Thought it was about time you finally saw what I've been doing with the Daytona. Been out for a cracking ride today with a group of mates and these pics were taken before take offWink




Full carbon rear end. VERY hard to source especially the cowl!



Valtermoto rearsets and AS3 hoses 


Triumph res and HEL custom line , I had to space the rearsets to accommodate the brake light switch...     pain!

Lightech chain adjusters very tasty and really worth the money!



Akra titanium large bore exhaust, need I say more Big smile



All the carbon bar the tail is OEM triumph from the R model. My overall goal was to make a nice looking bike that looked special to those that would notice . Suspension re valved and sprung at MTC and there's a few things on the bench still to go on but overall I love it. With the lithium battery and other lightweight mods she's weighing 165kg wet with just under 120bhp.

I'm loving it Big smile

Lovely bike and some nice upgrades, you could of put the brake light switch on the caliper.

I never thought of that Warren might do that over the winter and run the wire inside the p clips good spot.

Cheers guys thought I'd better prove it actually exists LOL

Looks good Adam 👍 super lightweight too, bet it feels like a 250 2t after the gen 2.

Adam 
Nice bike, how is torque and power delivery on one of these compared to the Rsv?

It is indeed a weapon Dave! It's incredibly light and nimble so easy to flick around and does feel very similar to a RS250 but with way more power everywhere. Low down is obviously not as good as the Gen2 but not a million miles away to be fair however it just keeps pulling and really picks up after 8k all the way round to 14k screaming the noise is really addictive. On my usual b roads I can basically ride in 3rd from tight corners to fast sweepers. If you haven't tried one I'd definitely recommend a test ride I borrowed this one for a weekend and had to buy it. Might not suit everyone but my 5"5 10st frame is s perfect fit .

Looks really good Thumbs Up

I did think about trying one a while back but a mate who's about the same height as me,around 5'11" I guess rode the shops demo bike and said he couldn't wait to get off it was that uncomfortable so I never bothered in the end.

Even the Gen2 Ape feels a bit cramped to me after a Gen1 Mille,the downside of being old and overweight I suppose Cry

Just got back from another little ride and she's certainly made me smile again but even at my height after a couple of hours I'm happy to get off and have a beer. Not a " normal" sized humans machine unless you are thacking it round the track for short periods. I'd love one as a trackbike she may get converted if I destroy the kwacka Confused

They’re a lovely bike and I tried them for size a few times but like the rsv4 they’re just to small for me, absolutely no hope of me getting behind the fairing.

They are very similar to the V4 in size.

Cheers bigun I'm pretty smitten with it had her a good year now. The Akra dies sound gorgeous with the raspy triple note

Funny that, because I've sat (but not ridden) on both a D675 and RSV4. At 6'6" they both felt comfortable to me. Sure, I'm not likely to get my chin to the tank without sitting on the tail. But other than that they felt fine. Decent enough reach to the bars, which is the most important thing. The RSV4 felt just as spacious as my gen 1, despite looking tiny. 

The D675 I tried must have been jacked up a bit because it felt like the seat was really high. A bit like the seat was a foot higher than the clipons too, like a racing bicycle. Long stretch from seat to sets too. Though my legs do bend at the knee, that amount of room would probably be less tiring I'd think.

Very nice bike, my Mrs ran an SE for 2 years, the 2nd gens are way better than the 1st. We've still got an '09 , modded for road & track. I've fitted street R bars for road but use clips ons for track. Once they're set up the handling is astonishingly good with a good dollop of torque which you appear to be using already! Rapid too. 
You gotta keep on top of suspension linkage & headstock greasing, Triumph were particularly stingy. Stators/reg rec bit iffy but should have been done under recall. Overall they're a cracking bit of kit.
