Thanks! I really try my best!
Let's update this thread!
Not me, not my XT, but it's worth a look...
That's a good one.
Getting closer... front ends all but done...
just got to put the Ohlins shock in... But waiting on
swing arm & linkage bearings so I can do it all at once...
front end is a CR250 revalved & sprung , stoke has been shortened
from 300mm to 240mm after all the bike only has 230mm of ground clearance..
still a work in progress...
Hello, this is my XT660R after a few modifications.
What you had to do to replace front fork? I'd like to do something like this with my XT660.
My new baby :)
this is mine on a trip with my wife.
PeteNZ - have you ridden the bike with the USD-fork yet? I installed a shortened WP48 in my 96er-DR. Wow. Stiffness, compliance, the ability to tune the damping either way - I wonder why only so few people head that direction ... In fact if you got a good deal and can sell your stockers at a reasonable price you´re sometimes even cheaper than adding intiminators or similar stuff and much better off on the ride.
Will you go higher in the rear also (with the Öhlins)?
yes have done a few rides including the DB1k... 1000km of back country
trails/tracks in 2 days..
you don't really realize how bad the XT forks are till yer go down the USD road..Have the Ohlins in... I'm not going to raise the bike... I have short leg syndrome..
I have only once fallen off it..but have put it down a few times as I couldn't get a footing when stoped on rough terrain..
So the engine protection pays for itself? I got "long-leg-syndrome" - exactly half of my 184 cm is legs, so I raised the rear by 30 mm, upholstered and widened my seat, dropped the peg-mounts. Did not encounter a hole when I stopped offroad yet, but I could very likely make similar experiences ...

This is me against the mud!
stuck in the sand !
good exercise lifting it out by your self
Good bit of kit you got there.
Those SW-Motech panniers and rear rack work a treat.
The big girls sure take a bit of muscling in the sand.
Wouldn't do it any other way.
