Evidently the Hawaii DMV doesn't have D675s in their VIN data base. So, I had to get it weighed. Kind of pissed me off but, something I thought useful or interesting came out of it. I was also pleasantly surprised. My bike is and '07, completely stock and it had a FULL tank of gas. I'm almost tempted to fork over another $30 and get it weighed again after I put my TBR titanium can on. I think this is right on par with what the consensus is, but this confirms it.

Sorry, but we need an actual picture of the bike on the scale in order to trust this result. :whistle:

That seams about right. Triumph website says the bike is 417lbs wet. I say 408lbs once you put the TBR on there?!

The last weigh scale I went to only went in 10 lb increments. So it was an estimation of weight. This might be the same for you but it is close to claimed wet weight so not bad.

Honolulu's DMV works in strange ways. The Daytonas are listed on their files, but only if the bike was sold from South Seas (or any licensed dealer on the island). The way it basically works is that the dealers send in the VIN for the bikes that they receive, and that gets updated into the DMV's database. You have to get all that data checked out yourself if you end up bringing a bike in from out of state. I had an especially hard time getting my Super Duke registered when I lived there, as it was bought in SoCal, and immediately shipped (without registration) to Honolulu. Talk about a pain in the ass!
