So I went to my local Yamaha dealer for the launch of the R1 and R1M the other night and this happened. I could not believe what I was seeing but yeah it happened. Seems like the mechanic at the dealer had to fit the full Arrow system shortly before the launch and somehow got the oil cooler pipe pushed against the headers..needless to say the header burnt through the pipe and caused this spectacular puff of smoke..check.it out.

I always shake my head when I see bikes and cars running inside buildings. But yea that looked embarrassing for sure.
Sums up the whole model launch pretty much. :lol
:shake, absolutely classic
You can jump to 1:10 for the smoking to start. :crash
