R&D High Performance ECU Reprogramming Services
Part #802-02803 R&D R3 ECU; Reprogrammed ECU offers a higher degree of ignition timing map advancements that produce quicker acceleration and top speed performance. The fuel maps are tuned to offer a cleaner than stock (leaner idle), clean and green cruise areas which will keep fuel consumption either the same or better than stock in the cruising ranges, improved hard acceleration enrichment for the hard core rider that want a more aggressive mid-range acceleration, and an overall improvement to top speed or wide open throttle ranges. The rev limiter is raised to allow 8450 RPM’s that will promote a more positive pump hook up in rough water conditions. The R3 ECU programs are 91octane (pump fuel) safe. The R3 ECU program can be used with R&D Stage 3 kits.

R&D Pro Flow Air Filter Kit
The R&D Power Plenum Filter Kit will add low end and mid range performance by replacing the restrictive flame arrester system with a high flow, high velocity air filter/velocity stack design combination! R&D Performance filters have been dyno tested on 4-stroke watercraft engines to in excess of 300 H.P.! R&D Power Plenum Filter Kits install quickly and easily, and add a great high performance sound!

R&D Aquavein Intake Grate
The R&D Yamaha VXR/VX HO Aquavein Intake Grate Kit has been designed and developed to deliver the ultimate handling and top speed performance in recreational, offshore, and closed course race conditions. The R&D Aquavein will produce maximum pump hook up with noticeably quicker acceleration, higher top speed performance and a much smoother and more predictable ride over the OEM intake grate in rough water conditions. * For proper installation R&D recommends the use of the R&D Pump Shoe Seal Kit (Pt. # 162-00023)
Pt. # 112-18005 Aquavein
Pt. # 162-00023 Pump Shoe Seal Kit

R&D Sponson Kit
The R&D Yamaha VXR/VX HO Sponson Kit was developed to deliver improved handling stability and much smoother top speed performance averages in recreational, offshore, and closed course race conditions. The kit also reduces chine walking in hard 90° and 180° turns, and is super stable at high top speeds! The R&D Sponson works exceptionally well “2 Up” (Passenger)! No other sponson works better, or is more versatile in all areas! The R&D sponson kit is a unique design that adapts an additional “Deeper Race Fin” blade that assembles and mates between the oemsponson and the hull. The “Race Fin” has proven to outperform all other sponson kits on the VXR! Race Proven in closed course with multiple wins in regional and World Finals competition, as well as Dominating and winning the 2018 Mark Hahn 300 on the 85+ MPH R&D Turbo Machine of Mike Klippenstein!

R&D Recreational Engine Cooling Kit-Single line
The R&D FX HO Yamaha Recreational Engine Cooling Kit was developed for high performance recreational uses where the O.E.M. thermostat will remain and be used. The R&D recreational cooling kit offers an additional ˝’ water line to offer 25 percent more additional water volume flow through the engine and oil cooler as well as slightly increase water pressure. The O.E.M. cooling system has a very low water pressure (10 P.S.I. at 7600 rpm’s) and a low water volume flow. The new R&D kit will lower engine block and head temperatures by 15-20 degrees. R&D suggests adding additional cooling system upgrades to compensate and lower engine temperatures when installing aftermarket ECU’s with timing advancements and various performance part upgrades. The R&D Cooling Kit arrives 100 percent complete with pre-cut hoses, “T” connectors, dual line pump block, through hull bulkhead fittings, hose clamps, and detailed instructions with pictures. R&D recommends the cooling system to be upgraded as a stand alone performance upgrade and a must have kit addition when riding in extreme air and water temperatures.

• Better throttle response, increased horsepower
• Cooler header and under seat temperatures
• Cooler cylinder and cylinder head will reduce knock
• Cooler oil will lubricate better and last longer
• Increased engine protection

R&D High Flow Exhaust Kit
The R&D High Flow Exhaust Kit will add noticeably to low end and midrange power, as well as add top end performance! The R&D kit works to allow the complete removal of all plastic sound suppression boxes and hoses known to fatigue and often melt down in high performance kit applications! The R&D High Flow Exhaust Kit will add a great performance sound while maintaining a safe and under IJSBA and Coast Guard approved 86 db! Constructed from high-temperature silicon. The R&D Kit also outperforms hose and outlet kits that require cutting and drilling of the hull! The R&D Kit allows also easily converting 100 percent back to stock! Why “Cut and Hack” when you can Bolt and Go!
