I own a 13 500 EXC (desmog and FMF Q muffler) and I have tried a 350 EXC with Muffler.
The 500 hands down has better power. But I find the 500 easier to ride in the slow tight ST we have here in Nor Ca.
I can also tell you I get over 100 miles on a tank. But I dont ride wide open all the time.

As far a 11 lbs lighter on the 350 IDK I could not tell when I rode it. Maybe it was because I felt it lacked low rpm snap to raise the front wheel over trail trash.

I rode both and the 350 is way lighter and much more nimble and much easier to ride in the hard stuff and finds traction where the bigger bikes struggle. A 250 with more power. Especially in the very slow sections its a winner...
I'd say the best Enduro bike ever.
