Converting our long term Yamaha R3 into a race ready bike

Our AMCN R3 Long Termer is actually two bikes. Our first bike was recently retired from active duty. This provided Darren Sciberras, Jed Metcher and the team at Race Centre in Melbourne the opportunity to take everything they had learned from Ol’d Blu and apply to to New Blu, the result was a father and better handling machine. And if you think converting a road-going R3 into a race ready R3-Cup bike is simply a case of sticking on the race number, check out this video to see just how much work the team puts into the bikes they prepare.
