SUPERBIKE Yamaha YZF R7 OW02 Noriyuki Haga WSBK SBK .avi
Toymans Superbikegarage. My YZF R7 OW02 been standing still to long, I did start it up yestersday but there was a small problem with the fuelinjection. Wanted to se if the new Aspen fuel had made some cleaning during the night. And it had it was running much better. Next try will be with some Racing Aspen fuel! Tonys Toymans Superbikecollection The Yamaha YZF-R7 OW02 is a race homologation motorcycle of limited production run of only 500 units. It was designed to compete in the Superbike World Championship and Suzuka 8 Hours endurance races. It has a 749 cc (45.7 cubic inches), 20-valve (5 valves per cylinder) inline-four engine DOHC producing 107 hp (80 kW), or 139 hp (104 kW) when the other, unused bank of fuel injectors is activated, and over 162 hp (120 kW) in race trim. The R7 was built for racing 'out of the box', implied by the chassis, which was derived from information and geometry from the YZR500 machines of the period. The R7 was specified with Öhlins suspension components, a shortened Deltabox II frame and weight of just slightly over the 162 kg (360 lb) minimum of superbike regulations. The intentions of the R7 were further underlined, with its designation of "OW-02" and the lack of any pillion/passenger provision. Presented by Toymans Superbikegarage. Privat Collection

10 years after its launch, we've finally ridden it. Revealed in 2002, the Foggy FP1 was set to spawn a superbike dynasty to rival Ducati. The first 150 road bikes were built, but never ridden. Until now... MCN got the chance to ride a road FP1 in Switzerland thanks to owner Livio Kagi.

Top 5 Mistakes about riding motorcycles
Visit the new Website of Racer TV: www.becaferacer.com (Legendado em Português) After seeing so many different videos on youtube with people riding motorcycles, i found several issues that should be known. That's why i decided to make this video, which may be very useful for many other riders. Here you will find the 5 most common mistakes i found till now. Most of them are more technical, and not so much about riding experience. In the end of the video, you will know also the cause of one of the most mysterious phenomenons about motorcycles. The Mystery of side tire wear. Enjoy. My special thanks to Pedro Torres, for his great help with my english. Some of the video footage in the video, is courtesy from the following youtube Channels, which are licensed as creative commons content: Chewie Meatball : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_0XZg4eMI4 GoParis : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqWQVP6qDs4 TheAdventureProne : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3zp2g2-vo8 Information about the lack of proper riding gear. 1- This is a video about riding mistakes, not about safety mistakes. 2- The only riding gear legally mandatory in my Country, is the helmet. 3- The usage of Gloves, Jacket, or proper boots , is only a personal choice, although very recommendable on long trips. 4- Most riding clips in this video were shooted in a very hot day, and in small trips of no more than 3 Km of distance. 5- I usually use leather gloves, even in hot days. I tried to shoot these videos with my black leather gloves, but the movements of the hands and fingers were almost unnoticeable for the camera, and that's why i didn't wear them. 6- In most south european countries(like Portugal), it's perfectly normal to ride with casual clothing in short distance trips. Conclusion. The usage of proper riding gear is recommendable, but is still a personal choice(except helmet), and each one of us has the right of using it, or not. Cheers.
