I don't think you can get the same strong frame that the 660 has without gaining a bit of weight. :-\  A few kilos can apparently be shedded by replacing the exhaust.

My 640 has done 70 000 km with not a problem (dont mention the motor) with the frame and i know of XT 660 R & Z frames breaking

 :thumleft: I've seen plenty of R frames break, but only know of Andys Z frame, which Yamaha sorted anyway.

Would be interesting to know where the differences in weight are between the 2.

Moenie jouself vlei nie Buzz, dia nie baie nie. My geligte Strom het dieslfde clearance as my 525KTM nou gehad. Al nadeel regtig die 19" vs 21" draadwiel debat.

Gewig? Ja seker n goeie punt maar as 185kg te swaar is of te begin swaar raak kry dan n 50cc, en as die ktm 640 of 690 beter was hoekom dan is hulle so ver agter op verkope teenoor die Tenenere Z? Yamaha het al Dakars gewen nog voor daar Ktm's in Suid Afrika te koop was.

Jare terug toe ek my eerste BM padbike koop vra die ouens wat ek met so swaar bike gaan maak. Ek sal hier ook sÍ wat ek toe vir hulle gesÍ het... Die ding het 'n enjin, ek gaan hom ry, nie rondstoot nie.
...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !
