The R&D ignition system relocation mount kit relocates the ECU, relays, solenoid box, and slant detector to the back left side of the hull. Relocating the ignition system allows the transom to be completely cut to the transom wall to approximately 2” above drive shaft bearing carrier. The R&D Re-locator Kit allows for a true factory racer finish that organizes the electrical system and cleans up the entire engine room compartment.

Flywheel/Stator Cover Oil Drain Fitting

R&D offers a Modified OEM Flywheel cover with custom recirculating Turbo Oil Drain System, or customer can send in their flywheel cover for shop service to install the custom Turbo Oil Drain. This is a gravity fed system that will return oil back to the crankcase without back pressure.

Crankcase Ventilation System

R&D’s Crankcase Ventilation System offers a solution to relocating and modifying OEM crankcase breather box assembly on 2009-2010 model engines, and also works on 2014 and up models without breather boxes. The R&D kit serves two purposes; it blocks off the supercharger mounting area, as well as offers more than double crankcase ventilation. All 2009 and up Yamaha engines can benefit from improved crankcase ventilation to reduce or eliminate high crankcase pressures. This system properly ventilates the engine to keep the oil from migrating out of the motor.
