"Speed is only good when wisdom leads the way"
I'm selling my land speed racer to pay for the next bike. This bike makes my wife very nervous so I need to sell it and build something a bit slower.
I modified this 2001 Yamaha R1 (20 valve) to race on the Bonneville Salt Flats. I raced this year (2017) and the bike passed tech inspection and ran Ok. The mid range throttle was off because I didn't have any richer needles with me (Utah is much high than Oregon). I have a complete set of jets and it's currently jetted for Eugene, Oregon.
The majority of parts and tech support came from Hurricane Performance (HP) in Prescott, Ontario. HP builds 700hp to 800hp snowmobiles based on the R1 engine. HP was recommended by CP Carillo and proved to be a real asset during this project.
The turbocharger is made by Garret with a TiAL stainless case, TiAL BOV and wastegate. The pistons and h-beam conrods were made by CP Carillo. There are no cheap parts in this engine. The cam timing was changed from 105 degrees (factory) to 114 degrees for the turbo. The pistons (10 to 1), head bolts, conrods and valves are setup for 35 lbs of boost.
The engine can be seen running at
The exhaust wrap is drying in the video and I forgot to turn on the scavenge pump, so it's smoking a little bit in the video.
