What kind of luggage rack is that? I've looking for something like that but its next to impossible to find anything 660 related over here.

Whorepedo - apologies for the delay in responding, I'm in Morocco at the moment. However, Tod below nailed it.

The Givi pannier racks are cheap and fairly light at 3kg and I wouldn't want to hang anything serious from them. I use them simply to hold soft luggage away from the bike and for this purpose, they are OK, if not a bit too far from the bike making it unnecessarily wide. I have crash tested them a couple of times at low speed or in sand with no ill effects.

The rear luggage rack is Metal Mule and is doing it's job. I carried tyres (tires) from UK to Morocco (1,500k over 4 days) with a chunk of weight on the rack and it did the job OK.

yet another peice of the jigsaw puzzle arrived the other day..
from OTR in Germany...
Ohlins S46DR1 sprung for a 70kg rider...
NOW if that guy would get my USD forks finished...



EDIT...........................

Bloody finally got the forks back.... now I can start the suspension rebuild..
forks have been re-valved , sprung , travel reduced.. I couldn't see much point in
forks with 300mm of travel on a bike with 250mm of ground clearance..
let the fun begin...

The more I ride my XT660X the more I love her!

BUT I'm also convinced that when Yamaha engineers were desigining these bikes, they came up with the XT660X. Then they went to present the new bike and in a meeting they realized "this bike was supposed to be a dual sport", so they went back to the drawing board and 10 minutes later they came up with the XT660R.

The XT660X is brilliant for what it is, but the XT660R really needs lots of mods and then it ends up being better than the Tenere

I wish it was possable to get a few kgs off the bike...
but a lot of the XT's weight is in the motor..which is
why they are pretty bullet proof..
I have looked at cutting the rear sub frame off & building a
alloy one .. Theres a lot of heavy looking steel in the
XT sub frame.. that would also give the option to lower the seat..

Cush Drive Rubber Mod Fixed Finally !

Like all of us that have the XT660`s , the cush drive rubbers wear is a pain.
I found an article some time ago on the XT660.com thread.

The chain drive sprocket takes a tremendous load from the power of the engine , which causes the rear wheel bearing to wear excessively , even wearing the Chain Drive Hub Housing ,
The bearing will become loose in the housing at a later stage,

I fitted a double row bearing as apposed th the std single row bearing.
And with Polyurethane rubbers .I got 56 000km without changing the rubbers again.

You only have to machine the rear hub bearing housing 5mm deeper /
The Bearing I used is still the same dia. as the original.
And machine the inner spacer also 5mm shorter.
It stll uses the Standard Yamaha Seal





New bearing no. 62304

3205-2RS (25x52x20.6 mm)
Most bearing shops "should" have them.. .if not they're on ebay-au, about $22aus delivered from the UK...
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Double-Ro...-/200823601350

Some info from xt660.com:

A few Dutch riders (I'm one of them) have modified the sprocket-carrier such that it can take either a double Yamaha bearing or a single wide BMW wheel
bearing, with good results.

Here's a link to some photo's showing the double Yamaha bearing solution: http://www.motor-forum.nl/forum/list...46525#21446525


This is the BMW part no. 36 31 2 310 972 (used in some BMW front wheels)
inner size is 25 mm
outer size is 52 mm
with 20,6 mm (5,6 mm more then standard and with double row bearingballs)
You'd have to make a new socket!
€32,-

It's actually a INA 3205-2RS F0712 or SKF 3205-2RS

like http://www.amazon.com/32052RS-Bearin.../dp/B002HARCP2

output shaft seal dimensions

Anyone have the dimensions (OD, ID, width) handy for the seal hiding behind the front sprocket? I'm trying to bypass the Yamaha dealer...usd80 here in Brazil, and still not easy to get ahold of at that price.

Thanks
Josh
