XT660R suspension
 
Bloody finally got the forks back from DAS ,only took 4 months to have them
re-valved , sprung , shortened & travel reduced , Couldn't see a lot of point haveing
forks with 300mm of travel on a bike with 250mm of ground clearance...
CR250 forks / Ohlins shock , hopefully will make it a diffrent bike..
replaced the CR disc with a 320mm .. didn't think the little CR one would
pull up a 170kg XT to well.. hopeing it might stop...
Now just need to find a head light for the screen.. Any ideas on LED lights
that will pass WOF ?

A Ohlins S46DR1 shock out of Germany was only $692.35 NZ on my door step..
quoted $1300 here for the same shock..

That looks sharp on the XR, it'll be interesting to see how it looks fitted to the XT

I had a bit of a look around recently when I upgraded the 640 light & didn't see anything Hi/Lo in LED. I'd be inclined to get the cheapest thing that fits in the hole with a std H4 then get a badass LED spot like this alongside it to augment high beam.

Cheers

I did find one on e-bay... had 3 LEDs , one for low / all 3 for high...
But its a 7" round replacement unit..
If they made a square unit it would be perfect..

Looking forward to seeing it fly Pete:clap

Well I need something to ride while the XT is in bits....

06 TTR250.... quite a trick wee bike for a budget Yamaha.
Rear shock has spring pre-load / rebound & compression damping....
Forks have air valves & adjustable pre-load... 6 speed box...
Elec & kick start...275mm/11" wheel travel...Weight 130kgs fully wet...
Came with a Yamaha GYTR pipe... Has a nice new set of
Michelin AC10's on it now....

It looks as if it uses the same friction plates as the WR250F... So it
will get a Rekluse EXP...

PS.... Whats the best way to carry a step ladder on a bike..:rofl

Hey Pete since moving to Christchurch you seem to have developed an affliction for buying blue Yamahas - XT660R, WR250F, TT250R. Has Gerry Brownlee appointed you saviour of the Chch motorcycle industry or is it your midlife crisis? Whatever you must be having fun. :rofl
