Looks good on the tens never seen one on a r or x but always wondered if it would fit.

Just before you get all set up...

Welcome to the XT crew!

I have been remiss in not posting my setup - not that I am experienced but I have done a few mods.

My best? advice is to have a long think about your plans for mods especially in regard to a 2in1 system.

My thinking originally went something like this:

No to a DR650, an xt stock has more power better seat - no need to upgrade exhaust, no mucking around with temperamental carbs etc.

Got bark busters, B&B bash plate, T63s, SW Motech pegs, Kevs fuel mod. Forks resprung (linear heavier springs + RacheTech valves) and rear onto level 3-4 preload.

Well on a Caterpiller ride - exhausts too heavy, poor ground clearance, tyres not enough grip (bikes crashes very well considering). Decided it was cheaper to spend money on the XT than get a WR250R (I know very different but hey).

Bought 2 in 1 system (much less surging!). Saved bout 7-8 kgs. Fit a LiPo battery. Saved another 3 kg. Big differnece in handling. MT-21 on front for better grip.

Modded the B&B to fit pipes and was going to mod to gain extra clearance. Never did the last bit, so 3 months later wish I had of just bought the Metal Mule and now have.

You might have better more stable plans but changing to the 2in1 (one of the best mods) changes all options for bash plate and engine guards as far as I know.

Good luck!

Peter.

p.s. thought my black '09 was trick but the white definitely pips it.

As part of the deal I managed to convert theYamaha current "dollar per cc" deal into genuine accessories namely sump guard, hand guards and carry rack. Given a choice I would have gone with different brands of all the items but couldn't knock it back. And, for gravel road work I'm hoping that Yamaha sump guard should be sufficient.

First priority is crash bars. Checking out the options. Supamanaint has been helpful over on another forum. Thanks mate

Anyone know anything about the Touratech crash bars? I've looked on various sites but can't find a decent picture and Touratech Aust aren't real forthcoming so far. But from the sparse info I can find, they seem about the only ones that might offer protection for the tank and shrouds.

Thanks Petemb,

I seriously considered all the issues of weight, ground clearance etc, before I went ahead. I reckon for my intended use....ie as a back roads/ gravel tourer it will be less of an issue. As a matter of fact I'm still considering dropping it down a further 25mm with lowering links.

The more I think about the Gilimoto tank, the more interested I get. It would solve a few issues. It'll (obviously) solve any fuel range issues and even at around 500 bucks it's probably cheaper than replacing scratched shrouds etc.

Has anyone dealt with Gilimoto? How do you communicate with them?

What issues are involved with fitting it?

Woopwoop,

I use my bike for touring on dirt and road and that is how I set it up as a allroads tourer, seriously how much clearance do you need for that (not that much really).
Ok so my bike is a bit taller than standard as I have replaced front springs and rear shock but I am thinking of lowering it a little.
As for the tank, I will help you with fitting mounting etc if you decide to get one, you will have no problems dealing with Gilli-Moto.
You can contact Giovana at Gilli-Moto by email .....gillimoto@gillimoto.com.br.... and send Giovana my regards.

Cheers,

Shane.

PS. Your bike looks great in white

Good onya Pete. I'll watch with interest.

How long do they reckon it will take?

I'll also be interested to see what's involved in fitting it.

Hey woopwoop, so you took the plunge, I think youll like it.
You asked about the touratech crash bars, they are not worth having. I dropped my xt in deep soft sand and they bent enough to damage the fairing which may not otherwise have broken. Look for something with a cross bar or brace of some kind.
enjoy.

Fitting the Gilli-Moto tank is easy, I shall post some pic's up when I get home in
a few days if you would like.

Will also post up how to make your own fitting kit as well.

Thanks Mtrain, that pretty much confirms what I thought from the sketchy info available from Touratech.

That'd be great if you don't mind. ( I'm probably the world's most cautious purchaser )
