Not sure where you're getting this from, but I absolutely guarantee this is NOT the case. Sorry , not trying be a jerk about it, haha. But none of the 675 variations come with a slipper clutch standard, I'm fairly sure no Triumph comes with one period, actually.

Anyway I'm torn between picking up an older Daytona, or going for the shiny new street triple..
Just have a few questions for you fine Gents of the Triumph board:
-Do any of Daytona's come with a slipper clutch (or the Stripler for that matter)?
-Will a 3-1 Arrow Low exhaust (made for street triple) fit on a Daytona? (Has anybody had any experience frankensteining something Low?)
Aside from Dealers and ebay does anyone know where I can source some triple clamps (I have some wrist problems, so will at the very least either be putting bars on the Daytona, or getting some clip ons with risers)? Also has anybody done this/have any knowledge on fairing clearance issues?
Thanks for your help, hope to be joining the family soon.
1. No Daytona or Striple comes with a slipper standard.
2. A 3-1 arrow low exhaust will ONLY fit on a pre-09 Daytona. The 09+ Daytona engines have different shaped exhaust ports, but the pre-09 and the Striple exhausts are compatible with each other.
3. For maximum comfort, I've found the best setup for the Daytona is: Helibars for clip ons, Saddlemen gel seat, and Attack Performance rearsets.
As for the Daytona vs Striple thing, I've had a Daytona for 3 years and in retrospect wish I had gotten a Striple. Daytonas for the street are just stupid. I love my bike to death and would never trade it for anything, but that's just how I see it, haha. I'm converting my bike to a pure track bike soon so it worked out for the best, but every time I rode a Striple I wished I had gotten one for comfort on the street, plus they look awesome.
