Never knew dealerships. Had demos. Learn somthing new everyday.

it seems to be the exception, rather than the rule.  Before I had my bike, but had my M1, the guys at SoCal told me all I needed was m1 and insurance.  I was on crutches at the time so they didn't let me test it then, but probably hasn't changed.

Its been a while since I posted n e thing on this three but I got news. Sold the gsxr yesterday and bought the 675 today. (Thanks to labluegsxr for selling me his ride) haven't gotten a chance to really test her out, but just the frwy ride home was awsome. I felt like wetting my panties. Really powerful for a lightweight. Changing gears is really smooth. Totally different feeling than my old gsxr. I can't Wait to take it to the canyons. Thanks for everones input. Ill post pics once it gets a bath.

That's odd, my only complaint on my D675 is the gearbox, it's really clunky compared to all the other middleweights.

Can. It feels a lot better than my old gsxr.  Rode the trump again yesterday to get steel for the lean. At the 405 and toll133 loops. Steering gets kind of loose exiting the turns. I'm I doing somthing wrong or has neone else felt this. Thinking of putting a stabalizer on it. Any inputs?

On my 08 Daytona, I have changed out my factory steering stabilizer for Hyper Pro adjustable unit. Much improved after the swap, since I can adjust for more damping. However, most improvement came after I had Teague at Cycle Mall adjust the stock suspension. Planning to get the rear suspension unit swapped out eventually.

yea right after. At 30 low on the front rear perfect. Can tire pressure make that much difference if it just a bit off.

any idea how much a stabilizer will set me back?

well probably not if it's your bike, but if your just getting used to a new one maybe. did tony adjust the suspension at all? if he has it siffened up, it may feel a bit twitchy to you. the Daytona is a very responsive bike, so my two cents is that before you buy stuff for it, just double check the settings and give yourself some time assess the bike for what it is.

also, if you have not checked it out already, triumph675.net has some very useful info.  :)

I got mine thru triumph675.net group buy. I think I paid around $350 with shipping. After installation, it helped somewhat in settle the bike thru turns. What worked most effectively is to soften the damping on the rear suspension, so it doesn't require front end to compensate for rear's harsh ride.

try adjusting your suspension by a mechanic before you get a stabilizer and see how that goes.. i heard tige at cyclemall does wonders..

Actually it's a known issue with the 06-08 models. On triumph675 someone in Australia made a rear suspension plate to correct the issue. Give the forum a search and I'm sure you'll find it.

There is no helmet lock, seeing how easy it is to steal a helmet on bike in the first place I don't see why you'd use one.

I once got my helmet strap cut with the buckle left on the bike. Not a good idea.
