New R&D intercooler kit available
Please order here
The R&D Yamaha SHO/FZ/FZR Pro Limited Intercooler Kit was developed to directly replace the restrictive O.E.M. intercooler. The new R&D design offers high performance affordable intercooling that will bolt into the OEM stock location utilizing the OEM inlet cover, and all stock hoses and hardware.
The new R&D design is I.J.S.B.A. / A.P.B.A. Limited Class legal, complying with rule book regulating aftermarket intercooler size. The R&D Intercooler has been specifically designed, sized, and routed to also comply with the I.J.S.B.A.’s 25% rule.
The new R&D Pro Limited Intercooler Kit is constructed from aircraft aluminum and is extremely easy to install, removes quick for cleaning and winter storage, is ultra strong, and rubber mounted so vibration will not compromise the long term performance.
This new Intercooler has been tested against every manufacturers complying intercooler, and has proven to out flow, out cool, and out power them all.
The R&D intercooler offers better cooling efficiency through a “made in the USA” aluminum core design that easily out performs cheaper inefficient intercooler cores known to crack, leak and cause extreme detonation. The R&D intercooler core will flow more air, deliver better cooling efficiency, and allow C1 and C3 Monster Wheel to live up to their airflow volume and power potential.
The new R&D design drastically reduces deadhead air restriction producing ultra responsive “POWER NOW” acceleration all the way through the RPM range.
The R&D Pro Limited Intercooler Kit has also incorporated an integral flange which will allow the easy bolt on addition of a Greddy RZ Blow-off valve which can be adjusted to regulate boost, and compressor surge blow-off under deceleration.
- Significantly improves cooling efficiency
- Flows 40 CFM more than stock
- Bolts directly into stock location w/oem hardware
- Increases overall horsepower
- Aggressive holeshot and mid range acceleration
- Works great with C1 or C3 Monster compressor wheels
- Retains O.E.M. flushing system for maintenance
- I.J.S.B.A. and A.P.B.A. Limited Class Legal (Rule 7.8.3.)

So with the choices out there now, which IC is the best for the RECREATIONAL rider?
I don't care about rules--only interested in the BEST IC when I upgrade.

My opinion is wait for JD's kit to be released and then decide. Nobody really knows (or they aren't telling) which IC is the best yet because it's so hard to do back to back tests with them. They are a pain in the arse to swap out. The RIVA one isn't even shipping yet.
I think Dan's kit will end up being the best value for rec riders. May not be quite as fancy as the RIVA kit but I guarantee it will work, might even out perform it. You never know.
If you want one now and want the best value, build one with parts from frozenboost.com. Hell if I can do it anyone can. lol

Craig, for a rec rider this intercooler might not be the best choice. It was designed specifically to comply with IJSBA limited class racing rules. THis rule sates that. "Intercooler heat exchange surface area may not be increased by more than 25%"
For a racer concerned with abiding by this limited class rule then the Riva might not be the way to go because it's heat exchange surface is actually 260% greater than that of the OEM intercooler. Riva designed their intercooler for the typical rec rider or Open Class racer who is not restricted by Limited Class rules. 260% is a huge increase over the stock intercooler
