Default 2006 to present daytona 675 problems?

Hello,
I'm considering purchasing a 2009 daytona 675. What I'd like to know are common problems with the bike... especially after its got a significant amount of miles under its belt... my other option is the current cbr 600rr, so I'd like to know how the 675 stacks up as far as reliability is concerned.

EXUP. But you can fix it yourself pretty easily.

at what point might that be expected and is that just a matter of adjusting the cables?

My EXUP threw an engine light at around 15,000 miles. It took me 5 minutes to adjust the cable and all was good. I have an 09 and it appears as though they've addressed all the old issues.
The new CBR is down on power and the weight difference is now only about 3 or 4 lbs in favor of the Honda, whereas before it was about 10. I've ridden both, I think the 675 is more fun. Go for it!

thnx for the reply, I'm definitely leaning towards the 675... i plan on putting a lot of miles on it and that is why I'm concerned about reliability... are regular service costs about the same as on the japanese bikes?

I have had a lot of alternator problems with my 2006 recently (42 000km):
First the Alternator shorted and took the regulator with it.
Then the Core actually cracked.
Now it looks like rotor has gone.

I think only one other person on the forum has experienced the same problem, so it may not be "common". :D

Before that the bike ran like a dream. I still love it. Hopefully there are no more problems like it.

Yeah, service intervals & costs are about the same. The Honda may be slighly less, especially with 24,000 or so valve adjustment intervals. Even so, Triumph recommends checking ever 12,000 but mine and many others' were in spec.

My tires keep wearing out, and I have to wash the bugs off my 2006 quite a bit. Other then that it runs better then ever with close to 15000 miles.
