In the 48k miles I put in on my S3 the valves were checked on schedule but never needed to be adjusted.

The only mechanical failure I had was the radiator fan went out on me on a trip around the Grand Canyon. I stopped in at a KTM dirt bike shop and bought the fan they sell as an option for some of their bikes and subbed it in. That worked just fine for the remaining 20k miles i had the bike.

If you ever get the itch for a naked, the Daytona will share 95% of the equipment with the street triple. Good for cheap like myself. Cheap on insurance as well, and a tiny bit more comfortable

Mines an 07. Does it sound like clunking or like a low tone beeping? Only got 3, sold my Daytona 600 to Guy, traded my EBR in for down payment on a toy hauler

I'm willing to bet it's your fuel pump priming or butterfly valves though without hearing or seeing. Worth checking your stepper motor out in tune ECU

Our 3rd is a Grom. She's only 5' so it's low enough she can ride it and get both feet down. Get some fiberglass for the Daytona and track that, if you've already purchased appropriate springs. The 675 is mine for the track and with suspension work it's the best handling bike I've had

That's why I bought a salvage title. Motor and frame were still good, just the turn stops broke off, tons of fairing rash and it looked like the guy managed to flip it and scratch the rear subframe on top, the fairing stay and the dash. Works amazing for the track. Just bought my street triple a few months back and love being able to swap parts
