Yamaha’s Yard Built program aims to demonstrate its two-wheeled lineup’s vast possibilities for customization by commissioning one-off builds from some of the world’s most eminent customs shops. And after previously partnering with the Tuning Fork Company’s customs program on an XSR700 project and an XJR1300 build, Winston Yeh of Rough Crafts has once again been tapped by Yamaha for another bespoke scoot, this time transforming the Japanese firm’s XSR900.
Christened the “FasterTracker,” the XSR has received custom fenders, a one-off tracker tail section, a new tank cover, and a front tracker-style number board with a stacked set of sunken headlights — all of which are crafted from carbon fiber and adorned in a minimalistic pinstriped livery that leaves much of the construction’s weave on full display under a protective clear coat. Winston also added a license-plate holder/fender eliminator kit that features an integrated taillight and set of indicators that were custom-developed in collaboration with KOSO. The FasterTracker also sports Rough Craft’s typical array of top-shelf componentry, including an Öhlins mono-shock, steering damper, and FF521 universal fork slotted in custom triples, an SC-Project exhaust, Beringer brakes, GP-style lever guards, and BST carbon fiber wheels shod in Pirelli rubber.
