WTB: Daytona (Street R) Suspension; Front and Rear

Looking to convert my 08 Street Triple's front end to R spec.

I'm most interested in 09+ forks/calipers, but would consider 06-08 if the price is right. Would like them to be in good condition, no large gouges or dents.

Also looking for a Daytona master brake cylinder, any model year (I'm under the impression that these are the same from 06-12). Again, something in good shape without rash is ideal.

Lastly, a Street Triple R brake line. This might just need to get ordered.

Everything shipped to 75025

So if you've got a complete front end, let me know.

Summary:

Daytona or STR forks

Daytona or STR front brake master cylinder

STR brake line

Daytona forks are considerably firmer than the R-spec - not knowing what you weigh, this can make quite a difference come time to set them up/adjust, and if you are below 170 pounds then you will need to re-spring the Daytona forks (and thus should probably limit your search to the R-spec forks or be prepared to deal with altering Daytona forks).

Just thought I'd throw this out there so you were not caught off guard.

Thanks Neanderthal. I'm aware of the difference in spring rate. I weigh 185 sans equipment, so I figure I'll slap them on and see what happens as far as setting preload. If I can't get decent sag numbers, then it's off to racetech for new springs and maybe some improved valving. No worries if its not a direct bolt on swap from the get go.

We are roughly the same weight (when I'm depriving myself of carbs, lol). I have forks from a '10 Daytona. They are pretty stiff, but tolerable. I'm still tweaking settings, just going slow at it. I posted up a thread (in the Street Triple section) hoping all the folks that did this swap would share their settings, but so far I've been shot down pretty hard by folks that have not done the swap and don't have a clue that we don't have a "Manual" to show us a starting point like the D675 and R guys do, lol. A lot of folks paid someone to do the work and they don't have the settings handy. I saw a lot of value in a proposed database for future swappers, guess I was wrong. Best of luck in your search - watch eBay and Craigslists like a hawk.

Good call on the database. If I were you, and it sounds like you are having a hard time getting it dialed in, maybe just have a trackside suspension guy set you up? I spent the $40 to get just my rear shock (R) setup and it made a world of difference.

I've been watching eBay. A really nice set came up for $675 (cute...) but I hesitated. The last time I bought forks I got a set of perfect condition 998 forks for 250 bucks shipped. These Daytona forks are prrriiiiiiiicey. There's a set in England that look brand new. The guy is asking $1000 shipped. All his stuff is almost double the norm though. I dunno, I'm about to just eat it and order them. Maybe I can talk them into adding the monobloc calipers for their asking price. I was hoping to stay under $1000 for the entire front end.
