Triumph Daytona 675 (2013-2017) Maintenance Schedule and Service Intervals

This is the maintenance schedule and service intervals for the Triumph Daytona 675 (non-R, the standard version), Triumph’s second-generation track bike, the more entry-level version next to its stablemate the Daytona 675R.

Here are all our Triumph Daytona maintenance schedules:

The Daytona 675 was made in this version between 2013 and 2017, succeeding the earlier 2009-2012 Daytona 675 (which was a revision of the original). Like its predecessor, the 2013-2017 Triumph Daytona 675 is powered by a 675cc inline three-cylinder engine, a “triple”.

But in the 2013-onward Daytona, the engine is all-new. It has a shorter stroke, higher rev limiter, and an aggressive 13.1:1 compression ratio. At peak, this engine makes 95 kW / 128 PS at 125000 rpm, or peak torque of 75 Nm / 55 ft-lb at 11900 rpm, but with more torque across the rev range as well. This is the same specification as for the R model.

Final drive is via a wet clutch, six-speed transmission, and chain drive.

The Triumph Daytona 675 was retired after this model as efforts were redirected into mid-range Street Triple bikes, like the 765cc Triumph Street Triple R.

Triumph Daytona 675 Service Intervals

Overall, the Triumph Daytona 675 has 6000 mile / 1000 km or annual service intervals.

At every service, change the oil and filter, and do a number of checks shown below in the service schedule.

Every 12000 miles / 20000 km, change the spark plugs and the air filter, and check the valve clearances.

You also need to regularly service the brake fluid and the coolant, as well as attend to the chain of course, particularly if you use your Daytona aggressively.

Triumph also recommends changing fork oil every 24000 miles / 40000 km.

What you need to service the Triumph Daytona 675 (2013-2017)

If you want to do a service on your Triumph Daytona 675, you need the following consumable items. Note some parts are different to other years/models.

PartTriumph Daytona 675
Engine oilThe manual suggests semi or fully synthetic 10W/40 or 10W/50 motorcycle engine oil which meets specification API SH (or higher) and JASO MA, such as Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) engine oil, or an alternative high-end synthetic like Motul 7100 10W-40.
Oil filterReplace the oil filter every time you change the oil. Use Triumph part number T1218001. You can also use Hiflofiltro part HF204RC.
Spark plugsUse NGK spark plugs with code CR9EIA-9. Make sure they’re gapped to 0.9mm with an appropriate spark plug gap tool.
Air filterUse K&N replacement part TB-6713.
CoolantTriumph uses HD4X Hybrid Organic Acid Technology coolant with a 50% ethylene glycol mix. A common replacement for HD4X is Motorex M5.0 (See here for HD4X alternatives)
Brake padsFront: EBC part FA491HH for the Nissin calipers for the base (non-R) model.
Rear: EBC part FA140HH

Maintenance schedule for the Triumph Daytona 675 (2013-2017)

This is the maintenance schedule for the Triumph Daytona 675 (base model, 2013-2017 years). It’s reformatted from the manual to make it easier to parse


  • [T] means you’d need Triumph or dealer-specific tools for these items.
  • The schedule has many items it recommends you check every day (or at every ride), e.g. checking for leaks or calibration. Do these with the annual/regular services as well.

Daily maintenance items

Do these checks on your Triumph Daytona 675 before riding or daily. Many of these maintenance checks can be done easily if you park your bike on a clean surface (so you can observe drips), or as you ride away (e.g. does the kickstand stick, is the throttle play OK, etc.).

More importantly, do these checks as part of every scheduled service.

Triumph Daytona 675 — Daily checks
Engine oil cooler – check for leaks
Throttle cables – check/adjust
Cooling system – check for leaks
Coolant level – check/adjust
Fuel system – check for leaks, chafing etc.
Lights, instruments and electrical systems – check
Steering – check for free operation
Forks – check for leaks/smooth operation
Brake fluid levels – check
Brake pad – check wear levels
Brake master cylinders – check for fluid leaks
Brake calipers – check for fluid leaks and seized pistons
Drive chain slack – check/adjust
Drive chain rubbing strip – check
Fasteners – inspect visually for security
Wheels – inspect for damage
Tire wear/tire damage – check
Tire pressures – check/adjust
Clutch cable – check/adjust
Stand – check operation

Chain maintenance

Maintain the chain on your Triumph Daytona 675 periodically. Do this after long rides or weekly (or so) if commuting.

Chain maintenance itemEvery
Drive chain – lubricate (Motul chain paste)200 miles (300 kms)
(or after riding in wet or cleaning bike)
Drive chain – check wear500 miles (800 kms)
Chain maintenance — Triumph Daytona 675

To check wear of the Triumph Daytona 675, hang a 10-20 kg (20-40 lb) weight on the chain. Measure the length of 20 links of the straight part of the chain (from the 1st to 21 pin). Make the measurement in a few places to be sure.

If the length of any section of the chain exceeds 319 mm or 12.6 inches, replace the chain, as well as the sprockets.

Triumph Daytona 675 and 675 R Chain Slack Adjustment

To measure the drive chain slack, follow the following steps. You need torque wrenches and a ruler.

  1. Put the motorcycle in neutral and on its side stand.
  2. Rotate the wheel and find the tightest point of the chain, moving the motorcycle back and forth until you find it.
  3. Get a ruler. Use a finger, push up on the middle of the chain (the mid-point between the sprockets). Measure the deflection of the chain from top to bottom.

The deflection on the Triumph Daytona 675 should be 28-38 mm, or 1.1-1.5 inches.

If the deflection is off, loosen or tighten the chain by this process:

  1. Loosen the rear wheel spindle nut and release the lock nuts
  2. Move both adjusters until you get the right tension. Make sure you keep rear wheel alignment.
  3. Tighten the adjuster nuts to 27 Nm / 20 lb-ft.
  4. Tighten the rear wheel spindle nut to 110 Nm / 81 lb-ft.

Make sure that the chain slack is correct with everything tightened up.

About the Triumph Daytona 675 / 675R (2013-2017)

Triumph Daytona 675 white static outdoor

The Triumph Daytona 675 really stole the show when it appeared. It was an unbeatable proposition — a British bike beating the Japanese 600-class at a game they had dominated for a long time.

And while the Daytona 675R is “the one to get” according to the track day pundits, the base-spec Triumph 675 is every bit a weapon — particularly as you can always upgrade the suspension and add a quickshifter to get this bike every bit as quick as its R-spec sibling.

The Triumph Daytona 675 built between 2013-2017 has the same engine capacity of 675 cc as its predecessors, but with a different engine configuration. As manufacturers are wont to do to increase power, Triumph increased the bore by 2mm and dropped the stroke by a commensurate amount, letting the new 675 engine rev higher than ever — the rev limiter cut-off is 14400 rpm, over 1000 rpm over the original 675’s block.

The new 2013 Triumph Daytona 675’s engine makes 95 kW / 128 bhp at 12500 rpm, with peak torque of 75 Nm (55 ft-lb) coming on at 11900 rpm. It is only a few horsepower higher, but there’s actually torque added all through the curve.

The Triumph Daytona 675 is unique among middleweight sportbikes for making a lot of low-end torque. Even though it peaks high, it makes over 80 % of its torque at 3500 rpm. It’s part of what makes riding the Daytona 675 so special.

Of course, that torque is best put to use on the track, to power out of corners. For street riding, the Daytona 675 is just what you’d expect — a little tiring at times, especially if your back or wrists are sensitive to the riding position.

Unlike its R-spec sibling, the Daytona 675 lacks the Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes that make the 675R more track-ready. But the Daytona 675 is no slouch. Many owners say that it’s the perfect bike for everyday riding and the occasional track day.

Serious racers would probably opt for the R, but then serious racers would upgrade the suspension, brakes, and tyres beyond the stock spec, anyway.

The service schedule for the Daytona 675 is much like many other liquid-cooled Triumph sport bikes. You change the oil and filter every 6000 miles / 10000 km, as well as doing a number of other checks. Then every second service, check the valve clearances and change the spark plugs. Aside from that, keep everything lubricated and the fluids fresh and you’re golden.
