I'm pretty sure its the same as the KLX250's tranny.

So according to this Thread

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ghlight=klx300

Its on the close side.

It's wide compared with a 5-speed, but on the narrow end for 6-speeds. It's an improvement over my other dualsports (KLR650 and KTM LC4E) in this regard.

Got 58+ mpg on the last tank.

If my calcs are correct that gives me a 150 mile range. Yee-haw!!

it has about a 4 to 1 ratio, which is about twice as wide as a 6 speed Husky( 250/450/510) 1000 rpm = 2mph first 8 mph 6th approx

Here's my new KLX 300. I've only put about ten hours on it and so far, its been everything everybody said it would be: FUN!

I would like to put a small rear rack to carry some tools and spares, but I have not found one yet. Also thinking of using a tool tube for the same purpose, but not sure were and how to install it on the MC. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Arrrgghhh Crap!!!!

On they way home from work today I decided to see what my fuel range was.

I had about 190K's on the tank of fuel so I filled up my rear tank and took of for home down the highway.

I hit 202K's and she started dying, I thought that was a bit strange but she came to life when I switched to reserve.

I hit 209K's and she died again, so I pulled of to the side of the road to switch to the rear tank and make sure it had actually run out of fuel.

Thats when I noticed the fuel filter was still full and she was pissing coolant out all over the ground.

I tried to kick her over but she was siezed....

With all the excitement of having my girlfriend back in town I forgot to check the oil.....ARGGHHH...

Jajajaja, Cool!

Is that rack an original part for the KLX 250S? Do you know if it would fit the 07 KLX 300?
