Mine and My chica shortly before removing another turn signal.
That's Great, but it is "Not an Adventure bike" for me, that is why I have a GS ADV, I am keeping my 300 for the tight, tuff , nasty single track. so keeping the mass down is important.
The bike is the most reliable bike I have ever owned and it is more than capable of going or doing what ever you want, but when it comes to long trips I like 85hp and 80mph on the dirt.

But you don't have to fill up the gas tank, and the wings on the Acerbis tank are light protection for the radiators.

True, Ya never know I might get one, Gas is like money, you always feel better when you have more than you need.

If your not going to use the extra fuel the Acerbis has to offer can I have it?... I mean I woulden't bother.

It does make it noticeably wider between your legs.

I only have one because I need all the fuel I can get with the places I ride.

55mph 7200rpm+-
GPS SPEEDS as the speedo says 10 over, must be made by BMW

You seem to be doing a great job with the hybrid klx250/300... Any info on whether the 6th (trans. ratio) gear in the 250s is taller than the one in the 300? I would love to go back down a tooth in the front but when I do ,the cruising speed drops 5mph....

Do you know if the 250 stator would fit in the 300??
I just put a dynojet kit in my carb and my gas mileage plummited to 35 mpg. The bike is much more responsive, but it still is having some problems starting and idleing. I heard the needles on the newer kits get stuck some. What would the symptoms of that??

06 and 07 KLX250 has the same trans as the 300
on the 09 KLX they changed the ratios in the wrong direction(IMO). thats why I had to find a leftover 07, parts are interchangeable, 09 it is mostly different, shock, linkage, forks,bodywork, etc.

I believe you would have to change the crank, the crank is longer I was told, I will have to look at them side by side, I will post the results when I find out.
I have two 300 carbs, and would play with the jetting on both and I never was happy with the DynoJet needle, I found my best results with the stock needle
128 main, 35 pilot , stock needle clip in the top groove, never drilled the slide, and runs great at all alt, 4500-11500

I already drilled the slide. Does that screw me??

What kind of gas mileage did you get??

So I'm assuming the 6th gear on the 07 is quite a bit higher?? And it is interchangable with a 2000 transmission??

Nevermind, I re read the post. The 06 - 07 are the same as the 300 right??

nother question, Is the stock pilot jet a #35?? Ron Ayers only lists a #35.

YES same gears

Yes 128main and 35 pilot are stock, all I had to do was lower my needle and my bike runs great, never could get it dialed with the DynoJet needle installed. May be it was just my Carb, But the bike does run very well, gets good mpg's and runs without any sputter at any alt. can't ask for more, That is the advantage of the CV carb.
I thought of doing Thumper racing's new 340 kit but knowing how well I had my bike dialed I just kept it a 300, it will pull my fat ass up any gnarley trail I can find, Sure it won't beat a 450 on a hillclimb or a drag race, but it will stand it's own on any single track, and won't wear you out like a big bore can.

?
You can't put the electric start on without changing the crank (and yes they are noticeably longer), but I am running the stator from my 04 250 in the 97 300 engine.

The only difficulty was that the wires enter the case at a different place on the non electric start bike so you have to cut the heat shrink casing on the wires to get enough wire to pull the ummm... Little black box thingy in there (I think somebody called it the exciter coil?) to screw in to the right place.


And while were on the subject does anyone know how many watts the 250 and the 300 stator puts out?

75-90 watts for the 300
220-240 for the 250
So I was told
