Limited to 500. They've got some special con-rods in them which makes the bikes so expensive.


Sounds like homogalation for race engines.

In Fairness Kawasaki will have there work cut out with the Ducati V4 next year

Re: Main Dealer Servicing

I have had a bad experience with a Honda dealer on recall work before also. As far as I can see it's quote common, well is so in my experience. That said I did use the Ducati main dealer with no issues and although I prefer to home service I decided to use the main dealer to protect residual value a...

Re: Main Dealer Servicing

Depends on the dealer. You can be sure that if you mention the name of a dealer someone will pipe up with "I had a bad experience there". Sadly mechanics are human like everyone else and the can miss things. Then there are the dealers who don't give a shit. Action Motorcycles in Redditch ...

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Quick looks at the link says "Triumph Daytona 675, only up to VIN # 564947" and mine is a later bike so assume the above is correct.

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

You could use TuneECU to change the temp that the fans come on. Won’t make it run any cooler but might stop it going over 105 at traffic lights. http://www.tuneecu.com I was told you cannot use Tune ECU on the 13 MY bikes. I read it somewhere and a dyno centre I spoke to said the same. I believe it...

Re: Main Dealer Servicing

Valve clearances aren't as difficult as you might think R1ckster, if you follow a procedure with plenty of decent photographs, work methodically and triple check everything you do. If your happy and competent at home servicing and can change spark plugs, it might be worth trying the clearance check ...

Re: If you get stopped in the Thames Valley, Hants or West M

Like kwacky, I get my eyes tested at least every 2 years, mainly as I wear spectacles. I never really gave it much thought till now but I imagine there are many people on the roads with poor eyesight. I must confess I'm guilty of just assuming everyone was up to the required standard, but clearly th...

Main Dealer Servicing

Cant say I m impressed with the so called experts looking after my bike. I've just bought a 4 & 1/2 year old bike with Full Main Dealer service history. There is 4 stamps in the book by 3 different dealers. The bike was last serviced 110 mile before I collected it. A quick look round the bike on...

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

I might add some water wetter to help it run cooler when I do a coolant change in the winter.

Plus I'll check there is no air in the system as a precaution to ensure it's operating at maximum efficiency.

Appreciate all and any advice. Cheers chaps

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Quick look at the manual and the 675 only has 2 litres of coolant and most bikes are 50% more at circa 3 litres. I would suggest the overheating is due to the small capacity and the inability for the radiator to cool it in hot conditions. I guess the design team found using a litre less saved a kilo...
