I finally got around to installing the clutch mod parts and decided to make a video as I did it.


This is basically the Graves clutch kit, but purchased as OEM Yamaha parts individually instead of the kit, but it's the same thing. The gasket and YEC clutch springs are optional, but I like to have a fresh gasket and the springs were a nice touch.

The Basics: Replace the last stock friction plate with the seat, spring, and friction plate below (from the 2008 R1) for a smoother clutch feel and to get rid of the abrupt grab of the 2009+ stock clutch.

Part Numbers and approximate prices:
(from the 2008 R1)
4B1-16383-00-00 SPRING, CLUTCH BOSS $25.56
5VY-16384-00-00 PLATE, SEAT $3.81
5VY-16331-00-00 PLATE, FRICTION 2 $10.60

(from the 2009 R1)
14B-15461-00-00 GASKET, CRANKCASE COVER 2 $11.02

(From anyone who sells YEC parts)
4B1-A6330-70 CLUTCH SPRING SET (YEC) $99.99

Ok, that's good to know. I thought so but I wasn't positive if they made any clutch changes when they added the traction control. I'll try to clarify that in the video when I get back to my PC. Mine is a 2009 so I wanted to cover my butt just in case the 2012 was changed.

Awesome thread. Great video. I've wanted to do this on my 12 forever but have never done anything clutch related before so I was hesitant. Now I might tackle it. And the Yamaha parts you listed are actually cheaper then graves kit.Thank you

upgrading to a proper slipper clutch does wonders as well, they do come stock with 'bragging rights' :sneaky :lol
