2015 Scorched Yellow 675R

In late 2005, I saw photos of a new bike that was supposed to revolutionize the middleweight sportbike class. With its clean lines and monotone "gentelman's graphics," I immediately fell in love with it and promptly put a deposit on a 2006 scorched yellow Daytona 675. A few months later, I was one of the first owners in Washington state and I immediately realized the wait was well worth it.

3 years go by and I decide it's time to upgrade to the updated 09 model, but it didn't come in SY. I loved the color so much, I swapped bodywork and sold my 06 with brand new black 09 fairings.

I eventually got rid of my 675 to race an SV, but I always missed my Triumph. After riding a '13R, I loved the handling and performance but I didn't love the aesthetics as much as the simpler previous model's, so this year I finally decided to make my own.






Even though the original graphite color was supposed to be a limited edition and the rarest, scorched yellow actually sold the least. Call it "baby diarrhea yellow" if you will, but it has a cult-like following of which I am a committed member. There are lots of white and black 675R's at the tracks around here, so even if mine is ugly to some, at least it's unique.

So far it's got:
Race kit harness & ECU
Manual idle adjuster
Race kit alternator
APE manual CCT
Full Ti Akrapovic
PCV + Ignition Module
BMC race filter
Pirelli SC2's
Galfer GP brake lines
Brembo Z04 pads
Rizoma brake lever guard
Lightened rear brake rotor
Catalyst upper & lower race fairings
Sharkskinz SBK tail
Zero Gravity Corsa windscreen
Attack rear sets
Attack shock linkage
Techspecs
Driven SAI block-off plates
@Ditch Doctor's SAI resistor kit
@Thatkid's captive wheel spacers
@NJcustom's carbon tank guards
GB engine covers
520 chain kit
Sato shift spindle holder
Driven fuel cap
Motoholders fairing stay
SES lock stop plate
Ohlins damper w/ Apex Mfg mounting kit
Antigravity lithium battery
Swapped red subframe for gray

I took both. Yes, the Triumph is fast as shit and yes, it's even better than I thought it would be, but I thought it would be so good I'd forget about the SV altogether. Riding the 650 right after though proved just how well set-up it is and now I'm on the fence about selling it. Argh!

It must have felt great holding your own going down the straight and not having everyone blow by you. Hey, I got that pitbull stand and if you haven't watched moto GP yet, maybe we kill two birds with one stone, let me know.

That is one trick bike MGF! Really love the inspiration and quality of keeping with the scorched yellow so closely. I never liked it on previous gens, but this one is AMAZING

Got a question
I had trouble trying to get my catalyst upper to line up to the bolts up top. I of course had the frame sliders off to get the oem ferrings off, but when i was doing the catalyst, the mount point (im assuming also an engine mount point) bowed out the bodywork and i couldnt get the upper bolt parts to line up.
how did you get it to line up?
the upper and lower bolt sections (will be using dzus fasteners) lined up fine... just kinda struggling with this one.

I can upload pics later when i have a minute too.

and HUGE for you pimping me up in the parts! haha! i got an advertising department and HE IS A RACER! how cool is that!

That Others May Live
