I agree whole heartedly. It fits the niche between the road oriented F650 and the slow, heavy road oriented KLR.

Hello all XT660 and Yamaha fans. I hope you'll join me in supporting a campaign to let Yamaha USA they should import the XT660 model to our country.

I'm a big XT660 supporter and hope if you are a fan as well, you'll send an email or phone call to Yamaha USA. (If you're not a supporter, please don't post-whore and start bashing). If you have something positive to contribute it's welcomed, specifically an email address!

Great bike !

This is my XT660R 2007. Very good with few modifications, bigger fuel tank, new 2-1 exhaust system, customiced seat and more. Very good bike that I rode around the world last summer. No problems at all !

Here's my XT660R fully loaded.
Did a little Germany trip few weeks ago, 3500km.
Had no problems whatsoever, and thanks to Airhawk which saved my butt




The bike was so heavy with me (115kg) and the stuff on it (tents, sleeping bags, food, etc etc., it got great wheelies because of that :) Also the fuel mileage was affected a bit. Still, it is a great bike to ride.

Btw, don't buy the Yamaha original touring screen. It sucks, a lot of buffeting, it would be better to use original small screen or www.off-the-road.de touring screen.

After a good 10 minutes on hold i gave up. Ill try again though. Threads like this one really fuel my desire for one.

Nice to see the thread appear again. Here are a couple of recent ones of mine. I have fitted a new TT Bashplate, a higher screen, some handguards, and a TT rack on the back.





Nice pictures Piipz - hope you had a good trip, I have done many trips around germany. How did the KTM get on? I have been looking at a 2000 model similar to the other one in your picture as a second bike.
