Wow - been a while since I posted. On a trip to Barbar this past summer the shift issue got so bad I couldn't get out of 2nd gear. Ended up replacing the shift pivot plate and star using the Triumph parts. Since I was in there, I also replaced the friction plates in the clutch which were down to about 40%.
Now the race/track season is over here in Texas, it's about time to tear down the bike and replace some of the bolts, etc. that have gotten worn over two seasons of racing.
NOTE - new to my stable is a fully tricked out Ninja 250R. It's so much fun! It also has much nicer suspension (AK-20 forks and JRI rear shock) that really inspires confidence. I'm thinking a suspension upgrade on the Daytona may be one of my next moves.
Also, I finally ended up selling my Street Triple and picking up a new BMW S1000XR for the street. :)
Used to be a motorcycle racer in CMRA once upon a time.
