Good to see a few 350 owners starting to lurk about again. I was starting to think everyone bought the 500.
I'm also happily running 14/48 (116 links). It's a tad tall for tight trails, but good compromise for mixed trail and road. So far after 40hrs, there's normal wear on the chainguard with this gearing.
Finally, talked my dealer into loading the AUS EXC FI map into my US EXC. Believe it's the same map loaded in XCW-F's. With the richer map, no more popping on decel and engine is definitely running smoother. Also removed the exhaust blockage (screen), much better hit now in all RPMs without spending any dollars.
