The MT09 works really nice but it is very wide.

Nice bike
Agreed. Using the triple will just produce a Tiger clone and both will be competing for the same spot in the market. Using the 700 will make a smaller, lighter bike, with its own spot in the market and no competition.

Probably will be cheaper too.

Yes, but this triple works sooooooo nice... serious competition for the 1200.

Hi Jaume,

I''m 35,000km into a trip round the Americas on my XT660Z. I'm coming back to UK for a visit in the summer and am considering treating myself to some stuff to upgrade the bike. I have Touratech/hyperpro progressive springs fitted and Ohlins on the back and it has been great in the dirt, but.....

From you experiences, what modifications would make the biggest impact?

I have an OTR Titanium pipe on, OTR airfilter and Power Commander, and the usual protection. I was wondering how much the bike's handling was improved by the new forks and front set up. The OTR WP set up isn't cheap, but I could do what you did and look for YZ forks with the OTR Triple Clamp, or just sell some stuff to buy the WPs!!

Any other throughts? Better rims perhaps?

Thanks man,

Paul

Hi!
I'm really jelous about your trip

IMHO the best modifications are the exhaust, filter and PC. This makes a big improvement to the bike response... but you already have this.

Next is the front suspension but as you say is not cheap. Even if you find some YZ forks, you need to have a front rim, hub, spokes, brake disk, caliper, triple clamp... not easy!
If you have the money probably the easiest way is to go to OTR, they have the complete set and you wont have any troubles.

With this new front set up the handling in off road improves a lot. You can feel how the suspension work hard but the control of the bike is easy. Riding its a pleasure, I enjoy it a lot!.

If you change the fork probably the best thing is to keep the complete OEM wheel and have a better rim. You can sell the OEM wheel or keep it to the day you want to sell the bike.

I have a new 18" rear wheel but I didn't test it yet. I'm waiting to the disc and sprokett to fix it. I will tell you my feelings when I can ride with it.

Cheers!

Though it is probably worse for you, the wait to see this setup mounted is killing me. And then there is the first ride report.

Yes.. It's been too long... But I'm waiting for a nice disc so I hope the wait is worth it.

Cheers!!
