Yoshimura- a look under the skin.

I am going to upload a few pics of Roger and Toni's race bikes. These were taken during the 2016 season.
The Yosh bikes are very slick.

This week- the rear seat.

It might be fun to do a part ID here.

Sticking with only the parts on the rear subframe:
MagMar IMU
Carbon/Kevlar SBK spec tail section
Billet subframe
Color/coded seat risers

Re: Yoshimura- a look under the skin.

Ah, IMU. I was trying to figure what that was. I see something under left side of the seat cowl as well. A yellowish square. A battery for the sensor assembly perhaps?

What is a MagMar IMU? Sounds like something I need on my bike along with all that other stuff you listed.

Re: Yoshimura- a look under the skin.

MagMar = Magneti Marelli. Hard to tell but it might be their Marvel 4.5, which isn't their best. I have no info on their IMUs. It's not for you unless you're ready to make a huge investment.

P.S. I see that it includes an output for trumpet (velocity stack) control like Yamaha uses. It's expensive but I've always thought that it was the way to go instead of the dual stacks that Yoshimura and Cougar Red offer.

Re: Yoshimura- a look under the skin.

Do. Work.

The cockpit is always the most interesting area of the bike for me, personally. Again, the details are fascinating. Yosh spends a lot of time making sure that everything has a purpose.
Very impressive.

Re: Yoshimura- a look under the skin.

Those are nice!! I took close up pic's of Matt Mladin's and Ben Spies bikes back in 2007 at the paddock of Laguna Seca. They had all kinds shit on their bikes. Sensors every where.

Re: Yoshimura- a look under the skin.

The remote brake adjuster knob and pedestal keep changing from year to year. I don't understand why they haven't found an optimum design and settled on it by now.

Who makes that clutch lever?

Good point- I wonder why that is? The switchgear is from the same vendor for years, as is the radiator, triple clamps, etc...
I dont know who makes the levers tho.

Re: Yoshimura- a look under the skin.

Today, another look under the skin. The forks, brakes, and so on.

Radiator by Febur (I think). While MB supplies a large number of teams, Febur has been around longer, and are fantastic pieces.
The Brembo calipers are the top of the line for steel discs.
No idea what the fork coating is here- it looks similar to what the works KYB forks ran for many years. Maybe @BillV knows what this is.
