Yamaha's 07-08 R1 - one of the sweetest handing, best looking literbikes ever made.

After a lot of work, we finally developed set of billet stacks that makes better Peak HP than the stock Yamaha 2 piece stacks and also, better than the GYT racing stacks.

High velocity, Gen 2, Mini-Liptical stacks.

We have all learned that each bike, even with the same aftermarket parts, requires different mapping than it's identical twin bike. That's why when someone  "downloads the perfect map" off of some website for a pc or Bazzaz, that it only has a 10% chance of being perfect "on YOUR bike".
With 35+ years of tuning experience, Factory Pro knows that the key to silky smooth and strong  running is individualized, perfect tuning on each bike - That's why we do tuning for people all over the west coast and Nevada.

Factory Pro Superflare Billet Stacks
Optimal "Mini-liptical" inlet radius

 3-5 True HP - peak and upper midrange NO RETUNING
Better throttle response
Eliminate laggy stock YCC-I adj. stack action

Peak hp w stock stacks: 149.9 True HP @ 13,000 indicated rpm. Peak with Gen 2 stacks: 152.6 True HP. 3 peak HP and 4 at 13,000 rpm.

As you can see, removing the "adjustable" stock stacks and substituting improved "fixed" stacks produces better lowend, upper mid and peak power.
For performance use, Yamaha YEC also removed the adjustable stacks and uses fixed stacks.
By building on our research experience with our R6, the 98-01 R1 and  the 04-06 R1 stacks and Xxxxxx Racing, we were able to create a subtly unique combination of inlet taper angles and radii that work very well - increasing intake charging to a higher degree - which equals more power produced.

The above chart is on one bike - We did another bike with similar peak results, except that power on the second bike was about 3-4 hp better at 8k instead of 2-3 hp..

They both still had that little dippy thing at 9k - the "average" horsepower across the rpm band was still a lot better than stock adj. stacks.
The 9k spot is where the fuel gets a bit rich (see the little bump "up" right below the word "multiply") and I'd expect that most or all of that dip would go away with a Teka 4 or PC3 that was properly tuned.

The BLUE test is the BASE with stock stacks  and the RED is the FP V Stacks. UNTUNED
It's 3  to 5 True HP better from 11,000 to 13,000

Peak hp w stock stacks:
149.9 True HP
Peak with Gen 2 stacks:
152.6 True HP.
(for dynojet hp, multiply True HP x 1.1 to 1.2)

 3 total "peak to peak"  HP and 4 hp better at at 13,000 rpm.
(it's new peak hp 1000 rpm earlier than stock, i.e., pulls harder earlier)

These R1 stacks are the new 2010 Factory Pro Design "Mini Liptical" profile.
New Gen 2, Mini Liptical profiles develop even smoother airflow for  better ram charging during the intake stroke. Higher velocity means potentially higher dynamic compression and that means...
Best Power.

Ttesting was performed on Jeff Viets (Viets  Performance)  trackday R1 with:
 "race baffle" slipon, stock engine (just like your stock bike), stock air filter and a TEKA 4 or pc3 with an "all stock map".

These are TRUE, STEADY STATE, Fully loaded dyno tests - To get dynojet hp, multiply True HP x 1.1 to 1.2.
These are NOT, dealership level, simplistic "4th gear wacks".
"4th gear wacks" are likely to deliver different results - "4th gear wacks" don't simulate the real world very well, and that's what is holding back many of the auto and mc industry from progressing. Ever wonder why most of the automotive chip guys, like Diablosport, bailed out of dj car dynos? Poor dyno loading = poor tuning for the real world. Same with most of the Nascar guys that I've talked to.

We also tested both the 55mm and 65mm $790 usd YEC stacks - Like many oem "race kit" v stacks,  they are not designed for a stock engine - They are likely a beneficial addition if you have a YEC engine - but not a stock engine. (and I really mean that they "don't work well" on a stock engine!)

Feedback 07-08 R1 Stacks

10x man
power u definitely feel it on low u it kind the same on middle then it get better on top speed i think it is one off the best upgrade and power feel for the money

Dhalia Maroun  7 November 2010

The stacks are definite improvement over the stock YCC-I set up, Not only is the idle smoother,  the boost in power is very noticeable above the 8k mark. Having run the stacks at Willow Springs I noticed an improvement in power exiting turn 9 at around a hundred mph at 3/4 throttle, twist to 100% throttle and the bike feels like a turbo kicks in. It is not violent power, in fact it is smooth controllable power all the way to redline. when you cut power there is no lag or violent drop in power either, i am also running one less spring plate in the clutch for less engine braking and the stacks have helped lessen the rather violent engine braking. My belief is, the shape and the fact that they are no longer controlled by the ECU. (only speculation)

This is the first time i have had the stacks in one of my own bikes, and I wish I had not waited this long to run a set. I can say the stacks would have greatly improved the fueling on my 929 and made it a bit more controllable. I have ridden other bikes,( 05 GSX_R 1000, 03 YZF R1, 04 ZX-6, DUCATI 999 ) with v-stacks from yosh, graves, etc.
None of the bikes were ever as smooth as my Factory Pro stack equipped R1 - nor was I able to notice a power jump with violent action from the rear tire with the other bikes.

On the street, well, lets say the transition is so much better around town and on the freeways, I find I have to really scan my clocks to ensure I stay. at....err, legal speed.
I transition from a 45mph road to freeway speeds to get to work......well, before,  with the stock v-stacks, the powerband was noticeable in the hills and valleys of the fueling, you could actually feel a drop in the mid range, almost like the bike was too rich, but now the transition in mid range is much better and the bike will be at 90 mph without a noticeable sag in power, just a smooth climb until 100mph then you can actually feel, I mean "feel" the extra power come on.

If you own an 07-08 R1, you would be a fool not to use these stacks in your build up of the bike. I am sure that others are going to say that the YEC or Graves are the better........If i had a Graves built bike or a YEC motor then yeah i would run those, however, they do not allow themselves the smoothness or the flexibility for those of us that can not afford "race" engines. These are the best for the average "street" rider with bolt on mods from the books.

Thanks Marc, see ya on July 5th.

Normal hand tools
1/4 or 3/8 socket set
5mm allen wrench

Easier than replacing spark plugs and slightly more involved than changing an air filter

  1. Remove airbox top.

  2. Unbolt stock upper stacks.

  3. Remove original stack linkages.

  4. Unscrew  6 lower stack mounting screws.

  5. Remove the stock stacks.

  6. Save all old parts.

  7. Outside of the airbox, assemble two new stacks (short stack to outside) into a mount bracket (with the bracket properly oriented).

  8. Place the Factory Pro stacks and bracket into the airbox, aligning the stacks to the throttle bodies and the 3 mounting holes to the throttle body mounting holes.

  9.  Put a drop of MILD Loctite (not "red") on each screw and Insert the stock allen screws into the bracket holes. If a screw were to come out., it would be very bad for your engine. USE LOCTITE.

  10. Gently hand snug, then, tighten to 6 ft lbs  / 8 nm torque, using a crisscross pattern - The bracket should be perfectly level when you properly tighten it.

  11. Repeat for the other 2 stacks.

  12. Reassemble airbox lid, etc.

  13. The ECU won't light the FI light, but a diagnostic mode dash scan may show that the stack servo motor is not functioning.

Install Stacks

Yamaha ysf1000 R1, 07-08
Factory Pro Velocity Stacks installation hints

We'll start with the assumption that you already can competently remove the fuel tank and replace an air filter. If you aren't confident that you can do that, stop right now and get an experienced friend or pay a good shop...........

Remove airbox top.

Unbolt stock upper stacks.

Remove original stack linkages. The primary round actuating arm pops off the flat arm on the servo motor.
The flat arm has a round ball that pops into a plastic socket on the round arm.
You can leave the servo motor in place (it's really not a "servo", it's only an open / close 12 volt solenoid).

Unscrew  6 lower stack mounting screws.

Remove the stock stacks;.

Remove original velocity stack bolts.

They press out. Model mechanic is using the handle of a Bondhus Balldriver.

Save all old parts.

There is a Right and a Left flat bracket. CHECK NOW to make sure you have 2 different brackets.

Place 2 of the Factory Pro stacks and 1 bracket into the airbox, aligning the stacks to the throttle bodies and the 3 mounting holes to the throttle body mounting holes.

The longer "100" stack goes into the middle and shorter "85" to the outside.

Repeat for the other two stacks and bracket.

Put a drop of MILD Loctite (blue or green - not "red") on each screw and Insert the 3 stock mounting screws into the bracket holes. If a screw were to come out, it would be very bad for your engine.    USE LOCTITE

Use a magnet to lower the screws into the installed bracket holes, unless you have very long fingers.

Gently hand snug, then, tighten to 6 ft lbs  / 8 nm torque, using a 120 crisscross pattern.

Repeat for the other 2 stacks.


Reassemble airbox lid, etc. Use your Service manual to make sure you don't forget anything

So - the hard part, installing the stacks, is done.

Yes - we always suggest that you use a Genuine Yamaha Service Manual. It's the LAST WORD.

With new Superflare
tm stacks -  Is fuel injection retuning needed?

We did the R1 Superflaretm R&D with a properly tuned stock R1. We did no additional fuel injection mapping during R1 stack R&D.

The added power that we got in the upper mid and peak was due to the stacks alone.

Factory Pro Velocity Stacks work primarily by increasing the engine's dynamic compression - kind of like milling the cylinder head or slightly higher compression pistons over a range of desired rpm ranges. Increasing compression doesn't require big fuel changes. Dynamic compression is different from cranking compression. Dynamic compression is essentially cranking compression + extra air that gets trapped in the combustion chamber as a result of proper intake tract (velocity stack) length, intake cam closing and also the effects of the exhaust systems in a RUNNING engine.
Dynamic compression effects are also related to rpm ranges - as intake ram charging; commonly occurs strongest over a 3000 to 3500 rpm range. (usually....)

Could you get better performance if custom mapping for the stacks?
Well, yes and maybe no.
If you tune your R1 "to an air fuel ratio" on a dealership level dyno, you are virtually guaranteed to miss some potential power in the real world.

To put it another way, drop them on a stock engined bike and woohoo.
Tune it to an "af ratio" on a dealership level dyno and MAYBE less woohoo.

Proper tuning requires that the engine be tuned to Best Power and Engine Smoothness. There is potentially a difference of 2-4 True HP s compared to "af ratio".

The extension of the laboratory for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940). He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal use but well preserved.
