The can however is Black Widow most likely - one of the very few undertail systems; should have its own inner fender/battery tray too.

Without a dyno how much can be done?

Glad you mentioned it. I had forgot to mention it Thanks. Kinda reminds me of the extra noise my Harley had.

I found a sale thread for this bike on a local forum... from the guy who owned it before this guy. No mention of header or cams... SO. Chalk that up to BS

Is Black Widow the model of Wunoff? It's def a wunoff. Welded on badging says so at least. Loud as ****. I'd be looking into baffles or packing the thing somehow.

And heres a pic of the bike from the owner before the guy that owns it now (the sale thread on a local board didn't mention the header or cams, so I'm writing that off as BS)


Anyone have any input on what I'd be in for?

Ahks, Even though it was remotely possible, I was very doubtful WRT the headers and cams remark. Those are the OEM primaries and collector. There was a "race kit" offered by Triumph that changed the exhaust cam to what has become known as the 1999 cam, which is five degrees advanced compared to the '97 and '98 cam. Some later production '98s appear to have that cam anyways, BTW. The exhaust cam didn't add power, but smoothed idle somewhat from all that I've read.

The wheels are either repainted or from a later gen1 D955i. Other aftermarket additions are the Corbin saddle, Sky King sliders and turn signals.

PS Any tuning system works best with a dyno and an EGA, but many non performance items can be tinkered with. We have a fair collection of proven tunes and a knowledge base of TuneECU users that I think is second to none.

Another bit that popped into mind when I was writing my stream of consiousness is the trans...

Anyone have a comparison to a sportster or a honda cbr? The shifter felt sloppy and notchy, nuetral was hard to find... But while accelerating, hold the shifter up, slight clutch squeeze, throttle twitch and it shifts like butter thru the gears.

Id also like to apologize for the barrage. I love my CBR and will be rather sour if I move to a different bike that ends up screwing me

Ahks, Neutral is pretty easy to find for me and I come from a long line of Kawasakis with a positive neutral finder. Clutch adjustment and oil can make a difference in shifting. So can a shifter that's not in a position that you're used to. For a comparison I can only use a RC51 and a ZX6. The RC was pretty much the same and the ZX6 was easier WRT shifter effort and 'snickability'. A non linkaged shifter from the '00 or '01 will help if you prefer a longer throw when shifting.

From what I remember... I think it felt more like a sloppy shifter. The sloppy shifter played hell on poking it into neutral.

I'm rapidly approaching this decision being a coin flip...

Thanks again for sticking with me.

Ahks, We forgot to answer one of your questions, unless I read over it...T595 was the internal model designation, it appeared on the early production models similar to Chevrolet's Z28 designation. It caused confusion as to displacement and was deleted for '99.

Heh yeah I figured that one out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triumph_Daytona_955i

We've got rain and cold in the forecast for the next couple days being on the western edge of the "Sandy" weather system. I'm gonna contact the guy tomorrow and see if I can drop by with a check list and go over the bike real well, and hopefully with a friend.

It already passed the emotional tests and it is straight and runs straight (did the 30mph let go of the handlebars test) So if it passes a relatively objective inspection... and is still available... I'll go forward with it.
