GYTR - Adventure

Yamaha’s philosophy with GYTR – Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing - is always to take the research and development work carried out by our official race teams and use this to make the highest specification performance parts available to any Yamaha owner.

GYTR parts have all been developed through use on our race bikes as our teams strive for victory at the highest level. And now, following the success of Yamaha Rally Team, GYTR comes to the Adventure segment for the first time, with the launch of a dedicated range of performance kits for the Ténéré World Raid, with parts also available separately for the standard Ténéré 700.

Yamaha Motor Europe P&A, with Yamaha Motor Europe Research & Development, in collaboration with the Ténéré World Rally Team and its riders Pol Tarres and Alessandro Botturi have worked meticulously to develop this exciting new range of parts, which come from the development of a twin-cylinder adventure motorcycle that has been able to compete with and beat lighter, 450cc prototypes.

This was seen recently in the TransAnatolia races, where the development Ténéré World Raid fitted with full GYTR kit finished first and second in the B2 class.

Offering an 8.5% increase in engine performance, and a chassis tuned to deliver true rally potential, the GYTR Performance Kits come in three separate stages, which combine to create the ultimate Ténéré World Raid.

Ténéré 700 World Raid GYTR Performance kit

Developed to unlock the full adventure potential of the Ténéré 700 World Raid’s 689cc CP2 engine, the GYTR Performance kit utilises the stock wiring harness but adds a lightweight race exhaust system from Akrapovič, with headers, slip-on muffler and end cap all constructed from titanium.

Designed to optimise exhaust gas flow, the system works in conjunction with the
GYTR air filter kit, comprising of a bespoke case and filter element, and the GYTR ECU, which adjusts ignition and fuel mapping to maximise power and torque output and delivery. The GYTR performance parts combine to increase performance up to 9hp.

Alongside the engine tuning parts, the kit also contains a GYTR footrest set, which feature a heavily serrated design to aid grip and an open pattern aimed at reducing the cumulation of mud in extreme conditions.

The final component in the Performance kit is a clutch cover upgrade, with a GYTR branded billet aluminium split cover allowing easy access to the clutch’s inner workings for quick servicing between rally stages.

The GYTR Performance kit has been developed for easy installation, allowing the stock wiring harness, wheels and ABS system to be retained. This kit can be fitted on both the Ténéré World Raid and the Ténéré 700.

Ténéré 700 World Raid GYTR Handling kit

Taking things a step further, the GYTR Handling kit focuses on getting the chassis of the Ténéré 700 World Raid rally-ready, with new race-specification wheels and suspension combining to create a motorcycle prepared to take on the roughest terrains with outstanding handling and stability.

Race-developed 48mm diameter KYB closed cartridge forks feature DLC coated tubes and have an increased stroke of 270mm, while a mid-speed valve allows for adjustment over a much wider range. To enable the fitment of the upgraded front suspension, the kit also includes a GYTR triple clamp assembly, machined from billet aluminium 6082 anodised in black colour. The triple clamp is matched with a compact, yet fully adjustable steering damper, manufactured by Scotts Performance. With 25 settings, which can be adjusted on the fly, the damper has been developed to increase stability and reduce rider fatigue when riding long stints on rough terrain. The triple clamp kit also contains a bracket to keep the standard steering damper. At the rear, a fully adjustable Paioli shock absorber replaces the stock item, featuring high and low-flow rate pistons to optimise compression and rebound damping for improved rider feedback.

GYTR rally wheels, prepared by Haan Wheels using Excel rims and machined hubs in aluminium, reduce weight, while there’s also a new braking system front and rear with Brembo calipers and bigger 300mm discs from Braking up front, with a 267mm rear disc mated to the stock caliper. The GYTR Handling kit ECU allows for deletion of the ABS system and immobiliser. Also included in the kit is a lightweight chain and sprocket set with revised ratios and a new radiator assembly consisting of a bigger radiator and separate oil cooler, as well as all the hoses and brackets required for installation. The kit also includes a black anodised GYTR radiator guard to protect against branches, stones and other debris.

The final element of the Ténéré 700 GYTR Handling kit is the GYTR high front fender for that authentic ‘Dakar’ look and additional protection from whatever the stages throw at you.

Ténéré 700 World Raid GYTR Rally kit

For the ultimate in endurance and rally performance, the GYTR Rally kit adds larger capacity fuel tanks and all the equipment required to fit the roadbook and GPS instrument equipment used in competitive rally raids.

New front tanks, left and right, are made from nylon painted in black colour and have a transparent ‘window’ to allow for a quick and easy visual check on fuel levels. The tanks are also fitted with dedicated race filler caps to allow for rapid refuelling, while the kit also includes auxiliary tanks which can be fitted to the rear of the machine, increasing the overall fuel capacity to a gigantic 37.6 litres.

The GYTR handlebar kit comes with a quick-action throttle assembly, hand guards and brackets to allow the rider to attach their personal navigation equipment. The Rally kit also includes a new set of indicator and warning lights, a headlight tower kit with four high-performance spotlights  and a new polycarbonate screen to provide protection to both the rider and the

Completing the full rally raid transformation, the Rally kit comes with a GYTR carbon fibre & Kevlar skid plate and a comprehensive sticker kit to create a replica of the GYTR Africa Eco Rally machine, as well as rally-spec seat. The one-piece GYTR Rally Seat replaces the standard two-part unit. Proudly featuring the GYTR logo, the saddle is made from grippy material for maximum control in even the most challenging conditions. As standard, the Rally Seat increases seat height by 25mm, however it has been designed to allow the rider to cut the foam and create a customised shape to meet their own ergonomic requirements.

This kit also includes a GYTR wiring harness, designed to facilitate the fitting of the kit parts. The loom is lighter than standard and required to remove the ABS and immobiliser.
