I can't understand why you would do this, the daytona is perfect as it is.
Its like giving the mona lisa a haircut, it would look stupid. Some things just cannot be improved on and the daytona is one of those.
also, why didn't you guys just buy street triples?
This is why I did this to mine:
So first off, why am I doing this? Why am I going to rip apart a beautiful looking bike? Why donít I just buy a Street Triple? Well, I love the Daytona, the engine the handling, etc. I just canít get on with a sports bike on the road. I find them too uncomfortable. I have a GSX-R1000 that I race anyway, so I donít need another sports bike.
Why not buy a Street Triple I hear you cry? Well, no offence to those who own one, but I donít like the looks. The twin cans and twin headlights donít do it for me. I love the Daytonaís rear end though.
As we often read in the bike mags, when a manufacturer turns a sports bike into a road bike (like R1 to Fazer), they detune the engines, fit cheaper suspension, brakes, etc and basically take away all the good bits.
So that is pretty much it. Plus I wanted a project bike. So thatís what I have, a 2006 Daytona. Not even a crashed one. I did consider that, but where I live itís hard to get hold of crash damaged bikes as they are all shipped off to the UK.
