Just curious, how are you finding the GSXR 750 compared to the 675R? Comparable performance? What's better, what's worse?
Well, I just got back from day one on GSXR. Honestly, I am enjoying it more than the Daytona right now.
Comparable performance for me, I think that a lot is dependent on the skill of the rider.
I like the gearing on the GSXR, 2nd gear is so usable from low speed hairpins, to high speed sweepers.
I enjoyed the softer suspension of the GSXR...but then again, I specifically had the Daytona tuned on the hard side.
Brakes on the Daytona were better, but that is full brembo/braided lines.
My GF likes the sound of the Daytona better lol, but hopefully that will change when my Akra slip on arrives.
I was hesitant about the stock tires, but they are performing much better than I expected. I became a tire snob with the Daytona, only riding Pirelli Supercorsa, but the Battleaxe 016s aren't half bad.
I hate that the clutch lever has to be pulled to the bar to start the bike/find neutral. I imagine this is something that can adjusted.
Triumph, bought your bike back from you, b/c of issues with the bike?
Yes sir. It spent more than 80 days in the shop (during riding season here in NY), in the last year. I was patient, I gave them 5 attempts to fix the motorcycle. On the last visit, it was in the shop for 5 weeks before I emailed everyone at Triumph...including CEO, CFO, etc. I got a phone call for the buy out offer 2 days later.
