I thought I would get up some details of my 07 Daytona 675 and some updates from when I bought it until now after a year of ownership.
I had wanted a Daytona 675 for many years after seeing them when they were first released, I had a red one as my screensaver many moons ago and said that one day I would get a hold of one. When this fine example popped up I knew I had to have it as they are a pretty rare bike in my part of the world.
I will try capture as many updates as I can and mods I have done. I have put many hours of time both in research and hands on to get the bike how it is at the minute and although I have done lots to it, there are still plenty of small finishing touches to be done.
2007 Triumph Daytona 675 - Gen1 in the fastest color Tornado Red ;).
The bike had almost 3000km on it when it was bought a year ago, which was extremely low for almost an 11 year old bike and the condition reflected that, almost new. It had barely any use and must have sat in a shed most of its life. The bike was pretty much standard except for a Two brothers exhaust and tail tidy and was just the way I wanted it, clean original un-abused example and a blank canvas to start modding, little did I know how addictive this would become and how much of a money pit
This forum, along with a few others, google and youtube have helped with a lot of my research into parts I wanted, what would work and look good and what wouldnt. I have fabbed a few bits and experimented with parts, some worked some havent and the way the bike looks and will in the end is due to some trial and error all costing me money, you win some you loose some but all part of the game.
List at the minute of parts that I can think of that is ever building:
- Competition Werkes Twin exhaust.
- Metzeller M7RR tyres
- Kineo tubeless spoke wheels (gloss black/silver/red)
- Decat/Exup deleted header.
- Zero Gravity Sports Touring screen
- 1050 Throttle mod.
- 09-12 modified grill.
- Rear Triumph OEM cowl.
- Arrow Triumph rearsets with optional extra arrow flip up foot pegs along with pro-bolt black bolts (not cheap
- 13-16 Daytona 675 KYB shock & red spring.
- Triumph front & rear black anodized brake reservoirs.
- Motodynamic black rear LED light with integrated indicators.

Over the last year I have probably done about 3500km or so an loved every minute of it and my direction of upgrades has changed as I have used it more. I love using OEM upgrade parts which Triumph makes a lot and have great instructions online and are high quality.
I dont just put any crap on my bike and anything that has gone on needs to be 100% as I am a bit OCD with it and no butchering allowed.
A few pics from start to now and will get updated pics at the weekend of how it sits now.
