    Hi,
    Just got my first Daytona 675, it's a 2009 on the VIN but seems to have 2008 fairings and engine so may need some help and advice on what I need to build a decent track bike.
    Done plenty of track days on GSX-R 600 and 1000cc but have always wanted a Triumph.

    I live in the Staffordshire/East Midlands area.

    Welcome to our friendly little forum SFM
    Any 675 can make a decent trackbike imho.;))
    Engine is fairly easy to clarify: Early version has round exhaust ports.
    Later VIN should have ECU & wiring loom to enable plug & play quickshifter.

    I had the tank off and the ECU has 2008 date stamp but the VIN number on it matched the V5 showing 2009 date of manufacture.

    Welcome along, mine was an occasional trackday tool before purchasing from a friend and since riding it I can see why. If I didn't have a dedicated trackbike already I'd be using it they are awesome!!!!

  9. Have another welcome and the 675 isn't a bad track bike in standard trim.
    want to spend, suspension, suspension and good old fashioned practice.

    Both of my previous track bikes had the forks serviced with new springs and vales at K-Tech and both had Nitron NTR 2s on the rear, professionally setup on track. Spent a fair amount. I think I will be doing the same soon.
