** Serious Update Alert **
I track day'd the bike like this for a year, but I was never completely happy with it
there was nothing wrong with it, it was good fun, but I just wanted that little bit more...
so I bought a Daytona, stripped all the goodies off the Street and put it back to standard ready to sell it.
I rode the Daytona at Cadwell, Oulton and Anglesey and it was faster than the street, but there was a problem....
it wasn't as much fun.
so I decided that FUN was more important that speed and switch back to the Street.
the plan is to try and make it good as I can make it.
so bring on the upgrades!!!
OUT with the STR forks and IN with a set of 2012 TTC spec Daytona forks.
it'd have cost over £500 to upgrade the standard forks, I picked these up for £330.
OUT with the Triumph Ohlins shock and IN with a Nitron race shock.
The Ohlins (ish) shock was only marginally better that the original and I picked up the 6 month old Nitron for 1/2 the price of a new one.
other bits I've done over the last couple of months.
removed all of the ugly brackets from the sub frame.
removed the casting seams from the triple clamps.
fresh powder coating for the wheels and subframe.
added some bits of carbon and titanium fittings.
added an HM dash.
fitted a new TRS bellypan.
and had the scruffy bodywork painted.
I couldn't decide on the colour scheme, so I had a play with the rattle cans to see what looked best.
these are some of the bits I sent
This was the end result
