This is what the XT660R should looked from the beginning before it came out!

*Yamaha XT660R -07
*WP front fork 48mm with KTM front brake
*Öhlins in the back
*2-1 exhaust OTR
*Adv spec bash plate
*EXCEL rims front/bak, 18" in back
*Modded backlight
* MM radiator plate
*PC5 with foamfilter and o2 optimizer
*XTX sidepanels
*The bike is raised about 35-40mm almost higher then a KTM690 2012
*Steel mounted brakehose front/back
*Acerbis Rally3 hand guards "are not mounted on this picture"

No problem to chase a KTM690

What a great thread. I've always wondered why Americans buy the KLR. Now I know it's because they can't buy the XTR. I don't have one yet but I really want one to supplement my B-King. Then I'll probably have the two most reliable bikes in the world. I plan on fitting Renthals and Barbusters, a bashplate and a metal top box of around 30 litres. Metal Mule are so expensive I may go for a Touratech one. I'd like the old type that fix on from the inside of the box. I'm not sure I can get a new one without the panniers, which I definitely don't want. A Woolfman Enduro tank bag will complete things. XTRs are not so cheap in Portugal, where I live (around 6,700 euros) and bike shops don't discount here. I'd buy second hand but few people in Portugal maintain bikes properly as they can't really afford to run them in the first place.
I intend to do southeast Asia on it but the route is troublesome with all the stuff happening in the Middle East. It is possible to fly a bike over on Air Malasia in the hold. For example, I read about a couple on a V-Strom 650 who flew back from KL to Amsterdam and the cost wasn't that prohibitive.

Gilimoto tank preference, Blue or Black

For those that have the Gilimoto tank, is there a colour that would be favoured over the other, Blue or Black?
Only thing I can come up with is the Blue would be easier to see into.
Help please.

Thanks
Robo





My colour scheme would take either

If you're in my area on a ride and need a place to crash, a hot meal, or some beer let me know.

my used XT 660R

Hi All

Just bought a 2004 XT660R with 7k on the clock. Has a nice 180 mile drive home, just as reliable as a new one!
