Yamaha knows that champions win on the highest quality competition parts, and Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing (GYTR) combines top-level knowledge from the Yamaha Racing R&D with decades of Grand Prix experience to give to motocross riders high performance in the heaviest racetrack conditions without forsaking engine durability.
For new and overhauled YZ125 two-stroke production engines, the new GYTR YZ125 High Performance Kit represents the ultimate and powerful racing edge.
The 2016 release includes a GYTR cylinder head with detachable combustion chamber inserts, a GYTR ported cylinder with pre-installed oil seals on the exhaust valve shaft for improved port airflow and the GYTR YZ125 piston, made from unique materials for a profile that is completely different than the standard piston option.
Also new in the 2016 YZ125 High Performance kit is a carbon fiber VForce reed valve air intake system for better throttle response, a GYTR exhaust pipe for well-balanced performance in both the middle and high RPM ranges, and a titanium GYTR silencer maximized for power and durability.
Finally the kit includes a GYTR CDI with the latest 2016 map, a magneto rotor unit with higher inertia mass for more torque, and a carburetor setting set for adjustments in changing weather, elevation and track conditions.
Yamaha rider Maxime Renaux won the 2015 MX Junior Championship on a YZ125 starting from the high performance kit parts, now it can be your turn to follow Maxime into the paddock and on to the track!
