Well I didnt wait long to make a decision! I kinda knew what I wanted to do, and didn't hear any reason not to.

I think this deal was too good to pass up. I've been talking to this this guy all week and just gave a deposit on this bike. It'll have the stock wheels and not the magnesium wheels on it in the pics. Those weren't included at that price, dang it! But here she is:

My parents live in Florida so they'll be picking it up for me. Then I'll grab it in March when I head down to Jennings for a "help get over the winter boredom" trackday.]U][/u]

Yeah... And that slip on isn't supposed to be compatible with 09+ 675s. Plus dat mismatched tail light and turn signals.

Look over the bike carefully, but otherwise seems like a good deal.

I don't know why it wouldn't be compatible. The oem exhaust on the 06-08 is identical to the 09-12, save for the headers where they mount to the heads. I just thought that was what they called a stage II vs. the carbon fiber tipped stage III? In fact the stock can on my 2007 is off of a 2010. Either way I'm gonna remove it and put on a full system.

Also this is gonna go straight to race fairings, so I don't mind the mismatched crap. It'll all be coming off.

for the same price - i'd get the 675R for sure - just don't bin it

All 675s have the same throttle bodies.

All slipons made for any year Daytona 675 are interchangeable to any year. No year cut off. Most accessory manufacturers put year cut offs because they develop an accessory on a bike and never test it on the other years so to cover their liability they say it only works for the specific year range of the bike they developed it on. The OEMs even do this.

Slightly more power + Better Suspension + Better Brakes + Lighter wheels = , You are already in the green if you sell your bike. It would have probably cost you the same or more to get the 07 to R specs. Congrats on the new bike!
