XT660R ADV hack build

Stage 1 half completed.. The rear section of the sub frame..
I'm going to build another leaner..The XR unit worked so well
I diddn't really concider a ridged/fixed unit..Its abillity to move
over bumbs with very little efect on the bike is a big plus also
no leading link is required as you are not steering the bike
but still leaning... Other than the two 3/4" rod ends as the main
pivits there will be a slideing limiting strut to restrict the bikes lean..

there will be a triangle frame welded off the spreader bar on the rear
going to the front engine mount plates..I'm hopeing being a triangle it
will transfur the ridgillity from the rear section to the front to reduce/stop
any side ways flex as the XT660s don't have a bottom cradle frame..
The rear frame bolts to the foot peg bolts on each side & to the main
stand mount...
Not figgered out this pic posting thing yet....
Woohoo.. cool banana's......got it

Sounds like it's gonna be a cool build.
You are gonna have to figure out the picture posting thing.
Lots of threads here on how to do it.
Use your Google search.
Good luck.

Another bit to the puzzle... swing arm tacked togeather..
had to use the arc welder as the argon bottle is empty
so couldn't tig it...
I'm going to tack all parts up to the final fit up that way it's
easyer to make changes..
The arm has a 3:1 ratio to the shock & will pivot on bronze bushes...
Main arm is built from 32mm OD x 3mm stainless with 16mm OD X
3mm braceing...
I hope the 3/4" axle is stong enough.. 3/4" berring were the biggest
that will fit the wheel... would have liked a 25mm or 1" axle but would
need to fined a new 17" wheel ....

Now back onto the bikes sub frame...
I have had a bit of time to think about it some more..
being a leaning car..it only held on by 2 bolts..
so the sub-frame will have the bash plate bolted to it
as well it will have engine bars as a intergrated part..
that will give me the option to remove the car and use
the bike as normal..On my XR250 leaning car it takes
about 30mins to remove or replace the car...

Sub frame completed

Got the sub frame out of the way....
now I can bet it on start on the car
that now I have some fixed point to
measure from...
I hopeing the frame will add some ridgility
to the bike as theres no bottom cradle
on the XT660 frame..
There will be a bash plate bolted to it , along
with engine bars..but they can wait at the moment..
Want to get started on the fun bit...

You keep up this quality work and you will become the 'go to man' for off road leaner's on ADV

Can't wait to see the finished outfit .

Have fun .

For the car my thinking /design is a little diffrent...
As the line pic shows... easyer to draw quick
pic than try and decribe it in text..
Seat/rear guard will be from a WR.. to try in keeping
with the colour/style of the XT...
Swing arm/linkage/shock are from a Chinese Shineray 200
as I already have them laying around...


So this is where my thinking is heading.... (at the moment)

I was following your wheel track thread . From looking at it from a leaner view I couldn't see how the narrow track would adversely impact the handling . Having never built/ridden a leaner I kept my opinion to myself .

Cool to see you are trying a variation on your other one . I would prefer the first one for personal use ... but that's just me


Have fun .

Apart from getting the right length bolts the sub frame
is on... I got a bit of weld pull in the final welding off
the bike... I thought that was a possability so I made it
to have 15mm spacers in the front mount..so now the spacers
will be 5mm longer on one side to get it on with out any stress..
now I can start on the car....

I was thinking on-road leaners would get some good ideas as well. Liked the other leaner build you have done. This is gonna be a good one...

I like the looks of that subframe you built, I never thought of a leaner when I started to look at hacks but for off road it seems that it may be better than a solid mounted rig. Is there any advantage or disadvantage for having a hack on the left or right side of a bike for off road other than just being built for what country you ride in if on the left or right side of the road.

I see both of your builds have the hack on the left side so Im assuming that "NZ"stands for New Zealand and that is where you live?
