R1 Wiring Harness

I spoke to Rossen Racing today in my search for my r1 motor. They did not have any but he was talking to me about the harness modifications.

Have any of you guys used Rossen for anything? He seemed very knowlegable about these motors. They charge $250 to modify the harness and get rid of all the unnecessary wiring. That includes adding a ignition switch and wiring and labeling for the fuel pump, radiator fan, light for neutral,ect.

He was also mentioning that i might just want to go without using the r1 gauges and have him wire it up to use a mechanical oil pressure gauge and water temp gauge. I thought i read somewhere on the 07-08 you need to use the stock gauges otherwise you can have some issues.

If everything goes through with a deal i have going, i will have my 07 r1 motor on monday or tuesday. Cant wait

I have also heard good things about Barker Racing. Only advantage to rossen is they are down in Ramona less than 2 hrs from me. That way if i have any problems i can take it there without too much trouble. I think Barker is in NY. Im going to stay away from Peter D after Stetlers mishap.

run the OEM gauge cluster no matter what. You have to use the cluster to access all the codes and adjust your settings. such as the throttle control sensors, the rev limiter, the shift light, the idle range, and many other things

Chris from Benchmark suggested Rosson to me. I called him and got some good info (for free) when I was working on my harness.

He was very helpful. He also has some really trick parts.

Jeff from Barker Racing is awesome! Done a couple for us, no problems.

If only someone had a standalone harness, all mill spec weatherproof wiring etc instead of a hacked up stock harness with electrical tape and loom wrap. Hint Hint... Weller's

i heard Yamaha sells a "race harness" that is a stock wiring harness without all of the crap. i never found a part number but i bet a big Yamaha sponsored shop could help out.

They are hard to find. And they still have a lot of crap. Cheaper to mod a regular harness I think. There was a 02-30 for sale recently that came with a Yamaha Race harness.

Not sure what all the fuss is about modifying the harnesses...it's not like stripping them down is going to save so much weight that performance will be improved - not when you are talking about 130hp!

We don't do much to our harnesses - we actually leave quite a bit on them....for lights, for brake lights, for guages, sensors, etc....there are a few you don't need, and some that need a little mofication, etc....but it's not a huge job. If you ever want to dune or do something besides racing, it's nice to leave those connectors in place.

I don't even run an instrument cluster on my 02/03....although, if I got an 07 or 08, I probably would - so much electronics on those ones.

I run all mech/elec gauges in mine, but left the factory dash wires loop'd under the dash for checking any codes that I might get. Shane was my motor builder when I ran the California Lightning Sprints, and he built or tuned about 90% of the cars in the club. He has numerous wins and championships to his credit, and has been awarded motorbuilder of the year a couple times by various clubs. He does know these motors inside and out. I would and do recommend him anytime I can, due to my past dealings with him.

Just my .02

I did my own harness too, 05. Not a big deal. I left just about everything, and will be running the stock gauge (Its already been worth it for diagnostics).
