Do you guys know if the gearing or sprockets are different on the Triple vs the Daytona's? I went to go pick up my bros '01 triple and I can lift the front wheel on it a lot easier than my 04 daytona. What gives? I haven't check the sprockets yet because both bikes are burried away in my garage under covers for the winter. Just figured I would ask the pros.

How did I know cheapbastard was going to be the first to reply and exactly what his reply was going to be?

I don't know about that. Although, the next bike I buy will be a speed triple. Ever ridden a daytona? :razz:

I know they will both pop up with little effort, trust me :wink: . I just wonder if he has a spocket kit on his then. He bought it used and it had some mods already on it. I mean, this thing REALLY takes off on you if you don't watch it. Fun bike to ride. He also has a Maxx underseat he got from Australia and it sounds great. I can't wait for spring. Winter is for the birds man. Snow + Cold = SUCKS!! Why do I live in Chicago???? :(

That is a helluva deal. I am not denying anything. I LOVE the speed triples. I will never sell my Tona, just add to the collection. The only reason I bought the daytona is because I think it is a little better of a touring bike and I was planning on taking some long road trips which have yet to happen. Oh well. I seriously think I would get served with divorce papers. No joke. She absolutley hates all my toys, but hey, she married me and they came with the territory. :razz:

The daytona is not that bad, and on the highway it is a little better as far as the wind goes. The fairing help out. I know my brother is always bitching about how his bike sucks vs mine for being able to duck down and get out of the drag from the wind.

There's a used Daytona at the shop here. Probably five or six grand in goodies including lots of cf and Ohlins all around. They want $10,500. It's almost good enough to make me want to swap the S3.

Almost.

One thing I can say is that you guys seem to have a much bigger following and there is a lot more to talk about in here vs the daytona room. I spend more time here than there. They have tumble weeds rolling through there every hour on the hour. :-D
