Hello 675 community

I am currently in the process of buying a 2015 675r Eslick Edition from my buddy who just got rear ended on the bike. It has 2500 miles and needs some work but I am stoked to be venturing down this road. This will be the 3rd bike in my garage bc right now I own a 2012 zx6r and 2007 GSXR 750 track bike.

Looking forward to learning a lot from you all as this is the first Triumph Iíve owned.

Here is the bike as it sits now.

Hello 675 community

Started the tear down process to really get a look at what Iím dealing with and Iím very happy with what Iím looking at so far.

Purchased a complete oem subframe, a complete set of oem plastics, a set of sato frame sliders and a rear wheel used. Then I got an integrated tail light, a new tail tidy and some led blinkers for the sides.

Gratz on the bike man, these things are amazing. I purchased mine crashed as well and learned a ton while rebuilding. BTW Are you keeping the Arrow slip on?

Thank you very much I appreciate that. Definitely learning as I go. I can say that this bike is definitely easier to take apart than my zx6r...thank God.

Did you replace the subframe by any chance? This is getting kinda tricky.

I do plan on keeping the Arrow for now...if I see something I like better in the near future I will definitely replace it.

Luckily I didnt have to replace sub frame man, I had to replace stator and stator Cover, quick shifter, Clip ons with levers and controls, all fairings with headlight, Throttle Cables, and fix some exposed wiring that was shorting out the 5v sensors. She was good to go after that.

Yea let me know if you want to let it go in the future, iam in Jersey so i can take a trip to NY

Yea I have a complete subframe with the plastic inside but once I saw what is inside the subframe on the bike I got a little concerned.

I will definitely keep you posted on that.

Rebuild is finished and man is this bike pretty. I kept some of the red accents from the Eslick bike and I really love how it came out.

Next Iím gonna add some grips, and then powdercoat the rims gold/red stars.

Looking Great man, the color combo is beautiful. I ended up doing my first track day at NYST on the 7th then another one on the 22nd :), definitely hooked. How is NJMP compared to NYST?

Thank you very much for the kind words
Man...I can see this bike becoming my favorite very quickly.

NJMP is primarily right hand corners and itís a little more of a flowing track...less hairpin like corners.

Also, NJMP is about 15x the size of NYST so bring a pit bike. I use my mountain bike.
Jersey also has garages you can rent for the day, a pool and bar and their own hotel rooms above the garages. Itís a sweet set up bc they hold pro races there.

Gotta post more pics of this bike. I rode it for the first time today and man I love it!
While riding the Yellow arrow emblem half way fell off...weird but welcomed bc I had new ones waiting to put on.
