Thanks for clarifying the part for me. I found at least another four guys had the same problem with the bearing. I really want to replace it myself but, looks quite a job when I consulted the manual, what do you reckon?

I've got an older style single Akro can that I was going to fit, but I also have access to another standard Tenere muffler to play with. Thoughts?

Both of them are now out on the line drying. (It's a good drying day...sunny and windy)

There is no info in the owners manual as it only mentions the Euro paper element type....My question is, do you oil both foams or just the inner, removable foam.??

The inner would be easy enough to oil and massage the filter oil through. The outer foam however is moulded in with the cage. I could tip some oil on it but it would be a bugger to massage through evenly.

What method are you guys using..??
Id be interesting in hearing this also, Im only used to cleaning Enduro bike filters without the cage. Any tips would be helpful, cheers Ian

I'm not a fan of the aerosol spray can filter oil but I found it the easiest way to get an even coating on the outer caged filter... It contains a lot of solvent so it seems best to spray a bit around, let the solvent evaporate off, then give it another spray... (if you try spraying a shit load into the filter in 1 go, 1/2 of it ends up running out)

I have two types of foam air filter. One I was given which is a thinker single insert in the wire cage that peels out to be cleaned. The other is the one that was in the bike that has two filters in it, a pre-filter and the other filter in the cage.
I can take all of the out of the cage to be cleaned which I do with kerosene (a dirt bike friend told me this trick) then use Bel Ray foam filter oil in a ziplock bag.

cleaned my air filter today. do you reckon you can put too much foam oil on the one fixed in the cage. bloody hard to judge. i let it sit in the sun for a while and a bit drained off.

Hi all. Travelling to Tasmania later this year in October. Riding from Sydney going for 2 weeks. I plan on camping most the night.

Questions are.
I have never done any long distance/multi day riding other than weekend trips.
What upgrades would you do to the bike to make it fit for the trip.
I have small normal upgrades. Like bash plate, crash bars, luggage plate, bark buster and hid globe on low beam.

Most of the riding will be road so I'm going to switch back to a road bias tyre.
Thanks.

Cush drive rubbers replacement

The other wheel bearings/seals are:
Wheels x4

Seal x3:
OIL SEAL (23X) (23x40x7)
Yam#93106-23002
Replaced by:
Yam#9310220281

I had to order bearings for a couple of other bikes also, and didn't have time to go to a local bearing place, so I found an Aussie shop on ebay and got a good deal on combined shipping: (prices are much the same as local bearing shops in Tassie, mainland prices are likely to be cheaper)

Cush bearing: x1
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/360285079299

Other wheel bearings: x4
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/360474553025

My cush bearing crapped out at about 12,000km, due to the bearing wobbling the seal was pretty shagged also:

Cush seal:

Wise to carry a spare cush bearing on long trips ;)
:)
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 still uses the Standard Yamaha Seal

Might be worth considering things like:
a taller screen
Heated grips
A throttle lock or cramp buster

All depends on what you want to spend. For instance I did some touring with out panniers and since fitting them the bike feels much easier to handle in the loose stuff as the weights lower down. But racks and bags or boxes aren't cheap.
Guess the dilemma is spend the money on the bike or the trip. Don't bother with upgrades and stay in pubs and cheap motels???

If you haven't done any other work to the cush drive area then I'd be packing it with tube as in the pictures above....not too tight so as to lose the intention of cush rubbers, but enough to hold it all together reasonably firmly. Made a world of difference to mine.

If you're going to load up the back and not be off road, maybe some compensation work on the rear shock/spring due to the extra weight. The front is pretty ordinary in stock form, maybe some work there too?

Tassie has some magnificent dirt roads, why not do something like Mitas E07 50/50 tyres both ends and give yourself the option?? They are great in both areas with longevity very good too.

Heated grips?? Once you've had them you'll never go without.

Enjoy your trip, have only done Tassie in 4WD and would love to it on a bike one day.....

Thanks for the info everyone.

I'm going with a mate who has a road bike so that's why there won't be much off-road exploring.
I have done the rubber tube packing to the rear end after I notice some movement in it.

-Where can you get taller screens from and what do you recommend. I don't want something that shatters like glass if I hit something.
-what panniers/bags do you recommend, I like the Barrett exhaust racks with wolfman packs.
-do the oxford heated grips fit with the bark busters and who is best to get them off?

I plan on giving my bike a proper service before the trip all fluids, and wheel bearings.

Pete at Screens for Bikes made mine, it's awsome. I have the thick polycarbonate smoke unit. Makes the bike look a lot better too.

I'd also suggest investing in a Airhawk II and 20mm Bar Risers.
I also have the FAMSA italian tank bag. It's designed for the bike and works at treat. So far my long distance setup suits me
