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

You should be able to do some sweet jumps with that lot bolted in

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
Clint

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..

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..

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.

LOL.. I didn't get the WR in the end.... Thought about it desided the motor was a bit to short lived for what I wanted to use it for...
