Good to know that a moderately Upgrades 660 is working already well for you. What changes have you made to the forks? Just springs and oil?

Nothing yet in the forks, just put it it harder.
The "moderated upgrades" are going to finish soon with a new Yamaha YZ fork and new front wheel

That is good to hear, i think about buying a used xt660z or a older transalp as second bike and don't plan to invest a lot in it beyond gas and tires ;-)

My new 3.5/18 inch rear rim from Woody

It was a long wait but worth because the new rim manufactured specially in 3.5inch wide looks great. Assembled with the reinforced SS spokes and with a SS washer on the nipple head to distribute energy on a wider surface.



the complete wheel with a Metzeler Enduro Sahara 3 140/70/18 tube type tyre



back to my place with both tyres (front 21 and rear 18)



Cheers,
Roberto

Hi Roberto,

Serious question: What advantage does all this have over the stock system ?

Aside from SS spokes (which did not work for me when over-loaded).

I suspect tire choices. For serious off-road.

I agree. Lots more choices of 18" off roadie tires. The wheel is probably more stout than the stock one as well.
