1. Gasket kit for 98-03 300 EXC, or parts of
2. Piston kit, or parts of( stock bore)

I don't NEED to get the KTM back and running at this point, but I WANT to....and that is how we are dealing with money right now.....getting what we NEED, and not what we WANT.

Thanks for any potential help.
Not on your list but I have a reed valve that the PO removed. Looks still good to my eyes.

Before I put my new tires on, (going to Hatfield-McCoy soon!). I went for a decent road/dirt road ride on the old worn out tires.
I wouldn't want to ride too far on any long open road. But I forget that it is still a fun bike to play around on twisty backroads and dirtroads.
I love it for its single-track ability, but I should use it as a dualsport a little more.

Obligatory pics

Any of you guy's using a aftermarket seat foam? My bike came with a low seat but the foam is beat. I have the stock foam also, I'm gonna try the stock foam next weekend at a 12 hour endurance race. I'm 6 ft. and like the seat hight of the low seat but the vibration coming through the seat makes my vision blurry(and kill my back side). What seat hight, density and manufacture do you guy's like?

It's been a long time since I've been on a 2smoke, so is there any need for a cooling fan? I plan on Iron manning the 24 hour race again this year on the 300. Last year I ran my XRR, it was so muddy that the speeds were very slow and my fan ran none stop with fairly high temps. I havent seen to many folks running fans on the 300.

Loving the SX head on my 300. I did a 45 mile loop on Sunday at 9k' elevation. I was short shifting & lugging all day long. It ran crisp and had a much somewhat stronger low end, and much stronger mid range. I haven't had a chance to check mileage yet, but a visual on my gas tank shows pretty good economy.

Don't know if these are the same conditions , but I helped layout a couple hare scramble and enduro courses in Florida. It consisted of a lot of creeping thru palmettos and pushing aside vines, then stapling course arrows to trees with the engine idling. My 300 has a radiator overflow reservoir in the airbox. Never had an overheating or boil over problem... I can't say the same for myself.

Model Changes

Looking at getting a 300 soon and was wondering how much the bike has changed over the years as far as parts interchangeability.

Thanks,

Z

Hey all,

I want to get a clear fuel tank for my 2008 KTM 300. I would also wouldn't mind just a tiny bit more capacity, but not worried about that really. Any recommendations on which one to go? IMS? Clarke? Acerbis?

Thanks.

Here's what the Acerbis 6.3 gal tank looks like on my 2008 300XC.

That looks good mate, but too much capacity for me. I want to keep it light and slim.

Doesn't weigh that much more than stock especially when it has just 1 or 2 gal. Having said that I do switch to stock tank (easy to do) when I don't need the extra capacity.
