    Step 1 Complete, it runs!!


    Reviving my Daytona on Saturday after 3 years 9 months of being neglected! Thankfully I put it away with new plugs, air filter, oil, chain, and sprockets.

    Need to evaluate the wheel and swing arm bearings and will do fork seals next week (unless they come in the mail by Friday).

    The list:
    Coolant Flush - Done
    Oil Change, run it, change again. - Done
    Fuel Quick disconnect replacement. - Done
    Brake Fluid Flush - Done
    New Pads
    Chain Maintenance
    RR wiring clean up and Solder
    Fuel Filter - Skipping
    Reinstall Exhaust
    Tires
    New Battery - Done
    Frame Sliders - Done
    Engine Case Guards - Done
    Cable lube/clean
    Integrated Signal Mirror Clean up/Solder
    HID wiring clean up/Solder - Changed to Replace with LED Bulbs
    Wash N Wax
    Engine Bolt Kit Install
    Fairing Bolt Kit Install

    Soon to be reinstated! So....soon I’ll get to find out if I even enjoy sportbikes anymore

    Well I think I know already.
    Otherwise there'd be no need for skintight leathers (not competition weight anyway) :sneaky:

    That's quite a mechanical "to do" list Rob. I guess I should quit procrastinating about pulling the front forks off my sidecar rig to get the tubes rebuilt

    Nice bike and looks in great condition. When I saw the headline I thought it was going to be a 675 Daytona. You don't see many of the 955s.

    This is mine - yes looks like a Speed Triple but is in fact a Daytona :D

    A 'Speed-Tona' or Naked Daytona if you like
