Mate, I got the tape from the local Autobarn I think. It came in a kit with metal cable ties for holding it in place. There were different widths, I went for the narrow one for ease of fitment. The tape's been on for over a year, still seems pretty sound...

Thumb Thanks John RE: Racks

John171,

Thanks for the detailed reply. I appreciate it. I've got a few woodwork projects on at the moment, but as soon as I get the chance I'll be fabricating some of these to match the B&B rack.

Will take photos to log the build.

Thanks again, good to see a good old Case/IH in the background!

Hey WoopWoop, doh....
BoneMan, thanks for that.
If anyone lives near B&B Offroad @ 23 Martin Drive, Delacombe Vic 3356 that could supply an XT660R for a couple of days, they will make a combo bashplate and crash bar setup just like the XT660Z

XT660R Pannier Racks

Been checking out pannier racks and came across Nomad from Poland. Works out at about $300 aus including postage. Looks the goods, especially like the way they've built a bend/ break bar, which is bolted to each side and the number plate. Grab handles look like they'd get in the way though, especially with a B&B rear rack. Anyone else seen these or got experience with others?




Similar sort of set up to the Metal Mule, which are a little hard to justify at $500

Hey John,

Does your B&B rear rack extend back far enough to provide some protection for the rear tail light in the event of a flip?

Edit, just found some pictures of the B&B rack on ebay, looks like it would come close to saving it

Tail lights

Robo,

Unfortunatly I don't think any rack would be able to protect that " BABBOON ARSE " (quote from another web site) of a tail light. It's not just the tail light that is the problem its the whole lot ,the hard long mud guard the blinkers the whole unit. Because it sticks out so far and is so rigid I don't think anything could protect it. That's why I fitted a smaller tail light, flexible mud flap, and moved the blinkers. From experience of flipping far lighter bikes than this one no matter what you do it's no going to be pretty if things go wrong.

Cheers.
John

My mates call the tail light assembly on my XT "ET" because of the shape of his head. I've tried modifying the existing tail assembly with a hacksaw, it's better, but today I bit the bullet & ordered this from OTR. It should sit in nicely under the B&B rack...



Will let you know how it goes...

Hey Bone,

I saw that too and did like the look. Unfortunately I can't put anything like that on until I get mine passed the QLD Transport inspection to get it off the repairable write off register, so everything has to be bog stock. It's killing me, I've got all these farkles to go on and they just have to sit and look pretty for the time being. However I have put the Kev Mod and O2 Cintroller on which i should be able to get away with.

Getting close to getting a road worthy now












Here's a shots showing off the OTR front guard






Renthal fat bars with 20mm risers




And here's a tip for the punters, Pivot Pegz for the Yamaha TTR250 also fit the XT660R, so if you want to get them cheap, get them from the US.

Hey ckjackson1,

Course you can join, more the merrier. Mighty fine looking steed you got there. Brings back memories riding with my mate Phil. Only he broke his and had to have a whole frame built and of course he chucked in the TDM motor and with the Akro pipe, it was sweet......
