YAMAHA YZF-R3 ('15-'18)

Design v.2 (high brake pedal)

SATO RACING 'Race Concept'-edition Rear Sets are pure, no-compromise racing rear sets designed for track-only bikes.

'Race Concept' Rear Sets (design v.2) for 2015-18 Yamaha YZF-R3 (along with the non-US YZF-R25 and MT-03) are made especially for bikes that have a custom or aftermarket exhaust that is higher than stock, and could possibly interfere with brake actuation if installed with our original (design v.1) R3 Race Concept Rear Sets, so to solve this potential issue, these 'Version 2' Rear Sets have a brake pedal that is mounted inline with the foot peg, instead of mounted on a separate axis below it, as with the v.1 design. Other than that difference, these Rear Sets are identical in spec to our popular track-proven original design.

Both models of
Race Concept Rear Sets for the R3 are precision CNC-machined from high strength anodized billet aluminum (choice of Black with Gold accents, or Gold with Black base plates), and feature a modular design lets you select from 7 adjustable positions in an aggressive range that can bring your feet up to 85mm higher and 70mm further back compared to stock, to help you achieve the kind of riding position well-suited to the fast straights and steep lean angles you may encounter on the track. These Rear Sets can be set up for either stock shift pattern or reverse (GP style) shift pattern.

NOTE: Not recommended for street use. Not compatible with stock brake light switch sensor. For the standard (non-ABS) model only.

For more 'street'-friendly Rear Sets, see our standard R3 Rear Sets.

The shift and brake pedals utilize double stainless bearings for smooth, precise pedal movement.
Gold-anodized aluminum Pedal Tips with fluted rubber grips are standard with these Rear Sets.

The Brake Pedal is mounted on the same axis as the foot peg, which gives the pedal an additional inch of lower clearance compared to our 'version 1' R3 Race Concept Rear Sets. This can be useful in some situations, particularly if you have an aftermarket exhaust that comes up higher than stock and you want to use the lowest rearset position.

Modular design allows repositioning of the entire Rear Set assembly by moving the 2 bolts on
the base plate.   The shift pedal has multiple adjustment points for fine-tuning the shifter feel.

Knurled Foot Pegs provide nice grip, along with a comfortable, intuitive feel.
For reverse (GP) shift pattern, flip the stock change arm the opposite direction.
