    Hi. I just bought a 2013 Daytona 675r from a guy. He says he was the only owner and that the bike is bone stock and he has never modified any part of the motorcycle. Everything seemed normal with the bike until after the first ride to work I realize I was flat footing the motorcycle. I've owned a Daytona before and I was not able to flat foot that one. I checked under the shock and it has a linkage that says PSR on it. My question is did triumph make a lowered Daytona 675r? And if so is this the linkage that they would've use? Or did this guy have the motorcycle lowered and isn't telling me. He is adamant that he never modified anything before. It doesn't appear that he has any reason to lie.

    In answer to one part of you’re mystery PSR do make an adjustable length lowering link, Triumph didn’t make a lowered Daytona, doesn’t answer the question of who fitted it though

    Maybe he just forgot, if he got the dealer to sort it early on?

    They’ll do anything if you pay them

    Thanks for the reply. He Says he just bought it brand new and never ask the dealer to do anything to it. He says beside the services he never asked the dealer for anything else

    Maybe they had taken deposit on a previous buyer and changed it for them, who then backed out?
    All kinds of possiblities.

    OK. Thanks guys. Next question would be is does anyone know if the psr link has enough adjustability to return the bike to stock height or do I just have to go out and buy the oem link.? Also where should the fork height be set once returned to stock height in the rear

    12mm for the front forks.

    I have similar adjustable link and it can be set to stock length and can go a bit more to put the bike higher than standard too if needed.

    i dont know the stock length, but you could just adjust it until you feel comfortable.
