A rental bike in Greece

Sweet ride, but a little cumbersome on single track and sometimes wonky fuel injection (on off syndrome)


Very good on tarmac even two up

Thanks.....

.......for those pictures.

Had a feeling that XT660R were not available in the USA, am sorry to read that.

Anyway, I have changed the thread a little, making it more inviting to other XT owners, so show us you pictures.

In the meantime, please enjoy the following link:

I've bought mine in order to spare the big XTZ, from constant abuse. :)
It was a cheap one, before i start with the enduro mods.
I like it so much that i use it sometimes for commuting(fooling around) though is pretty loud, and therefore illegal.

Here are some pics...

Transformation period...











Stage 1 (weight reduction) completed.

Stage 2...

Checkup & sorting the suspensions, gearing, riding position, etc.















Etc...

End of stage 2.

Hm, that's why they make foldable levers. :)

Some more...







After my S10, this one feels like an Mx bike :). Handles tight trails, suprisingly well.





Throw on it a pair of serious rubbers, and with a little bit of skill it will take you almost anywhere.

Tnx. Some pics are from Split area, an most from island of Brac.
I ordered a gear lever from xtz660. That one is foldable. It's no biggy anyway...a gentle hit with the boot and it's back in position.
As for the weight, i guess it all depands on what you're used to. With some diet, xtr is now almost half the super tenere's weight. For my gentle size (6'4''-240) that's super light. ;)
