Magic killed it with the graphics

The last major engine performance modification was the
addition of a complete Yoshimura stainless steel/aluminum
RS- 4 exhaust system with a carbon fiber end cap and
With the engine done, we focused our attention on handling. After all, in the off-road world, you sometimes have
to spend hours in the saddle, and a poor-handling bike
can make it seem like an eternity. On the 2014 Yamahas,
the main goal was mass centralization. We expanded on
this idea from Yamaha with a few bolt-on items. Dubach
Racing Development (DR.D) offers an engine relocation kit.
With the installation of two rear-engine-mount collars and
a bit of filing on the front engine mounts, it allows you to
move the engine forward 2mm. The theory is that putting
more weight on the front end will increase front-end bite,
improving traction and helping handling in certain situa-
tions. DR.D also offers aluminum kits to lower radiators up
to 30mm, further centralizing the mass of our YZ.

The Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 auto clutch was a great addition
for gnarly terrain, and when we got in trouble and needed a
little extra power, it was right there with a pull of the finger.
