I think you should adjust your carb, not just clean it, after you have modified the exhaust.
Try bigger main jet.
If you have RD08, your main jet is probably 148 or even 145. I'd suggest you to try 155 main jet. This will influence greatly on your machine

Also check that the "accelerator pump" on the carb is working, sometimes they seize causing problems at low revs.
They area beside the throttle on the carb, looks like a cam arm.

It sounds like jetting to me to be honest.

The tank came with the bike in 2001, courtesy of the previous owner.

Hi!

Any photos?

Have you checked the spark plug cable?
That can wear a little and it's a really annoying problem, just cut a little bit of it and put the cap again and try.. Also try with a new plug... And check spark with a new plug and the old one..

Just to see if it's an electricity problem, without disarming so much..

The forks are 43mm WP from '00 KTM EXC 300 shorter by 30mm, by 295mm in 265mm . their difference with the oem is huge especially on dirt roads.among others are adjustable in compression and rebound damping

I would be looking at replacing in order of cheapness, ht lead, spark plug, plug cap, coil then ecu if none of the others fix it.

Also try cleaning the carb, instead of buying an ecu just incase it's dirty.
