Nice! Is that the H&B luggage rack you've got there?

Like the gastanks. Did you need to do mods to make them fit?

Yep all H&B rack and pannier frames and H&B engine bars.

I made my own mounting plate for the Roto-Pax to mount to the pannier frames out of 3mm alum with 20mm by 3mm ss clamps. Yep its a bit over built but hey it works.

I now have a Gilli-Moto 22.5ltr fuel tank (pic of it soon) so the Roto-pax are on my TT600R now.

Bit of a up date..
Got out for another ride , 300km
I sorted the foot peg vibration..
LOL.. changed my boots ..
rubber soles instead of a plastic stuff..
vibration gone..
Its got a real sweet spot at 90,95kph
very smooth.. which works out quite
well as a lot of our roads are very winedy..
On gravel its a bit tail happy.. but the
Shrinko 705 on the rear didn't help..

I have a Puig screen coming .. should remove
the wind preasure at road speeds...
http://www.motorcycle-exhausts.co.uk...uct--9514.html

On the 2 rides I have done so far..
its getting 23.5km per letre..
which is like 350km per tank..

Given the competition between Yamaha & Honda,it amazes me why Honda
have given up.They got nothing to compete with these bikes or the 660 Tenere
and that overweight CrossTourer or whatever it's called is not a patch on the
Super Tenere(what were they thinking put a V4 engine in it,would like to see
a small Japanese engineer ride it up a greasy path!).It is said that the TT600RE
is a better bike though due to having a carb,the F.I. is poorly set up in the XT660's.

Really ! thats news to me, sure the TT600R is better in the rough stuff but a better bike ? don't think so.

The XT660 has a heap more go, is soo much more comfortable and is a lot better on fuel plus a lot more.

Yes I own both a TT600R and a XT660R.

I am lucky and have different uses for each nowadays but the TTR is a pain in the ass literally for any distance work.

If I had to chose one bike it would be the XT660R hands down.

I dont know for sure on the X or R, but the EFI on my Z Tenere is flawless: good gas/throttle response, no surgin' and very good fuel economy, is it wet, cold or hot weather. Just to let you know, for the record.

Mine is an 09 XTR and is fine but I have done a few things to it. I think the trick is to keep the rev's up sometimes, the FI is touchy and needs a smooth hand as well.

Have a look at XT660.com your answers lay there.

Cheers

Its a 08, but I think it has a different EFI compared to the X and R.

South of Sweden calling!

I drive a XT 660 X SM which Im now converting into a offroad tourer. In February Im going to Norway for a wintherevent together with other nutcases so Im preparing my bike and gear as we speak. www.krystallrally.no

Later on in the autumn of 2012 Im going to ride a trip to Cape town in South Africa with the SuperMoped so well just see about that wont we?

Some preparations is under way such as OTR www.off-the-road.de sidecarriers with Dewalt DS 400 toolboxes as panniers loading a succesful 55 liters each. On winther one wants to bring proper clothing which takes a lot of space and for the Africa tour Ill stuff in a 23 liter boat fueltank in each pannier, one for the extra fuel and one for water.

I have bought a fueltank belonging to the Tener 2009 which Im gonna fit to the bike, saddle and panels has to be rebuild amongst other things. Why not buy a XT 660 Z instead you say? Well theres no sport in that is there?
My goal is to create a unique bike in which I am the only one having!
Topfairing of the bike sitting on top off the fueltank is probably gonna be something from a sports 125 cc although I havent decided which yet. Point is also that it must be replacable in the event of a crash.


The bike as it looks today except for tyres.
