Hey guys,

I have a 2009 r1 and the bike was laid down by the previous owner. I needed to replace the stay. I heard two aftermarket companies were good, Yana shiki, and "moto brackets"

I went with yana shiki, and here's what i found:

I bought it off ebay. The listing said "Yana Shiki Upper Stay For Yamaha YZF-R1 2009-2012" the part number was YS890. A quick google and yana shiki's 2009 r1 bracket is also YS890. The box says YS890. I dismantle my bike and go to install it, and hit this road block...

one has a slot , and one doesn't. (oem on right yana on left)


Well whats that for? Where the stay connects to the fork head.


They also left paint on the "ground screw" for the gauge cluster

I modified my stay a little bit to make it fit, and the holes don't line up either.


So, this either isn't the stay for this bike (even though everything else lines up perfectly), or they just forgot to do a "couple" things.

Another example of fleabay crap... sellers can say anything they want to sell their crap and YOU believed it. :shake

Don't buy from fleabay! :fact

You say fleabay crap, but my nearest shop recommended the Yana shiki stay also....
The OP doesn't even know if it's a real Yana Shiki stay or if it's actually for his bike. That's what I was getting at. :yesnod

Why people go to fleabay to try and save a couple of dollars is beyond me when you can go to a reputable seller and buy the real deal. :fact

It was a reputable seller with good feedback. The box is yana shiki, and has a yana shiki label on it.

The Alpinestars gloves from ebay come with Alpinestars logos and Alpinestars tags, but that don't make them Alpinestars. The Chinese will rip off anything and us stupid ass Americans keep supporting it.

So I just talked to yana shiki and they confirmed it was theirs, and said that none of the 09 r1 stays have the cutout for that "nub." Pretty big fail.

Bought a few yana shiki products and they've been sub par (ill fitting and/or broken from manufacturing)
