Triumph should make the 675 motor in one configuration and this is it.

Shit. After all this there is no way I'm not doing the mod. My problem is that bike is still in warranty and I am not a big fan of voiding that by removing the engine head. Plus that I am a do-it-yourself kind of guy but never changed camshafts in my life before, so I am a little apprehensive of screwing up the swap and messing up the bike. Should be pretty straightforward right? Either of you did a write-up back when you did the mod? If not, would you mind putting together a quick-and-dirty how-to on the subject? Or at least point to a reliable how-to on it?

EDIT: Also, I just remembered something. I did look into possible sources for purchasing the camshafts some time ago, just to get a rough idea on prices. I cannot remember the exact sellers, but I do remember that at least some of them we selling what they were calling "race" daytona camshafts. Anybody knows more about this? Is is just a misnomer or there actually are proper "racing" profiled daytona camshafts on top of the regular daytona ones? I suspect both of you installed the regular, "street" daytona camshafts? I might actually start a new thread about this after I look into it again.

There is a couple write ups and a couple how tos on valve adjustment which is the same procedure. It doesn't require removing the head. You're just removing the cams same as you would need to do to adjust the valves. Installing the cams on a triple and keeping them timed correctly is far more challenging then with a four cylinder. Personally no matter how much of a do it your selfer you are unless you've at least done a four cylinder or have helped do this before I would let an experienced tech do it. At least in that case if they get it wrong they can fix it at their cost.

As for cams the race cams are a longer duration profile designed to go along with the entire race build kit. It doesn't play well with a stock motor. If you keep your eyes open you'll find used cams for less then $200. If you have any other questions please post it in one of the Daytona cam threads so as not to clutter this thread and lead it off topic any further.

I'm interested in the Daytona Cams for my next mod the more I heard about it. Is there any concern about long term reliability?

I have a 2012 Street Triple and from my research, I would need a Daytona 09-12 cams. Can someone confirm?

The new bikes look sooooo good. I ordered my bike in 2007 sight unseen. She is still a beauty. Just a few mods makes this bike timeless with endless grins.
