Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Maintenance Schedule and Service Intervals
This is the maintenance schedule and service intervals for the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 (2020), Triumph’s super-exclusive track bike based on the 765 triple, similar to (but different from) that found in the Triumph Street Triple RS.
Here are all our Triumph Daytona maintenance schedules:
- Triumph Daytona 955i (1999-2006)
- Triumph Daytona 675 1st gen (2006-2008)
- Triumph Daytona 675 1st gen V2 (2009-2012) (Better brakes, different engine tuning for more torque/power)
- Triumph Daytona 675R 1st gen (2011-2012) (Öhlins front and rear, Brembo front calipers)
- Triumph Daytona 675 2nd gen (2013-2017) (Shorter stroke motor, revised style)
- Triumph Daytona 675R 2nd gen (2013-2017) (Brembo/Öhlins, shorter stroke motor)
- Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 (2020) (Limited edition)
The Daytona Moto2 765 is the long-awaited but short-lived replacement for the Triumph Daytona 675R, a bike that was well loved until the point of its retirement in 2017. But as you might guess, the new model gets a bigger motor — a 765cc inline three-cylinder engine that makes a peak of 128 bhp (96 kW) at 12250 rpm, making it the most powerful 765 cc engine in Triumph’s line-up.
The engine is also solid on torque, with Motorcycle.com reviewers saying it might even be better on the street. Torque peaks at 59 ft-lb (80 Nm) at 9750 rpm, but like many of Triumph’s triples, it’s got a lot of low-down poke.
The Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 is a very exclusive homologation special, with only 1530 released worldwide, with half of them (765) reaching North America, and 765 for the rest of the world — a paltry 25 reaching Australia.

What you need to service the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765
Most users of the Daytona Moto2 won’t be doing their own service, given its exclusivity. But if you want to, here are the manual’s recommended consumable items.
|Part||Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 spec|
|Engine oil||The 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 oil like Motul 7100 10W-40.|
|Oil filter||Replace the oil filter every time you change the oil. Use Triumph part number T1218001. You can also use Hiflofiltro part HF204RC.|
|Spark plugs||Use NGK spark plugs with code CR9EIA-9. Make sure they’re gapped to 0.9mm with an appropriate spark plug gap tool.|
|Air filter||You can use the same high-performance DNA air filter as in the Street Triple, a DNA P-TR7S20-0R, equivalent to OEM part T2200957.|
|Coolant||Triumph uses HD4X Hybrid Organic Acid Technology coolant with a 50% ethylene glycol mix. A common replacement for HD4X is Motorex Coolant M5.0 (See here for HD4X alternatives)|
|Brake pads||Front: EBC part FA604/4HH for the calipers on the Daytona 765 Moto2’s Brembo Stylema brakes.|
Rear: EBC part FA213HH
|Brake fluid||Use Castrol DOT 4 or an alternative.|
|Chain maintenance||Use a high-end chain lube like Motul chain paste.|
|General grease||Use Lithium soap-based grease for external parts and bearings.|

Daily maintenance items
Do these checks on your Daytona Moto2 765 before riding or daily. Many of these maintenance items are semi-obvious if you park your bike on a clean surface (so you can observe drips), and just as you ride away (e.g. does the kickstand stick, is the throttle play OK, etc.).

About the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765
If you were waiting for a replacement for the Triumph Daytona 675R… well, you got your wish, though not exactly.
The Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 is a high-spec track-first bike. It’s conceptually the descendant of the Daytona 675R, but it doesn’t make pretensions about being a road-oriented motorcycle.
Firstly, there’s the name. By mentioning Moto2 (which Triumph always carefully describes as Moto2TM, recognising the trademark), Triumph positions the Daytona Moto2 765 as a track-first bike. And indeed, that’s its heritage: the Moto2 765 is designed by the same team that designed the Moto2 engine in the factory bikes supplied by Triumph.
Secondly, there’s the ride gear. The Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 comes with the very best of track-oriented equipment, including Brembo Stylema brakes (the same as seen on the Ducati Panigale V4) and Öhlins suspension front and rear, with NIX30 front forks and a TTX36 rear shock.
The Brembo brakes are fed by standard steel-braided lines, and a Brembo 19/21 MCS master cylinder.
Tyres are also race-spec (while being street legal) as Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP.
The Daytona Moto2 765 does get an electronics upgrade, but it’s not the whole works as you might expect. It has ride by wire and a TFT display, with a multi-function joystick to control menu settings, similar to other modern Triumph motorcycles.
But while the Daytona Moto2 765 has ABS, traction control, and ride modes, it lacks the fancy electronics you might expect given the budget. There’s no IMU, and no cruise control, in case you were hoping (though it’s rare on a middleweight sportbike).
And while you can reduce the intervention of ABS through ride modes (including the “Rider” mode, which is customisable), you can’t ever switch it off. Traction control is just on or off.
Maintaining the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 is blissfully similar to maintaining any other 765 cc triple. There’s an oil change every 6000 miles or 10000 km, with a valve clearance inspection every second service. In fact, the maintenance schedule omits a few elements like checking the evaporative emissions filter, so things might even be a bit easier.
Needless to say, if you track/race your Daytona, expect to be changing the oil and fluids a lot more often.
For nearly all riders who don’t definitely want a sportbike with fairings and also don’t want to pay the high entry price for getting a semi-exclusive Moto2 765, the Triumph Street Triple RS remains the practical choice.
