October/November 2010

Mr. Yagi's NSR was previously featured earlier this year and after photographing pictures of it, his bike went through a huge transformation and now looks as it is now. 169K - Click for full size image

He wanted a whole new look for his bike and shopped around locally (here in Japan) and came across this RS type upper fairing cowl in light weight fiberglass with a matching lower light weight fairing with added extensions around the exhaust area for that authentic old school GP look
This particular rear seat is a one off hand made piece in fiberglass, it is much lighter, smaller and boxier than the OEM Honda seat. The design of this seat allows the removal of the seat subframe and is built with extra thick construction to make up for the lack of the stock seat subframe. Mr. Yagi slightly modified the rear of the seat to fit his tiny (barely legal) brake light and turn signal combination. The new front upper fairing was modified to fit this projector type light. A new RS style racing screen was added. 200K - Click for full size image

The brakes also came from the RVF400 which feature slightly larger disc rotors (296mm). The wheels are the stock type NSR SP mag tek wheels all around. The brakes have been upgraded with Brembo rotors and rebuilt calipers with new sport pads and steel braided lines front and back.
Other upgrades are the new Harc-Pro stainless racing pipes with carbon silencers. The stock carb box was modified for improved air intake and also covered in a carbon fiber looking material for that exotic racing look. The entire frame was polished to a mirror finish. 143K - Click for full size image

The paint was handled by Mr. Yagi himself. He is a big fan of the late Daijiro Katoh GP rider and champion. His bike was based on these colors of his bike. Custom decals were ordered by a local shop and Mr. Yagi painted the bike himself. 178K - Click for full size image

Mr. Yagi is still not finished with his amazing NSR and more plans on are their way.

Usually every month I try to feature a different NSR in this section. Recently it has become a bimonthly feature due to time restrictions and a lack of material. Above you can check out the featured Bike of the Month and past Bikes of the Month. Do you think your NSR belongs here ? Then send a few pictures and some information and maybe we can feature it here. Mail me here. Cheers !!
