2006 Yamaha R1 - Updated

by The Jackal
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

Hello all,

I have updated various parts of the Yamaha R1.

Created by this guy:


His Mod:


Firstly, I have re-sized and replaced the decal textures, the speedometer textures, the carbon fiber textures and the chain and frame textures. These textures are high resolution, and have been carefully aligned with their geometric position on the motorcycle model. These textures not only
look great when panning the camera, but also when in first person view. I spent a long time perfecting the speedometer, so that it looked perfect up close.

I have also made a new handling line to suit the R1, because the standard line is very messed up. The bike is no different at speed, acceleration or braking, but has much tighter suspension, making the ride much more realistic. I've seen plenty of replacement handling lines that have massive amounts of speed and braking, with the same marsh-mallow suspension, which looks and feels totally impractical. With this new line, the bike is now ride-able.

Lastly, I am including a sound mod for the R1.

Created by this guy:


His Mod:


In my opinion, this is the best Motorcycle sound mod, and is totally under-rated. This engine sound somewhat matches the sound of the R1. You really have to hear it to understand though. If you have a controller like I do, apply the following to how you ride this motorcycle:

As you accelerate, the revs will get higher.

When accelerating, back off the speed just before the revs get too high, and the gears will change (up) automatically.

This makes the bike have more grunt, as it is not making the unrealistic high rev problem that every sound mod has. Hearing the real R1, being a 1000cc engine, it doesn't take much revs to get it going, so applying this method makes the ride much more realistic again. It also even feels like you are changing the gears manually, and makes the bike fun to ride. Again, it's hard to explain, but when you jump in game and try it, you will understand. Once you understand and adapt, it becomes incredibly

I think that with all three parts of this update combined (with the techniques also), this update makes a dramatic improvement to the Yamaha R1.

I hope you guys all enjoy it as I do.

Sorry, but I'm not impressed at all. Just look like putting different things together from other modders to come up with a result that is slightly better than nothing.

Won't rate it though, I'll wait until more experienced modders than me give their impressions.

Well, given that you don't have enough experience, I'll re-iterate what I said in the ReadMe. I have modified every single texture on the bike including the decals, the text, the speedometer, the logos, the carbon fiber, and some other gear. I have also made a new handling line that makes a dramatic difference to this motorcycles performance. Yes, I have included work from others, but it's about the combination of all modifications that makes this motorcycle so unique. I have also clearly stated what I did and didn't create. Please view the description carefully, as it explains everything in depth.

@The Jackal don't worry I read everything in the description. But what you did with that bike is what I do with ninety percent of the mods I download and install ingame. If I were to upload every one of them there would be a bunch of "dramatically improved" mods on gta4-mods. But I don't see the point of doing this, I customize them for my own needs. It doesn't mean that other people would like them. Personally I never liked the Yamaha R1... improved or not.

the R1 is replace what? the NRG900 or PCJ600? i want to use this mod,but if the R1 is replace the PCJ600 i don't want it.

I look at this link the R1 is replace NRG900,but when i download this mod and extract the files,i see that R1 is replace PCJ600

Wow, I can't believe that through all of that dribble I posted, I didn't mention what to replace. It's the NRG900. I'm really sorry, but when I posted this mod I had the assumption that everyone knew what they needed to do, which wasn't the case at all. I'm soon to upload some more mods, so look out for them. But again, it's the NRG900.

how to use the R1 sound and handling?
Posted on December 12, 2014 5:08AM by zowitz
Rename both of the files to "nrg900". There is no particular reason for it being "pcj". You can install the sound mod by replacing the old file with the new one in "STREAMED_VEHICLES" under the "sfx" file using OpenIV. To change the handling, you must open the "handling.dat" file in the GTA:IV directory and replace the existing "nrg900" handling line with the one in the ReadMe. You sound new to this sort of modding, so feel free to ask more questions if necessary.

The update handling sucks! And the handling in this file sucks! I can't even drive straight without my bike flying up doing a wheelie. Good skin but handling is *
