Yamaha xt660z forks swap, YZ USD - update

The new forks are already fit on my Tenere. I using Yz 450 2006 forks, (46mm top, 49mm bottom) triple clamp was from was from WR 450 2005. The size was 44mm / 48mm and I machined it 1mm top and 0.5mm bottom to be able to put the forks in. I using the original Yamaha steering stem. Bolt it without problem, only on the top clamp i have to put 1mm spacer between the stem and the clamp(the original stem was top 25mm, the new is top 23mm. The front wheel is from YZ 450.I also changed the handle bars with 28mm. What is left is oversize brake disk 270mm. I did today a proper test.
I need to change the springs with stiffer, It's ok the way it is now but I want to make a proper sag .I already ordered 0.52 this is the stiffest I can get. The rear shock is so soft(compare to the front) and lift it with new bones (35 mm) The YZ front forks are 40 mm longer than the stock. I should be ok with the new bones.

Hi guys, first post. I live in Texas and of course we don't have the XT660 Tenere in the states. But just over the boarder in Mexico they sell them. Dose anyone have any experience bringing one in? Buying it and getting it into the us is no problem. i assume getting it registered and insured is were I'm sure ill run into some trouble. Any ideas?

Hi there. The Panniers are awesome. I've thrown it down the road a couple of times and they held up to it well. They are super tough. I've done a lot of off road and they put up with everything I throw at them. I got the whole set up from http://www.motorbikesandparts.co.uk/...rs-p-9219.html . Done nearly 50,000 miles with them on the whole way. It was a SW Motech tail plate for the top box but I have switched to a bag for the back now.

Thanks a lot for your reply. I have some further questions: on which pannier rack did you mount the Gobi panniers? H&B or another brand? Finally, did you use the "Fuse set for long expeditions" or just the standard attachment?

I am in Kent. So if you fancy some trail riding with our Teneres, get in touch.

Cheers

Sam

I used the H&B quick release racks. I've never heard of the 'Fuse set' so mine must be standard. I got them early 2010 so maybe that set wasn't around then. Would love to do a ride out but my bike is still in S Dakota. Shall be heading back to continue touring soon.
