I bought my Daytona because i wanted a "real world" sport bike.
First month i had it...absolutely did not like it. It felt slow, the brakes were bad, i couldn't get myself comfy and i generally felt like i had made a huuuuge mistake.
Thankfully, the market for a 955 Daytona in Cyprus is limited. As in, i'm it. So, since i couldn't sell it, i had to get it to the point where i could ride it and like it. So after reading and asking and reading some more and pestering various members of various forums, it began.
Got rid of the bazooka they call an exhaust, got a high-mount Triumph exhaust. Pulled SAI. Remapped.
Geared too tall. Two teeth up on the rear.
Adjusted suspension (yeah, i should've done that to begin with)
Hated how i had to re-grip the throttle to get it all the way open. Installed Barracuda throttle tube and cam.
Absolytely freakin hated the riding position. Bought Tarozzi clip-ons, installed those. While i was at it, got a radial brake m/c from a GSX-R and replaced the OEM.
Result: When we went out last week, for the first time since i've had the big D i can honestly say that i had an absolute blast riding it. The new m/c gives me the braking action i like (although i'm waiting for a set of caliper seals and brake pads to complete the brake overhaul), the new clip-ons actually give me some leverage and the bike ripped through the turns like i thought it could when i bought it. She just might be a bit of a keeper.
I gotta say though, i did more work on this bike in 6 months than i did on my 955 Tiger in 6 years.
