A guy on 675.net was selling an 08 with the Arrow 3-1 exhaust, Ohlins shock, and Daytona forks for a great price. I intended to flip it, but then changed my mind and converted it to a track bike. It's nice being able to apply track riding skills directly to my street bike since the ergos are the same. I have stock bars and rearsets, no problems with clearance, though some people change to Daytona rearsets. Clip ons are possible, though the instrument cluster may need to be pushed forward with a different bracket.

I did have Brooks put in a set of Daytona cams though, and it will now outrun a Daytona for some reason (or at least the one I saw at NCBIKE).

No real reliability issues to speak of, though I don't think they're as bulletproof as a Japanese bike. Valve adjustments are every 12k unlike 24k on the FZ6 and FZ1. Parts are generally available and there's a very good Triumph dealer in Dulles. Things not in stock usually take about a week to get in.
