Just thought I'd give a quick run down all in one spot of what is already installed as well as what's coming soon.

The "Have's"

Genmar risers(I believe)
Corbin seat w/ back rest
K&N Air Filter
Nology Coils

Dynojet kit(Needs uninstalled HORRIBLE MPG's)

Bought but not installed.

Clearview med. screen with prv cut outs.
DID X-Ring chain w/ 19/41 JT sprockets
Grip Puppies
Nelson Rigg soft bag for the rear(clearance item)

I'm planning to rebuild the master cylinder and if that doesn't do it, I'll buy some used busa' calipers and new pads to take care of my ill performing brakes. It's about as cheap to buy used busa parts are rebuild the stock calipers so why not give it a shot.

If this summer goes well, next season I may look into the suspension, the front could use work for sure and the rear probably isn't much better. To me it's always easier to realize an improvement than to judge stock as poor. I put a 929 shock on my old 5th gen VFR and it made a big improvement that I didn't know I needed.

You don't need to replace the calipers.

I dont want to replace the calipers,too busy fooling with dirtbikes to be taking streetbikes apart. Stock brakes are smooth and powerful enough on the 1200.

I assume, that here in mid of Germany the roads are not as they are in Texas. I'm mostly on short runs here in my region ... wonderful winding roads.
Have a look:
Hi All!
Since a couple of days I've got my Trophy back with new camshafts, rejetted, ignition adaption. GREAT!

Due to the already started winter here in Germany, she's now hibernating
But I'd like to share the sound with you:

All 91 & 92 Daytona's where either 750 or 1000cc. 91/92 Trophy's where 900/1200cc. The 1200 Daytona didn't come out till 93. I think the DE and AU Daytona's had the fabled blue dot cams. 3 different profiles where used. Red daytona, green trophy, and rumored blue daytona that falls between the red and green. I know some trophy owners tried the blue dot 1000 cams with good success. Red cams not so much.
The 1000cc red cams where carried over into the 1200 daytona.
Happy trails,
