Upgrade your Yamaha R3 / MT-03 race bike with CP-Carrillo "H-Type" Connecting Rods. Carrillo designed and manufactured these H-type rods specifically for high performance applications with a hardened proprietary steel alloy, providing a strong connecting rod that decreases rod growth and increases reliability of your Yamaha's engine. The H-Type design provides a strong and durable design that's built to withstand the demands of the track. Each connecting rod is forged, fully machined, balanced, shot peened, and finally Maganflux inspected and hardness tested. The end result is a connecting rod that you can rely on for the extreme conditions that a race built engine experiences. The decreased growth will enable you to use a thinner head gasket and/or more aggressively decked head while maintaining closer clearances. We utilize these exact connecting rods on our in-house TST Yamaha R3 Superbike. We have already blown the motor top end, but the inspection of the bottom end showed no damage. These rods are built to take the abuse and last.
