R&D Yamaha FZR / FZS Sponsons
The new R&D Yamaha FZR Pro Series Sponson Kit was designed and developed with new generation performance concepts in mind to deliver an upscale level of handling and speed performance with offshore and closed course race proven adjustability options. The R&D Pro Series Sponson Kit has been extensively offshore, race track, and 1 and 2 up recreational tested to guarantee a comfortable setting for any riding style or condition! The R&D Sponson Kit will deliver higher top speed performance and a much smoother and more predictable ride over O.E.M. sponsons. Low and high-speed turns are a breeze with added control and stability. The secret to R&D’s new generation concept is in the backing plate design with an aftermarket first, low friction concept that breaks up and relieves speed robbing drag within the sponsons backing plate channel area. The new R&D design staggers the sponson blades fins water trapping area to pick up less water in the front and more in the back. The stagger/step-up concept greatly reduces chine walk in high speed corners, while allowing more rear end grip. There is also a higher end recreational/race setting with enough rear grip for the best of pro’s. Finally there is an aftermarket sponson kit that offers it all. More top speed due to less friction drag, less chine walking, racer preferred rear end grip, and unmatched straight line stability.
