Keep an eye on BIL's XT660 rear subframe, they break when too much load is placed too far back, like on BILs bike. A few years ago me & my buddies had four XT660s and three of them broke, one of them was brand new and only needed a few miles off road with a 10 kg bag to break.
It was an easy fix, cut the broken subframe & insert a 10 cm steel tube inside the subframe's tube, then weld it.
Thanks Goti, BIL had 12kg on the back, I'll have to check the subframe and maybe look at some strengthening... He'll probably put a hard case on there soon so it may end up with a bit more weight up there...

Thanks for your comments :)
