a 2006 D675? I know every year brings more enhancements, and I think the 2006 was the first D675 (not totally sure about that), so they can often have a lot of problems that are fixed in later models.

I am looking at possibly moving to the D675 and will possibly purchase a 2006 next week.

So - any reason I should wait and look for a 2007 or later model?

I probably have one of the first few 675's that made it to San Diego. I haven't had one problem with it since. I wouldn't hesitate to get a 2006 model.

I'm one of the old skools on here also that has a 2006. Only major problem I had was the heat exchanger failing on me....after 18K miles--with half of them mostly being track miles. Knock on wood...my "rectum-fryer" hasn't failed on me yet.

In regards to enhancements, and correct me if Im wrong, but i dont believe any real changes were made to the bike until 2009 anyway. So a 07 is not going to be any different than an 06 or an 08 for that matter.

Indeed. And they still haven't really solved the R/R problem, lol.

Great - I was hoping for that. Just wasn't sure. Thanks guys.

I hope this one I plan to see next week turns out to be as nice as the pics. Totally beautiful bike. Been loving these since I saw my first one up close during the Summer. Already made my mind up to deal with that R/R thing.

Thanks again for all the replies.

I've noticed various posts about 675s having issues with oil burning, regulator failures, cam chain tensioners, and valve drops (i.e. destroyed motor top end).

I have no idea if these are "1 out of a 1000" type problems, and if design changes in later models years quietly fixed any of these issues. I'd sure like to know more on this, as I'm looking to buy a 675 myself.

idk about 1 in 1000, but theyre rare enough. Just like any high performance machine really, the guys that have the most issues are the people that track/race it. I picked up my bike with 9000 street miles on it and it never had one problem. some guys on here have alot more than that, with few issues worth mentioning.

The most common inherent problem is clearly the R/R, and it's not even that prevalent.

That being said - what is the fix for this issue? Is it easy? I am thinking myself of getting a 2009 model soon and am concerned about the number of mentions this issue attracts.

you can go aftermarket cbr series, mosfet (or something like that), hell i just went back stock. took about 7k miles to go out, so 130 bucks after that many miles i have no problem with.

I have an 08 and I haven't had any EXUP Problems or R/R issues.
15,000 Miles
1. Gear Shift Sensor Replaced at 1,000 miles
2. 12,600 miles, Detent Spring replaced.
3. Burns a slight amount of oil probably from following the break in sticker on tank. But it's also a Triumph.. LOL

EXCELLANT BIKE WOULDN'T HESITATE TO RIDE ACROSS COUNTRY WITH IT
