That's what I think Robson. From all the reports I have read the 660 should be getting at least double that, even if tuned for max. power.

You're right LukasM!
My XT is going to pass from 97 MKm and my worst average was 14 km/l, traveling against a very strong wind on a Chile trip.

New XT660R owner here.. I really had a hard time picking a bike in this class, the Yamaha costs considerably more than the Kwak or Zuk, but I think it'll be worth it. I've only test ridden one, I pick mine up this week. I really think a good second choice would have been the Husky TE610, but I can't risk maintenance issues while living in Australia. That brings me to my last point, half the attraction of the XTR for me is the fact that's not available in the US. ;)

Hello guys!
Has someone on a big trip using a XTR?
Mine is going to pass from 98 MKm, there's someone with this mileage?

I did of course make a "slight" calculating error ... but run aprox 16,6 km/l as is. That gives around 430 km/tank (26 liters).

Strange system btw. The fiber-tank i divided, and thus internally shifts fuel from the lower tank up to the top part of the tank. A tiny "under-pressure-pump" makes this happen.

I see if i can post a couple of pics ...

Beste regards

26 liters on the tank give a great mileage...

I will be making some fuel comparisons with my TDM when I collect my XT.
I'm very curiouse to see how much they are different. Very little I suspect.
TDM9er turnes up 26.37km/1ltr over and over.
Rearviewmirror are you out on your new bike yet. Your post in the Aussforum got a few responses. You seemed a little unsure of your purchase. I think you did good .The ride is the important part not always the farkles.
