THAt indeed is a good excuse to work on those sidepanels! :)
They do their job very well in my opinion.

If you consider crashbars, I recommend the Hepco & Becker ones.
They protect your gear lever and rear break lever as well. I know out of experience that they break or bend easily with a fall. And that the crashbars work as well.


The only problem you might get is shifting gears is a bit difficult, because they get quite close to the lever...

I want to avoid to add weight so I prefer not to use crash bars and yesterday I realized those side pannels are great.

Very good news!

The 660 project is entering a new dimension. Off the Road (OTR), the German manufacturer / distributor of accessories for motorcycle is going to help me improve a lot the 660.

OTR has a lot of experience in the XT660Z. They have also done preparations to participate in races. Thanks to them, the bike’s development will be much more effective and fast, and I can learn from their experience to avoid mistakes.

Their help allows me to go a lot further in the mods than I could have ever dreamed.

I love how easy it’s been to reach a deal with them; despite the distance and language they were immediately enthusiastic about the project and they have offered their advice at any time.

I think the Yamaha-Ausió -OTR combination will be the bomb!

Here you have a picture of the changes I’m expecting to do on the bike… but time will tell if we have to do something more to it…

I’m so happy!

See the list modifications: http://traildreamer.com/en/una-gran-noticia/

Jaume, preciosa moto la XT660Z Ténéré, al ver la modificación que hiciste de la ST me imagino como quedará de bueno el diseño de estos adhesivos. ¿cuándo este listo el diseño van a estar disponibles para comprarlos o van a ser únicos?.

Saludos desde Arica, Chile.

Hola!
La idea es que una vez estén listos se puedan comercializar.
Ya os iré informando.

Saludos!!

Por cierto, estos días tengo en casa a un compatriota tuyo de Viña del Mar pasando sus vacaciones. Me ha traído un libro de Chile con unos paisajes increíbles...

Si, desde patagonia y selva en sur, mediterráneo en el centro a desierto tipo Marruecos en el norte.

Qué has pensado sobre equipaje?, maletas laterales de aluminio, alforjas de otro material, bolso tipo alforja algo como lo que tienes en las fotos de Marruecos en la S10?

Yo estaba seguro de unas maletas laterales de aluminio anodizado ZEGA Pro de Touratech, pero he leído en algunos foros que para viajes principalmente off-road son mejor opción las alforjas de otro material.

Saludos!

>>><<<

Yes, from Patagonia & jungle in the south, mediterranean landscape in the center, to Morocco style desert in the northern regions.

What have you thought about luggage?, Aluminum side cases, other material saddlebags, something like what you have in your S10 Morocco photos?

I was sure to go for anodized aluminum panniers (Touratech Zega Pro), but I read in some forums that saddlebags of other material is the best choice for mainly off-road trips.

Cheers mate!

I know... incredible country

I have the Giant loop Great Bassin saddle bag. It's a great option for off road but too small for a very long trip and too exposed to burglars (robos).
So, I would like to have some aluminium side cases. I like the Zega but found them too expensive. I don't know wich ones yet.

OTR eqipment

It's great that you have assistance from OTR. Will you use any of their engine tuning upgrades.

I now have a KTM but was thinking of a possible 660 with the OTR engine upgrade for an ADV bike.

Might be problematic but it would completely transform the motorcycle.
