Yamaha GYTR Torque Assist Gear Kit for the YXZ1000R

Yamaha YXZ1000R GYTR Torque Assist Gear Kit

The GYTR Torque Assist Gear Kit is designed to aid your YXZ1000R through the most rugged, technical and diverse terrain. This innovative system reduces overall gearing, providing enhanced torque control. The GYTR kit reduces the YXZ1000R’s final gearing by 30 percent for balanced close-ratio performance, as well as an additional 40 percent to first gear for ultimate low-speed crawling.

The GYTR Torque Assist Gear Kit includes a CNC-machined OEM transmission case to eliminate the need for grinding, modification or outside machining, an adjustable speedometer calibrator for precise speedometer readings in YXZs with aftermarket tire sizes, and all genuine Yamaha parts and components necessary for installation.

GYTR’s Torque Assist Gear Kit is available for the  YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R SS through the Yamaha Genuine Parts and Accessories catalog and dealer installation recommended, but not required.

The Torque Assist Gear Kit provides 30% reduction (70% 1st gear) vs. stock gearing when your terrain demands the ultimate accessory for low speed and tight trail riding. It stands out by providing all the necessary Yamaha Genuine Parts required (*Yamalube sold separately) for installation. The optimized MCU (YXZ1000R SS only), factory pre-machined case, all Yamaha Genuine bearings, precision cut gears, speedometer calibrator, and gaskets are included. There is no grinding, shipping of the transmission or guesswork involved!
