumping losses" for maximum power output  
    Provides an interesting exhaust note  
 Gear driven "primary coupled-force" balancer shaft  
    Reduces engine vibration for excellent rider comfort  
 Lightweight forged aluminum pistons  
    Provide fast engine response  
    Reduced weight  
    Reduced mechanical vibration for excellent durability  
 Carburized connecting rods (carburizing is a form heat treating)  
    Excellent strength and durability  
 "Closed loop" 32 mm throttle body fuel injection system  
    System uses an idle speed controller (ISC) to maintain a steady idle regardless of engine temperature  
    12 hole injectors for optimum fuel atomization  
    System is "tuned" to provide excellent "ride ability" and "linear" throttle control  
    "Closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust and automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions  
    Fuel injection benefits include choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy and reduced emissions  
 Air box utilizes a viscous paper type air filter  
 Compact, 6-speed transmission  
    Ratios specially designed to suit the character (torque and power) of the engine  
    5th and 6th gears are overdrive gears to reduce engine rpms at highway speeds  
 Compact, wet-type, multi-plate clutch  
    Ensures consistent, positive shifting  
    Light, easy clutch lever pull  
 Low mounted, 2 into 1 exhaust system  
    Utilizes a short design muffler fitted with a 3-way catalyzer to reduce exhaust emissions  
    Low mounted design centralizes mass for agile handling and lightweight feeling  
 Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI)  
    Produces a strong spark for fast starts  
    Provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms  
 Easy access spin-on type oil filter and engine oil drain plug  
    Fast and easy oil changes  
    Oil change interval is 5,000 kms after the initial 1,000 km break-in oil change  
 Air Induction System (AIS...not ram air)  
    Reduces harmful exhaust emissions  
    Injects fresh air into exhaust ports to fully burn any unburnt fuel, further reducing exhaust emissions  
 Lightweight, diamond-type, high tensile, steel frame  
    Features an optimized rigidity balance for light, agile handling with excellent stability  
    Engine is a stressed member of the chassis, allowing a lighter, more compact main frame design  
    Frame features a mix of both solid and rubber engine mounts  
    Electrostatic paint helps prevent corrosion  
 The riding position is one of the most important features of the R3. Despite its super sport styling the R3 offers excellent rider comfort thanks to its upright riding position  
 Key chassis geometry figures include:  
    1,380 mm (54.3 in.) wheelbase  
    25 degrees of rake and 95 mm of trail  
    50 / 50 front to rear weight distribution  
    Chassis dimensions and shape have been designed to centralize mass and lower the centre of gravity to provide the rider with light, agile handling  
 Tapered, long design, high tensile steel swingarm  
    Lightweight design reduces unsprung weight for superior suspension performance  
    Excellent rear wheel traction and control  
 41 mm KYB conventional style fork offers 130 mm (5.1 in.) of wheel travel
