2013 Daytona 675 stock suspension
Hi, Iíve searched for info but canít find what Iím looking for.
I have a 2013 Daytona 675 ďnonĒ r for track days. Never plan to race it and Iím a novice track rider.
I also have a 2013 street triple ďnonĒ r. I rode it on the track last year. It was a good ride but immediately felt the rear suspension was cruddy and soft especially on the rebound. I decided to put an eBay ďrĒ shock on it for some adjustability but never took it back to the track. The track Iím referencing is rough. This year I rode the Daytona for the 1st time last weekend and found it a much better ride than the street triple. However I found this suspension to be harsh. Not bad like the street triple but just harsh on this rough track.
I know 1st thing I need to do is check and set sag. And I will. (Supposedly this bike was set up already with the previous rider my weight). But I know thatís no excuse especially when Iím complaining about itís harshness. My question is even know it has adjustable preload front an back, compression and rebound, is this ďnonĒ r stock suspension hopeless? Or with proper springs and some tuning will it get me in the ball park without spending a pile on a whole new suspension? I probably wouldnít even mind paying a professional to help me set this up but replacement seems out of the question cost wise because it doubles with some street duty as well. Otherwise I would have just bought a dedicated track bike.
Thoughts? Experiences? Thanks!
