I bought this bike completely stock a few months ago from Stuart Toomey.



Here are some current pics of the Daytona.



Upgrades so far include:



Spec II F-1 Chambers

Spec II High Output Coils

Mikuni 30mm Carburetors

TDR Reeds

K&N Filter Y-Boot

Bridgestone BT45 Tires



This time, I"m saving all the stock parts.

I just installed a set of Progressive front springs today, looking to replace the factory shocks with a set from Works.

I painted the pipes with PJ1 high temp flat black paint and got another set of alloy M Factory West silencers for a different look.

I just installed RZ 350 intake boots and the intake manifold balance tube to go along with the rest of the mods.

It made a huge difference in mid range power and smoothes out the rough spot between 5k - 6k.



I also powder coated the springs black for a much better appearance.
