I will be picking up this beauty this coming weekend. Gotta do abit of driving but my family and myself will make a weekend of it. (My twin 3 year old girls will love the pool at the hotel I hope)


I can't wait to through a leg over her. My wife allready shut me down on racing the weekend after, She thinks 3 week after surgery is too soon. Oh well, She puts up with the rest of the things I do.

That's slick! Something different to play with,for extreme trail riding I can see where the 2 wheel drive would be neat.

I can't make out if it's a 200 or greater. If its a 200, I think you will be very happy with it based on your weight and riding level. My wife has a 200, and although it's too much for her (12oz fly wheel weight and G2 cam on order), it really is a great bike and I love riding it ST. If Husaberg had a 200, I would have purchased it over the TE250.

It's a 08 300 xcw. I think it's going to be a lot of fun.

Im a regular size guy at 185lbs and 6' tall,I ride my 200XCW on any trail I rode my 300 on.
It goes like stink and is so easy to flick around its just fun! Im always surprized more guys dont ride the 200's.
Its a cheater bike,never gets hot on big climbs,rails corners like a BMX bike. Ive got 170 hours on the OEM top end,I'll put a piston kit in it but it still runs like new.

So far I'm loving it. Hope to get a lot of riding in soon. This bike feels soo light, I bet a 200 feels unreal when tossing it around. Thanks again to all you fellow 2smokers for all the pointers/info.

Dirt Rider weighed one at 283 dry weight,I guess that's pretty light. That was a 4 stroke 450 though.

I rode the new bike to work today, what a gas. 2strokes on the street will get me in trouble.
The 300s center of gravity seems super low and feels very light. But everything feels lighter then a mud covered XRR

The rebuild process of the new bike has begun. One piece at a time.

So far the bike has been a blast to ride. The AWD is very subtle and seamless. The bike is light and flickable(if that's a word). You feel like a rock star with the back end hung out and the front tire pulling you through the corners.

Getting the bike back up to a reliable state is another story. It has taken alot of time and money getting it sorted. A lot of the bearings and seals needed to be replaced on the Christini bits (this bike has TONS of bearings). The bike had been ridden VERY hard. The fork tubes dented, top clamp bent, lots of missing hardware, motor had been overheated just to name off afew things. But it has been fun rebuilding the bike and tweaking it to fit my riding style.

The only on going problem I have been dealing with is the clutch adjustment for the front wheel drive, it has required constant adjustments.

Here is a pic of some new toys I got for her. Rekluse and a Scott's.

Not sure which Rekluse you have in there? The Core exp maybe? I can't tell from the picture, but I have had 3 z start pros in my past 3 KTMs. I tried the core exp, and it constantly slipped, etc., so I went back to the z start pro, granted, I don't have a 2x2 either... I'm on a 2012 KTM 300xc atm.

It is the Core EXP. That's a little concerning to hear about the EXP slipping. Did you have the adjustable hyd. slave cylinder? I haven't put very many miles on the Rekluse to know how well it will hold up. The clutch I have been having troubles with is the front drive clutch. This is what it looked like when I first got the bike.



Missing friction disc's and fried remaining clutch parts

Rekluse had issues with the EXP on the 300's.

I bought one for my 11 XCW300, I fried the throwout bearing end.
Rekluse thought it would be a good idea to make the throwout bearing end bearingless.

The rod welded itself to the throwout bearing.



Rekluse redesigned the EXP kit to use the stock throwout bearing.

I didn't want to wait the three weeks for the parts to fix my clutch so I went with the Core EXP.

I have never had an issue with clutch slippage.
I adjusted it the way Rekluse said to adjust it and I have not adjusted it since then.
