Z's 2013 Daytona 675R Track/Race Bike Build Thread

After a while of adding me-too posts to other peoples mod and build threads, I figure it's probably time to start my own. Probably this thread should be called average guy build thread -- or hand over your money to TJ build thread . Regardless, I always love reading about other peoples bikes and how they update them over time, so here's my story.

I started with a 2013 Daytona 675R I found in July on Craigslist with just 200 miles, Evotech fender eliminator, spools, tank guard, and Arrow slip-on. I had just finished a track day on my '09 Street Triple and wanted a more track oriented bike. Boy did I find one!

Next step was to add some protection and tank pads to the bike. I added Triumph OEM frame sliders, GB Racing Engine Cover set, Cox radiator guard, and TechSpec tank pads. Good enough to cover me as I transitioned from running level 1 (beginners) to level 2 (intermediate) pace at track days.

After witnessing some accidents on group rides, I realized the place I really wanted to push the limits was on the track -- where the 675R is particularly at home. Leave the speed at the track, ride relaxed on the streets!

Mid-way through the season, I decided that I wanted to take advantage of all my time on the track, and that in order to do that I'd invest in some tire warmers, so I bought some Moto-D dual temps on recommendation from some of my friends.

Here they are mounted on the bike when the day started at 39 deg F! Boy was the track slick that morning! The pressures kept dropping, the forks were stiff, but thankfully it warmed up and turned into a great day to ride.

As my times on the track dropped, and my commitment increased, I decided that I couldn't afford to push it any faster with all that pretty bling on the bike. Another few orders were made for SharkSkinz, AP rear sets, Zero Gravity Corsa bubble, and Renthal clip-ons and grips.

Much drama ensued when all the parts arrived as I realized I couldn't use the fairings without removing the OEM frame sliders -- and that the dealer hadn't returned the stock parts to me when I had them installed (note: always ask for the stock parts back!!! Or better yet, do the installation yourself - in retrospect it was fairly simple to do and I should have just done it myself). I managed to get what I need by combining some bolts from the techs toolbox at the dealer with some pretty-bolts from Pro-Bolt.

Then there was a little adventure with mounting the R/R and installing the barometric pressure sensor (I know this stuff is probably trivial for all of you - but there is a first time for everything -- and this was my first). Here's a couple of pictures of the bike in progress.

Despite advice from my racer buddies that fresh paint attracts pavement, I decided to go ahead and get my fairings painted. I shopped around and found a decent deal on a three color scheme I made up by hacking the pictures of the fairings mounted on a 675R on the SharkSkinz web site using gimp (I definitely didn't want to spend $$$ for PhotoShop).

Here they are mounted, and at the track this past weekend at MSRH (just outside of Houston). I managed to drop my times to right around 2:00 from 2:18 a few months before on my Street Triple. I'm telling you it was the paint job!

Now of course comes the great sadness - that might have been my last track day of the year since the weather is starting to get cold here. Ah well, that will give me more time to tinker right! My next step is to race prep the bike so I can race in CMRA events next year.

Nice bike dude... I have been waiting to see where you are at with it!

Although mine hasn't got the track kit that yours has, we have many of the same extras. It started to get a little weird when I realised that we wear the same helmet too!

The bike just looks sooooooo much better with a track bellpan covering all the junk near the exhaust too.

Nice work, keep it shiny side up, enjoy and keep us updated as to any other goings on!

Nice looking bike idd.

Yea someone should make a mould for a bellypan piece that matches that design but fits the standard bike, would look a lot better than the inserts you need now if you change exhuast.

NOTE: This is how I did it early on - I now have the R/R mounted in the tail using the Triumph supplied bracket from the race kit. Keep reading for details! -ZR 5/5/2014

I received an inquiry about how I mounted the R/R and barometric sensor on the bike, so I thought I'd post a description and some pictures in case others might benefit.

I'm using the stock wiring harness - unmodified (just disconnecting parts at OEM connectors).

Barometric sensor - this was pretty straight forward. I marked and drilled two holes in the bottom of the upper fairing on the left side -- about where the stock sensor sat. I re-used the rubber mounting grommet from the stock fairings. I've only had a few track days on it, but it seems reasonably secure.

R/R - this was a little more involved (thus requiring pictures). I fabricated an aluminum bracket as shown in the pictures and mounted it on the left side of the instrument cluster using the fairing stay holes as a convenient place to put some bolts.

If you read the Rider's Discount '13 build thread, you'll see that they actually removed the ABS system and relocated the R/R to under the rear subframe in front of the wheel.

A question : Does the sharskinz bellypan line up with the stock fairing mounts ? Considering ordering one if it does, since the black bit of the oem fairing is removable i could replace it with the sharkskinz bellypan. The stock bike would look a ton better with it.
