Gotcha. I was envisioning some butt ugly frame thing that covered the plastics.

And no need to justify the Ohlins. Planning on doing a full Ohlins upgrade on my Harley. Going the "anti-SOA" route with it.

Love the orange and white combo. Gonna look great!

Daytona 675 Project

When I planned this project I set a budget of $2000. I did go over budget and ended up spending $2400. As I tore the bike apart there were a few things that I found that needed to be replaced. When I had the wheels and clutch cover powder coated the bearings in them got dried out from the baking process. I did not anticipate the cost of the bearings or the labor to install them. I also found that all my coolant hoses needed to be replaced. There were also a few things that ended up costing more than I had anticipated. Overall, I think I did a pretty good job of trying to stay close to the budget. I prioritized my list of things I wanted to do and figured out how much of the most important items I could accomplish on the budget. I will also post some more lessons learned and how-to's.

One of the items on my list was mirrors with built in turn signals. I purchased there ones on eBay. However, when I test fitted them on the bike they stood straight up because they didn't have angled mounts like the stock mirrors did. I ended up modifying them a bit to work with the stock mounts. I had to do was drill the holes for the pivoting joint out a little larger so the stock pins could fit through. Then I drilled a small hole through the the mounts to route the power cable through. Here are pics of the final product. You'll notice the power cable is not fixed to the inside of the front fairing. This is because I still have to paint the fairings so I didn't bother dressing the cables. I was really happy with the way these turned out, they are very bright.

Orange being my favorite color, and your bike being the faster brother of mine, this is sexy af. Nicely done!

I'm looking to repaint my '14 STR at some point, and have poked around trying to see how much of a pain in the ass it's going to be, and concluded that the rear subframe is going to be a b*tch to remove. Considering how far you tore this down, I'm assuming you're rather experienced with this stuff - any tips on how to get that off? In particular, I couldn't figure out how that big black box behind the battery comes off (might not be the same on the Daytona). It doesn't appear to have any screws, but there is some weird metal clip-looking thing that may require some special tool to release.

Thank you @wooden. I think most of that should be the same as a Daytona. Since yours is a 14 it is going to be more similar to the 14 Daytona. They changed the subframe design on both models in 2012. Mine had a few screws attaching it to the subframe. Yours should be the same. They should be Allen heads.

@triumph chick
Isn't every bike a project bike? Lol. Unless you have to commute with it. I only ride during the summer so I have all winter to tinker with the bike.

Guess I'll have to dig around some more, I couldn't find any fastener that I was familiar with holding that damn box down...

Here are some updates to my initial list of project goals:


-powder-coat the rear sets, tail frame, rims, tank, and engine covers (this was completed by Forever Powder-coating)
-paint the plastics (this will happen once the weather warms up)
-520 chain sprocket conversion (purchased a 520 DID chain and super sprockets with a +1 on the front and -2 on the back from ebay)
-integrated tail light (purchased a motodynamics integrated taillight from ebay)
-competition werkes exhaust (purchased this used from CL)
-integrated turn signal mirrors (purchased from ebay no-name brand)
-driven block-off plates (purchased from PNW member)
-coolant hoses (purchased from Triumph of Tacoma)
-brake pads (purchased galfer pads from CycleGear)
-air filter (purchased K&N filter from CycleGear)
-wheel bearings (purchased AllBalls bearins from BikeBandit.com, installed at Gixxertek)
-oil & oil filter (purchased Mobil1 oil and K&N filter from CycleGear)
-coolant and brake fluid flush (purchased SuperCool coolant from CycleGear)
-pro-bolt engine covers and body bolt kits (Purchased from Pro-bolt.com)
-spark plugs (purchased NGK plugs from CycleGear)
-tuneecu tune (purchased data-cord from ebay/downloaded Tuneecu software and did the tune myself, I still plan on having Nel's tune it though)

Things that were not on the initial list:

The wheel bearings were actually not on the initial list. Nor were the shifter rod bearings on the clutch cover. I found that after I got all my parts back powder-coated that the bearings had either been removed or were dried out because of the baking process when coated. So I ended up having to get new ones and have them installed. The coolant hoses were also not planned, but after I started tearing into things I realized they were not in great shape so I replaced them and the hose clamps. I also had to purchased valve cover bolts and washers. After taking the valve cover off I found that the bolts and washers were in poor shape and needed to be replaced. The gaskets for all the engine covers was another thing I ended up replacing. I wasn't sure if they were re-usable gaskets or not. They all needed to be replaced, even the valve cover gasket which is a rubber one. The gaskets, washers, valve cover bolts, clutch cover bearings, and coolant hoses were all special order at Triumph. They had almost none of those items in stock.

@wooden Here is a diagram showing where the screws attach the tray to the subframe. You can find diagrams like these at bikebandit.com under oem parts.

Yeah - it's the black box right behind the fuses, with what I believe is the OBDII connector sitting next to it. I can't find it in any of the diagrams, and my owner's manual doesn't mention much about it. It's got a tube coming out of both sides, presumably some wires, though I haven't traced them very far. It essentially takes up a fair amount of the under-seat space, such that some of the things I've stuffed in there end up sliding underneath it, making them hard to reach.

It's obviously something electrical, though its purpose is unclear as it's not labeled and it's not in BikeBandit's OEM part listings for any electrical connections, or the rear subframe section..

I'll run out to my bike during lunch and snap a photo of it.

That is your evap canister. You can find the diagram under emissions components. You can actually delete that quite easily without having to worry about throwing a code.

Ah, thank you very much! I'd been wondering if I could get rid of that damn thing for a while, but had no idea what it was. Off it goes this weekend!

Thanks again!

I just picked up a new Saddleman gel seat and pillion cover from a guy locally today. I still have to finish fastening the pillion cover all the way cuz I ran out of staples. I will finish it this weekend and post pics.
