So basicly besides colors and graphics,05 and 08 aren't any different.IMHO
They both kickass!
If you can find a nice 250XC,there the same bike cept for 50cc's,and when they need a top end,you can throw a 300cc kit on it.Just say'n.
The new e-starts is a simple bolt-on for the older 300s. I just sold my 450EXCR and plan to replace it with a 300XC-W and dual-sport it.
