    Daytona or any other performance spare manufacturer is always costly. BUT PERFORMANCE IS SURE….For circuit racing in modified class will be awesome… I wish we had circuit racing tracks in all metro cities…

  • Sandeep

    Imagine… Can Bajaj do this to the Pulsar 220 DTSi? Yamaha Rocks. Truth prevails.

    • Saggy

      i truly support u for this……..!!!
      yamaha rocks…!!!!

      • varun

        yami is back in action… Jus imagine if the same bike cums out with a 250cc engine… Even nw p220 is getting beated in cities as well as circuits… So beware… Dn’t tak a chance to race vth us…

  • Sandeep, Bajaj really does not need any performance parts, because the bike cant handle anymore power or so it seems.

  • dhiraj c raut

    guys think of performance the bike will be giving ….do any one of u know the performance figures after fitting performance kit ….i am sure it will be way better than new 220…

  • Chinmay

    Unless and Untill we get access to Chassis Dynamometer and a skilled operator for that. No one can measure the performance after fitting HIGH PERFORMANCE KITS. On judgement only we can guess. One thing is sure riding quality of vehicle

  • sagar

    will this affect the average of the bike n by how much

  • Rahul Bajpai

    My advice to you folks read some quality stuff and write something original (there’s a lot wider arena to know and write about bikes). Garner some contacts with biggies and into firms so that you really get an insight knowledge and inside news rather than publishing speculations read from newspapers or bike magazines. It’s okay to do so but only when you do write more of your original stuff as well.

    • Deepak

      Rahul, it looks like you haven’t gone through our site well. Most of the articles are original. Just because newspapers publish something, it doesn’t mean we cannot publish the same news. News is news. And right now we haven’t even reached our break even point. This blog is not for pure profit. Thousands of people have benefited from our reviews and photos.

  • vicky

    Is this kit only for tracks or for daily use//…

  • pothen

    These daytona exhaust are not really street legal as they exceed the noise levels set by the pollution control boards & cops may stop you. For regular street use they need to use the db killer kit which reduces the sound level by about 5 dB to 10 db
    Proton Performance is already making performance exhaust for street use for the Yamaha R15 and looks awesome I have seen one in chennai

    • Michael

      Go for KRB exhaust… They are better than Proton or Daytona…

  • Ayan

    It’s always less than amusing to see biased comments in a so-called ‘healthy’ discussion forum. For those who have forgotten, Pulsar was the brand which associated performance biking with affordability and brought it to the masses, way before Yamaha did anything in 4-strokes in terms of performance. Besides, Indian manufacturers are more than capable of retaliating with better and faster products. The full-blown R15 will set you back by Rs. 50000, which is a BIG amount by any standards. Compare it with the racing kit soon to be launched by TVS, to be priced at around Rs 8-10000 only(complete with the modified ECU), and believe you me, the full-blown RTR 160/180 will be substancially more than what the YAMAHA can handle! Go through the data sheets and you will know that the RTR efi is already quicker than R15 in 0-60 timings(4.74 sec-RTR vis-a-vis 5.02 sec-R15).I’d request everybody to get their facts straight before actually passing biased commnets, although i know that you love your bikes:)

    • sreejith

      hey , you are wrong fz can go 60 in just 4.15 sec and its is the quickest bike in street , it is the perfect street boke for india, and it can gain about 95-100 km/hr at a very less time, by giving normel accelarating and can have up to 132 km/hr top speed,

      • Ayan

        @sreejith: Once again, I’d request you to get your facts straight. Stock FZ doesn’t accelerate from 0-60 in 4.15 seconds,and neither does it clock 132 kph. Moreoever, FZ is a carburetted bike so, what ECU are you talking about? do you even know what ECU means??

    • Sahil

      still waiting for tht KIT frm TVS….

      • Ayan

        @sahil : yup. I lost hope, upgraded to p-220 a few days ago after getting fed up of waiting for TVS to launch their racing kit:( Waiting for my 220 to turn about 5k kms old, thenafter I shall start modding it. Got HID installed in low beams already,and loving it though:))

  • harsha

    i want to know the cost of it and where it is available

  • lol

    only for circuit normal people will not be able to use it?

  • Jazzy

    Hi Guys,

    I got some more info about the R15 racing kit.

    The complete kit will make you poorer by INR 78,000 Approx. The most expensive upgrade would be the ECU which will cost you whopping INR 22,000 Approx.

    Good luck and happy buying!!!

  • kaushik

    dude the racing kit costs 55grand , thats dumb……
    p200 n 220 has got a lot of power , why those stupid kits???

  • kaushik

    pulsars just need a bigger jet , a high performance air filter and racing sprokets…but in yamaha kit, they use a higher lift cams , new ECU , duralunini sprokets , new exhaust …… thats too many modifications n its not street legal….. so i think the kit is dumb…..

  • Black

    Hi Guys,

    if I want to buy a kit racing R15,
    where can I get it …..
    infonya please ….

  • neel thakkar

    hey dude u can get the racing kit through the yamaha dealer in your city……


    does the yamaha r15 sounds like sports bike after installing only the dayatona silenser

  • Banga

    Nilesh, there is no standard sound for sport bikes, as you know it varies. But the sound is definitely louder and harder. In fact it’s too loud, but I love the sound as most bikers love such engine song. However not everyone may like it…

  • raj

    am raj …am having yamaha fz16 and some racing parts ..and am in chennai..please tell me how to get …can i get through credit card…

  • sandeshmenon

    hii;im having yamaha r15 if i put proton exsut and filter can i get a sound like sports bike and would i get a performence…….

  • Parth

    d daytona prton exaust will definately giv u a louder sound as in a crisp firing sound but d the thing dat makes a sports bike sound lyk 1 is the engine humming dat u wont get in a r15.. n d performance will comparitively increase..
    n d latest update says d racing kit can b urs for aprox. Rs.30,000…

  • armaan

    hey any body would like to help me by sending a website name which i m requiring for entering in track racing competrtion plz help me ……………..

  • haresshvar

    hi guys,
    whats the use of putting a racing kit for r15. im going to buy a r15. so what’s better performance kit or racing kit, and what will be the max power output we get after putting a racing kit. please send me a reply to my mail, magnaharesh@gmail.com, thank u

  • Shibin

    we have a racing team at the madras motor sports club (chennai track) and we got two R15’s one is a stock one and the other we recently fitted the complete daytona engine kit (ECU, Cam and the exhaust) we could clock 2:20 secs for 1 lap in the stock and the daytona could clock 2:17 secs (our custom race tuned r15 could clock 2:11 with the daytona exhaust alone)which is way too good but i would not recommend the daytona kit for street pupose since you get only a very small comparitive change in the performance..you can conact me for more details at shibinavailable@gmail.com

  • Sunny

    Hello all,

    R15 kit is really amazing and i can provide you this kit at very cheaper rates.

    Call me for queries at +91 9819037115

    Ravinder Singh

    • Jobu

      how much the cost of racing kit r15…..plz send me the reply immediately…..

  • Shibin

    hi sunny i m shibin i jus checked out your comment..the thing is that i own an R15 with the daytona racing kit i m not impressed with its performance with respect to the price.it performs quite good but not worth it……

  • Sunny

    Hi Shibin,

    I could have provided you the kit in cheaper rates, as you have already bought it so its no point. But if you talk about performance i believe its amazing. I drove R15 with Daytona kit in a race for a demo ride and i was on one wheel for 60% of the circuit track 🙂


  • shibin

    wats the price if i get it through you??? i ve got a stock r15 and i jus got my daytona r15 2 months ago..so i m planning to get the daytona kit for my blue stock..


    you can ckeck out my bikes in the above link..or pls send me ur e mail ID to my gmail ID Mentioned above..

  • Shalu

    Hi guyz, itz amazing, When i fit full daytona kit to ma fz16. But it’s not a worth 4 money !

  • sagar

    Racing kit is from Rs 56000/- total spairs, it have excelent performence, but initial cost is more…..!!
    it designed for circut racing, but not fit for all indian roads. due to high speed pick up.

  • Shibin

    The full racing kit costs even more i guess but the engine kit costs only 38,000(with tax and installation).

  • Allwyn

    I saw this kit with one of the FZ16 but the yamaha guys told me the FZ gets only the brakes and the exhaust..they dont have the engne kit for FZ…….is this true

  • Allwyn

    can i get the price plz….

  • romi

    the Proton performance exhaust system for the R15 is much better looking than the daytona Dagrex & it has an optional DB killer to make it street legal and not get noticed by the Cops. it cost less than 10k in chennai for the Titanium series & carbon fibre exhaust. You could contact Hardeep motorcycles on GP road in chennai

  • Shibin

    Hi romi, The proton exhaust system is just the slip on and you cant expect maximum performance with just a slip on(no much torque)only a full system with the right headers give a good ratio of torque at hi rpms….so no use of just going for an exhaust system you ll need the perfect header pipes for a 150 cc….slipons dont perform good

  • niyazi

    i would like to buy this racing kit for my fazer , it is very costly 15k(muffler kit) but i will buy it in shortly

  • chetan

    guys m confused weather to fit daytona racing kit for my fz-s

  • Jevin George

  • Shibin

    • Jevin

      thanx 4 letting me know tht shibin
      so u know anyone who did tht bcoz i wanna know about it and their experience thts y

  • Michael

    I own a Pulsar 220 which i have upgraded its performance by putting in a Big K&N performance air Filter, NGK iridium spark plugs, better freeflow exhaust, 13 teeth karizma sprocket and a karizma fuel jet pin and performance tuned it, it has a medium compound zapper tyres for better handling and trust me, It beats the hell out of other bikes with all those performance kit installed including R-15.

    • Shibin

      @michael Hello michael, Cool mod to your pulsar!! But the last line is a mistake, The last test done on R15 from our side could do 170kmph without the racing kit but just track tuning-i.e. Weight reduction, Fuel mixing, Fuel injector flow,and not much more than that,which could easily beat a Kawasaki ninja (stock tuning) on the track without any hard effort (the kawasaki Rider got pissed off), All that without the Daytona kit. If the same tuning is done on a daytona it sure would make any modded p220 and kawasaki ninja see stars. The only beast next is a Honda CBR 250r which will make things easier, like beating a ninja or any kind of 220s. CBR250 is on My list…..BTW my Daytona kitted R15 might come on sale this February, The bike was bought for a lakh and ten and another lakh rupees was spent for modification, its got a daytona exhaust, high-lift cam shaft, Racing ECU, Pirelli tyres(rear), the bike is painted black and white (the whole left side is white and the whole right side is black (2k cobra first layer paint and a dupont 2nd layer paint), all the lights are dupont smoked, the rims are also painted black and white(matching the bike), Racing levers etc… the person who offers the maximum price will be favoured..expected price 90k…

      • Michael

        Forgot to tell you, i even changed the Carburator…

      • Myke

        Shibin, you touch 170km/h in an r-15 without even changing the ecu… Don’t try to fool us… A stock ecu will always limit your rev till 10rpm and after that, it’ll start missing… And at 10rpm even in 6th gear no r-15 will touch 170km/h… Not even a daytonna kit… I own a pulsar 220 and a r-15… Both are modded and my r-15 has a 165cc big bore kit fitted with it, with high lift cam shaft, bigger valves and spring, the heads been ported, krp exhaust, race prep ecu and fitted with a light racing body kit… But i could never touch 170km/h in 10rpm… Tell us the magic… Don’t try to fool people…

      • Amandeep

        Do the same with even pulsar 180 ug4 and wont see r-15 in p180 rear view mirrors

    • Vivin

      Hi Michael, Its quite natural to not let our bike down in comparisons, but in some cases it is appreciable to give up and credit the Daytona. When it comes to racing the Pulsar220 is just a ‘Myth’ and the R15 is the ‘Fact’. No offense 🙂

  • Anirudh V

    I have myself dragged a stock P220 DTS-i with a Yamaha R-15(Daytona performance ECU, sprocket and dagrex exhaust) and i beat the bike with a difference of almost 2 bikes in a quarter mile run!
    But it beat me on top end!
    So my suggestion….the Daytona kit is a waste of money…but the power increase u get is high as well(about 21-22 BHP) but cops would burn holes into ur pockets as this mod is illegal in India.!

    • Shibin

      Oh Anirudh, We do tonnes of drag racing, we got expert tuners dude and please don’t tell me a stock 220 could beat a Daytona, no way!!!! here we are eating stock ninjas and modified 220s with my daytona and what on earth is a baby stock p220 going to do in the arena??? What is your drag timing anyway???

      • Anirudh V

        Hi Shibin!
        I appreciate you take out ninjas with your R15…that is really awesome!
        probably the rider i raced with wasn’t quite good enough i guess!
        one more thing….the p220 launches and accelerates way better than the daytona r15…i have related videos of my race.
        where r u from??
        im based here in mumbai….tell me if u r around…we can race!
        i know some drag strips here.
        u can get my timing then and there!

    • Vivin

      Hi there Anirudh, I do accept the fact that the 220 can accelerate faster and get worn out even much faster. And to your above comment, it was like saying that ‘I could recite the poem faster in the first stanza, but he could easily recite it wholly!!!’
      And I’m impressed with your racing spirit…

      • Anirudh V

        @vivin—Drag races are all about reciting the first stanza of the poem….what more could you expect in a 400m race?
        I agree the tuned R-15 is faster than the P220 on the track(it has awesome handling as well as braking) – but in a drag race its very difficult to tell.

  • Shibin

    @michael Even the carb dude wont help it play my daytona.

  • abhishek ronald

    dude for the yamahar15 its like ” no comments……….!!! ” and when with and installed K&n air filter along with a free flow exhaust its a sonic>>>>> Yamaha

  • avneet grewal

    hey guys why so much confusion just get KRP exhaust, KRP hight lift cam, KRP ecm, and HP air filter directly on the air intake( removing the air box). if you guys still want more then make your R15 into R18(180cc engine kit). send me an email if you guys really want power.

  • Anish

  • roshan

    why they compare YAMAHA with a nasty bajaj lol pulsar s r born frm their legendary street machines autorisksha 1200 & M 80 super bike ,so bajaj bikes r very powerfull than honda s & yamaha s lol hahaa

  • mike alpha

    hey, i had the daytona kit installed in my fazer plus a rear Pirelli SD …. the power has increased considerably ,, the bike pulls much easier even on steep slopes( i live at lonavla) n the noise is just loud sportslike n loud (yes noise levels r illegal but noone has caught me yet.. lol ) ..the bike pulls much better frm 50-90 touches 100 in a lesser time now…. my vote is for the upgrades !! got them after my bike’s done 20K’s n i’m liking the new feel!!

  • Myke

    Guys i own a yamaha R-15 and a bajaj pulsar 220…. Both are high performance modified… I tried the daytona kit on my R-15 and the tyres were of michellin… Damn, but my 220 didn’t had much problem in keeping up with my r-15 and it also overtook it… R-15 had a greater top-end but the accelaration was slow, which was not recommended for tracks… I was highly disappointed on my daytona racing kit and sold off the exhaust, the cam shaft and the ecu… Then i bought a 165cc big bored kit with a high lift cam shaft, remapped ecu, NGK iridium spark plug and high voltage splitfire wire, a K&N air filter, ported the head, fitted the valves with bigger springs, changed the clutch springs and fitted a KRP exhaust sustem… And it is fast, really fast… Compared both the bikes and the r-15 was much much faster, both in acceleration and high speed… But i will still not be too sure about it because the stock cdi was limiting the speed of pulsar… Now i am just waiting for a high performance cdi and a high lift cam shaft for my pulsar… Heard its being developed by some company in Indonesia, then i’ll try both the bike and give u the results… Can’t wait to lay my hand on it…
