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:

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 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.

Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 Service Intervals

Overall, the Daytona Moto2 765 has 6000 mile / 10000 km or annual service intervals (the earlier of the distance or time interval). At every service, change the oil and filter, and do a list of checks.

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

Regularly service the chain — checking it for wear and checking and adjusting it for slack.

You also need to regularly attend to the fluids — brake fluid and coolant.

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.

PartTriumph Daytona Moto2 765 spec
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 oil 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 filterYou can use the same high-performance DNA air filter as in the Street Triple, a DNA P-TR7S20-0R, equivalent to OEM part T2200957.
CoolantTriumph 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 padsFront: EBC part FA604/4HH for the calipers on the Daytona 765 Moto2’s Brembo Stylema brakes.
Rear: EBC part FA213HH
Brake fluidUse Castrol DOT 4 or an alternative.
Chain maintenanceUse a high-end chain lube like Motul chain paste.
General greaseUse Lithium soap-based grease for external parts and bearings.

Maintenance schedule for the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765

This is the maintenance schedule for the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765. We have re-formatted it slightly to make it easier to understand what’s due when, and for display on a web page.


  • Some items are for [T]riumph dealers only.
  • The schedule has many items it recommends you check every day. Do these with the annual/regular services as well.
  • The below maintenance schedule is broken up into daily/pre-ride checks, chain maintenance, and scheduled service.

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.).

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

Engine and oil cooler – check for leaks
Fuel system – check for leaks, chafing etc.
Cooling system – check for leaks
Coolant level – check/adjust
Clutch cable – check/adjust
Steering – check for free operation
Forks – check for leaks/smooth operation
Brake fluid levels – check

Chain maintenance

Below is the maintenance for regular usage of the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765.

Naturally, if you’re using your Daytona Moto2 more aggressively, you’ll follow a more rigorous schedule.

Chain maintenance itemEvery
Drive chain – lubricate (Motul chain paste)200 miles (300 kms)
(or after riding in wet or cleaning bike)
Drive chain – check wear (see below)500 miles (800 kms)
Chain maintenance — Triumph Daytona Moto2 765

To check wear, hang a 10-20 kg (22-44 lb weight) off the chain. Measure the length of 20 links (from 1 counting to 21). If the length of 20 links exceeds 319 mm (12.6 inches), replace the chain as well as both sprockets as a set.

You also need to check for chain tension and adjust it as necessary.

Triumph Daytona 765 Moto2 Chain Slack Adjustment

To measure the drive chain slack on the Daytona Moto2, follow the following steps. You need torque wrenches and a ruler.

  1. Put the motorcycle on a level surface with the gear in neutral. Put it on its side stand.
  2. Rotate the wheel by moving the bike around and find the tightest point of the chain.
  3. Get a ruler. Use a finger (with gloves, as optional), 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 Moto2 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 20 Nm / 15 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 — re-adjust it if necessary.

Full maintenance schedule

Below is the full maintenance schedule for the Daytona Moto2 765 for everyday use (e.g. if you commute on your Daytona Moto2 765). Do these items as well as the items in listed as daily/pre-ride checks.

Note that the break-in schedule is omitted as this bike was limited release and is no longer sold new. If you have one that has been sitting and isn’t broken in, consult your local Triumph shop for a good break-in regimen.

About the Triumph Daytona Moto2 765

Triumph Daytona Moto2 765 track riding action

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.
