That's because they lie about performance on their bikes. First post?

Hmmm up 6.7%?



17,500 minus 6.7% = 16,327



Coincidence?

How much will be left after CARB gets done sueing them for the noncompliant bikes. Of course if they went after industrial poluters they could just buy their way out with credits for having some old cars that aren't used crushed.

Ya - thats a good point. Yamaha has always been a leader in the industry but if you figure the CARB issue and the lie about the 6R - they are covering up losses.

Listen, all's you need to do to get 17,500 rpm is go to yamah-racing.com and order up the race kit black box—enough already. I attribute excellent sales to excellent advertising...

Some guys from Honda tried to ask Valentino Rossi what his redline is, but they couldn't get close enough to ask him.
