Great bike. Wrung the nuts of a couple of test bikes & recommend the cush drive if you do any mileage on the road. Makes it much more civilised & will no doubt help preserve the transmission.

I love 'em.

Beleive the 40-ish BHP in standard trim can be upped to 52 BHP with a plug-in dongle but I've found 40 enough, even touring. You feel incredibly connected to the bike and it reacts very well to any input, due to both the gearing and weight.

I have the cush drive ready to fit to mine & the Mrs' bikes. A well made piece of kit and includes a complete wheel with hub/spacers etc. We have become more accustomed to the way it rides in non-cush mode over the last 11 months of ownership but I reckon this is a worthwhile upgrade.

Engine is a peach. Hasn't burnt any oil, needs only 4th & 5th on the open road and shows it's competition heretige when you give it some revs.

They are not for everone but they are a refreshing antidote to the current lust for CC and power over real world usability.

I hope your test ride goes well.

Jon

I've fitted a non-cush drive hub to my XT660R and to be honest I really struggle to notice the difference.

Maybe it breaks loose on wet roads a little easier? and possibly when the XT 'splutter' happens it jerks the bike a little, but it isn't that noticeable.

Yes, a complete new wheel with cush drive hub, rubbers and spacers.

You as rider are unlikely to notice, its the transmission which notices.
