Motorbike: F650 Funduro
Default Yamaha 660Z or 660R

Hey guys, I have moved back from Australia and looking to get a Yamaha XT660.
I have to do all my training and test again as my Australian licence has expired and they won't change it over. After all that messing around My budget wouldn't be as big as I'd like so probably something pre 2010.

Anyways thanks for reading.

Cheers,
Steve

You are planning to go supermoto way with or leave it as dualsport? Good few WRs and CRFs there for supermoto there is one xt660x for sale as well in Limerick, dualsport wise it's all bmw few cheap dominators and expensive Africa's but probably for Ireland all you need is vstrom or versys which you will find shit loads for sale.

Cheers Lukasz. Planning on keeping it dual sport. Might have a look at some v storms and verseys now. I thought they werent great off road though? Mind you it will be light enough off roading and mainly camping.

The license was victorian expired 2 and galf years ago. Provisional.

Hi just gave you breakdown of what's on the market, my experience with those bikes is non existent :) I think I saw few 660s on donedeal, just recommended versys and vstrom course of decent road clearance and accessibility in here. If you want to go hardcore offroading probably look somewhere else but from what I read both doing great in light terrain.

Get a spin on one and see what you think. I drove myself nuts looking for one, bought one and then found it wasn't really good at anything except pootling around country lanes. It's too heavy for any sort of offroad or muddy stuff, the five speed gearbox means that the gearing is a constant compromise on main roads and the vibrations killed my hands if the revs were too high or too low. It's nothing that can't be fixed, but by the time you fit a decent shock and fork springs, get an aftermarket seat, bar risers, kevmod and sort the fuelling, change the sprockets and add a few farkles, you'd have bought a decent F800GS.

I've the 1150GS, but wouldn't be interested in the F800GS - chain is on the wrong side for a start! ;-)
I'll keep a lookout for an already sorted one perhaps - not in a mad rush, and would have to let something go to make room for it too
