TRIUMPH 675 DAYTONA 2010

Wet Weight (with 7 litres of fuel) 169kg


Bike was bought with crash damage late last summer for a bargain price. I then fully repaired with Triumph parts for the road. MoT pass first time.

Then work to convert to track bike with a view to keeping costs as low as possible and doing everything I could myself. The K-Tech kit cost more than I paid for the bike and was by far the most expensive item. Most parts were sourced over the winter months from EBay. Paintwork was done by me using rattle cans and lots of tea.

Finished this morning (bar a little fettling). Plan is to run this year as a minimum.

Thanks Bob. I really had to resist hard making it too nice as it’s ‘just’ a track bike. But I enjoy doing it.
The spraying was a bit of a task as in my impatience to get it done I did the first and second top coats when it was too cold really. So, I had to rub that all down and start again. Patience was never a strong point.
But with the warmth of this week and some elbow grease, voila 😎

is it me or is it really low at the back.......?
Yep... I think it looks like its for short arses.... and i'd have to have three times as much padding... with some at the back... at least for grip.... even 20 Grit sand paper would do.

Also that is a lovely track bike.

Thanks. It’s all part of the fun and stopped me going too crazy over winter.
Engine is standard and has only covered 6500 miles. I think the weight loss, the gearing and the fact that I’m a ickle one will make it reasonably quick.
Keep thinking I will junk the race filter as the gain is marginal at best and the security of proper filtration is appealing.

I never thought my 675 would set the world on fire and I found it a bit gutless sometimes but I was missing the point as it was so quick round the corners and made easy work of the twisties.

Yes, they corner and brake well.
I don’t think they are gutless compared to 600’s though. Obviously compared to 1000’s they are somewhat lacking but they have quite good torque for a little one. I hope to be able to embarrass a few bigger bikes on it 🙂

Bit of tidying up before the bikes first track outing a week tomorrow.

1. Relocated the RegRec to under the air intake tube rather than tucked down the side of the fairing. Mounted on alloy to assist heat dispersal.
2. Fitted gloss black wrap to the bottom of the screen to tidy up the front a bit more
3. Fitted zip tie mounting points so I can hold the fuses and relays safely in the fairing without too much bother.
4. Fitted the baffle and wadding to the end can. 😞
5. Checked fastening torques
