2012 Yamaha Features and Benefits

Ultra-lightweight, 998cc, DOHC, 16-valve, 40 degree inclined, in-line engine with “crossplane” crankshaft.

The key components of this edge engine design are the crankshaft and an uneven firing Both of these features are on Yamaha’s championship winning M1 racer. Please note … is not a “big bang” engine. The R1 from the norm for in-line 4 engines and the 180 degree alignment of the pins (where the connecting attach to the crankshaft), and locates the two rods at a 90 degree plane the outer cylinders.

This instead of the crank pins on the same plane (a straight drawn through the center of the they align on 2 planes in the of a cross … or “crossplane”. Working in with the crossplane crank is an firing order. A traditional 4 cylinder’s firing order is 1,2,4,3 with a 180 degree This R1 engine fires cylinders and the firing intervals are at 270 / 180/ 90 /180 degrees.

all this means to the rider is the linear torque possible and throttle control. This design allows a whole new of rider – machine communication. One of the important benefits is the outstanding performance that increased control allows.

The engineering for the R1 is controllability … not just an increase in If that was the case, we could simply increased the power of the existing engine design in a peaky, hard to use power

The 4-valve cylinder head features a compact combustion that utilizes lightweight, titanium valves on the intake The 4-valve design maximizes efficiency and overall engine

The titanium intake valves are in diameter while the steel valves are 25mm in diameter. yet super strong VX alloy springs control valve

Steep valve angles, degrees on the intake side and degrees on the exhaust produce a combustion chamber.

The lightweight intake valves reduce the weight of the intake valves for higher rpms without the of valve float. The use of lightweight valves has allowed the engineers at to use a 4-valve format. In the past, the use of 5 valves allowed a higher rpm since each of the “smaller” was relatively light.

The use of light titanium now means the engineers no have to use the 5-valve design to the same high rpms.

chambers have been for maximum engine performance. The ratio is 12.7:1.

Compact cam chain tensioner reduces maintenance and mechanical engine

Short skirt, forged pistons offer light fast throttle response and reliability.

Crossplane crankshaft 36mm journals for increased while the inertial moment of the has been increased by 20% versus the generation R1.

Connecting rods are and use a nut less design. The lower end of the rod is made from the same of material as the upper portion and is away in a process known as splitting”. This process true big end roundness and greater in con rod dimensions.

Ceramic composite “bores” are a “liner less” with the ceramic coating directly to the aluminium block to uniform heat dissipation for power delivery, reduced oil reduced friction and reduced

Closed deck cylinder allows the cylinders to be spaced closely together, allowing a engine.

The cylinder block is a piece (not integrated the upper crank case). The is reduced weight and a less engine which lowers the of gravity.

A “coupling force is used to quell engine for excellent rider comfort.

ACM (alternator) is mounted directly to the The compact ACM uses rare magnets which produce power for a given size conventional magnets, therefore size and weight.

Revised fuel injection system twin injectors (one set of one set of secondary injectors). This of twin injector system is used on our M1 MotoGP race and the R6. One set of injectors (primary) are located in the throttle bodies while the injectors are located in the air box very the computer controlled intake

The revised primary injectors 4 spray holes to maximize the atomization process. The secondary located inside the air box, to function at mid rpms onwards to more fuel as required.

The F.I. system features dual track TPS (throttle sensor) and APS (accelerator position sensors

An oxygen sensor is into the exhaust collector this a “closed loop” FI system, which feeds info to the ECU so adjustments can be constantly to the fuel-air mixture for improved and reduced emissions.

The benefits of injection include excellent response, great fuel reduced emissions, stable and no choke to fuss with start up.

The fuel injection’s Electronic Control Unit utilizes a powerful 32-bit for fast control of the injection The compact design also weight.

YCC-I or Yamaha’s Controlled Intake means the funnels / stacks vary in (2 positions) depending on engine An electronic servo motor the funnel length from the position at low to mid rpms to the shorter for improved high rpm power. The rpm between the 2 lengths is approx. rpms.

The revolutionary YCC-I the best of both worlds low rpm torque and power combined an amazing high rpm rush. It only 0.3 of a second for the funnels to from the tall to the short

Yamaha’s exclusive YCC-I servo motor-driven variable funnel system is a world’s 1st on a motorcycle and works in conjunction Yamaha’s fly-by-wire technology and FI

Yamaha Chip Control (YCC-T) electronically controls the valves for outstanding response and controllability at all rpms. The YCC-T is to provide even more of the intake air volume for smoother character. Similar to the R6 design, the features 3 – ECU’s inside the ECU to control ignition, fuel and the YCC-T.

This special ECU is of responding to changes at a speed of of a second.

The rider can “mechanically the throttles by simply closing the twist grip.

All new 6 mode control system features an off as well. This MotoGP system limits or eliminates wheel slippage or slide on the chosen mode. This uses front and rear sensors to detect slip and adjusts / regulates via the ECU the throttle (YCC-T), fuel injection and timing to control slip.

The is activated using a switch on the LHS gear. Each mode a different level of slip
