I don't know why Triumph didn't just keep it with the Daytona subframe and tail to begin with. That looks soooo good. Only thing I'm not crazy about is the coolant reservoir. Wish there was a more elegant solution to that issue.

Why wouldn't the stock Daytona exhaust fit the ST? Is the ST a longer, or shorter bike?

First, the battery box doesn't conform to the shape of the Daytona exhaust. Also the reservoir tank is under the seat where as the Daytona rear end doesn't have it under the seat. I believe the Daytona has its reservoir located behind the front fairing so ud never c it. Also the mounting brackets for the exhaust on a Daytona wont match up to the street. Triumph made sure it was a mission for a swap. Hell, they even made sure u couldn't mate the mid-pipe without it being a mission. I agree that the bike should have stayed identical to the Daytona but I love both the same. Have a speciAl edition called the Daytona street where its the same as the swap i will do.

Had to mock it up, and I'm guessing it will really bring out sum aggresive flavor to her.

The fitting to midpipe is different between the two so they won't interchange. You could swap the headers, midpipe and can, but then you would have the ex up floating in the wind. Mine is a home made with new merge collector on the stock headers, and a custom made pipe that fits on to the Jardine midpipe.

There are definitely " more elegant" coolant reservoir options, but I like this one. I actually had it on there before swapping the tail.

Im thinking of using a metal water bottle and seeing where it would fit. Ideally, i want it hidden, and if i cant hide it, i wanna make sure it can survive the beatings it will end up taking. Click image for larger version

This is Gènesis' ass now. When i get hm i start the strip, and packing away. I wanna try to reuse my 2bro can(s) if possible. Looked at pix of the daytona version, and its just a single can with a different end cap. If i can buy the end cap then i dont even need to buy and aftermarket exhaust for it

Good luck with it. I was thinking about the changing out my daytona rear for a street rear. Not sure what that would look like, but curious.

Daytona Street huh? Sure that's not breaching my registered trade mark?

Lol, sorry ruby but the names too good to pass up. All the fun of a daytona, but with only half the fat, or a 1/3 less fat then the leading brand.

No worries. At least I was the first, I think. Streetona never really did it for me.

Sorry to tease, but for now this is all i have. Took plenty of pix, but not really sure of what size allens i used and what not, so for the purposes of a how-to, it isn't ready. Im sort of at a standstill tho because i cant go much further until the battery box gets in. Im hoping to have a decent how-to written up in the next day or so. Click image for larger version
